Objective

Duchenne muscular dystrophy as one of the mortal diseases is prominent to study in terms of molecular investigation. In this study, the protein interaction map of this muscle-wasting condition is generated to gain a better knowledge of interactome profile of DMD.

Materials & Methods

 Applying Cytoscape and String Database, the protein-protein interaction network was constructed and the gene ontology of the constructed network was analyzed for biological process, molecular function, and cell component annotations.

Results

The results indicate that among 100 proteins that are related to DMD, Dystrophin, Utrophin, Caveolin 3, and Myogenic differentiation 1 play key roles in DMD network. In addition, the gene ontology analysis showed that regulation processes, kinase activity and sarcoplasmic reticulum are the highlighted biological processes, molecular function, and cell component enrichments respectively for the proteins related to DMD.  

Conclusion

In conclusion, the central proteins and the enriched ontologies can be suggested as possible prominent agents in DMD; however, the validation studies may be required.
