Organization of fox genes clusters in Sulfolobales. Sulfolobus metallicus genes were used as reference because it is the model organism where this complex was first described (*). Similarity of the amino acid sequences of all Sulfolobales with fox genes to the S.metallicus references was estimated using a BLASTP analysis. The homologous genes from different species are represented using the same color, arrow orientation indicates the orientation of the ORF in the genome and lengths are proportional to the real length of the proteins. Homologous genes are linked by lines to track changes in genome organization among species. Double bar indicates that the gene is located in a different genomic region
