First protein interaction network of Streptococcus

What is it about?

First attempt to map all protein-protein interactions in Streptococcus pneumoniae, the bacteria that cause ear infections, pneumonia and others.

Why is it important?

Protein interactions give us clues about protein function. There are still hundreds of proteins in S. pneumoniae of completely unknown function, many of which may be important for infection or Streptococcus biology.

It's a start to investigate those proteins in more details. Much work ahead ...
