From: Deep transcriptome-sequencing and proteome analysis of the hydrothermal vent annelid Alvinella pompejana identifies the CvP-bias as a robust measure of eukaryotic thermostability

Figure 5

Influence of GC-content on amino acid composition and thermostability measures. (A) Plot of the frequency of GC-rich codons (GARP) against the frequency of AT-rich codons (FYMINK) in the species of the orthologous set. (B) Average IVYWREL, (C) (E + K)/(Q + H), (D) average hydrophobicity, (E) CvP-bias, (F) and IUPred values plotted as a function of GC3-content (GC-content at the third codon position) in the species of the orthologous set. The regression lines with 95% confidence intervals and correlation coefficients with p-values are shown.
