  • a ORFs in parentheses were located outside of the type V SCCmec. Incomplete ORFs that are potentially defective genes or pseudogenes containing frameshift mutations are designated with asterisks.

  • b CDS, coding sequence. The nucleotide positions are given from the nucleotide sequence deposited in the DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank databases under accession no. AB121219, and the sizes were measured from the 5′ (starting nucleotide) to the 3′ (ending nucleotide) direction.

  • c Identity of the amino acid sequence to each ORF.
