Results emitted by NERVE after the M. tuberculosis H37Rv proteome analysis. NERVE selected 331 proteins out of 3989 proteins of M. tuberculosis H37Rv proteome. The selection of vaccine candidates was based on the analysis of several important properties: ≥50% of adhesion probability, fewer than two transmembrane regions, no protein similarity to human proteome, not membrane or cytoplasmic localization. Conserved values are also shown, comparing each candidate against M. bovis and BCG proteomes. Finally, NERVE search and obtain a putative function for each protein.
