Figure 1

The cbbR - cbbL1 intergenic regions of A. ferrooxidans strains Fe1 and ATCC 23270. (A) DNA sequence of cbbR-cbbL1 intergenic region of A. ferrooxidans Fe1 showing two TNA-N7-TNA CbbR-binding regions (boxed sequences) and experimentally verified nucleotides protected by CbbR binding (*) and σ70 promoter regions (-10 and -35 sites) (Modified from [5], with permission of the publisher). (B) Logos derived from multiple sequence alignments of the cbbR-cbbL1 intergenic region of eight bacteria showing conservation of the CbbR-binding sites (more information in additional file 3). (C) Prediction of CbbR-binding sites and σ70 promoter regions in the cbbR-cbbL1 intergenic region of A. ferrooxidans ATCC 23270 by comparison with experimentally verified regions of A. ferrooxidans Fe1 and using the information derived from Logos.
