a Localization data are from LocateP (Zhou et al., 2008), with the seven corrections described in the text. According to Locate P, the numbers of identified cytoplasmic, lipid anchor, N-terminal anchor, cell wall associated and secreted proteins.

b Data from the LocateP database.

c Containing multiple transmembrane helices.

d Not detected (ND), LocateP only predicts cell wall proteins with LPxTG motifs.
