Correcting Start Site Assignment. Y. pestis KIM putative membrane protein y2368. (A) 6 peptides map upstream of the currently predicted start site. Sequence upstream of the peptides includes elements of a classical signal peptide: early basic residues, hydrophobic patch, and the 3 residue motif immediately before cleavage (see ref 17) (B) Alignment of the upstream region showing sequence conservation, peptides bolded.
