Figure 2. Genome Comparisons of R. felis and R. conorii. From: The Genome Sequence of Rickettsia felis Identifies the First Putative Conjugative Plasmid in an Obligate Intracellular Parasite.

Red dots represent homologous genomic segments greater than 150 bp identified by BLASTN (E-value < 10−3).
(A) Comparison between R. felis and R. conorii chromosomes. Vertical and horizontal green lines indicate the positions of transposase ORFs in R. felis and in R. conorii, respectively.
(B) Self-comparison of R. felis chromosome.

Figure 3. Visualization of R. felis Pili by Transmission Electron Microscopy. From: The Genome Sequence of Rickettsia felis Identifies the First Putative Conjugative Plasmid in an Obligate Intracellular Parasite.

Bacteria collected from the supernatant of R. felis–infected XTC cells were negatively stained.
(A) Sexual pilus observed between two bacteria.
(B) R. felis also possesses small appendages likely to be fimbriae pili.

Figure 1. Circular Representation of R. felis, R. conorii, and R. prowazekii Genomes. From: The Genome Sequence of Rickettsia felis Identifies the First Putative Conjugative Plasmid in an Obligate Intracellular Parasite.

The three outer circles represent the chromosomes of R. felis, R. conorii, and R. prowazekii, respectively, with specific ORFs colored in red and nonspecific ORFs colored in black. Colinear genome fragments are highlighted by a shared background color, with their relative orientations indicated by arrows. The two inner circles represent two R. felis plasmids (pRF and pRFδ), with ORFs in the region unique to pRF colored in red.
