Fig. 11

Donor of ascidian cellulose synthase Streptomyces sp. contains bacteriophage recombination site adjacent to cellulose synthase gene. a Streptomyces sp. cellulose synthase catalytic subunit gene (bcsA) is adjacent to tRNA-lys gene. b Alignment of bacteriophage A500 recombination site (AttP) with the tRNA-Lys gene (APS67_000733). The sequence identity and score are, respectively, 91.2% and 143 (calculated by EMBOSS Matcher)
