18 My question: Topological modules => Evolutionary modules?
19 Identifying topological modules and their functions Core-periphery organization of modules Table 1
20 The similarity between the phylogenetic profiles of enzymes within modules
21 Spearman’s rank correlation is r= -0.3814, P-value is 0.059
22 Totally 12 of the 25 modules (module 7,3,25,9,16,4,6,22,12,15,19,21) were found to be evolutionary modules, most of which are periphery modules.
23 The evolutionary ages of modules We classified enzymes in the Homo sapiens network into seven evolutionary ages: (1) Prokaryota; (2) Protists; (3) Fungi;( 4) Nematodes;(5) Arthropods;(6) Mammalian and (7) Human Table 2
24 Evolutionary rates of enzyme genes in modules Spearman’s rank correlation is r= -0.4983, P-value= 0.011.
25 Comparison the Humo sapien network with its random counterparts (1) topological null model Z-score=19
28 Conclusions From Topology: metabolic networks exhibit highly modular core-periphery organization pattern. From Function: The core modules perform housekeeping functions, the periphery modules accomplish relatively specific functions. From Evolution: The core modules are more evolutionarily conserved, the periphery modules appear later in evolution history. => The core-periphery modularity organization reflects the functional and evolutionary requirement of metabolic system.
