Abstract: Signaling pathways transmit information through protein interaction networks that are dynamically regulated by complex extracellular cues. We developed LUMIER (for luminescence-based mammalian interactome mapping), an automated high-throughput technology, to map protein-protein interaction networks systematically in mammalian cells and applied it to the transforming growth factor–ß (TGFß) pathway. Analysis using self-organizing maps and k-means clustering identified links of the TGFß pathway to the p21-activated kinase (PAK) network, to the polarity complex, and to Occludin, a structural component of tight junctions. We show that Occludin regulates TGFß type I receptor localization for efficient TGFß-dependent dissolution of tight junctions during epithelial-to-mesenchymal transitions.
