Top diagram is a schematic of the BCAA biosynthetic pathway in S. aureus. Bottom diagram depicts the genomic context of the BCAA biosynthetic genes in the USA300 FPR3757 genome. Regulatory features and their coordinates relative to the transcription start site are depicted, including the canonical CodY binding motifs [57,97] and the ribosome binding site (RBS).
