Td designed sequences are statistically strongly biased by optimization the design energy.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
Let us continue examination of the simplified design scheme, with δB d = 0, when only surface energy biases the choice of sequences (design by solvation).

FIG. 2: (Color online). A comparison of original distribution and surface monomer distribution with design, together with the case of without design.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
Since design Hamiltonian (5) is quadratic in σ , the said “design field” is proportional to σ - an average value of σ defined self-consistently.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
For bimodal distribution, glass temperature is design independent, while in Gaussian distribution, glass temperature increases for better design condition.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
Specifically, large design solvation strength Γd /δB d ≫ Γ/δB would make ∆T (3) d > 0 and in this sense the design makes folded state more stable.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
This is not because designability is unimportant - it is very important indeed, but our goal is to look at the role of sequence solvation effect, so to make this task manageable, we have to sacrifice the designability issue as a zeroth approximation.
