Genetic and transcriptional organization of the paaABCDE and BCAL0211-BCAL0210 gene clusters. A) Fragment of chromosome 1 of B. cenocepacia J2315 containing the paaABCDE and BCAL0211-0210 gene clusters. The vertical arrow indicates the location of the inserted pJH9. Horizontal arrows represent transcriptional units (see B). B) RT-PCR analysis of the intergenic regions of the paaABCDE and BCAL0211-0210 gene clusters. 500 bp RT-PCR amplified DNA bands correspond to intergenic regions.
