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:
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

CtswCathepsin W; May have a specific function in the mechanism or regulation of T-cell cytolytic activity (371 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ecm1
Extracellular matrix protein 1; Involved in endochondral bone formation as negative regulator of bone mineralization. Stimulates the proliferation of endothelial cells and promotes angiogenesis. Inhibits MMP9 proteolytic activity (By similarity)
     
 0.911
Timp3
Metalloproteinase inhibitor 3; Complexes with metalloproteinases (such as collagenases) and irreversibly inactivates them by binding to their catalytic zinc cofactor. May form part of a tissue-specific acute response to remodeling stimuli
   
 
 0.904
Lgals3bp
Galectin-3-binding protein; Promotes integrin-mediated cell adhesion. May stimulate host defense against viruses and tumor cells (By similarity)
   
 
 0.902
Apoh
Beta-2-glycoprotein 1; Binds to various kinds of negatively charged substances such as heparin, phospholipids, and dextran sulfate. May prevent activation of the intrinsic blood coagulation cascade by binding to phospholipids on the surface of damaged cells
     
  0.900
Itih3
Inter-alpha-trypsin inhibitor heavy chain H3; May act as a carrier of hyaluronan in serum or as a binding protein between hyaluronan and other matrix protein, including those on cell surfaces in tissues to regulate the localization, synthesis and degradation of hyaluronan which are essential to cells undergoing biological processes
     
  0.900
Itih4
Inter alpha-trypsin inhibitor, heavy chain 4; Type II acute-phase protein (APP) involved in inflammatory responses to trauma. May also play a role in liver development or regeneration
     
  0.900
Rarres2
Retinoic acid receptor responder protein 2; Adipocyte-secreted protein (adipokine) that regulates adipogenesis, metabolism and inflammation through activation of the chemokine-like receptor 1 (CMKLR1). Its other ligands include G protein-coupled receptor 1 (GPR1) and chemokine receptor-like 2 (CCRL2). Positively regulates adipocyte differentiation, modulates the expression of adipocyte genes involved in lipid and glucose metabolism and might play a role in angiogenesis, a process essential for the expansion of white adipose tissue. Also acts as a proinflammatory adipokine, causing an i [...]
     
  0.900
Clec3b
Tetranectin; Tetranectin binds to plasminogen and to isolated kringle 4. May be involved in the packaging of molecules destined for exocytosis (By similarity)
     
  0.900
Spp2
Secreted phosphoprotein 24; Could coordinate an aspect of bone turnover
     
  0.900
Cdc37l1
Hsp90 co-chaperone Cdc37-like 1; Co-chaperone that binds to numerous proteins and promotes their interaction with Hsp70 and Hsp90; Belongs to the CDC37 family
     
  0.900
