Effect of interolog transfer across evolutionary distance. Interologous protein interactions were predicted from the known human PPI network. (a) The mean Cw for the predicted network in each model organism (mean ± standard deviation), averaged over all nodes with k > 1. P values indicate the significance of the difference from the human interactome. (b) The mean co-localization for each model organism network is shown, normalized against the number of PPIs with localization data for both proteins. (c) The Pearson correlation of genes encoding interacting proteins in each organism (mean ± standard deviation). In all cases, the average correlation is significantly higher than a randomized network (P << 0.001). In each plot, the dotted line indicates the average level for the human network.
