  1. This table indicates the total number of proteins with a score of 0 to 6 based on their presence in the six bacteria when using P. acanthamoebae or L. drancourtii orthologous proteins as queries for the BLASTP searches. The number of corresponding genes present in each bacterium is detailed in the following columns. The bacteria in the first three columns are decreasingly related to L. drancourtii, andthose indicated in the last three columns exhibit diminishing relatedness to P. acanthamoebae.
