Figure 1. Circular map of plasmid pCT. Open reading frames are color coded as follows: brown, pseudogenes; orange, hypothetic proteins; light pink, insertion sequences; light blue, tra locus; green, pil locus; dark pink, antimicrobial drug resistance gene; yellow, putative sigma factor; red, replication-associated genes. Arrows show the direction of transcription. pCT, IncK plasmid.
