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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
TnmdTenomodulin; May be an angiogenesis inhibitor; Belongs to the chondromodulin-1 family (317 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor scleraxis; Plays an early essential role in mesoderm formation, as well as a later role in formation of somite-derived chondrogenic lineages
Homeobox protein Mohawk; May act as a morphogenetic regulator of cell adhesion. Participates in the early events that lead to differentiation
Fibromodulin; Affects the rate of fibrils formation. May have a primary role in collagen fibrillogenesis
Decorin; May affect the rate of fibrils formation; Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class I subfamily
Growth differentiation factor 7
Keratocan; May be important in developing and maintaining corneal transparency and for the structure of the stromal matrix; Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class II subfamily
Growth/differentiation factor 5; Growth factor involved in bone and cartilage formation. During cartilage development regulates differentiation of chondrogenic tissue through two pathways. Firstly, positively regulates differentiation of chondrogenic tissue through its binding of high affinity with BMPR1B and of less affinity with BMPR1A, leading to induction of SMAD1-SMAD5-SMAD8 complex phosphorylation and then SMAD protein signaling transduction (By similarity). Secondly, negatively regulates chondrogenic differentiation through its interaction with NOG (By similarity). Required to p [...]
Biglycan; May be involved in collagen fiber assembly; Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class I subfamily
Collagen alpha-1(I) chain; Type I collagen is a member of group I collagen (fibrillar forming collagen); Belongs to the fibrillar collagen family
Thrombospondin-4; Adhesive glycoprotein that mediates cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions and is involved in various processes including cellular proliferation, migration, adhesion and attachment, inflammatory response to CNS injury, regulation of vascular inflammation and adaptive responses of the heart to pressure overload and in myocardial function and remodeling. Binds to structural extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and modulates the ECM in response to tissue damage, contributing to cardioprotective and adaptive ECM remodeling. Plays a role in ER stress response, via its [...]
