Table 3 Summary of TreeSAAP output.

From: Extreme primary and secondary protein structure variability in the chimeric male-transmitted cytochrome coxidase subunit II protein in freshwater mussels: Evidence for an elevated amino acid substitution rate in the face of domain-specific purifying selection

  1. The six "most important" TreeSAAP categories according to [34]. Two additional properties (Alpha-helical tendencies and Turn tendencies) are given due to their potential importance to transmembrane helix formation. Absence of selection means neutrality.
