  • a ∼, highly divergent and absent locus/region; −, absent locus/region; +, conserved locus/region. Pseudogenes were compared to 64/72 pseudogenes of UCC118 that are represented on the microarray. HD, highly divergent; Abs, absent; CS, genes/loci associated with the chromosome of UCC118; MP, genes/loci associated with pMP118. All calculations excluded genes associated with pSF118-20 and pSF118-44.

  • b Conservation of intact prophage SalI (40,288 bp) and Sal2 (12,529 bp).

  • c Conservation of type 1 restriction modification system (LSL_0915-LSL_0920) encoded by UCC118.

  • d Bile salt hydrolase gene (bsh1; LSL_1801).

  • e Region associated with bacteriocin production (Abp 118, LSL_1909-LSL_1920).

  • f Two-component response regulatory systems encoded by UCC118 (encodes 9).

  • g Mucus-binding protein, lspA (LSL_0311).
