  • a Codon numbers are based on Bs1 ORF1 in Z. mays subsp. mays.

  • b Bs1 copies were cloned from Z. luxurians (L), Z. diploperennis (D), Z. mays subsp. mexicana (Mx), Z. mays subsp. huehuetenangensis (H), Z. mays subsp. parviglumis (P), and Z. mays subsp. mays (My). A 696-bp deletion found in H25 is not represented here.
