Fig. 1

Bioinformatics analysis of the iaaL and matE genes in the P. syringae complex. a Gene organization of the matE and iaaL loci in nine strains of the P. syringae complex. Arrows indicate the direction of transcription and the relative sizes of the genes in the genome of the indicated strains except for the hopR1 gene, whose size is longer than that shown in this figure. White arrows, genes encoding hypothetical proteins; gray arrows, genes with known functions. GS genomospecies [62]; IS insertion sequence (bold-lined gray arrows); Group, Multi-Locus Sequence Typing (MLST) groups [22, 39]. Double bars indicate the end of a contig in the corresponding draft genome. The P. syringae groups 1, 3 and 4 [39, 63, 64] correspond to genomospecies (GS) 3, 2 and 4, respectively. b Multiple nucleotide sequence alignment of matE and iaaL putative promoters. Asterisks indicate nucleotides conserved in all strains analyzed. DNA sequences were downloaded from the ASAP database ( Red squares show the consensus motif of the hrp box sequences. −1 and −2 indicate the two different matE alleles encoded in the genome of P. savastanoi pv. savastanoi NCPPB3335, AER-0005392 and AER-0005391 [65], respectively
