  1. aEvidence codes - IDA: Inferred from Direct Assay; TAS: Traceable Author Statement (i.e., a direct report exists in the literature); NAS: Non-traceable Author Statement (i.e., not directly observed for the living, isolated sample, but based on a generally accepted property for the species, or anecdotal evidence). Evidence codes are from the Gene Ontology project [53].
  2. bThe only carbon source that was positive for this strain, out of all carbon sources that were tested (strain MM2LBT does not use carbohydrates, not even glucose) [1].
