  1. The chorismate mutase domain (AroQp or AroQt) has also been designated CM-P or CM-T, respectively, in the older literature ([45] and see [22]). The rationale for terminology to facilitate genomic comparisons, including the convention of using a bullet to separate the domains of fusion proteins, was presented in Gu et al. [46].
