STRINGSTRING
Ucn2 protein (mouse) - STRING interaction network
"Ucn2" - Urocortin-2 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

Ucn2Urocortin-2; Suppresses food intake, delays gastric emptying and decreases heat-induced edema. Might represent an endogenous ligand for maintaining homeostasis after stress (By similarity); Belongs to the sauvagine/corticotropin-releasing factor/urotensin I family (113 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Crhr2
Corticotropin-releasing factor receptor 2; G-protein coupled receptor for CRH (corticotropin- releasing factor), UCN (urocortin), UCN2 and UCN3. Has high affinity for UCN. Ligand binding causes a conformation change that triggers signaling via guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and down-stream effectors, such as adenylate cyclase. Promotes the activation of adenylate cyclase, leading to increased intracellular cAMP levels (430 aa)
       
  0.994
Ucn3
Urocortin-3; Suppresses food intake, delays gastric emptying and decreases heat-induced edema. Might represent an endogenous ligand for maintaining homeostasis after stress (By similarity); Belongs to the sauvagine/corticotropin-releasing factor/urotensin I family (164 aa)
           
  0.887
Crh
Corticoliberin; Hormone regulating the release of corticotropin from pituitary gland. Induces NLRP6 in intestinal epithelial cells, hence may influence gut microbiota profile (187 aa)
           
  0.848
Ucn
Urocortin; Acts in vitro to stimulate the secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) (By similarity). Binds with high affinity to CRF receptor types 1, 2-alpha, and 2-beta (By similarity). Plays a role in the establishment of normal hearing thresholds. Reduces food intake and regulates ghrelin levels in gastric body and plasma (By similarity); Belongs to the sauvagine/corticotropin-releasing factor/urotensin I family (122 aa)
           
  0.847
Crhr1
Corticotropin-releasing factor receptor 1; G-protein coupled receptor for CRH (corticotropin- releasing factor) and UCN (urocortin). Has high affinity for CRH and UCN. Ligand binding causes a conformation change that triggers signaling via guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and down-stream effectors, such as adenylate cyclase. Promotes the activation of adenylate cyclase, leading to increased intracellular cAMP levels. Inhibits the activity of the calcium channel CACNA1H. Required for normal embryonic development of the adrenal gland and for normal hormonal responses to s [...] (415 aa)
       
 
  0.840
Fos
Proto-oncogene c-Fos; Nuclear phosphoprotein which forms a tight but non- covalently linked complex with the JUN/AP-1 transcription factor. On TGF-beta activation, forms a multimeric SMAD3/SMAD4/JUN/FOS complex, at the AP1/SMAD-binding site to regulate TGF-beta- mediated signaling (By similarity). Has a critical function in regulating the development of cells destined to form and maintain the skeleton. It is thought to have an important role in signal transduction, cell proliferation and differentiation. In growing cells, activates phospholipid synthesis, possibly by activating CDS1 an [...] (380 aa)
     
   
  0.789
Nps
Neuropeptide S; May play an important anorexigenic role. Modulates arousal and anxiety as well as increases locomotor activity. Binds to its receptor NPSR1 with nanomolar affinity to increase intracellular calcium concentrations (89 aa)
           
  0.572
Crhbp
Corticotropin-releasing factor-binding protein; Binds CRF and inactivates it. May prevent inappropriate pituitary-adrenal stimulation in pregnancy (322 aa)
           
  0.562
Tor2a
Torsin-2A; Torsin family 2, member A; Belongs to the ClpA/ClpB family. Torsin subfamily (321 aa)
           
  0.510
Pomc
Pro-opiomelanocortin; Met-enkephalin- Endogenous opiate (235 aa)
           
  0.481
