Figure 2

Phylogenetic tree, representing position of Rickettsia heilongjiangensis. The tree was made using MEGA 2.1 software after alignment of both portions of ompA genes obtained from GenBank and sequenced during this study by GENETIX-WIN 5.1 software. The scale represents a number of substitutions per base per indicated horizontal distance. The numbers present at nodes of the tree represent the number of bootstrap replicates of 100 that display the indicated sequence groupings.
