Table 2 Number of singular proteins and proteins in complexes of different sizes in the different data sets

From: Structural disorder promotes assembly of protein complexes

Complex size Yeast (Gavin06) E. coli (Arifuzzaman06) E. coli (Butland05) E. coli (Gully06)
singular proteins 241    
2 – 4 proteins 346 1446 367 322
5 – 10 proteins 650 1573 226 441
11 – 20 proteins 789 827 186 382
21 – 30 proteins 647 187 194 325
31 – 100 proteins 747 57 128 245
  1. For yeast, those proteins were deemed singular for which no binding partners have been found in each study (they were not cross-checked against each other). For E. coli, those proteins in Swiss-Prot were deemed singular (altogether 1922 proteins), for which neither in IntAct nor in the Swiss-Prot annotation lines did we find any evidence of complex-forming.
