A Protein Group (similar to Mascot® protein hit) is a collection of proteins identified by a set of peptides. A Protein Group contains not only all proteins covered by the same set of peptides but also all proteins covered by a subset of these peptides. In details, a Protein Group:
A Protein Group is always attached to a Context, Search or User Context. For the latter, protein groups are obtained when running the Protein Grouping algorithm on a given context.
Protein groups are associated to a context, thus it is possible to browse protein groups for a specific context.
This window list all protein groups by their typical protein accession (represented by ). At least, the following properties are displayed :
proteinsin group (in sameset, in subset).
maskedspecify if protein group is masked (after a filtereing )
If other properties are associated to the protein group or typical protein, such as spectral count, they could also be displayed (see properties general description page)
For each group a list of all peptides used to identify the proteins is also displayed.
Masked protein groups are displayed in gray and italic.
hEIDI allow users to access protein group's detail from different place.
The protein group window shows
If you select another protein from the sameset/subset tabs, the table showing peptides will be updated accordingly. Only peptide matching the selected protein will be displayed.
Peptide information is visible in the protein group view (context's protein group list or protein group details, see above) but also in the list of all peptides of a context.
A '+' appears in front of each peptide node. If you deploy it, you will explore the child peptide, i.e. the peptides that belong to the contexts below
