Figure 1: Antioxidant capacity of B. longum subsp. longum strains paired with the MLSA dendrogram. On the left, Jukes-Cantor neighbor-joining dendrogram constructed using the concatenated sequences of five loci (mutT1, ahpC, trx, nrdA, and ppk). Strains marked with a blue dot are the strains selected for milk fermentation. The length of the branches expressed in units of substitutions per site of the sequence alignment is indicated by the scale bar. On the right, oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) values correspond to the weighted means determined by ANCOVA. The error bar represents the standard error (SE).
