Table 2 Classification of RGPs in the P. luminescens TT01, P. asymbiotica ATCC43949, X. nematophila ATCC19061 and X. bovienii SS-2004 genomes as a function of their genetic composition (the proportion of the modules belonging to a given class is indicated in parentheses)

X. bovienii SS-2004 7 (10%) 23 (32%) 21 (30%) 20 (28%)
  1. 1RGPs that are not prophages, GIs but encode potential DNA recombination enzymes (resolvase, invertase and excisionase)
  2. 2RGPs that are not prophages, GIs or RGP mob
