A Protein Interaction Network Analysis for Yeast Integral Membrane Protein
Although the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is the best exemplified single-celled eukaryote, the vast number of protein-protein interactions of integral membrane proteins of Saccharomyces cerevisiae have not been characterized by experiments. Here, based on the kernel method of Greedy Kernel Principal Component analysis plus Linear Discriminant Analysis, we identify 300 protein-protein interactions involving 189 membrane proteins and get the outcome of a highly connected protein-protein interactions network. Furthermore, we study the global topological features of integral membrane proteins network of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. These results give the comprehensive description of protein-protein interactions of integral membrane proteins and reveal global topological and robustness of the interactome network at a system level. This work represents an important step towards a comprehensive understanding of yeast protein interactions.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
