the rickettsia endosymbiont of ixodes pacificus contains all the genes of de novo folate biosynthesis.ticks and other arthropods often are hosts to nutrient providing bacterial endosymbionts, which contribute to their host's fitness by supplying nutrients such as vitamins and amino acids. it has been detected, in our lab, that ixodes pacificus is host to rickettsia species phylotype g021. this endosymbiont is predominantly present, and 100% maternally transmitted in i. pacificus. to study roles of phylotype g021 in i. pacificus, bioinformatic and molecular approaches were carried out. mummer gen ...201526650541
