Figure 3

Comparisons of amino acid similarity profiles of PMBEC and BLOSUM62. Each amino acid profile of 20 elements was normalized to a length of 1.0 with zero mean to allow direct comparison between the two matrices. Serine-specific amino acid similarity profiles of the two matrices share a high correlation. Glutamic Acid-specific ones, however, significantly differ for the substitutions involving charged residues: (Glutamic Acid (E) -> Lysine (K)) and (Glutamic Acid (E) -> Arginine (R)).
