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

Gene Fusion
Suv420h1Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase KMT5B; Histone methyltransferase that specifically trimethylates 'Lys-20' of histone H4. H4 'Lys-20' trimethylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional repression. Mainly functions in pericentric heterochromatin regions, thereby playing a central role in the establishment of constitutive heterochromatin in these regions. KMT5B is targeted to histone H3 via its interaction with RB1 family proteins (RB1, RBL1 and RBL2). Plays a role in myogenesis by regulating the expression of target genes, such as EID3 (By similarity); Belongs to [...] (883 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase; N-lysine methyltransferase SETD8-like
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase, H3 lysine-79 specific; DOT1-like histone H3K79 methyltransferase
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase; Suppressor of variegation 3-9 homolog 2 (Drosophila); Belongs to the class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Histone-lysine methyltransferase family. Suvar3-9 subfamily
SET domain containing 2
N-lysine methyltransferase SMYD2; Protein-lysine N-methyltransferase that methylates both histones and non-histone proteins, including p53/TP53 and RB1. Specifically methylates histone H3 'Lys-4' (H3K4me) and dimethylates histone H3 'Lys-36' (H3K36me2). Shows even higher methyltransferase activity on p53/TP53. Monomethylates 'Lys-370' of p53/TP53, leading to decreased DNA-binding activity and subsequent transcriptional regulation activity of p53/TP53. Monomethylates RB1 at 'Lys-860' (By similarity); Belongs to the class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase; Similar to Su(var)3-9 homolog; Belongs to the class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Histone-lysine methyltransferase family. Suvar3-9 subfamily
SET and MYND domain containing 3
Histone H4; Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translational modifications of histones, also called histone code, and nucleosome remodeling
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase; Ash1 (absent, small, or homeotic)-like (Drosophila)
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase; Nuclear receptor binding SET domain protein 1
