Fucose utilisation loci in infant-derived bifidobacterial strains. Comparison of the fucose/fucosyllactose metabolism genes of B. kashiwanohense APCKJ1 with corresponding homologous loci of B. longum subsp. infantis ATCC 15697, B. pseudocatenulatum DSM 20438 and B. breve UCC2003, as identified using the heatmap in Fig. 7. Each solid arrow represents an open reading frame. The length of each arrow is proportional to the size of the open reading frame, and the color code is indicative of the predicted gene function. The amino acid sequence identity of each predicted protein expressed as a percentage is also shown.
