Molecular phylogenetic analysis by Maximum Likelihood method. The evolutionary history was inferred by using the Maximum Likelihood method based on the Tamura-Nei model [38]. The tree with the highest log likelihood (-4636.3022) is shown. The percentage of trees in which the associated taxa clustered together is shown next to the branches. Initial tree(s) for the heuristic search were obtained automatically by applying Neighbor-Join and BioNJ algorithms to a matrix of pairwise distances estimated using the Maximum Composite Likelihood (MCL) approach, and then selecting the topology with superior log likelihood value. The analysis involved 65 nucleotide sequences. All positions containing gaps and missing data were eliminated. There were a total of 1,317 positions in the final dataset. Evolutionary analyses were conducted in MEGA7 [39]. Asterisk (*) indicates the selected isolate from this study. Double asterisk (**) indicates the comparable strain in this study. Triple asterisk (***) indicates the parental strain of the comparable strain
