Motif 5. A) The sequence represents the highly conserved site of ~40 bp (based on 85 hits at 0.7 prior probability). B) The positions in the E. coli genome of the 85 hits of motif 5. All hits are situated in intergenic regions. The gene names correspond to the genes downstream of these intergenic regions. The arrow directions indicate the strand of each hit (to the right: strand +1; to the left: strand -1).
