Comparative connectivities of core metabolites. For every degree (connectivity), the number of nodes (metabolites) in T. brucei (left) or P. falciparum (right) is plotted against the number of nodes in H. sapiens. The grey diagonal indicates metabolites of equal connectivity in host and parasite (AcCoA, acetyl-coenzyme A; DAG-AEP, diacylglyceryl-2-aminoethylphosphonate; GAP, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate; Pyr, pyruvate).
