Identification of the Pangenome and Its Components in 14 Distinct Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans Strains by Comparative Genomic Analysis

Figure 4

Pair-wise genomic comparisons among A. actinomycetemcomitans strains.

A heat map of the genome variation among 14 A. actinomycetemcomitans strains is shown. The numbers in the box show the % of protein-coding genes found in one genome (left) but not another. The data are organized by serotypes; a (D17P3, D7S-1, and H5P-1), d (I63B), e (SC1083), e (SCC393), f (D18P1), b (HK1651, ANH9381, SCC1398, I23C), c (D11S-1, D17P2, SCC2302). The patterns of genome similarity mirror those found in phylogenetic analysis by 16S rRNA gene sequences or 25 housekeeping genes shown in Figures 1 and 2. The numbers in parenthesis on the left of the map indicate the numbers of protein-coding genes.
