From: 50 years of amino acid hydrophobicity scales: revisiting the capacity for peptide classification

Fig. 5

Influence of hydrophobicity parameter for separation. a Shown is the percentage of scenarios reaching a specific separation values for all sequence pools including outliers (dashed line) and without outliers (solid line). The dash-dotted line shows the best separated 5 % of all scenarios and serves as marginal value to detect the threshold for analyzing the influence of the different hydrophobicity parameter to the separation. b Shown is the influence on separation of the ten hydrophobicity parameters (Table 5) for the secondary structure based sequence pools (black), the sequence pools generated by digestion (white) and the combination of both (grey). The hydrophobicity parameters are paired (max., min.). The separation influence is calculated as absolute value of the difference between observed and expected frequency of the best 5 % of separated scenarios (Fig. 5a)
