Figure. Phylogenetic analysis of Rickettsia isolate from patient with Japanese spotted fever in Anhui Province and isolate from Haemaphysalis longicornis tick in Shandong Province, China, 2013 (black dots), compared with reference isolates. Unrooted neighbor-joining trees of 16S rRNA gene (A) and 17-kDa protein gene (B) were constructed by using MEGA 5.2 (https://www.megasoftware.net/) and 1,000 bootstrap replications. Scale bar represents substitutions per nucleotide.
