  1. §Operon predictions in G. sulfurreducens are described in [18].
  2. Genes were discussed in the text and/or RpoN regulatory elements have been confirmed in their promoter regions by primer extension analyses
  3. *Not all genes listed in the table matched the criteria for ≥ 1.25 fold-change cutoffs by the gene expression microarray analysis as described in Methods, but these genes are listed because one or more genes from the same operon matched the cutoff criteria.
  4. N.D.: Not detected.
