The C. burnetii lipid profile changes during LCV to SCV transition. Lipids were isolated from 4, 7, and 14 day C. burnetii axenic cultures to represent different stages of the developmental cycle. Lipids were analyzed by TLC and spotted according to mass: C. burnetii = 550 μg, E. coli = 200 μg. Lipid species 1, 2, and 3 were enriched in the SCV while phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylglycerol were diminished. Abbreviations: CL, cardiolipin; PG, phosphatidylglycerol; PE, phosphatidylethanolamine
