Promoter predictions for rpoE2 -dependent genes and intergenic regions (IGRs). (a) Protein-coding genes whose transcripts showed increased abundance when rpoE2 was overexpressed, and for which an mTSS and σE2 promoter motif was assigned. Genes in bold were predicted to possess σ70 or σH promoters, in addition to the σE2 promoter. (b) Upstream regions of SMc02894 and SMb20522 showing transcription start sites (indicated by blue triangles) and putative promoters. The height of each TSS symbol corresponds to the log10 coverage for mapped reads (y-axis). (c) IGRs whose transcripts showed increased abundance when rpoE2 was overexpressed.
