A summary of the genes involved in the synthesis and mobilization of the different storage compounds within the 16 cyanobactrial strains. Black dots represent the number of genes associated with a CLOG assigned to the specific enzymatic function. Columns correspond to different CLOGs that may be assigned to the same enzymatic activity. Abbreviations are: AGP: ADP glucose pyrophosphorylase (EC 2.7.7.27), GS: Glycogen synthase (EC 2.4.1.21), GBE: Glycogen branching enzyme (EC 2.4.1.18), GP: Glycogen phosphorylase (EC 2.4.1.1), CphA: Cyanophycin synthetase (EC 6.-.-.-), CphB: Cyanophycinase (EC 3.4.15.6), PhaA: PHA-specific β-ketothiolase/Acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase (EC 2.3.1.9), PhaB: PHA-specific acetoacetyl-CoA reductase (EC 1.1.1.36), PhaC/E: Poly (3-hydroxyalkanoate) synthase (EC 2.3.1.-).
