Genome unique regions. (A) Base deviation index (BDI) analysis of the B. longum DJO10A and NCC2705 genomes. Unique regions of each genome as defined in the text are numbered. The locations of oriC and terC are indicated by green arrows. Letters refer to predicted gene phenotypes from regions with definitive BDI peaks that are present in both genomes, a, GTPase, b, cation transport ATPase, c, DNA partitioning protein, d, choloylglycine hydrolase, e, glutamine synthase beta chain, f, alanyl-tRNA synthetase, g, pyruvate kinase, h, cation transport ATPase, I, fibronectin type III, j, aminopeptidase C, k, subtilisin-like serine protease, l, sortase, m, fatty acid synthase. (B) Organization of the unique region 1 showing the location of a 361 bp DNA remnant, indicated by the green bar, from the ushA gene remaining at the predicted deletion location in NCC2705. Sky blue colored ORFs indicate common genes between both genomes. a, mobile integrase cassette.
