Figure 1

Growth in the number of signal transduction proteins encoded in complete microbial genomes. A. Histidine kinases (circles), methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins (MCPs, squares) and Ser/Thr/Tyr protein kinases (STYKs, triangles). B. Diguanylate cyclases (GGDEF domains, diamonds), c-di-GMP-specific phosphodiesterases (EAL domains, triangles), and adenylate cyclases (circles). Open symbols indicate the total number of proteins with the corresponding domains, closed symbols – the number of membrane-bound proteins of each kind.
