PMCID: 4216010
PMID: 25360770
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0110936

[…] to uncover how gene groups associated with different diseases are related to one another in the context of protein-protein interactions, a protein-protein interaction database is needed. we used ppitrim to create such a database. by processing irefindex , which incorporates entries from all major protein interaction databases, ppitrim can produce a protein-protein interaction database […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0100098

[…] most similar complexes., we obtained the evidences for protein complexes (associations) and protein-protein interactions in yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae) and human (homo sapiens) by running the ppitrim script (version 1.3) with the irefindex database (candidate for release 10.0, dated nov 23rd 2012) as input (see and ). the ppitrim script outputs evidences for three classes […]

[…] ppi network was reconstructed for the immunome proteins (see workflow in figure ). ppi data were retrieved from irefindex database (version 9.0) which compiles ppis from the major repositories []. ppitrim (version 1.2.1) was used for general filtering according to stojmirovic et al. []. only experimentally verified and binary ppis were retained. moreover, multiple binary ppis encoded […]

[…] over time and (2) when the same interaction is included in various sources, the duplicates are not necessarily consolidated. to address these limitations, stojmirović and yu developed a parser ppitrim whose results identify the genes according to their more stable integer identifiers in ncbi's entrez gene database. the ppitrim output files are available […]
