  • See also Figure 2.

  • a Organism showing the best match to the R. sphaeroides sequence.

  • b The size of the matching polypeptide (amino acid residues) encoded by the gene from the organism showing the best match.

  • c The level of amino acid identity between the R. sphaeroides sequence and the best match in the database; i.e., for argD, the R. sphaeroides sequence aligned with 377 amino acid residues of the best match. Of these residues, 172 were identical. This gives an identity of 45%.

  • d Same as for the previous footnote, but including identical plus similar residues.

  • e The probability of getting a match with a similar score by chance.
