TTINSGG·Q·VSSGGSAT·Consensus
  • a The consensus sequence shown on the bottom line represents the amino acids most frequently encountered (at least 7 out of 12 times) at the corresponding location within the 19-amino-acid repetitive sequence. The amino acid residue numbering is based on the first codon of the tibA ORF representing residue 1.
