Collection details and map1 sequence homologies of the positive ticks. Collection details for the 36 Amblyomma americanum harboring DNA from the Panola Mountain Ehrlichia sp. (PME) are shown, including the source of the tick, date of collection, coinfectionn status, and homology of the map1 DNA amplicons to reference sequences for PME.

a: Percent homology to the reference sequence for PME, GenBank: DQ324368

b: Only the internal, nested fragment was available for sequencing.

c: Age and gender not recorded.

d: The map1 PCR amplicon was a mixture of more than one sequence, and the product was cloned prior to sequencing.
