A Taxonomy of Bacterial Microcompartment Loci Constructed by a Novel Scoring Method

Figure 4

Representative BMC Loci.

Cartoon representation of the most highly conserved contiguous region of the Representative Loci, in order of appearance in the text. Where a (sub)type is dominated by many highly syntenic examples from one or two species, locus bounds were chosen based on conservation across all species in the (sub)type. Locus statistics are represented in the “S (L/G)” column: “S” represents number of species that contain the locus, “L” represents the number of loci, and “G” represents the number of genomes that encode the locus. Genes are color-coded according to their annotation: blue, BMC-H; cyan, BMC-T; yellow, BMC-P; red, aldehyde dehydrogenase; green, iron-containing alcohol dehydrogenase; green diagonal hash, other putative alcohol dehydrogenases; solid pink, pduL-type phosphotransacylase; pink diagonal hash, pta-type phosphotransacylase; purple diagonal hash, RuBisCO large and small subunits; purple vertical hash, ethanolamine ammonia lyase subunits; purple crosshatch, propanediol dehydratase subunits; purple horizontal hash, glycyl radical enzyme and activase; dotted purple, aldolase; solid purple, aminotransferase; brown, regulatory element including two-component signaling elements; orange, transporter; teal, actin/parA/pduV/eutP-like. Genes colored gray indicate that the gene is present in over 50% of members in the locus (sub)type described (e.g. GRM1), and are in over 50% of members of at least one other locus (sub)type (e.g. found in GRM1 and GRM3). Genes colored black indicate that the gene is present in over 50% of members in the locus (sub)type described and not present in over 50% of members of any other locus (sub)type. Genes colored white are those that are present in the Representative Locus but are not present in over 50% of members of that locus (sub)type. Representative Loci are highlighted in yellow in Dataset S1.
