Network organization of the human autophagy system.

Nature | Jul 1, 2010

Autophagy, the process by which proteins and organelles are sequestered in autophagosomal vesicles and delivered to the lysosome/vacuole for degradation, provides a primary route for turnover of stable and defective cellular proteins. Defects in this system are linked with numerous human diseases. Although conserved protein kinase, lipid kinase and ubiquitin-like protein conjugation subnetworks controlling autophagosome formation and cargo recruitment have been defined, our understanding of the global organization of this system is limited. Here we report a proteomic analysis of the autophagy interaction network in human cells under conditions of ongoing (basal) autophagy, revealing a network of 751 interactions among 409 candidate interacting proteins with extensive connectivity among subnetworks. Many new autophagy interaction network components have roles in vesicle trafficking, protein or lipid phosphorylation and protein ubiquitination, and affect autophagosome number or flux when depleted by RNA interference. The six ATG8 orthologues in humans (MAP1LC3/GABARAP proteins) interact with a cohort of 67 proteins, with extensive binding partner overlap between family members, and frequent involvement of a conserved surface on ATG8 proteins known to interact with LC3-interacting regions in partner proteins. These studies provide a global view of the mammalian autophagy interaction landscape and a resource for mechanistic analysis of this critical protein homeostasis pathway.

TM4 Microarray Software Suite - TIGR MultiExperiment Viewer

A desktop application for the analysis, visualization and data-mining of large-scale genomic data. It is a versatile microarray tool, incorporating sophisticated algorithms for clustering, visualization, classification, statistical analysis and biological theme discovery. MeV generates informative and interrelated displays of expression and annotation data from single or multiple experiments. A huge array of alrogithms are included in MeV modules, and are available at a button-click, such as K-means clustering, Hierarchical clustering, t-Tests, Significance Analysis of Microarrays, Gene Set Enrichment Analysis, and EASE. Extensive documentation is available for helping new users get started with MeV. A Quickstart Guide provides the tutorial a brand new person will need to get their first dataset loaded and displayed in the program. Returning MEV users will want to check out the release notes to see what new features are available in the latest versions of the program. Tutorials have been written about several of its more involved features.

STRING

Database of known and predicted protein interactions. The interactions include direct (physical) and indirect (functional) associations and are derived from four sources: Genomic Context, High-throughput experiments, (Conserved) Coexpression, and previous knowledge. STRING quantitatively integrates interaction data from these sources for a large number of organisms, and transfers information between these organisms where applicable. The database currently covers 5''214''234 proteins from 1133 organisms. (2013)
