Range Archaea ~283: Bacteria ~319: Eukaryota ~472: Table - link aa
Organism Various
Reference Tiessen A, Pérez-Rodríguez P, Delaye-Arredondo LJ. Mathematical modeling and comparison of protein size distribution in different plant, animal, fungal and microbial species reveals a negative correlation between protein size and protein number, thus providing insight into the evolution of proteomes. BMC Res Notes. 2012 Feb 1 5: 85. pp.6-7 table 1PubMed ID22296664
Method The protein sequences of all organisms where obtained from the NCBI and Ensemble public databases (download date February 2010), unless otherwise stated.
Comments Table 1 shows statistical parameters of protein size in each of the 84 species of dataset 1. The average length of polypeptides in archaea (~283 aa), bacteria (~319 aa) and eukaryot (~472 aa) are significantly different (Table 1).
