Correlation Between Hydrophobicity Sequence and Accessibility Sequence of Membrane Proteins
In this paper, we used correlation analysis to quantify the correlations between the hydrophobicity sequence and accessibility sequence of 26 α-helix bundle membrane proteins and 119 transmembrane helices. Statistical significances of these correlations were also assessed. A slightly positive correlation was found in the α-helix bundle membrane proteins due to the contribution of extramembranous domains. No correlation was found in the transmembrane domains.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
