Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) play an essential role for most of biological processes in cells. Many computational algorithms have thus been proposed to predict PPIs. However, most of them heavily rest on the biological information of proteins while ignoring the latent structural features of proteins presented in a PPI network. In this paper, we propose an efficient network-based prediction algorithm, namely PPISB, based on a mixed membership stochastic blockmodel. By simulating the generative process of a PPI network, PPISB is able to capture the latent community structures. The inference procedure adopted by PPISB further optimizes the membership distributions of proteins over different complexes. After that, a distance measure is designed to compute the similarity between two proteins in terms of their likelihoods of being in the same complex, thus verifying whether they interact with each other or not. To evaluate the performance of PPISB, a series of extensive experiments have been conducted with five PPI networks collected from different species and the results demonstrate that PPISB has a promising performance when applied to predict PPIs in terms of several evaluation metrics. Hence, we reason that PPISB is preferred over state-of-the-art network-based prediction algorithms especially for predicting potential PPIs.
