The prDNA-G unit does not present a complete pac-2 cleavage/packaging signal. Alignment of the prDNA units from V.test strain (prDNA-inner above and prDNA-G below). The differences observed in the alignment are highlighted in grey. The cleavage/packaging signals pac-1 and pac-2 are represented in boxes, and their composing C-rich, G-rich, GC-rich and T-rich units are indicated. PstI, EcoRI, SstII, BamHI restriction sites (here PstI) are represented in coloured font. One modified PstI restriction site in the prDNA-inner is also highlighted to indicate the divergence between the fragments composing both units.
