  • a Type IV secretion system coupling protein.

  • b T4SS, type IV secretion system; MPF, mating pair formation.

  • c Sequence similarity was determined using mapping analysis, and whole-sequence similarity (WSS) of circularized plasmids was calculated using ClustalW.

  • d Presence (+) or absence (−) of the plasmid/contig is indicated.

  • e Sequence similarity between A. xylosoxidans KUN4507 and K. pneumoniaeKUN5033.

  • f Sequence similarity between K. pneumoniae KUN4843 and K. pneumoniae KUN5033.

  • g Excluding the regions where depth of coverage is <10%.

  • h The Illumina reads of K. pneumoniae KUN5053 could be mapped to this contig of KUN4843.
