Figure 8

Isoelectric point and GC content. (A) The relationship between the computer-generated pI bias and the genomic GC content of prokaryotic organisms. The generated pI bias is the average calculated for 100 virtual proteomes generated for each organism assuming the same length distribution of proteins as in real proteomes and the amino acid composition calculated from the base composition characteristic for the given genome. (B) The relationship between the fraction of the basic and acidic amino acids and GC content.
