Figure 5

Comparison of partial sequenced toxin plasmid pBCE4810 to toxin plasmids from B. cereus group members. The genetic region responsible for cereulide production in emetic strains was compared to the B. anthracis toxin-encoding plasmid pXO1, to pBCXO1 from B. cereus G9241 capable of causing an anthrax-like illness, to pBc10987 from B. cereus ATCC 10987 and to pBCEL1519 from the emetic-like strain NVH1519-00. For CDS designation of pBCE and pBCEL see Table 2. II: Group I intron; III: Group II intron.
