  • a ORFs shown in parentheses were located outside of SCCmec. Asterisks signify incomplete ORFs that are potentially defective genes or peseudogenes containing either a deletion, nonsense mutation, or frameshift mutation.

  • b Nucleotide position in the nucleotide sequence deposited under DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank accession no AB033763 (type I) and AB0376701 (type III).

  • c Identity to the amino acid sequence of the best match revealed in the homology search of the GenBank and EMBL databases with TFastA.

  • d Genes shown in parentheses had a deduced ORF with less than 70% amino acid identity to the ORF indicated.
