Figure 1

Schematic representation of the rgg 0182 and rgg 1358 loci (A) and of the corresponding proteins (B). Although the rgg 0182 and rgg 1358 loci present analogies (A), they encoded distinct proteins (B). Numbers in panel A indicate the position of nucleotides, with the +1 position being that of the first nucleotide of the rgg 0182 gene. The "deletion fragment" corresponds to the deleted portion of the rgg 0182 gene in the Δrgg 0182 mutant. The broken arrows indicate the promoters. Pshp 0182 and Ppep 0182 materialized the position of the 126 bp and 165 bp PCR fragment respectively used in EMSA. In panel B, amino acids sequence identities are indicated in percent. HTH indicated the Helix-Turn-Helix-XRE motif.
