n1_4mer:GRV/n1_4mer:RV = (Global Relative Variance of OU patterns) / (Local Relative Variance of OU patterns)
n0_4mer:D = Distance between local and global OU patterns
n0_4mer:PS = Distance between 2 strands of same DNA molecule
Selected loci indicated by large D, increased GRV associated with decreased RV and moderate increase in PS
NC_009900: Rickettsia massiliae MTU5, complete genome NCBI: NC_009900 Host Lineage: Rickettsia massiliae; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Rickettsia massiliae MTU5 was isolated from the tick Rhipicephalus turanicus collected from horses in Le Sambuc, Bouches-du Rhone, France. Members of this genus, like other Rickettsial organisms such as Neorickettsia and Anaplasma, are obligate intracellular pathogens. In both groups, the bacteria are transmitted via an insect, usually a tick, to a host organism where they target endothelial cells and sometimes macrophages. They attach via an adhesin, rickettsial outer membrane protein A, and are internalized where they persist as cytoplasmically free organisms. Rickettsia massiliae is a member of the spotted fever group of the Rickettsiales and has been isolated from ticks in Europe and Africa. Rickettsia massiliae does not appear to cause disease in humans.
