Schematic representation of the genes conserved in R. africae but lost by highly pathogenic rickettsiae. Genes highlighted in yellow are upregulated at 37°C. The state of a gene is represented by a small box colored in green (full-length), blue (pseudogene), red (fragment), orange (remnant) or black (absent). Gene numbers are indicated in the left column.
