Supplement A. Presence and absence of Salmonella enterica ORFs in 79 S. enterica subspecies I isolates, S. enterica ssp IIIb, and S. bongori. Status predictions are as follows: 0, absent; 1, uncertain; 2, present; ?, low signal. Predictions were established as described in Materials and Methods. ORFs include genes encoded on the S. enterica sv Typhimurium LT2 (STM) genome, coding sequences present on the STM virulence plasmid pSLT, genes located on pKM101, a derivative of plasmid R46 present in the Typhimurium Ames strains, and Typhi-specific ORFs encoded on the Typhi CT18 (STY) genome.
Supplement B. Numerical relationship matrix of Salmonella isolates. The number of chromosomal Typhimurium LT2 and Typhi CT18 regions (at least two contiguous genes) exhibiting converse status prediction is shown for all investigated strains against each other. Phage regions were excluded from the calculation.
