From: Predicting N-terminal myristoylation sites in plant proteins

Figure 7

Kullback-Leibler distance (relative entropy) between N-terminal amino acid sequences of myristoylated plant and animal proteins. Amino acid frequencies used to calculate relative entropies were obtained from 247 non-plant proteins classified as myristoylated by the NMT model [49], and 587 plant proteins predicted to be myristoylated by HMM266. Position 1 in this figure refers to the N-terminal methionine (for consistency with sequence database numbering), even though this residue must be removed in vivo for myristoylation to occur.
