STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

Dock8Dedicator of cytokinesis protein 8; Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) which specifically activates small GTPase CDC42 by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP. During immune responses, required for interstitial dendritic cell (DC) migration by locally activating CDC42 at the leading edge membrane of DC. Required for CD4(+) T-cell migration in response to chemokine stimulation by promoting CDC42 activation at T cell leading edge membrane. Is involved in NK cell cytotoxicity controlling polarization of microtubule-organizing center (MTOC), and possibly regulating CCDC88B-mediated lyti [...] (2100 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Cdc42
Cell division control protein 42 homolog; Plasma membrane-associated small GTPase which cycles between an active GTP-bound and an inactive GDP-bound state. In its active state binds to a variety of effector proteins to regulate cellular responses. Involved in epithelial cell polarization processes. Regulates the bipolar attachment of spindle microtubules to kinetochores before chromosome congression in metaphase. Regulates cell migration (By similarity). In neurons, plays a role in the extension and maintenance of the formation of filopodia, thin and actin-rich surface projections. Req [...]

Was
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein homolog; Effector protein for Rho-type GTPases that regulates actin filament reorganization via its interaction with the Arp2/3 complex. Important for efficient actin polymerization. Possible regulator of lymphocyte and platelet function. Mediates actin filament reorganization and the formation of actin pedestals upon infection by pathogenic bacteria. In addition to its role in the cytoplasmic cytoskeleton, also promotes actin polymerization in the nucleus, thereby regulating gene transcription and repair of damaged DNA. Promotes homologous recombinatio [...]

Lrch1
Leucine-rich repeat and calponin homology domain-containing protein 1; Acts as a negative regulator of GTPase CDC42 by sequestering CDC42-guanine exchange factor DOCK8. Probably by preventing CDC42 activation, negatively regulates CD4(+) T-cell migration in response to chemokine stimulation.
   
 
 0.865
Lrch3
DISP complex protein LRCH3; As part of the DISP complex, may regulate the association of septins with actin and thereby regulate the actin cytoskeleton.
   
 
 0.828
Wipf1
WAS/WASL-interacting protein family member 1; Plays a role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton. Contributes with NCK1 and GRB2 in the recruitment and activation of WASL. May participate in regulating the subcellular localization of WASL, resulting in the disassembly of stress fibers in favor of filopodia formation (By similarity). Plays a role in the formation of cell ruffles.
   
  
 0.790
Rhoj
Rho-related GTP-binding protein RhoJ; Plasma membrane-associated small GTPase specifically involved in angiogenesis (By similarity). Required for endothelial cell migration during vascular development via its interaction with GLUL (By similarity). Elicits the formation of F-actin-rich structures, thereby regulating endothelial cell migration. Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rho family.
   
 0.788
Dock6
Dedicator of cytokinesis protein 6; Acts as guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for CDC42 and RAC1 small GTPases (By similarity). Through its activation of CDC42 and RAC1, regulates neurite outgrowth in an vitro differentiation system.
  
 
 
0.788
Kank1
KN motif and ankyrin repeat domains 1.
 
 
  
 0.712
Dock7
Dedicator of cytokinesis protein 7; Functions as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF), which activates Rac1 and Rac3 Rho small GTPases by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP. Does not have a GEF activity for CDC42. Required for STMN1 'Ser-15' phosphorylation during axon formation and consequently for neuronal polarization (By similarity). As part of the DISP complex, may regulate the association of septins with actin and thereby regulate the actin cytoskeleton (By similarity). Has a role in pigmentation. Involved in the regulation of cortical neurogenesis through the control of rad [...]

Carmil2
Capping protein, Arp2/3 and myosin-I linker protein 2; Cell membrane-cytoskeleton-associated protein that plays a role in the regulation of actin polymerization at the barbed end of actin filaments. Prevents F-actin heterodimeric capping protein (CP) activity at the leading edges of migrating cells, and hence generates uncapped barbed ends and enhances actin polymerization. Plays a role in cell protrusion formations; involved in cell polarity, lamellipodial assembly, membrane ruffling and macropinosome formations. Involved as well in cell migration and invadopodia formation during woun [...]
