The classic methodology for studying protein–protein interactions was the yeast two-hybrid system. Currently, various proteinand antibody-based arrays are emerging to study protein activities, secondary modifications and interactions. Structural proteomics has the ambitious goal of systematically understanding the structural basis for protein interactions and function. Clinical proteomics aims to use proteomic patterns for disease detection and surveillance. In this approach, high-throughput mass spectrometry generates a proteomic fingerprint of a diagnostic sample, such as serum, fine-needle or nipple fluid aspirate.

Further complexity is introduced by the potential for receptors simultaneously or successively to couple with distinct G-proteins (Fig. 6b) and the ability of a particular Gprotein to activate multiple intracellular signaling cascades (Fig. 6c). β γ G1 (a) β γ G2 β γ β γ G1 G2 (b) Intracellular second messengers cAMP Activation of membrane-bound adenylate cyclase catalyzes the conversion of ATP to the potent second messenger cAMP (Fig. 7) [46]. This cyclic nucleotide activates the heterotetrameric protein kinase A (PKA) by binding to repressive regulatory subunits (R), which then dissociate from the two catalytic subunits (C) so that phosphorylation of serine/threonine residues in proteins containing the consensus sequence Arg-Arg-X-Ser/Thr-X can occur.
