  • a The data are percent sequence identities. The data in the upper right triangle represent the deduced amino acid sequence identities of EF-Tu of gram-positive bacteria, while the data in the lower left triangle represent the DNA sequence identities of the corresponding tuf genes. The sequence identities between different enterococcal tufA genes are boxed, while those between enterococcal tufB genes are shaded.
