Gene counti <p>This is the total number of unique genes found in the proteome set, algorithmically computed. For each gene, a single representative protein sequence is chosen from the proteome. Where possible, reviewed (Swiss-Prot) protein sequences are chosen as the representatives.</p> - Download one protein sequence per gene (FASTA)
Proteome IDi <p>The proteome identifier (UPID) is the unique identifier assigned to the set of proteins that constitute the <a href="">proteome</a>. It consists of the characters ‘UP’ followed by 9 digits, is stable across releases and can therefore be used to cite a UniProt proteome.<p><a href='/help/proteome_id' target='_top'>More...</a></p>UP000000593

This organism is a piezophile, that is it lives under high pressure, having been isolated at a depth of 2500 m. It grows over a broad (90 MPa) pressure range and is amenable to genetic manipulation. Like other Vibrionaceae it has 2 circular chromosomes and a 80 kb plasmid. It encodes two complete operons for F1F0 ATP synthase, one on each chromosome as well as three complete sets of cbb3 cytochrome oxidase genes; the one on chr. 2 was possibly acquired from an aproteobacterium, along with an unusual diheme cytochrome c gene. These findings support the idea that modified electron and proton transport are necessary for metabolic activity at high pressure. Confirmation that SS9 is a true piezophile comes from the observation that several stress-response genes are activated at atmospheric pressure (adapted from PubMed 15746425).
