The heat-shock protein (GroEL) genes of Anaplasma marginale, Ehrlichia muris and 'Ehrlichia platys' were sequenced and compared with the GroEL of other species of Ehrlichia. The GroEL amino acid sequences of A. marginale and 'E. platys' were most similar to the GroEL sequence of Ehrlichia phagocytophila, with which they formed one group with 6-10% divergence. The E. muris GroEL was most closely related to the GroEL of two unclassified strains (HF-565 and Anan), then to Ehrlichia chaffeensis… CONTINUE READING
