  4. d O. kitaharae DSM17330 genome sequence [27] was analyzed for the presence of genes putatively associated with the metabolism of a selection of carbohydrate in O. oeni. The expression distinct cluster is mentioned if O. kitaharae DSM17330 corresponding gene cluster does not display exactly the same gene content (gene identity or synteny) and/or if they are located at distinct insertion sites on the chromosome according to surrounding region
