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
Slc31a1High affinity copper uptake protein 1; High-affinity, saturable copper transporter involved in dietary copper uptake (187 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Copper-transporting ATPase 1; May supply copper to copper-requiring proteins within the secretory pathway, when localized in the trans-Golgi network. Under conditions of elevated extracellular copper, it relocalized to the plasma membrane where it functions in the efflux of copper from cells (By similarity)
Copper transport protein ATOX1; Binds and deliver cytosolic copper to the copper ATPase proteins. May be important in cellular antioxidant defense (By similarity)
COX17 cytochrome c oxidase copper chaperone
Copper-transporting ATPase 2; Copper ion transmembrane transporter involved in the export of copper out of the cells, such as the efflux of hepatic copper into the bile
Natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 2; May serve to import iron into the mitochondria (By similarity). Important in metal transport, in particular iron. Can also transport zinc, manganese, cobalt, cadmium, copper, nickel and lead. Involved in apical iron uptake into duodenal enterocytes. Involved in iron transport from acidified endosomes into the cytoplasm of erythroid precursor cells. May play an important role in hepatic iron accumulation and tissue iron distribution; Belongs to the NRAMP family
Copper chaperone for superoxide dismutase; Delivers copper to copper zinc superoxide dismutase (SOD1); In the C-terminal section; belongs to the Cu-Zn superoxide dismutase family
Ceruloplasmin; Ceruloplasmin is a blue, copper-binding (6-7 atoms per molecule) glycoprotein. It has ferroxidase activity oxidizing Fe(2+) to Fe(3+) without releasing radical oxygen species. It is involved in iron transport across the cell membrane. May also play a role in fetal lung development or pulmonary antioxidant defense. involved in iron transport across the cell membrane (By similarity). Provides Cu(2+) ions for the ascorbate-mediated deaminase degradation of the heparan sulfate chains of GPC1
Copper chaperone for superoxide dismutase
Cytochrome c oxidase assembly homolog 11 (yeast)
Cytochrome c oxidase assembly protein COX11, mitochondrial-like
