Phylogenetic tree of 17-kDa-gltA-sca1-sca4-ompA-ompB concatenated sequences of R. raoultii in blood from patient, tick detached from patient and shepherds (▲). The target nucleotide sequences were compared to sequences that were available in public databases using BLAST ( The tree was constructed on the basis of maximum-likelihood (ML; 1000 bootstrap replicates) of concatenated sequence data of six genes (17-kDa-gltA-sca1-sca4-ompA-ompB) using Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis (MEGA, version 7.0; The sequences of R. bellii were used as the outgroup
