Comparison of the hdr cluster between A. ferrooxidans ATCC 23270 and other sulfur oxidizers. Heterodisulfide reductase complex (HdrC1B1AOrf2HdrC2B2), accessory proteins (Rhd, TusA, DsrE) and ATP sulfurylase (Sat) in AF: A. ferrooxidans ATCC 23270 (NC_011206), AA: Aquifex aeolicus (NC_000918) and known acidophilic sulfur oxidizing microorganisms HB: Hydrogenobaculum sp. Y04AAS1 (NC_011126), HV: Hydrogenivirga sp. 128-5-R1-1 (NZ_ABHJ00000000), MS: Metallosphaera sedula (NC_009440), SA: Sulfolobus acidocaldarius (NC_007181), ST: S. tokodaii (NC_003106) and SS: S. solfataricus (NC_002754). Percentage of amino-acid similarity is indicated. Blue triangles represent inversion in the gene order.
