Novel Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiosis, Brazil
Figure 2. Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Rickettsia sp. strain Atlantic rainforest detected in a patient from the State of São Paulo, Brazil. A) A total of 740 unambiguously aligned nucleotide sites of the rickettsial outer membrane protein (ompB) gene were subjected to analysis. B) A total of 463 unambiguously aligned nucleotide sites of the rickettsial ompA gene were subjected to analysis. Bootstrap values >50% are shown at the nodes. Numbers in brackets are GenBank accession numbers. The strain isolated in this study is indicated in boldface. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site.
