Conservation of the proteins as a function of their connectivity in the human immunome PPI network. Conservation is measured by the average entropy of the proteins. Data points are binned so that a minimum of 6 points are in each degree interval. The conclusion, that proteins with high connectivity never have high entropy, does not depend on the binning. The notation [11,14) means a bin for degree values 11, 12 and 13.
