  1. Number of proteins covered in each study are indicated. A '✔' indicates that it passes the filter, while a 'X' indicates failure. The method used at each step is also indicated. The number of targets identified in the final lists H, I, J and K are boxed and indicated in bold typeface. The symbols A', C', AX-GX are as described in the text and in Fig. 1.
