A 73-kb metabolic island in V. parahaemolyticus. a. Detailed analysis of 73-kb metabolic island identified in chromosome 2 of CDC_K4557, which was missing from RIMD2210633. Arrows indicate ORFs and ORFs with identical color indicate similar function. Gray arrows, genes coding hypothetical and other functional proteins. Black arrow represents a transposase (Tnp). b. Detailed analysis of the citrate fermentation cluster in CDC_K4557 and comparison of the same region in V. cholerae. c. Citrate fermentation in Simmons citrate slant. Conversion of green slant to blue indicates citrate utilization
