With these appeared the adepts of homoeopathy, of hydropathy, of mesmerism, of phrenology, and their wonderful theories of the Christian miracles!
We identified putative transmembrane regions by prediction of the hydropathy profile using TMHMM ( TMHMM-2.0) and predicted N-linked glycosylation sites using the NetNGlyc 1.0 server (
Hydropathy analysis showed that cABCG2 protein was a hydrophobic protein and its average of hydrophobicity was 0.1394.
These envelope proteins were subjected to sequence analysis using Protparam software (36) wherein, the purpose was to study their overall aliphatic index and GRAVY score (Grand Average of hydropathy).
wt.: Molecular weight; pi: Isoelectric point; -R: Number of negative residues; +R: Number of positive residues; EC: Extinction coefficient at 280 nm; II: Instability index; AI: Aliphatic index; GRAVY: Grand Average Hydropathy) Name of the M.
Not unlike hydropathy and homeopathy, naturopathy drew from the ranks of German healers, philosophical idealists, spiritual and mental healers, vegetarians, botanics, antivaccination and antivivisectionists, and individualists who rejected authority, including licensing, in their endorsement of "every man his own physician." Emerging at a time when conventional medicine was not much different from other "panthies," and had yet to absorb modern science and bacteriology, naturopathy fed off the public's disdain for conventional medicine's heavy-handed efforts to standardize and professionalize itself as the lone repository of medical truth.
Figure 1 shows on the right the interaction matrix when the physicochemical property "Hydropathy index" is used.
(68) (D) Net charge versus hydropathy analysis predict PQBP1 is disordered.
Grand average of hydropathicity (GRAVY) is -0.132, classified as hydrophilia protein (hydrophobic protein: 0 < GRAVY < 2; hydrophilia protein: -2 < GRAVY < 0), the analysis of hydropathy profile using ProtScal program of ExPASy has the same result, and most of amino acid residues have stronger hydrophilicity, whereas N-end and C-end regions have hydrophobicity.
The results of GRAVY (grand average of hydropathy) in 3-phytase A and 3-phytase B (-0.304 and -0.33, resp.) are obtained by combining the values of hydrophobicity and hydrophilicity of the side chains in their sequences.
Glutamine has strongly similar properties (roughly the same size and the same hydropathy) as aspartic acid and asparagine, while isoleucine is similar to valine [91].
