Computational and Statistical Analyses of Amino Acid Usage and Physico-Chemical Properties of the Twelve Late Embryogenesis Abundant Protein Classes

Figure 3

Boxplot representation of charged amino acid usage by the 12 LEAP classes, IDP and FS proteins.

The percentage of each amino acid was first calculated for each LEAP class. This value was then divided by the percentage of each amino acid found in the release 2010_04 of UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot [41]. This ratio thus describes the frequency of usage of each amino acid by LEAPs. The line corresponds to a ratio equal to 1. (A) Ratio for Asp. (B) Ratio for Glu. (C) Ratio for Arg. (D) Ratio for Lys.
