New membrane-preference scales are introduced for categories of membrane proteins with different functions. A statistical analysis is carried out with several scales to verify the relative accuracy in the prediction of the transmembrane segments of polytopic membrane proteins. The correlation between some of the scales most used and those calculated here provides criteria for selecting the most appropriate methods for a given type of protein. The parameters used in the evaluation of the… CONTINUE READING
