  1. #The entire nucleotide sequences (IEP-encoding ORF included) of B.c.I4a, b, c, and d are identical and inserted in the corresponding host gene. B.th.I5a and b differ at three nucleotide positions only. B.th.I6b, c, and d are identical to each other, while B.th.I6a and e are 98.4% and 99% identical to the former introns, respectively, and B.th.I6f differs from B.th.I6b, c, and d at a single nucleotide position. B.c.I16a and b/c are ~90% identical to the various B.th.I6 copies. All B.th.I6 and B.c.I16 copies are located in the same host gene. Due to missing sequence data, it could not be confirmed whether the B.c.I16 intron is present in one or two copies in the B. cereus F65185 strain. The entire nucleotide sequences of B.th.I7a and c are identical. Part of the IEP-encoding ORF sequence of B.th.I7b is missing from the genomic data, whereas the ribozyme sequence is complete and identical to that of B.th.I7a and c. The entire nucleotide sequences of B.my.I1 and B.ps.I1 are 96.5% identical
  2. &B.th.I6-like intron fragments were recently identified in two B. thuringiensis isolates from Mexico (Genbank accession numbers JF800177 and JF800178)
