Query: NC_017049:993863 Rickettsia prowazekii str. Chernikova chromosome, complete genome

Lineage: Rickettsia prowazekii; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This species is the causal agent of typhus. The bacteria are transmitted via an insect, usually a tick, to a host organism, in this case humans, 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. Transovarial transmission (from mother to offspring) occurs in the invertebrate host.

Subject: NC_007109:1335037 Rickettsia felis URRWXCal2, complete genome

Lineage: Rickettsia felis; Rickettsia; Rickettsiaceae; Rickettsiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism was first isolated from cat fleas. It is an obligate intracellular pathogen and is transmitted transovarially in fleas. It is found associated with some human illnesses, and belongs to the spotted-fever group of Rickettsia.
