Abstract

The name sp. nov. (type strain is strain B) is proposed for a member of the spotted fever group (SFG) rickettsiae which was isolated from ticks in Slovakia in 1968, and was recently implicated in human febrile illness. This rickettsia can be phenotypically distinguished from other SFG rickettsiae by microimmunofluorescence serotyping, SDS-PAGE, Western blotting and mAbs. Genotypic differences between and the other SFG representatives can be demonstrated by PCR-RFLP analysis, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and sequencing of 16S rRNA, and genes.
