Figure 4

Statistical dependencies of interacting proteins in S. cerevisiae. Bootstrap distributions of Kendall's τ between evolutionary rates, expression levels and numbers of interactions and probabilities that protein function and the processes and cellular compartments by which proteins are classified are identical for a pair of interacting proteins. The grey histograms show the distribution of the statistics obtained from 1000 bootstrap replicates and the red vertical lines indicate the observed value. The bootstrap procedure was constrained such that each sample reproduced the degree distribution of the observed PIN.
