The draft genome of Kipferlia bialata reveals reductive genome evolution in fornicate parasites

PLoS One
PMCID: 5874029
PMID: 29590215
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0194487

[…] e and the similarity to known proteins (e.g., homologs of bacteria).The presence of mitochondria-targeting signals in the proteins in question were evaluated using three different programs—MitoFates, TPpred2 and TargetP and IPSORT [–]. The N-termini of the predicted proteins were manually curated using the genome and transcriptome data. If N-termini of the proteins predicted from genome data were […]


TgPRELID, a Mitochondrial Protein Linked to Multidrug Resistance in the Parasite Toxoplasma gondii

PMCID: 5288566
PMID: 28168222
DOI: 10.1128/mSphere.00229-16

[…] etected a single band at the predicted size of ~54 kDa, and an IFA revealed localization to the parasite’s mitochondrion (). Although there was no mitochondrial targeting sequence predicted by either TPpred2 () or TargetP 1.1 (), the mitochondrial localization of TgPRELID is consistent with the localization of homologous human and yeast PRELI domain-containing proteins in the intermembrane mitocho […]


Biotin Auxotrophy and Biotin Enhanced Germ Tube Formation in Candida albicans

PMCID: 5039597
PMID: 27681931
DOI: 10.3390/microorganisms4030037
call_split See protocol

[…] mTPs predictions on BPL1, BIO2, BIO3, BIO4, and BIO32 were performed by using PSORT II [] server, MitoFates [] server, TPpred 2.0 [] server and TargetP [] server. Standard settings were used for all four predictors. […]


Non excitable fluorescent protein orthologs found in ctenophores

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 4997694
PMID: 27557948
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-016-0738-5

[…] itochondria [], we examined this FPL for targeting peptides. Although the ctenophore FPLs have a conserved N-terminal motif that alternates between charged and non-polar residues, neither SignalP nor TPpred2 predicted secretory or mitochondrial targeting based on this motif [, ]. Fig. 1Fig. 2 […]


Interactive Effect of Herbivory and Competition on the Invasive Plant Mikania micrantha

PLoS One
PMCID: 3667845
PMID: 23737942
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0062608

[…] nd defoliation significantly reduced the growth of Mikania compared to the plants of the species grown without competition and defoliation (). The TPtrue values were all significantly higher than the TPpred values, regardless of the intensity with which Mikania was defoliated, indicating an antagonistic interactive effect between competition and defoliation on the growth of Mikania (). The two-way […]
