De Novo Signaling Pathway Predictions Based on Protein-Protein Interaction, Targeted Therapy and Protein Microarray Analysis
Abstract. Mapping intra-cellular signaling networks is a critical step in developing an understanding of and treatments for many devastating diseases. The predominant ways of discovering pathways in these networks are knockout and pharmacological inhibition experiments. However, experimental evidence for new pathways can be difficult to explain within existing maps of signaling networks. In this paper, we present a novel computational method that integrates pharmacological intervention experiments with protein interaction data in order to predict new signaling pathways that explain unexpected experimental results. Biologists can use these hypotheses to design experiments to further elucidate underlying signaling mechanisms or to directly augment an existing signaling network model. When applied to experimental results from human breast cancer cells targeting the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) network, our method proposes several new, biologically-viable pathways that explain t...
