  • a Based on the B. longum subsp. longum DJO10A annotation.

  • b Genes on the same line are analogs.

  • c Species-specific predicted LPXTG-containing cell surface protein.

  • d LPXTG motif missing because of a predicted ISL3 deletion event.

  • e LPXTG motif is missing.

  • f No predicted secretion ability.
