Organization of genes in the Esp1396I RM system. (a) The C-protein binding sites are coloured orange. The C-protein gene (C) is coloured green, the endonuclease gene (R) is coloured red and the methyltransferase gene (M) is coloured blue (adapted from Bogdanova et al., 2009BB6). (b) The OL+R C-protein binding sites. The conserved GAC binding sites are underlined and the central TATA sequences are shown in bold. The TATA of the OR binding site forms part of the `-35 box' for the C/R genes  [article HTML]
