Description

Repeatedly applies the function LCdelta to make combinations of columns in the affiliation matrix representing the protein complex membership graph (PCMG) for AP-MS data.

Usage

1
mergeComplexes(bhmax,adjMat,VBs=NULL,VPs=NULL,simMat=NULL,sensitivity=.75,specificity=.995,Beta=0,commonFrac=2/3,wsVal = 2e7)

Arguments

bhmax

Initial complex estimates coming from bhmaxSubgraph

adjMat

Adjacency matrix of bait-hit data from an AP-MS experiment. Rows correspond to baits and columns to hits.

VBs

VBs is an optional vector of viable baits.

VPs

VPs is an optional vector of viable prey.

simMat

An optional square matrix with entries between 0 and 1. Rows and columns correspond to the proteins in the experiment, and should be reported in the same order as the columns of adjMat. Higher values in this matrix are interpreted to mean higher similarity for protein pairs.

sensitivity

Believed sensitivity of AP-MS technology.

specificity

Believed specificity of AP-MS technology.

Beta

Optional additional parameter for the weight to give data in simMat in the logistic regression model.

commonFrac

This is the fraction of baits that need to be overlapping for a complex combination to be considered.

wsVal

A numeric. This is the value assigned to the work-space in the call to fisher.test.

Details

The local modeling algorithm for AP-MS data described by Scholtens and Gentleman (2004) and Scholtens, Vidal, and Gentleman (2005) uses a two-component measure of protein complex estimate quality, namely P=LxC. Columns in cMat represent individual complex estimates. The algorithm works by starting with a maximal BH-complete subgraph estimate of cMat, and then improves the estimate by combining complexes such that P=LxC increases.

By default commonFrac is set relatively high at 2/3. This means that some potentially reasonable complex combinations could be missed. For smaller data sets, users may consider decreasing the fraction. For larger data sets, this may cause a large increase in computation time.

Value

A list of character vectors containing the names of the proteins in the estimated complexes.
