Distribution of the Moco biosynthetic pathway and molybdoenzyme families in bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes. The phylogenetic tree is simplified to only show major taxa and branches of bacteria (light purple background), archaea (light yellow background) and eukaryotes (light green background). The seven tracks (circles) around the tree (from inside to outside) represent the distribution patterns of Moco (Moco biosynthetic pathway), SO (sulfite oxidase), XO (xanthine oxidase), DMOSR (dimethylsulfoxide reductase), AOR (aldehyde:ferredoxin oxidoreductase), MOSC-containing protein and nitrogenase families, respectively. The length of the colored section of each column represents the percentage of organisms that possess either Moco biosynthetic pathway or the corresponding molybdoenzyme families among all sequenced organisms in this branch
