From: Bioinformatic identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis proteins likely to target host cell mitochondria: virulence factors?

Figure 1

Distribution of predicted M. tuberculosis CDC1551 proteins according to their signal peptides. The 4, 246 predicted proteins of M. tuberculosis CDC1551 were analyzed for the presence of mitochondrial targeting sequences by the predictive algorithm MitoProt II, the 337 proteins that scored positive were analyzed by PSORT II, rendering 136 proteins likely to target mitochondria. Finally, these 136 proteins were analyzed for the presence of secretory signal peptides by the SignalP software.
