  • a The location of the coding regions with respect to the reported pha sequences is indicated.

  • b The percent overlap indicates the length of the phaC gene that has phaQ sequence on the complementary strand as part of the length of phaC. It is unknown whether phaQ represents coding information for an actual protein or RNA molecule.
