aAdp is the activity measured using the in vitro translated peptide.
bAsy is the activity measured using the chemically synthesized peptide. For detail, see [18].
cNot accurate; SPR-measured repeatedly but the values obtained were not sufficiently reliable. A rough estimation is given in the parenthesis.
dGrand average of hydropathy value (source: http://www.bioinformatics.org/sms2/protein_gravy.html).
