Largest-ever map of interactions of plant proteins produced

An international consortium of scientists has produced the first systematic network map of interactions that occur between proteins in the plant Arabidopsis thaliana.

Known as an “interactome,” the new Arabidopsis network map defines 6,205 protein-to-protein Arabidopsis interactions involving 2,774 individual proteins. By itself, this map doubles the volume of data on protein interactions in plants that is currently available.

The Consortium’s new network map of Arabidopsis has already provided the foundation for new discoveries involving plant growth and disease resistance.
