Distribution of surface-exposed fungal proteins and their division into major functional groups. C. glabrata, C. parapsilosis and C. tropicalis cells were cultured aerobically in different growth media at 37 °C for 16 h (DS, an amino acid-based, chemically defined liquid synthetic medium; AS, artificial saliva, VS, vagina-simulative medium, and AU, artificial urine) or cultured for 72 h in YPD medium under anaerobic conditions (AN). Surface-exposed proteins were identified by cell surface shaving with trypsin followed by liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry. The protein classifications were made on the basis of the Gene Ontology (GO) annotations (molecular function and involvement in similar cellular processes) from the Candida Genome Database (CGD) and Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD)
