  • a Genome sequence were obtained from The Institute for Genomic Research, The Sanger Institute, and the Department of Energy—Joint Genome Institute public data banks. The Tcp protein lengths in R. eutropha JMP134(pJP4) are as follows: TcpA, 517 amino acids TcpB, 197 amino acids, TcpC, 276 amino acids; TcpD, 355 amino acids.

  • b The number of amino acids used in the comparison and the total number of amino acids in each protein sequence are shown in parentheses. No percent similarity for MAR sequences is indicated in cases when only part of the protein exhibits homology.
