I need to understand something about the operations in String-DB. Say I have two Human proteins, gene names being ACTB and ITGB7(Which I know to interact) and I need to get ALL the interactions of these two proteins(along with interactions WITHIN the interactors), supported by two prediction methods viz. 'Experiments' and 'Databases' and at 'high confidence' value 0f 0.7000.
When I submit the two proteins using "multiple names" option I get the initial complex of ACTB bound to ITGB7. To expand this complex ie. to get the 'first neighbors' of these two proteins, which option(s) do I choose? Do I specify an arbitrary large value say 1000 in 'additional (white) nodes' field ?
Are there any suitable way to iterate at various depth (level 1, 2,...) to retrieve data?
