Alignment of the sucrose and sorbitol operons from E. amylovora , E. pyrifoliae and E. tasmaniensis with Mauve v.2.3.0. The similarity profile of the alignment in the progressive mode is shown in red . The height of the bars corresponds to the average level of conservation in the sequence. White boxes indicate genes. The alignment of the sucrose operons (A-D) comprise nucleotide sequences of E. amylovora strain CFBP 1430 (A; Acc. No. AJ250722, positions 230 6950), E. pyrifoliae strain Ep1/96 (B; Acc. No. FP236842, positions 2206738- 2213359) and E. tasmaniensis strain Et1/99 (C; Acc. No. CU468135, positions 2119695- 2126241). The genes scrA and scrB are duplicated in the genome of E. tasmaniensis Et1/99 (D; positions 1064052- 1070604). There is a continuous homology in the sucrose operons shown in the similarity profiles. Alignment of the sorbitol operons (E-G) comprises nucleotide sequences of E. amylovora strain Ea7/74 (E; Acc. No. Y14603, positions 276- 4479), E. pyrifoliae strain Ep1/96 (F; Acc. No. FP236842, positions 668798- 672810) and E. billingiae strain Eb661 (G; Acc. No. FP236843, positions 2907872- 2911878).
