Coevolution of aah: A dps-Like Gene with the Host Bacterium Revealed by Comparative Genomic Analysis

Figure 4

Genomic syntenies on Actinobacterial genomes surrounding the dps-like genes. The genomic sequences have been arbitrarily arranged so that all dps-like genes are transcribed to the right-hand side. Genome sizes were shown in brackets. (a) Alignment of the genomic segments of M. arborescens SE14, L. xyli, and T. whipplei. (b) Alignment of the genomic sequences of three Corynebacterium species. (c) Alignment of the genome of some other Actinobacteria. Regions without interesting gene were omitted and denoted as double slashes with the number of omitted bases showing underneath. The dps-like genes are depicted as black; other conserved genes are in gray labelled with roman numbers: Ia, ATP-dependent Clp protease ATPase; Ib, ATP-dependent Clp protease proteolytic subunits 2; Ic, ATP-dependent Clp protease proteolytic subunit 1; II, FKBP-type peptidyl-prolyl isomerase; III, formamidopyrimidine–DNA glycosylase; IV, ribose 5-phosphate isomerase; V, aminopeptidase N; VIa, ABC transporter ATPase; VIb, ABC transporter membrane component; VII, Malic enzyme; VIII, Zinc-binding dehydrogenases; IX, Methylated DNA-protein cysteine methyltransferase; X, Putative integral membrane protein; XI, MarR family transcriptional regulators; XII, Penicillin-binding protein.
