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

Figure 6

Genetic comparison between A. actinomycetemcomitans strains with or without the cdt-island.

Comparison of the genetic locus of the cdt-island in strain D7S-1 and the comparable locus in strain SC1083. The homologous sulfatase and Gly-rRNA between strains are colored in dark blue and red, respectively. Several genes encoding hypothetical proteins and other proteins in the cdt-island of strain D7S-1 are not indicated in the map (see Table S3 for a full list of genes on the island). The comparison shows that strain SC1083 is missing the ∼14 kb cdt-island.
