Figure 1: (a) Schematic representation of fibE gene and its corresponding regions, presequence, prosequence, and AQSV motifs by following the mature sequence and internal sequence. (b) Direct identification of the mature sequence fibEma of Bacillus belonging to group 1. MW: molecular weight. (c) Amplification of internal sequence of fibE (fibEss). Bs: B. subtilis. Ba: B. amyloliquefaciens, Bl: B. licheniformis, Bp: Bacillus pumilus, Bal: B. altitudinis, Bsa: Bacillus safensis, Bat: Bacillus atrophaeus, and Bm: B. mojavensis.
