  • a >, forward strand; <, reverse strand.

  • b Characteristics of the chromosomal location of the tsr gene. IG, located in the intergenic region; −, absent, deleted, or no homologue; AS, antisense to the annotated gene; CDS, located within an existing annotated CDS; OL, partially overlaps CDS gene; CDS3, the corresponding locus contains three annotated CDSs.
