Analysis of the extracellular proteins of two different C. pseudotuberculosis strains allowed for identification of the core and variant exoproteomes. TPP-extracted extracellular proteins of the strains 1002 and C231 of C. pseudotuberculosis were submitted to LC-MSE analysis. The Venn-diagram shows the numbers of commonly identified and variant exoproteins between the strains. The number of replicates in which a given protein was observed, the average peptides identified per protein, and the average sequence coverage of the proteins in each exoproteome studied, are shown as frequency distributions for comparison purposes.
