Table S1. Phenotypes encoded on the LPP-1 genomes of Group I-III Pantoea spp. Table showing the phenotypes, as well as the genetic loci for these phenotypes, encoded on the LPP-1 genomes of Group I, II and III Pantoea strains. The presence/absence of a particularly genetic locus and phenotype in each Group is indicated by a + or -, respectively, and the strain number designations follow those indicated in Table 1. The phenotypes are further subdivided into groups according to their function, including those factors which are conserved (core) among all twenty Pantoea spp., and those potentially involved in transport and catabolism of metabolic substrates, inorganic ion assimilation, resistance to antimicrobials and heavy metal, host colonization and persistence and putative pathogenesis and antibiosis factors.
