  • a Locations of oriC clusters in oriC-associated conserved regions are as follows: parB-parA-(oriC cluster 3)-gidB-ssb-oxaA-rnpA-rpmH-(oriC cluster 2)-dnaA-(oriC cluster 1)-dnaN-recF-hyp-gyrB-gyrA.

  • b The DnaA boxes consist of seven types, designated A to G, as follows: A, TTATCCACA; B, TTGTCCACA; C, TTTTCCACA; D, TTACCCACA; E, TTATCCACC; F, TTATTCACA; and G, TTATGCACA.
