Gene expression analysis was performed on the human GeneAtlas [37]. 'Predicted, overlapping' are interactions predicted from model organisms, and also found in the known human dataset. 'Predicted, non-overlapping' are novel predictions not found in the known human interaction databases. 'Predicted, >1 org' are PPIs inferred from more than one model organism, regardless of overlap with the known human PPI network.
