Figure 4

A plot of the hydropathy value (GRAVY Index) [111]of P. superbus putative novel peptides and the 13 predicted P. superbus LEA proteins against their predicted degree of disorder, as determined by the IUPred program [110]. (GRAVY = Grand average of hydropathicity); hydrophilic proteins typically have hydropathy values < -1 [154]. Green lines represent the boundaries that delimit a group of novel hydrophilic peptides that are predominantly disordered.
