Proteins - Higher Functions

Notwithstanding that we generally discriminate between lower and higher
forms of life with repect to the overall organism (e.g. we consider
vertebrates higher than invertebrates), presumably, this cannot be done
for all known proteins within such organisms for the simple reason that
in some cases, a specific protein in a lower form of life may function at
a higher level than the corresponding protein in a higher form of life.

Does anyone know of any comprehensive data pertaining to comparative
protein function between organisms with repect to establishing a sort of
"functional scale"?
