Duplicability of self-interacting human genes

Perez-Bercoff, Asa; Makino, Takashi; McLysaght, Aoife

Description

BACKGROUND There is increasing interest in the evolution of protein-protein interactions because this should ultimately be informative of the patterns of evolution of new protein functions within the cell. One model proposes that the evolution of new protein-protein interactions and protein complexes proceeds through the duplication of self-interacting genes. This model is supported by data from yeast. We examined the relationship between gene duplication and self-interaction in the human...[Show more]
