STRINGSTRING
Pitx1 protein (mouse) - STRING interaction network
"Pitx1" - Pituitary homeobox 1 in Mus musculus
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

Pitx1Pituitary homeobox 1; Sequence-specific transcription factor that binds gene promoters and activates their transcription. May play a role in the development of anterior structures, and in particular, the brain and facies and in specifying the identity or structure of hindlimb. Can independently activate and synergize with PIT-1 on pituitary-specific target gene promoters, thus may subserve functions in generating both precursor and specific cell phenotypes in the anterior pituitary gland and in several other organs. Can activate pituitary transcription of the proopiomelanocortin gene (315 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Tbx4
T-box transcription factor TBX4; Involved in the transcriptional regulation of genes required for mesoderm differentiation. Probably plays a role in limb pattern formation (452 aa)
       
 
  0.904
Tbx19
T-box transcription factor TBX19; Transcriptional regulator involved in developmental processes. Can activate POMC gene expression and repress the alpha glycoprotein subunit and thyroid-stimulating hormone beta promoters (446 aa)
     
 
  0.819
Nr5a1
Steroidogenic factor 1; Transcriptional activator. Seems to be essential for sexual differentiation and formation of the primary steroidogenic tissues. Binds to the Ad4 site found in the promoter region of steroidogenic P450 genes such as CYP11A, CYP11B and CYP21B. Also regulates the AMH/Muellerian inhibiting substance gene as well as the AHCH and STAR genes. 5’-YCAAGGYC-3’ and 5’-RRAGGTCA-3’ are the consensus sequences for the recognition by NR5A1. The SFPQ-NONO- NR5A1 complex binds to the CYP17 promoter and regulates basal and cAMP-dependent transcriptional activity (By similarity). [...] (462 aa)
     
 
  0.765
Egr1
Early growth response protein 1; Transcriptional regulator. Recognizes and binds to the DNA sequence 5’-GCG(T/G)GGGCG-3’(EGR-site) in the promoter region of target genes. Binds double-stranded target DNA, irrespective of the cytosine methylation status (By similarity). Regulates the transcription of numerous target genes, and thereby plays an important role in regulating the response to growth factors, DNA damage, and ischemia. Plays a role in the regulation of cell survival, proliferation and cell death. Activates expression of p53/TP53 and TGFB1, and thereby helps prevent tumor forma [...] (533 aa)
       
 
  0.739
Ifitm3
Interferon-induced transmembrane protein 3; IFN-induced antiviral protein which inhibits the entry of viruses to the host cell cytoplasm, permitting endocytosis, but preventing subsequent viral fusion and release of viral contents into the cytosol. Active against multiple viruses, including influenza A virus, SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV), Marburg virus (MARV) and Ebola virus (EBOV), Dengue virus (DNV), West Nile virus (WNV) and human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). Can inhibit- influenza virus hemagglutinin protein-mediated viral entry, MARV and EBOV GP1,2-mediated viral entry an [...] (137 aa)
           
  0.696
Pou1f1
Pituitary-specific positive transcription factor 1; Transcription factor involved in the specification of the lactotrope, somatotrope, and thyrotrope phenotypes in the developing anterior pituitary. Activates growth hormone and prolactin genes. Specifically binds to the consensus sequence 5’- TAAAT-3’ (317 aa)
     
 
  0.686
Bmp4
Bone morphogenetic protein 4; Induces cartilage and bone formation. Acts in concert with PTHLH/PTHRP to stimulate ductal outgrowth during embryonic mammary development and to inhibit hair follicle induction (408 aa)
           
  0.683
Lhx3
LIM/homeobox protein Lhx3; Required for the establishment of the specialized cells of the pituitary gland and the nervous system (By similarity). Involved in the development of interneurons and motor neurons in cooperation with LDB1 and ISL1. Acts as a transcriptional activator. Binds to and activates the promoter of the alpha- glycoprotein gene, and synergistically enhances transcription from the prolactin promoter in cooperation with Pou1f1/Pit-1 (402 aa)
     
   
  0.678
Lmbr1
Limb region 1 protein; Putative membrane receptor (490 aa)
           
  0.650
Tbx5
T-box transcription factor TBX5; DNA-binding protein that regulates the transcription of several genes and is involved in heart development and limb pattern formation. Binds to the core DNA motif of NPPA promoter (518 aa)
