The L. plantarum operons predicted to be controlled by (a) 'CcpA-like' LacI-family TFs and (b) 'EbgR-like' LacI-family TFs. The set of operons is restricted to those having a very high probability of being correctly predicted. The positions of putative operators are marked by triangles and the direction in which transcription is presumably regulated is indicated (< and >). The functional categories of the proteins encoded by the genes that are under the control of LacI-family TFs are color-coded as depicted in the inset. The functional annotations were taken from the in-house annotation database of L. plantarum WCFS1 ( and C. Francke unpublished results). See [Additional file 9] for a detailed description of the functional annotation.
