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>UP000000603

All members of the genus Propionibacterium produce propionic acid as a major metabolic end-product; however they are divided into 2 groups, a cutaneous group (which can cause acne) and a dairy group used in cheese production.

Propionibacterium acnes is a Gram-positive bacterium that inhabits the adult human skin. It resides within sebaceous follicles, usually as a harmless commensal even though it is involved in acne formation. It is also associated with other diseases like endocarditis, corneal ulcers, among others.
