Sample instruction: Sesame salty sensitive (SS) and tolerance
(ST) samples, 5 time points (0, 2, 6, 12, 24 hours), three biological
In this project, we employed iTRAQ  to calculate the
expression quantification of sesame proteins among 10 samples, including
points in sesame salty sensitive (SS) and tolerance (ST) samples
respectively. After curation, 4,956 genes, representing 18.255% of all
sesame proteins, were detected to express among 10 samples in sesame.
The STRING database aims to collect and integrate this information, by
consolidating known and predicted protein–protein association data for a
large number of organisms. The associations in STRING include direct
(physical) interactions, as well as indirect (functional) interactions,
as long as both are specific and biologically meaningful .
In this project, we used the information of protein-protein interaction
from STRING database to detect the relationships of protein-protein
interaction of different expression protein between different samples in
sesame. And further to load resulting interactive data into Cytoscape
software to achieve interactive network .
