Conservation of promoter sequences between S. pyogenes and S. agalactiae. a. Schematic representation of the analysis and number of primary promoters in each category according to the figure keys in S. pyogenes (GAS) and S. agalactiae (GBS) genomes. The 50 nt upstream of each TSS were aligned against the 5′ UTR of the orthologous gene of the other species as described in Materials and methods. Sequences that showed an alignment were classified either as conserved promoter with experimental TSS or conserved promoter with no experimental TSS whether or not, respectively, their 3′ end corresponded to a TSS determined experimentally in the orthologous sequence. When sequence alignment was not significant, promoters were considered as not conserved. The number of promoters of species-specific genes is also indicated; b Number of promoters in each class depending on the conservation of synteny with the upstream gene
