Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Burkholderia pseudomallei (strain K96243) pan proteome (fasta)

Burkholderia mallei is the etiologic agent of glanders, a disease that is often fatal. Its natural reservoir are horses and other equines, but it can be occasionally transmitted to humans either by inhalation or through breaks in the skin. It is an obligate animal pathogen, with an intracellular localization. B. mallei is highly infectious as an aerosol and was used as a biological weapon in the American Civil War and in both World Wars. Unlike the related bacterium B.pseudomallei it is non-motile. One of its virulence factors has been identified as the type III secretion system, another as the newly characterized type VI (T6S).
