Figure 3.

Ribbon diagrams showing predicted secondary structures of ribosomal L22 proteins. The divergent, putative aa sequences from the reference Brucella strains and three marine isolates are found in Fig. 2. The ribbon structures for each group is as follows: (A) B. abortus and B. melitensis; (B) B. canis, B. suis biovars 1, 4, and 5, and the marine isolates, (C) B. ovis; (D) B. suis biovars 2 and 3; and (E) B. neotomae. Structures were predicted based on coordinates of L22 from Thermus thermophilus [52] and prepared using Swiss-Pdb viewer [50, 51]. Region containing β-hairpin loops (→).
