Plasmid PL6-associated virus genes in haloarchaea.

Alignment of genomic regions of Haloarcula marismortui (Hmar), Haloferax volcanii (Hvol), Halomicrobium mukohataei (Hmuk), Halorhabdus utahensis (Huta), Natronomonas pharaonis (Napha), Archaeoglobus fulgidus (Archaeoglobus) and Natrialba magadii (Nmag) with the corresponding genes of haloviruses His2, HRPV-1 and plasmid pHK2 (top) and Hqr. walsbyi C23T plasmid PL6A (bottom). Locus tags or ORF numbers are given for most ORFs. Homologues of the capsid protein genes of His2 are colour coded (red, green, blue and grey). Homologues of PL6 ORF2 genes are coloured yellow. Integrase (Int) and transposase (Tnp) genes are coloured black. Dashed lines indicate related genes (other than those colour coded) that occur between two or more genomes. Asterisks within the His2 VP1 ORF and its homologues indicate a predicted signal sequence. Genomic position scales are indicated for each genome in kilobase pairs.
