Data contents of PathLocdb and the classification of multiple localizing superpathways. (a, b) Distribution of 337 Swiss-Prot superpathways and 215 KEGG superpathways in their top ten organelles. For each bar, superpathways unique to the subcellular locations on Y axis are represented in black; the pathways with two or more than three locations including that on the Y axis are shown in red and blue respectively, (c) Distribution of 337 Swiss-Prot superpathways with different numbers of localizations. For each bar, superpathways specific to single organism are represented in black; the pathways with two, three or more than four organisms including that on the Y axis are shown in red, blue and navy respectively, (d) Venn diagram for the multiple locations of 235 Swiss-Prot superpathways. The ORG_MSL represents the superpathways with multiple locations from different organisms; The STEP_MSL represents pathways carried out through a series of steps spanning several subcellular locations; the PAR_MSL shows pathways occurring parallel in several subcellular locations ; and the PR_MSL represents the count of pathways with multiple localizing enzymes.
