Triplicated genes for biogenesis of pili and flagella in G. bemidjiensis. The pilus assembly protein tip-associated adhesin genes (pilY1) and associated genes (orf1, orf2, orf3, orf4) have single orthologs in G. sulfurreducens (green arrows); those of G. metallireducens are of different origin. The flagellin genes (fliC) and pilus biogenesis ATPase genes (pulE) have single orthologs in both G. sulfurreducens and G. metallireducens (purple arrows), while genes predicted to be in the same operons are often unique to G. bemidjiensis (pink arrows). GEMM riboswitches (purple rectangles) are found near the recently triplicated fibronectin type III domain protein genes.
