Tutorial: Submit your interactions [top]

Interactome3D allows you to retrieve structures and build homology models for a set of interactions you provide.

Go to http://interactome3d.irbbarcelona.org and paste your interactions into the left textbox or upload them as a file (an example is available at human_interactions_example.txt). Your interactions should be provided as a list of pairs of Uniprot accession codes (AC).
Entering the list of interactions Uploading a file of interactions
You have to choose a name for your dataset and introduce your email address. Choose a name for the dataset Enter your email address
Once you have entered this data, click on the submit button. The Interactome3D pipeline will start processing your data and send you an email as soon as the results are available. The job has been submitted
By clicking on the link in your email, you will be taken to a web page summarizing statistics about your results, and you will be able to download them, browse them and visualize a subset of the result involving a list of protein of your interest.

See the following tutorials to learn how to browse the results, query the datasets with a list of proteins of your interest or download the data for offline analysis.

Tutorial: Browse Interactome3D pre-built datasets [top]

Interactome3D comes with several prebuilt datasets for entire organisms. You can access them through the link of the home page of Interactome3D. Select for instance Mus musculus. Selection of a pre-built dataset
You will be taken to a page with statistics about your results, and you will be able to download them, browse them, visualize a subset of the result involving a list of proteins of your interest or browse a subset based on GO term annotations. The dataset page
A tree like view at the bottom of the page allows you to display sub networks of proteins related to a particular GO term.

Here we expand first molecular function, then enzyme regulator activity, kinase regulator activity and finally click on kinase activator activity.
The GO tree
By clicking on one of the links you are taken to a page that displays interactions involving those proteins. The proteins are represented by circles and the interactions by the edges that connect them. Proteins and interactions with structural data are highlighted in the network (see our help page for details).

Here we click on the node Ap2A2.
The network view
By clicking on a node you can display details of the structures available for the corresponding proteins, preview them in a window and download them (see our help page for details). The protein page
If you click on one of the View buttons, the corresponding structure will be displayed on the Jmol view at the bottom right corner of the page. The view button The jmol box
You can select as many structures and models as you wish and download them. Look at our help page for a description of the file formats. Select and download structures or models
You can also click on the edge connecting two proteins and you will be taken to a page summarizing the structural data available for this interaction (see our help page for details).

Here we clicked on the edge between proteins Ap2A2 and Ap2s1.
The interaction page
In the bottom right area of the page a box displays the structure of the interaction under analysis. The jmol box
In the top right area of the page a box displays the interactome neighborhood of the protein or interaction under analyses (see our help page for details). The network view
You can go back to the original network by clicking on the Back to full network link at any time. Go back to the original network

Tutorial: Query Interactome3D with a list of proteins [top]

You can query Interactome3D with a list of proteins of your interest. On the main page you can paste a list of proteins specified as Uniprot accession codes and choose the organism you want to look at.

Here we select the proteins
and the organism Homo sapiens.
Paste the Uniprot AC of the proteins Select the organism
A page will show you the interactions involving your proteins and allow you to see details about proteins and interactions with structural data. Look at the Network help page for details about the network view and to the previous tutorial to learn about the next steps. Network view
Alternatively, you can query the dataset for an organism directly from its page (See the tutorial Browse Interactome3D pre-built datasets).

Tutorial: Download Interactome3D data [top]

The data contained in Interactome3D is also available for download and can be used for offline analyses. Access the Download page
From the download page you can access the repositories for the different organisms. The list of pre-built interactomes
If you submitted your own set of interactions, you will be able to download your results from the summary page, accessible through the link in the confirmation email that you received. Access the download page from the confirmation email
Two datasets are available. One contains the complete set of structures and models for interactions and one contains only a set of representative structures. The two types of downloadable datasets
Look at the online documentation to find out how the different datasets are built and the format of the downloadable files. The downloadable files
