  1. For the three hydrophobins Bhp1 (class I), Bhp2 and Bhp3 (both class II), and for six hydrophobin-like proteins, the cysteine spacing is shown. Consensus cysteine spacings for class I and class II proteins were taken from [16]. The sizes (amino acids) of the unprocessed and processed proteins are indicated. N: N-terminus; Xn: Undefined number of amino acids; Underlined: Strictly conserved spacing; GRAVY: Grand average of hydropathicity of the region covering the eight cysteines. Positive GRAVY values indicate hydrophobicity [53].
