Genomic locations of PTS transporters in the genomes of the “Firm-5” strains. Genome sequences, similarity and phylogeny are as for Figure 5. PTS transporters are shown as red and yellow bars along the genomes, where red bars represent the Man family PTS transporters and yellow bars represent all other PTS transporters. Additionally, the Man PTS transporters have been numbered according to the order of their occurrence in the genomes. The green boxes show the position of the variable region analyzed in Figure 9.
