  • a Number refers to nomenclature used in Table 1.

  • b Number in parentheses are numbers of genes in the operons.

  • c Gene identified (+) or not identified (−) an DNA fragments isolated in SPDB assay.

  • d Identical within the threefold threshold (see the text).

  • e ND, not determined; due to the insertion in the ciaR gene, the negative value obtained in R6-R1 is not meaningful.

  • f See table 3.
