Fig. 3. Phylogenetic tree of decapod crustacean VGs. This unrooted tree was generated by PHYLIP software (Felsenstein 1989) using the neighbor-joining method (Saito and Nei 1987). The scale bar corresponds to units of estimated evolutional distance. Bootstrap values were calculated by PHYLIP. Species names and GenBank accession numbers of full-length amino acid sequences used are as follows: Ca. sapidus, DQ314748; Cha. feriatus, AY724676; Che. quadricarinatus, AF306784; Fe. chinensis, DQ354690; Fe. merguiensis, AY499620; Ho. americanus, EF422415; Li. vannamei, AY321153; Mac. rosenbergii, AB056458; Mar. japonicus, AB033719; Me. ensis 1 (MeVg1), AF548364; Me. ensis 2 (MeVg2), AY530205; Pan. hypsinotus, AB117524; Pe. monodon, DQ288843; Pe. semisulcatus, AY051318; Po. trituberculatus, DQ000638; and Up. major, AB365125.
