Figure 5. Altered hydrophobicity of R54P in CRYAA protein. A: The hydrophobicity of Wild-type CRYAA was predicted using the ProtScale program on the Expasy proteomics server. B: The hydrophobicity of mutant type CRYAA was also predicted in the same way. Compared to WT, R54P dramatically enhances the
local hydrophobicity, which is indicated by the rectangle.
