STRING protein interaction network
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 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
protein homology

Gene Fusion
Tm7sf2Delta(14)-sterol reductase; Involved in the conversion of lanosterol to cholesterol (418 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Lanosterol 14-alpha demethylase; Catalyzes C14-demethylation of lanosterol; it transforms lanosterol into 4,4'-dimethyl cholesta-8,14,24-triene-3-beta-ol
Methylsterol monooxygenase 1; Catalyzes the first step in the removal of the two C-4 methyl groups of 4,4-dimethylzymosterol; Belongs to the sterol desaturase family
Delta(24)-sterol reductase; Catalyzes the reduction of the delta-24 double bond of sterol intermediates
3-beta-hydroxysteroid-Delta(8),Delta(7)-isomerase; Catalyzes the conversion of Delta(8)-sterols to their corresponding Delta(7)-isomers; Belongs to the EBP family
Lathosterol oxidase; Catalyzes a dehydrogenation to introduce C5-6 double bond into lathosterol
Vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 51 homolog; Acts as component of the GARP complex that is involved in retrograde transport from early and late endosomes to the trans-Golgi network (TGN). The GARP complex is required for the maintenance of protein retrieval from endosomes to the TGN, acid hydrolase sorting, lysosome function, endosomal cholesterol traffic and autophagy. VPS51 participates in retrograde transport of acid hydrolase receptors, likely by promoting tethering and SNARE-dependent fusion of endosome-derived carriers to the TGN. Acts as component of the EARP complex [...]
Squalene monooxygenase; Catalyzes the first oxygenation step in sterol biosynthesis and is suggested to be one of the rate-limiting enzymes in this pathway; Belongs to the squalene monooxygenase family
RAB6A-GEF complex partner protein 2; The RIC1-RGP1 complex acts as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF), which activates RAB6A by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP and may thereby required for efficient fusion of endosome-derived vesicles with the Golgi compartment. The RIC1- RGP1 complex participates in the recycling of mannose-6-phosphate receptors
GRIP and coiled-coil domain-containing protein 2; Golgin which probably tethers transport vesicles to the trans-Golgi network (TGN) and regulates vesicular transport between the endosomes and the Golgi. As a RAB9A effector it is involved in recycling of the mannose 6-phosphate receptor from the late endosomes to the TGN. May also play a role in transport between the recycling endosomes and the Golgi. Required for maintenance of the Golgi structure, it is involved in the biogenesis of noncentrosomal, Golgi-associated microtubules through recruitment of CLASP1 and CLASP2 (By similarity)
Cation-independent mannose-6-phosphate receptor; Acts as a positive regulator of T-cell coactivation, by binding DPP4 (By similarity). Transport of phosphorylated lysosomal enzymes from the Golgi complex and the cell surface to lysosomes. Lysosomal enzymes bearing phosphomannosyl residues bind specifically to mannose-6-phosphate receptors in the Golgi apparatus and the resulting receptor-ligand complex is transported to an acidic prelyosomal compartment where the low pH mediates the dissociation of the complex. This receptor also binds IGF2; Belongs to the MRL1/IGF2R family
