Predicted secretory (Sec-type) signal peptides of B. subtilisa

  • a Putative signal peptides were identified as described in the text under the heading Signal Peptide Predictions. Positively charged lysine (K) and arginine (R) residues in the N-domain are indicated in bold letters. The hydrophobic H-domain is indicated in gray shading. The residues at positions −3 to −1 relative to the predicted SPase I cleavage site are underlined, and the SPase cleavage site is indicated with a gap in the amino acid sequence. Proteins containing additional cell wall-binding repeats in the mature part of the protein are indicated with a superscript W.
