Hydrophobicity plot

Red solid plot : values according to the hydrophobicity scale of Kyte and Doolittle (reference paper).
Yellow dashed plot : Experimentally determined hydrophobicity scale for proteins at membrane interfaces(reference paper).
Green dotted-dashed plot : prediction of transmembrane helices (reference paper). In this scale (unlike the others), more negative values reflect greater hydrophobicity.

Abstract: The camel (camelus dromedarius) milk proteose peptone 3 (PP3) was purified successively by size exclusion fast protein liquid chromatography and reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography and then characterized by amino acid residue composition determination and chemical microsequencing after CNBr or trypsin cleavages. In comparison with the previously reported structure of camel milk whey protein, the camel PP3 contains an insertion in the N-terminal region which has approximately 24 residues, whereas the remaining C-terminal regions of these two homologous proteins are essentially identical. The camel PP3 seems to contain a potential O-glycosylation site localized in this insertion and 2 or 3 phosphorylated serine residues. PP3 belongs to the glycosylation-dependent cell adhesion molecule 1 (GlyCAM-1) family and could therefore play an immunological role in the camel or its suckling young.
