Petti AA and Church GM (2005) A network of transcriptionally coordinated functional modules in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Genome Res 15(9):1298-306
Abstract: Recent computational and experimental work suggests that functional modules underlie much of cellular physiology and are a useful unit of cellular organization from the perspective of systems biology. Because interactions among modules can give rise to higher-level properties that are essential to cellular function, a complete knowledge of these interactions is necessary for future work in systems biology, including in silico modeling and metabolic engineering. Here we present a computational method for the systematic identification and analysis of functional modules whose activity is coordinated at the level of transcription. We applied this method, Search for Pairwise Interactions (SPIN), to obtain a global view of functional module connectivity in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and to provide insight into the biological mechanisms underlying this coordination. We also examined this global network at higher resolution to obtain detailed information about the interactions of particular module pairs. For instance, our results reveal possible transcriptional coordination of glycolysis and lipid metabolism by the transcription factor Gcr1p, and further suggest that glycolysis and phosphoinositide signaling may regulate each other reciprocally.
