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="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>UP000001542

This protozoan parasite is the causal agent of human trichomoniasis, a sexually transmitted infection. Trichomonas vaginalis is a flagellated protozoan parasite that is the causal agent of human trichomoniasis. It is typically transmitted by sexual intercourse and accounts for approximately 170 million cases per year worldwide. It is an extracellular parasite that adheres to the epithelium of the urogenital tract of both men and women and is responsible for urethritis and prostatitis or vaginitis, respectively. T. vaginalis is anaerobic and therefore it does not contain mitochondria in its cytoplasm. Instead, it possesses specialized granule-like organelles called the hydrogenosomes which are involved in the parasite's carbohydrate metabolism.

The T. vaginalis genome was found to be approximately 160 Mb in size.
