Additional file 3: of Phages infecting Faecalibacterium prausnitzii belong to novel viral genera that help to decipher intestinal viromes

Alignment of Mushu and Lagaffe with close relatives. A) Lagaffe prophages. Remarkably, Lagaffe prophage is present in the genome of B. hansenii DSM20583, only distantly related to F. prausnitzii. Alignment with a viral contig obtained from metagenomic reads suggests that the packaging site is just before the terminase gene. B) Mushu prophage is present in three F. prausnitzii isolates. Its synteny is perfectly conserved with a distantly related prophage in the genome of the Ruminococcaceae bacterium D16 (RBD16). (PPTX 466 kb)
