An improved and updated version of the fungal secretome and subcellular proteome, i. e. protein subcellular location, knowledgebase. The fungal protein sequence data were retrieved from UniProtKB, consisting of nearly 2 million entries with 167 species having a complete proteome. The assignments of protein subcellular locations were based on curated information and prediction using seven computational tools. The tools used for subcellular location prediction include SignalP, WoLF PSORT, Phobius, TargetP, TMHMM, FragAnchor, and PS-Scan. Secreted proteins, i.e. secretomes, along with 15 other subcellular proteomes were predicted. FunSecKB can be searched by users using several different types of identifiers, gene name or keyword(s). A subcellular proteome from a species can be searched or downloaded. BLAST searching whole fungal protein data or secretomes is available.
