From: Pyrosequencing-based analysis reveals a novel capsular gene cluster in a KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae clinical isolate identified in Brazil

Figure 4

Model of regulation in the  K. pneumoniae  Kp13  cps  cluster. Only selected genes are shown. The promoters are depicted as upside-down triangles, and the JUMPStart element is shown as a hexagon. The rectangles under each cluster represent transcriptional units, and the stems are possible Rho-independent attenuators. P3 could either drive the transcription of rmlB through orf19 or there could be other promoters (P4, P5 or P6). The possible transcriptional units are depicted.
