  1. In brackets: predictions for HGT events based on sequence-signature, retrieved from two public data sources: right - [43]; left - [44].
  2. 1 other than S. pyogenes; 2other than Streptococcus; 3 other than Bacilli; 4other than Bacteria;
  3. † Since some proteins recognize homologues only in strains of S. pyogenes, the number of proteins in cluster might be higher than the sum of the four columns on the right.
