Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree of Rickettsia conorii identified from natural Mediterranean spotted fever foci, Qingdao, China. Bold text indicates R. conorii obtained from a striped field mouse (Apodemus agrarius) captured in 2015. The maximum-likelihood tree is based on the concatenated sequences of rrs, htrA, ompA, and ompB genes of Rickettsia species. Numbers at the nodes indicated the percentage of bootstrap proportions with 1,000 replicates; only bootstrap values >70% are shown. The reference sequences are indicated by the GenBank accession number, name of species, host, and country of isolation. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
