Comparative analysis of the C. pneumoniae polymorphic membrane proteins (Pmps). A comparison of the 21 Pmps revealed a high degree of sequence polymorphism and indels between the koala LPCoLN and human AR39, CWL029 and TW183 isolates. The TW183 and J138 isolates were well-conserved and therefore, TW183 also represents J138 in this figure. Arrows indicate the direction of transcription: green arrows show typical pmp characteristics, red arrows represent pseudogenes (numbers below arrows indicate stop codon position), and white arrows represent proteins with no relation to pmps (note the same orientation as pmpG10). Dashed lines indicate truncated products.
