Proteome IDi <p>The proteome identifier (UPID) is the unique identifier assigned to the set of proteins that constitute the <a href="http://www.uniprot.org/manual/proteomes_manual">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>UP000001450

Plasmodium falciparum is the malarial parasite most dangerous to humans, accounting for over 90% of all malarial deaths. It is transmitted by the female Anopheles mosquito. It was the first species of the genus Plasmodium to be sequenced at The Sanger Center, as part of the ongoing malaria genome sequencing project. Its genome is notable for an exceptionally low GC content of under 20%. In other respects, the genome has a similar size (23.3 Mb) and gene count (about 5300) to other species of malarial parasites.
