Genome maps of recombinant strains, derived from complete nucleotide sequence analysis. The colors used in recombinant maps indicate the parental genotype, as is indicated at the top of the figure. The Tet(C) island is originally from C. suis R19. The approximate location of the genetic markers used in the construction of the recombinant genomes is shown above the RC-J/6276tet genome map. Below each strain name is the antibiotic resistance markers that the recombinant strain carries. The bracket and number below each genome map indicate the largest size of contiguous integrated DNA. The small brackets above each genome map indicate crossover regions that were confirmed by PCR amplification and Sanger sequencing.
