  1. a Rickettsiale and Rickettsia specific proteins were identified by whole-genome BLAST searches using protein sequences as probes from the fully sequenced R. prowazekii genome. The RP numbers refer to the protein identification number in the R. prowazekii genome. Other details are as in Table 1 and in Methods section. Additional abbreviations: Camp., Campylobacter; Ehr. chaf., Ehrlichia chaffeensis; Leg. pneu., Legionella pneumophila; M. thermo., Moorella thermoacetica; Myc. pulm., Mycoplasma pulmonis; Xyl. fast., Xylella fastidiosa.
  2. b,cBLAST hits for the family Anaplasmataceae do not show homology over the entire range of the protein and may represent a conserved protein domain.
  3. dBLAST hits for other Rickettsia strains are longer (497 aa) but contain a region that is almost completely homologous to the query sequence.
