From: Genesis of a novel Shigella flexneri serotype by sequential infection of serotype-converting bacteriophages SfX and SfI

Figure 2

Genetic organization of prophage genomes of SfX and/or SfI in S. flexneri 036_X and 036_1d. The prophage genomes of SfX and/or SfI are highlighted in yellow and pink respectively. The conserved genes of the host strain were shown in different colors: proA, gray; yaiC, yellow; IS600 ORF1 and ORF2, brown; IS629 ORF1 and ORF2, orange; the putative integrase gene (int), white. The integration sites attB, attL and attR are indicated in thick line. After strain name in brackets is the serotype of the strain.
