(a) A BLASTP query of WOVitA1’s gwv_1093 N terminus reveals homologues in mosquitoes, ants, beetles, a mealy bug, a solitary bee and one obligate intracellular gammaproteobacteria. Bayesian phylogenetic trees were constructed based on (b) a 137-aa alignment of all homologues with E-value <e−40 using the LG+G model of evolution. (c) To resolve taxa closest to phage WO, trees were reconstructed based on a 627-aa alignment of all homologues with an E-value of 0 using the JTT+I+G model of evolution. Isoforms were removed from each alignment. Both trees are unrooted. Consensus support values are shown at the nodes. Chromosomal neighbourhood analyses of available animal genome sequences indicate that animal homologues to the phage WO protein are on contigs with other animal genes. Scale bar, 1,000 amino acids.
