Organisation of the C. pneumoniae plasticity zone. A comparison of the C. pneumoniae koala LPCoLN and human AR39 genomes revealed evidence of fragmentation, gene decay, gene gain/loss in the plasticity zone. Genes are labelled with the published locus numbers. Lines connect orthologs. Role categories and colours are as follows: fatty acid and phospholipid metabolism, magenta; conserved hypothetical proteins, blue; cell envelope, light green; hypothetical proteins, black; biosynthesis of purines, pyrimidines, nucleosides, and nucleotides, orange; energy metabolism, light gray. Arrows indicate the direction of transcription.
