STRINGSTRING
Msx1 protein (mouse) - STRING interaction network
"Msx1" - Homeobox, msh-like 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

Msx1Homeobox, msh-like 1; Acts as a transcriptional repressor. May play a role in limb-pattern formation. Acts in cranofacial development and specifically in odontogenesis (303 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Pax9
Paired box gene 9; Transcription factor required for normal development of thymus, parathyroid glands, ultimobranchial bodies, teeth, skeletal elements of skull and larynx as well as distal limbs (342 aa)
     
 
  0.920
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)
     
   
  0.912
Fgf8
Fibroblast growth factor 8; Plays an important role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and cell migration. Required for normal brain, eye, ear and limb development during embryogenesis. Required for normal development of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neuronal system. Plays a role in neurite outgrowth in hippocampal cells (By similarity). Cooperates with Wnt-1 in mouse mammary tumor virus- induced murine mammary tumorigenesis (PubMed-7884899) (268 aa)
           
  0.846
Msx2
Homeobox, msh-like 2; Acts as a transcriptional regulator in bone development. Represses the ALPL promoter activity and antogonizes the stimulatory effect of DLX5 on ALPL expression during osteoblast differentiation. Probable morphogenetic role. May play a role in limb-pattern formation. In osteoblasts, suppresses transcription driven by the osteocalcin FGF response element (OCFRE). Binds to the homeodomain-response element of the ALPL promoter (267 aa)
       
0.823
Wnt1
Wingless-related MMTV integration site 1; Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. In some developmental processes, is also a ligand for the coreceptor RYK, thus triggering Wnt signaling. Probable developmental protein. May be a signaling molecule important in CNS development. Is likely to signal over only few cell diameters. Proeminent role in the induction of the mesencephalon and cerebellum. May play a crucial role in the morphogenesis of the neural tube and/or the early stages of CNS development. Has a role in osteoblast function and bone developm [...] (370 aa)
     
   
  0.812
Msx3
Homeobox, msh-like 3; Acts as a potent transcriptional repressor of MSX1 (204 aa)
         
0.807
Tbp
TATA box binding protein; General transcription factor that functions at the core of the DNA-binding multiprotein factor TFIID. Binding of TFIID to the TATA box is the initial transcriptional step of the pre- initiation complex (PIC), playing a role in the activation of eukaryotic genes transcribed by RNA polymerase II. Component of the transcription factor SL1/TIF-IB complex, which is involved in the assembly of the PIC (preinitiation complex) during RNA polymerase I-dependent transcription. The rate of PIC formation probably is primarily dependent on the rate of association of SL1 wi [...] (316 aa)
       
 
  0.779
Hist1h1b
Histone cluster 1, H1b; Histone H1 protein binds to linker DNA between nucleosomes forming the macromolecular structure known as the chromatin fiber. Histones H1 are necessary for the condensation of nucleosome chains into higher-order structured fibers. Acts also as a regulator of individual gene transcription through chromatin remodeling, nucleosome spacing and DNA methylation (By similarity) (223 aa)
       
 
  0.769
Wnt3a
Wingless-related MMTV integration site 3A; Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Wnt-3 and Wnt-3a play distinct roles in cell-cell signaling during morphogenesis of the developing neural tube (352 aa)
     
   
  0.767
Fgf4
Fibroblast growth factor 4; Plays an important role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, and cell differentiation. Is essential for survival of the postimplantation mouse embryo. Required for normal limb and cardiac valve development during embryogenesis (202 aa)
