Schematic representation of the elrA operon in strains used. In E. faecalis WT elrA is followed by four genes encoding proteins of unknown function (OG1RF_12054 or elrB to OG1RF_12051 or elrE). The gene products are all predicted secreted proteins with an amino-terminal signal peptide. ElrA, ElrC and ElrD display a C-terminal WxL domain. ElrB possess a carboxy-terminal LPxTG anchor. ElrE belongs to the DUF916 family protein and has a predicted C-terminal transmembrane anchor. In P+-elrA-E the natural elrA promoter was replaced by the constitutive promoter of the kanamycin resistance gene (P aphA3 ). The P+-elrA-E strain was used as recipient for all mutant constructions
