Fly Paper: Mapping the Protein Interactions of Our Distant Relative

Professor of Cell Biology Spyros Artavanis-Tsakonas and colleagues built a map that shows how thousands of proteins in a fruit fly cell communicate with each other. This is the largest and most detailed protein interaction map of a multicellular organism, demonstrating how approximately one third of the proteins cooperate to keep life going. Understanding how proteins communicate and interact with each other is key to understanding disease.
