Comparative map of type I fimbriae in the NCCP15736 genome and other closely related species. Nine genes were highly conserved in the eleven strains, and only fimD (4) was truncated in NCCP15736. Numbers indicate genes encoding the following proteins: chaperone FimC (1); type I fimbriae regulatory proteins FimB and FimE, from left to right (2); type I fimbriae major subunit FimA (3); type I fimbriae anchoring protein FimD (4); type I fimbriae adaptor subunit FimF (5); type I fimbriae adaptor subunit FimG (6); mannose-specific adhesion FimH (7); N-acetylneuraminic acid outer membrane channel protein NanC (8); fructuronate transporter GntP (9). Gray background boxes indicate that the genes in the relative positions are conserved in at least four species. The comparative map was created with the genome browser of the SEED viewer (version 2.0)
