Overlap between Trypanosoma total proteome and the T. brucei gambiense and L. donovanii secretome. Proteins identified in 3 different compartments (T. brucei total proteome, T. brucei gambiense secretome, and L. donovanii secretome) were compared as to determine part of the proteins that were either specific to each compartment or common to different compartments. So, the black circle in the middle shows that 84 proteins are common to T. brucei total proteome, T. brucei gambiense secretome, and L. donovanii secretome. Among the other proteins of the T. brucei gambiense secretome, for example, 182 (41%) were specific to this compartment, whereas 52 were common with L. donovanii secretome, and 126 with the total proteome; out of the proteins identified in the total T. brucei proteome, 824 were specific to this compartment.
