Secretomes of T. brucei gambiense and L. donovanii share functional homology. Functional categories from T. brucei gambiense and L. donovanii secretomes were compared (A). Proteins from T. brucei total proteome and glycosome were also classified into functional categories (B). On the x-axis, the categories are the following: 1. unassigned function, 2. folding and degradation, 3. nucleotide metabolism, 4. carbohydrate metabolism, 5. amino acid metabolism, 6. protein synthesis, 7. signaling, 8. cell cycle and organization, 9. lipid and cofactor, 10. transport, 11. redox, and 12. RNA/DNA metabolism. The y-axis shows the percentage of each category for each proteome/secretome.
