a Neighbour-joining analysis of the phylogenetic relationship of the Acidic 60S Ribosomal protein P0 orthologues in ticks. OeRPP0, Ornithodoros erraticus ribosomal protein P0 (red dot). Uniprot entry names are shown for the other sequences: AMBAM, Amblyomma americanum; AMBCA, A. cajennense; AMBMA, A. maculatum; AMBTR; A. triste; DERNI, Dermacentor nitens; HAELO, Haemaphysalis longicornis; HYAEX, Hyalomma excavatum; IXORI, Ixodes ricinus; IXOSC, I. scapularis; ORNER, Ornithodoros erraticus; ORNMO, O. moubata; ORNTU, O. turicata; RHIHA, Rhipicephalus haemaphysaloides; RHIMP, R. microplus; RHIPU, R. pulchellus; RHISA, R. sanguineus; RHIZA, R. zambeziensis. Evolutionary distances were computed using the Poisson correction method. Branch support values (10,000 bootstraps) for the nodes are indicated. b Linear B-cell epitope predictions for OeRPP0. The sequence of the protein is represented in triplicate showing the ABCpred (yellow), BCEpred (blue) and BepiPred-2.0 (green) predictions. The amino acids in epitopes predicted by at least two algorithms were highlighted in boxes. The 8 amino acids that form the 23S rRNA interface are in bold red and the 20 ones that form the interface with the L7/L12 ribosomal proteins are in bold purple
