Abstract

Biological and geographic heterogeneity of anthropozoonosis caused by Anaplasma phagocytophilum is poorly understood. Seven North American A. phagocytophilum strains were compared by PFGE. The average genome size was 1.58 Mbp, and restriction patterns were identical. New World strains of A. phagocytophilum have a large genome and a high degree of genetic uniformity.
