TheG. lovleyistrain SZ chromosomal genomic island encoding the putative F-type conjugative pilustra-gene cluster (Glov_0304 to Glov_0322) and the orthologous gene clusters on the chromosome and 202 kbp plasmid pPRO1 ofP. propionicus. Black ORFs represent genes homologous to conjugative pilus cluster core genes, likely functioning in pore complex assembly and mating pair stabilization. Gray ORFs are homologous to F-type conjugative pilus accessory genes while unshaded ORFs lack inferred function.
