Table 1 The putative promoter elements recognized by phage-encoded σ factor in the 7 - 11 genome; The sequences are flanked by the number of the downstream gene (left) and the starting genomic coordinate - 5' end of the "TG" segment for long motifs and of the core "TGATGT"' segment for short motifs (right); The third to eight position in the motifs correspond to the consensus core motif 'TGATGT", while the upstream and the downstream flanking sequences correspond, respectively, to the "TG" segment and the "TATA" element.
