OK, but suppose source d disagrees, and says that 
a is expressed in e. Now you have

<protein_a_expression_process> <located_in> <tissue_e> .
<protein_a_expression_process> <described_by> <source_d> .

and its all about the same process. What now 
associates d with e, and c with b? You just have 
five triple all with the same subject.
