B. pinnipedialis B2/94 specific 67 kbp genome fragment and corresponding locus in B. ovis and B. microti. Schematic representation of the genome fragments surrounding the position of the 67 kbp insert in the genome of B. pinnipedialis B2/94, reduced to a 30 kbp fragment in B. ovis ATCC 25840 and absent from B. microti CCM 4915. Black arrows represent protein coding genes and red arrows pseudogenes. Orthologous protein coding genes present in several genomes are shown linked by grey parallelograms. Coordinates along the different genomes are also indicated. Locus names are abbreviated to their suffix, except for the first locus of a line. The red stars indicate the IS711 insertion element, present in a single copy in B. microti and in two copies, at both sides of the insert in B. pinnipedialis and B. ovis. Colored rectangles indicate groups of genes that are repeated in the representation to increase legibility of the drawing.
