[…] according to. the exponentially modified protein abundance index (empai) was calculated by the following formula:, , the number of «observable» peptides per protein was calculated by the protein digestion simulator program. to facilitate visualization and comparison, samples with missing empai values for a particular protein were assigned half the minimum empai value for that protein […]

[…] (marvin 14.7.7, 2014). the inverse log of ka values were calculated using the default parameters., in silico digests were performed using freely available software ( fasta files containing the proteomes for h. sapiens, s. cerevisiae, e. coli, and h. salinarum were downloaded from the swiss-prot database […]

[…] (psm) with a filter list containing all possible tryptic peptides from the tag = x database. to generate the filter list, we first performed in silico digestion of the tag = x protein database using protein digestion simulator software v.2.2.5053 (retrieved from up to five missed cleavages were considered and all fully tryptic peptides […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1003485

[…] normalized the observed spectral counts for each orf by the number of possible fully tryptic peptides in the orf. the number of possible fully tryptic peptides for each orf was determined using the protein digestion simulator ( default settings were used, except the parameter “max missed cleavages” was set to 0 and “minimum residue […]
