Ebf4 protein (mouse) - STRING interaction network
"Ebf4" - Transcription factor COE4 in Mus musculus
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

Gene Fusion
Ebf4Transcription factor COE4; Seems to weakly activate transcription. Binds an Olf-1 consensus site in vitro (599 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
POU domain, class 4, transcription factor 2; DNA-binding transcriptional regulator and coregulator that recognizes and binds to the consensus octamer binding site 5’-AT[A/T]A[T/A]T[A/T]A-3’ in promoter of target genes. Plays a fundamental role in the gene regulatory network essential for retinal ganglion cell (RGC) differentiation. Cooperates with the transcription factor ISL1 to achieve RGC fate specification in the developing retina. Plays also a role in RGC axon formation and guidance by regulating gene expression of specific target genes. Plays a role in TNFSF11- mediated terminal [...] (411 aa)
PR domain zinc finger protein 8; Probable histone methyltransferase, preferentially acting on ’Lys-9’ of histone H3. Histone methyltransferase activity has not been confirmed in other species. Involved in the control of steroidogenesis through transcriptional repression of steroidogenesis marker genes such as CYP17A1 and LHCGR. Forms with BHLHE22 a transcriptional repressor complex controlling genes involved in neural development and neuronal differentiation. In the retina, it is required for rod bipolar and type 2 OFF-cone bipolar cell survival (688 aa)
Upstream transcription factor family member 3; Predicted gene 608 (2221 aa)
Transcription factor COE1; Transcriptional activator which recognizes variations of the palindromic sequence 5’-ATTCCCNNGGGAATT-3’; Belongs to the COE family (591 aa)
Transcription factor COE3; Transcriptional activator. Recognizes variations of the palindromic sequence 5’-ATTCCCNNGGGAATT-3’ (By similarity); Belongs to the COE family (596 aa)
Transmembrane and tetratricopeptide repeat containing 1 (942 aa)
Zinc finger protein 423; Transcription factor that can both act as an activator or a repressor depending on the context. Plays a central role in BMP signaling and olfactory neurogenesis. Associates with SMADs in response to BMP2 leading to activate transcription of BMP target genes. Acts as a transcriptional repressor via its interaction with EBF1, a transcription factor involved in terminal olfactory receptor neurons differentiation; this interaction preventing EBF1 to bind DNA and activate olfactory-specific genes. Involved in olfactory neurogenesis by participating in a developmenta [...] (1292 aa)
Class E basic helix-loop-helix protein 22; Inhibits DNA binding of TCF3/E47 homodimers and TCF3 (E47)/NEUROD1 heterodimers and acts as a strong repressor of Neurod1 and Myod-responsive genes, probably by heterodimerization with class a basic helix-loop-helix factors. Despite the presence of an intact basic domain, does not bind to DNA (By similarity). In the brain, may function as an area-specific transcription factor that regulates the postmitotic acquisition of area identities and elucidate the genetic hierarchy between progenitors and postmitotic neurons driving neocortical arealiza [...] (355 aa)
Mesoderm posterior protein 2; Transcription factor with important role in somitogenesis. Defines the rostrocaudal patterning of the somite by participating in distinct Notch pathways. Regulates also the FGF signaling pathway. Specifies the rostral half of the somites. Generates rostro-caudal polarity of somites by down-regulating in the presumptive rostral domain DLL1, a Notch ligand. Participates in the segment border formation by activating in the anterior presomitic mesoderm LFNG, a negative regulator of DLL1-Notch signaling. Acts as a strong suppressor of Notch activity. Together w [...] (370 aa)
LIM/homeobox protein Lhx2; Acts as a transcriptional activator. Stimulates the promoter of the alpha-glycoprotein gene. Transcriptional regulatory protein involved in the control of cell differentiation in developing lymphoid and neural cell types (406 aa)
