  1. a MglB partner is denoted as an open reading frame immediately upstream from MglA with an identifiable Roadblock/LC7 motif. bValues for identity and positives (similarity) are relative to the 195 amino acid protein MglA from Myxococcus xanthus. BLAST analysis was performed as described [63]. Identity and positives show the number of identical (positive) residues as a fraction of the total number of residues used for alignment. This fraction is given beneath as a percentage.
