Figure 1

Biosynthetic gene cluster for cereulide synthesis. The domain organization of the structural cereulide synthetase genes cesA and cesB is indicated (see Results for details) and the flanking regions showing homologies to toxin plasmids from B. cereus group members are printed as hatched boxes. For details on CDS designation see Table 2. The bars refer to probes used to test the conservation of ces genes in the B. cereus group (see Table 3) Inset: Structure of cereulide according to [13].
