  1. a Protein definitions are derived from Korch et al., (1985) [80] or the NCBI conserved domain database [33].
  2. b The fold change for each replicate was calculated by comparing total number of reads for each gene in anaerobically grown gonococci to number of reads for each gene in aerobically grown gonococci. Values were normalized to total number of chromosomal reads. A positive value represents an induction of gene expression anaerobically, and a negative value represents a repression of gene expression anaerobically.
