The online Tabloid Proteome is a database of protein association network generated using publically available mass spectrometry based experiments in PRIDE. These associations represent a broad scala of biological associations between pairs of proteins that goes well beyond mere binary protein interactions. As such, the provided information is almost completely complementary to traditional direct protein interaction studies.
In addition to the collection of co-occurring protein pairs, Tabloid Proteome also links to their biological relation in existing knowledgebases. Moreover, pathway links from Reactome, protein-protein interactions from IntAct and BioGRID, protein complexes from CORUM, and paralog information from Ensembl are also superimposed. Functional annotation is provided by disease information from DisGeNET, and Gene Ontology annotations.
Tabloid Proteome was developed at the Ghent university in 2017 and published in Nucleid Acids Research (manuscript). In October 2018, the first training on Tabloid Proteome took place in Gent.
