Protein interaction databases

Curr Opin Biotechnol. 2001 Aug;12(4):334-9. doi: 10.1016/s0958-1669(00)00224-x.


Life depends on the interaction of proteins. The availability of the complete human genome sequence has highlighted the need for a tool to analyse protein interactions and several databases have been compiled for this purpose. These databases document, categorize, and analyze interacting proteins and the cellular functions of the interactions.
