arOmpA (rickettsial outer membrane protein A). Although the presence of rOmpA gene sequences or gene product have not been shown in TG rickettsiae recently, DNA sequences fcorresponding to rOmpA were shown in the genome of R. prowazekii (24).
bAlso referred to rOmpB.
cAlso referred to as rickettsial inner membrane protein A.
dHemolysis of sheep red cells/plaque formation.
eTyphus group/spotted fever group rickettsiae.
