CpcS-I subfamily CwatDRAFT_6342 ZP_00514111.1 197 09-26-2011

CpeT family CwatDRAFT_0664 ZP_00518424.1 Several possible starts. This second (complete) cpeT copy is only distantly related to the other (partial) cpeT copy. 215 09-25-2012
CpeS-I subfamily CwatDRAFT_5719 ZP_00514726.1 179 09-26-2011
CpeY family CwatDRAFT_0665 ZP_00518425.1 There is another partial CpeY sequence in this genome almost 100% identical to this one (possibly an assembly error). 419 08-27-2012
CpeZ family CwatDRAFT_5981 ZP_00514214.1 204 09-26-2011

RpcG family CwatDRAFT_0661 ZP_00518422.1 Although this genome also contains rpcE/F genes, WH8501 has been shown that alpha-PC attaches a PUB (Swanson et al. 1991). So the role of rpcE/F genes is unclear. 473 08-30-2012

CotB family CwatDRAFT_1185 ZP_00517831.1 218 09-26-2011
CpcE-I subfamily CwatDRAFT_3431 ZP_00516610.1 Not clustered with cpcF-I. This strain also possesses an RpcG-like sequence which should act on the same alpha-PC binding site as CpcE/F. 284 10-30-2012
CpcF-I subfamily CwatDRAFT_6054 ZP_00513615.1 Not clustered with cpcE-I. This strain also possesses an RpcG-like sequence which should act on the same alpha-PC binding site as CpcE/F. 194 10-30-2012
CpeY family CwatDRAFT_5980 ZP_00514215.1 Sequence incomplete. N-term extended (35 aa added) but still incomplete. 282 08-27-2012
NblB family CwatDRAFT_3505 ZP_00516591.1 Blastp 219 09-26-2011

CpeZ family CwatDRAFT_0406 ZP_00518848.1 Low score, similar to Tery_0980 (IMS101) 219 12-02-2011
CpeT family CwatDRAFT_5720 ZP_00514725.1 Similar to CpeT, but with a 51 aa deletion in the middle. N- and C-term closely related to WH0003 cpeT sequence. 149 09-26-2012
L8106_16949 homologs family CwatDRAFT_4661 ZP_00515205.1 377 12-05-2011
L8106_22089 homologs family CwatDRAFT_0171 ZP_00519405.1 split between 3 different contigs: ZP_00517336.1 (CwatDRAFT_2581), ZP_00513741.1 (CwatDRAFT_6637) and ZP_00519405.1 (CwatDRAFT_0171) 107 08-29-2012
