Figure S7. DNA sequence alignment and structure prediction of the 5′ UTR of ftsA . The DNA sequences of ftsA 5′ UTR in six streptococci were extracted from NCBI sequence database. The 5′ UTR sequence was predicted by checking for the presence of a potential − 10 box 7–9 nt upstream of the first nucleotide. Alignment and folding prediction were performed by using LocARNA ( http://rna.informatik.uni-freiburg.de/LocARNA ). Compatible base pairs are colored, where the hue shows the number of different types C-G, G-C, A-U, U-A, G-U or U-G of compatible base pairs in the corresponding columns. The saturation decreases with the number of incompatible base pairs.
