PMID: 27121963
DOI: 10.3892/ijmm.2016.2577

[…] a combination of multiple databases to construct the network. although the protein interactions in the different databases largely overlap, the databases are complementary (). we made use of the poinet bioinformatics tool to form the human ppi network. poinet is currently a relatively popular construction tool that integrates ppi information collected by various protein databases, including […]

PMCID: 4149362
PMID: 25170921
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0103047

[…] a query-query ppi (qqppi) network, i.e., a network of protein-protein interactions consisting of query nodes only. secondly, brain tissue specific and experimentally verified data was taken from poinet (http://poinet.bioinformatics.tw/) to create another qqppi network. the two networks constructed by genes2fans and poinet were separately viewed using the open source network visualization […]

[…] a brain-specific protein phosphorylation pathway relevant for alzheimer's disease., several methods exist to create subnetworks of the human interactome based on context criteria. for example, poinet integrates the major ppi databases and allows the creation of tissue-specific networks. to our knowledge we are the first to combine edge directionality, gene expression and functional […]

[…] such as fancd2fanci and hyls1[,]. future efforts will be directed to analyze those that still do not have defined mitotic functions (marked by “?” in additional file : table s6)., we then used poinet website to obtain the “sub-network specific” ppi data with the 64 core centromere/kinetochore proteins collectively as a query group (see methods for details) [,]. the tool was chosen mainly […]

[…] intensities in the disease sample groups as comparing to the control., the most highly expressed genes and abnormally expressed genes were located on the human ppi network by an updated version of poinet [] to construct a query-query ppi (qqppi) or level 1 ppi (l1ppi) networks. the updated version of poinet contains the databases listed in table and has not been published. qqppi networks […]
