Figure 3

Maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree of rickettsia based of the ompA gene partial sequence (510nt) and showing the phylogenetic placement of the novel sequences compared with rickettsia associated. The tree was computed by using MEGA5 (http://www.megasoftware.net). The Tamura 3-parameter model with gamma- distributed rate heterogeneity and a proportion of invariant sites (T92 + G + I) was selected as the best fit evolutionary model according to the Bayesian information criterion calculated with MEGA5. The branch labels include GenBank accession number and species or strain.
