Association networks

- Physical Interactions
- Yeast two hybrid screens (PPI)
- Affinity purification mass spectrometry, APMS (PPI)
- Protein complementation assays (PPI)
- ChIP-Seq, ChIP-Chip (protein-DNA)
- CLIP-Seq, RIP-Seq, HITS-CLIP, PAR-CLIP (protein-RNA)

- Other measures of ‘association’
- Genetic interactions (double deletion mutants)
- Co-expression
- Functional associations
- STRING (which includes many of the above and more)

Y2H assays interactions in vivo.

Uses property that transcription factors generally have separable transcriptional activation (AD) and DNA binding (DBD) domains.

A functional transcription factor can be created if a separately expressed AD can be made to interact with a DBD.

A protein ‘bait’ B is fused to a DBD and screened against a library of protein “preys”, each fused to a AD.

- Strengths
- Takes place in vivo
- Independent of endogenous expression

- Weaknesses: False positive interactions
- Detects “possible interactions” that may not take place under physiological conditions
- May identify indirect interactions (A-C-B)

- Weaknesses: False negatives interactions
- Similar studies often reveal very different sets of interacting proteins (i.e. False negatives)
- May miss PPIs that require other factors to be present (e.g. ligands, proteins, PTMs)

- Start with affinity purification of a single epitope-tagged protein
- This enriched sample typically has a low enough complexity to be fractionated by electrophoresis techniques

- Strengths
- High specificity
- Well suited for detecting permanent or strong transient interactions (complexes)
- Detects real, physiologically relevant PPIs

- Weaknesses
- Lower sensitivity: Less suited for detecting weaker transient interactions
- May miss complexes not present under the given experimental conditions (low sensitivity)
- May identify indirect interactions (A-C-B)

Y2H by Yu et al. 2008 : 2018 proteins, 2930 interactions

PCA by Tarassov et al. 2008 : 1124 proteins, 2770 interactions

- Obligation
- obligate (only found/function together)
- non-obligate (can exist/function alone)

- Time of interaction
- permanent (complexes, often obligate)
- strong transient (require trigger, e.g. G proteins)
- weak transient (dynamic equilibrium)

- Location/compartmentalization constraints
- Same/different cellular compartment
- Tissue specificity

High confidence

(1 unshared interaction partners)

Low confidence

(4 unshared interaction partners)

- For the yeast two-hybrid experiments, the reliability of an interaction has been found to correlate well with the number of non-shared interaction partners for each interactor [6]. This can be summarized in the following raw quality score
- where NA and NB are the numbers of non-shared interaction partners for an interaction between protein A and B.

- For APMS or other IP pull-down experiments, the reliability of the inferred binary interactions has been found to correlate better with the number of times the proteins were co-purified vs. purified individually.
- where:
- NAB is the number of purifications containing both proteins, i.e. the intersection of experiments that find them,
- NAB is the total number of purifications that find either A or B, i.e. the union of experiments that find them,
- NA is the number of purifications containing A, and
- NB is the numbers of purifications containing B

Network Properties

Graphs, paths, topology

- Graph G=(V,E) is a set of vertices V and edges E
- A subgraph G’ of G is induced by some V’V and E’ E
- Graph properties:
- Connectivity (node degree, paths)
- Cyclic vs. acyclic
- Directed vs. undirected

- G(V, E)
- Where |V|=n the number of vertices
- And |E|=m the number of edges

- Graph is sparse if m ~ n
- Graph is dense if m ~ n2
- Complete graph when m = (n2-n)/2 ~ n2

- G(V,E)
- |V| = 69
- |E| = 71

- G(V,E)
- |V| = 69
- |E| = 71
- 6 connected components

A path is a sequence {x1, x2,…, xn} such that (x1,x2), (x2,x3), …, (xn-1,xn) are edges of the graph.

A closed path xn=x1 on a graph is called a graph cycle or circuit.

P(k) is probability of each degree k, i.e fraction of nodes having that degree.

For random networks, P(k) is normally distributed.

For real networks the distribution is often a power-law:

P(k) ~ k-g

Such networks are said to be scale-free

The density of the network surrounding node I, characterized as the number of triangles through I. Related to network modularity

k: neighbors of I

nI: edges between node I’s neighbors

The center node has 8 neighbors (green)

There are 4 edges between these neighbors

C = 1/7

Proteins subunits are highly interconnected and thus have a high clustering coefficient

There exists algorithms, such as MCODE, for identifying subnetworks (complexes) in large protein-protein interaction networks

- Complex systems (cell, internet, social networks), are resilient to component failure
- Network topology plays an important role in this robustness
- Even if ~80% of nodes fail, the remaining ~20% still maintain network connectivity

- Attack vulnerability if hubs are selectively targeted

- Cellular networks are assortative, i.e. hubs tend not to interact directly with other hubs.
- Hubs have been claimed to be “older” proteins (so far claimed for protein-protein interaction networks only)
- Hubs also seem to have more evolutionary pressure—their protein sequences are more conserved than average between species (shown in yeast vs. worm)
