Table 2 Percentage of Sakai genes that are present, divergent/absent or variably absent or present (VAP) in all 24 EHEC 2 strains.

From: Genomic diversity of pathogenic Escherichia coli of the EHEC 2 clonal complex

  Backbone (shared with K-12) n = 3696 Sakai-specific
   phage-related n = 814 Bacterial n = 434
Present 80.9% 5.8% 6.5%
Divergent/absent 1.1% 9.5% 53.0%
VAPa 18.0% 84.7% 40.5%
  1. a – genes that were detected in at least one of the 24 EHEC 2 strains, but not in all EHEC 2 strains.
