SEARCH BY CITATION

Fig. S1. Presence of homologues of proteins involved in the regulation of competence in Bacillus and closely related species. Results of BLAST queries were visualized with Genesis 1.6 software: white is absent (with e-value of E-0), dark blue is present (e-value < E-20). BLAST analysis was performed with B. subtilis protein sequences against the translated protein database of a given genome. Question marks denote small ORFs where identification is uncertain using the available bioinformatic tools that can miss homologues. Where the search yielded no hit (or with an e-value below E-05) an additional TBLASTN was performed. Protein names are indicated on the right. Bsu, B. subtilis; Bam, B. amyloliquefaciens; Bli, B. licheniformis; Bpu, B. pumilus; Ban, B. anthracis; Bce, B. cereus; Bth, B. thuringiensis; Bwe, B. weihenstephanensis; Oih, O. iheyensis; Gka, G. kaustophilus; Gth, G. thermodenitrificans; Bcl, B. clausii; Bha, B. halodurans).

Fig. S2. Multiple alignments of ComGA-G homologues. Black background represents conserved amino acids and grey background represents similar amino acids. Alignment was performed using Clustal W (Thompson et al., 1994), and presented using the Boxshade 3.21 program. For abbreviations of species names see Fig. S1. Conserved domains of B. subtilis ComG proteins are indicated with arrows above the alignment. AAA+, ATPase domain (Smart accession number: SM00382); GSPII-F, general secretion pathway domain (PFAM accession number: PF00482); TMS, transmembrane segment; N-met, N-methyl domain often found at N-terminus of pilins and proteins involved in secretion (PFAM accession number: PF07963); SSeq, signal peptide sequence.
