A set of highly connected proteins (or hubs) plays an important role for the integrity of the protein interaction network of Saccharomyces cerevisae by connecting the network's intrinsic modules [1, 2]. The importance of the hubs' central placement is further confirmed by their propensity to be lethal. However, although highly emphasized, little is known about the topological coherence among the hubs. Applying a core decomposition method which allows us to identify the inherent layer structure… 
Stable evolutionary signal in a Yeast protein interaction network
TLDR
The stability of these signals in the face of extreme noise suggests that empirical protein interaction data can be integrated with orthologous clustering around these protein interactions to reliably infer local network structures in non-model organisms.
Analysis of core–periphery organization in protein contact networks reveals groups of structurally and functionally critical residues
The representation of proteins as networks of interacting amino acids, referred to as protein contact networks (PCN), and their subsequent analyses using graph theoretic tools, can provide novel

False hubs in a yeast protein-protein interaction network
TLDR
K-core decomposition is employed as a useful tool for obtaining core sub-networks from the complex PPI network in yeast and false hub proteins are found that might provide insight into protein networks and clues to understanding network evolution.
PPI network analyses of human WD40 protein family systematically reveal their tendency to assemble complexes and facilitate the complex predictions
BackgroundWD40 repeat proteins constitute one of the largest families in eukaryotes, and widely participate in various fundamental cellular processes by interacting with other molecules. Based on
A comprehensive Plasmodium falciparum protein interaction map reveals a distinct architecture of a core interactome
TLDR
The inference of potential protein interactions and their analysis contributes to the understanding of the parasite, indicating basic pathways and processes as unique targets for therapeutic intervention.
Evolutionary versatility of eukaryotic protein domains revealed by their bigram networks
TLDR
This study suggests that such a versatility measure extracted from the bigram networks correlates with the adaptivity of domains during evolution, where the network core domains are highly adaptive, significantly contrasting the network peripheral domains.
Protein interaction networks in plants
TLDR
Current progress and discussions in network biology are reviewed and emphasis is put on the question of what can be learned about protein functions and cellular processes by studying the topology of complex protein interaction networks and the evolutionary mechanisms underlying their development.

Evolution and topology in the yeast protein interaction network.
TLDR
A novel method is introduced, the evolutionary excess retention (ER), allowing for a robust and strong correlation between the conservation, essentiality, and connectivity of a yeast protein, and concludes that the relevance of the hubs for the network integrity is simultaneously reflected by a considerable probability of simultaneously being evolutionarily conserved and essential.
Interaction and domain networks of yeast
TLDR
Fairly small sets of highly connected proteins and domains shape the topologies of the underlying networks, emphasizing a kind of backbone the nets are based on, and their mutational effect on the cell is considered by a perturbation analysis.
Evolutionary conservation of motif constituents in the yeast protein interaction network
TLDR
It is found that the conservation of proteins in distinct topological motifs correlates with the interconnectedness and function of that motif and also depends on the structure of the overall interactome topology.
Lethality and centrality in protein networks
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the phenotypic consequence of a single gene deletion in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is affected to a large extent by the topological position of its protein product in the complex hierarchical web of molecular interactions.
Functional organization of the yeast proteome by systematic analysis of protein complexes
TLDR
The analysis provides an outline of the eukaryotic proteome as a network of protein complexes at a level of organization beyond binary interactions, which contains fundamental biological information and offers the context for a more reasoned and informed approach to drug discovery.
Subnetwork hierarchies of biochemical pathways
TLDR
A method to decompose biochemical networks into subnetworks based on the global geometry of the network is presented and is applied to 43 organisms from the WIT database.
Bioinformatics analysis of experimentally determined protein complexes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
It is demonstrated quantitatively that protein complexes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are comprised of a core in which subunits are highly coexpressed, display the same deletion phenotype (essential or nonessential), and share identical functional classification and cellular localization.
Analyzing yeast protein–protein interaction data obtained from different sources
TLDR
The results indicate that existing large-scale protein interaction data sets are nonsaturating and that integrating many different experimental data sets yields a clearer biological view than any single method alone.

Comparison of the HMS-PCI data set with interactions reported in the literature revealed an average threefold higher success rate in detection of known complexes compared with large-scale two-hybrid studies.
A Combined Experimental and Computational Strategy to Define Protein Interaction Networks for Peptide Recognition Modules
TLDR
A strategy combining computational prediction of interactions from phage-display ligand consensus sequences with large-scale two-hybrid physical interaction tests is developed, resulting in a strategy containing 59 highly likely interactions common to both networks.
