Tbx5 protein (Rattus norvegicus) - STRING interaction network
"Tbx5" - T-box transcription factor TBX5 in Rattus norvegicus
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
Tbx5T-box transcription factor TBX5 ; DNA-binding protein that regulates the transcription of several genes and is involved in heart development and limb pattern formation (517 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Homeobox protein Nkx-2.5 ; Implicated in commitment to and/or differentiation of the myocardial lineage. Acts as a transcriptional activator of ANF in cooperation with GATA4 (By similarity). It is transcriptionally controlled by PBX1 and acts as a transcriptional repressor of CDKN2B. Together with PBX1, it is required for spleen development through a mechanism that involves CDKN2B repression (By similarity) (319 aa)
Transcription factor GATA-4 ; Transcriptional activator that binds to the consensus sequence 5’-AGATAG-3’ and plays a key role in cardiac development (By similarity). Acts as a transcriptional activator of ANF in cooperation with NKX2-5 (By similarity). Promotes cardiac myocyte enlargement (By similarity). Required during testicular development (By similarity). Involved in bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-mediated induction of cardiac-specific gene expression (PubMed-15329343). Binds to BMP response element (BMPRE) DNA sequences within cardiac activating regions (PubMed-15329343). May [...] (440 aa)
Myocyte enhancer factor 2C (473 aa)
Transcription activator BRG1 ; Transcriptional coactivator cooperating with nuclear hormone receptors to potentiate transcriptional activation. Component of the CREST-BRG1 complex, a multiprotein complex that regulates promoter activation by orchestrating a calcium-dependent release of a repressor complex and a recruitment of an activator complex. In resting neurons, transcription of the c-FOS promoter is inhibited by BRG1-dependent recruitment of a phospho-RB1-HDAC repressor complex. Upon calcium influx, RB1 is dephosphorylated by calcineurin, which leads to release of the repressor c [...] (1613 aa)
Sal-like 4 (Drosophila) (1070 aa)
Probable global transcription activator SNF2L2 (1597 aa)
Myocyte-specific enhancer factor 2A ; Transcriptional activator which binds specifically to the MEF2 element, 5’-YTA[AT](4)TAR-3’, found in numerous muscle- specific genes. Also involved in the activation of numerous growth factor- and stress-induced genes. Mediates cellular functions not only in skeletal and cardiac muscle development, but also in neuronal differentiation and survival. Plays diverse roles in the control of cell growth, survival and apoptosis via p38 MAPK signaling in muscle-specific and/or growth factor-related transcription. In cerebellar granule neurons, phosphoryla [...] (503 aa)
Gap junction alpha-5 protein ; One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell (356 aa)
Heart- and neural crest derivatives-expressed protein 2 ; Essential for cardiac morphogenesis, particularly for the formation of the right ventricle and of the aortic arch arteries. Required for vascular development and regulation of angiogenesis, possibly through a VEGF signaling pathway. Plays also an important role in limb development, particularly in the establishment of anterior-posterior polarization, acting as an upstream regulator of sonic hedgehog (SHH) induction in the limb bud. Is involved in the development of branchial arches, which give rise to unique structures in the he [...] (104 aa)
Noggin precursor ; Essential for cartilage morphogenesis and joint formation. Inhibitor of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP) signaling which is required for growth and patterning of the neural tube and somite (By similarity). Inhibits chondrocyte differentiation through its interaction with GDF5 and, probably, GDF6 (By similarity) (232 aa)
