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: A modified tryptophan, β-[2-(2,2,5,7,8-pentamethylchroman-6-sulphonyl)-indol-3-yl]alanine, Trp(2 − Pmc) = Tpc has been synthesized. Replacement of tryptophan in a bovine lactoferricin model peptide with the modified tryptophan resulted in peptides with a substantially increased antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. The most active peptides against each bacterial strain displayed minimal inhibitory concentrations of 7.5 μg/ml.
