Protein protein interaction network

Hi, all I am new in protein interaction and also analyzing RNA sequencing data.

I draw this plot by this code below using R. enter image description here

Read my PPI data

ppi_data <- read.csv("D:/ppi.csv", header = TRUE)

Create a graph from the data

ppi_network <- graph_from_data_frame(ppi_data, directed = FALSE)

Plot the network

plot(ppi_network, ertex.label.cex = 0.5, vertex.size = 5)

Structure of the data


'data.frame': 24334 obs. of 3 variables:

$ node1_name: chr "Klf6" "Klf6" "Klf6" "Klf6" ... $ node2_name: chr "Ccnd1" "Kdm6b" "Kat2a" "Hdac1" ... $ score : int 722 430 622 691 765 927 433 420 543 430 ...

In this case I only observed interaction between each protein. Is there anyway that I can get also interaction among the proteins and interaction with central protein? (other common tools..?)

Thanks sincerely,

You cannot get direct evidence of protein protein interactions from RNAseq data alone. You can only infer co-expression from this data, which can point towards an interaction, but is only a correlation. You can then verify candidate interactions through a method like co-immunoprecipitation (coIP). Additionally, you have not provided any information about the sample preparation and experimental design which will also affect the inferences you can make.
