A schematic diagram showing the 5-hydroxyectoine biosynthesis gene cluster (strep3082-3085) that is conserved in the five Streptomyces genomes. The chromosome location of this cluster in each respective genome is: SCO1857-1873 for S. coelicolor, SAV_6407-6388 for S. avermitilis, SBI_08140-08124 for S. bingchenggensis, SGR_5639-5623 for S. griseus, SCAB_70821-70641 for S. scabiei. Blue: strep3082 (ectA), L-2,4-diaminobutyric acid acetyltransferase; magenta: strep3083 (ectB), L-2,4-diaminobutyrate aminotransferase; green: strep3084 (ectC), ectoine synthase; orange: strep3085 (ectD), ectoine hydroxylase; black: core genome components; gray: dispensable genome components; white: species-specific genes.
