Disorder frequencies in chloroplast and nuclear proteomes. A) Heatmap of 226 proteins transferred from plastid to nucleus (X- axis) in 12 analysed plant genomes (Y-axis). Colour scale goes from blue (order) to red (disorder); magenta is shown in cases were not all members within a group of paralogous genes encode disordered proteins. Absent orthologues are painted in grey. RUBISCO small subunit is marked with an asterisk. B) Scatter plot of disorder frequencies in complete plant nuclear proteomes (X-axis) versus disorder frequencies in the nuclear proteome fraction with chloroplast origin (Y-axis). C) Linear plot of disorder frequencies in complete plant chloroplast proteomes (X-axis) versus disorder frequencies in the nuclear proteome fraction with chloroplast origin (Y-axis). A protein is considered disordered if it contains a contiguous stretch of predicted disordered residues of Lā€‰ā‰„ā€‰30 amino acids.
