  1. a Propensities greater than one indicate favorable interactions while values less than one indicate unfavorable interactions. Ranges in parentheses indicate 95% confidence intervals calculated using the Wilson interval score (ref [62]). Corresponding raw counts are in Additional Files 1: Table S2. Suggested N and C-capping motifs corroborated by structural data are highlighted in bold.
