Abstract

Twenty-four Lactobacillus plantarum supermotifs (LPSMs) with a length from approximately 800-1000 nt were identified in the L. plantarum genome. LPSMs were conserved in other L. plantarum strains but not in other species. Secondary structure analysis predicted that LPSMs may fold into cruciform-like structures. Preliminary experiments indicate that the LPSMs are transcribed
