  1. Strains LMG 18811T, KG16-1, C120c, C122c, KSL4-2, PB1a, PB1e, PL111 and LMG 22919 belong to L. gelidum subsp. gasicomitatum; LMG 18297 T and JB7 – to L. gelidum subsp. gelidum. Strains with complete genomes are LMG 18811T, KG16-1 and JB7; others have draft genomes. Gene names and locus_tags (either from KG16-1 or LMG 18811 T): lacticin biosynthesis genes lctA (LEKG_0458) and lctMT (LEKG_0461-0462); polyketide biosynthesis cluster (LEGAS_1827-1830); pyruvate oxidase poxB (LEGAS_1053); biofilm formation genes icaB and icaA (LEGAS_1065, LEGAS_1067); collagen-binding protein cna (LEGAS_1063); xylose-proton symporter xylT (LEGAS_1062); mucus-binding protein (LEGAS_0414); accessory Sec system genes secY2, asp1, asp2, asp3, secA2, nss, gtfA, gtfB, asp4 (LEKG_0540-0548); fused glutamate racemase/NTP pyrophosphatase (LEKG_0672)
