Extended Data Fig. 5: Alternative metrics for the characterization of SDSS satellites’ star-formation status.

From: Anisotropic satellite galaxy quenching modulated by black hole activity

Extended Data Fig. 5

a, b, The modulation observed in the average specific SFR (a) and distance from the star-formation main sequence (b) of SDSS satellites closely follows that shown by the fraction of quiescent satellites in Fig. 2. Regardless of the metric used to characterize the star-formation properties of satellite galaxies, there is a clear dependence on the orientation with respect to the central galaxy. Error bars indicate the 1σ uncertainty and yellow lines mark the location of the minor and major axes.
