STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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

Sstr5Somatostatin receptor type 5; Receptor for somatostatin-28. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which inhibit adenylyl cyclase. Increases cell growth inhibition activity of SSTR2 following heterodimerization (362 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Sst
Somatostatin; Somatostatin inhibits the release of somatotropin
   
 0.989
Grm8
Metabotropic glutamate receptor 8
     
 0.957
Pomc
Pro-opiomelanocortin; Met-enkephalin: Endogenous opiate; Belongs to the POMC family
   
 0.945
Rln3
Relaxin-3; May play a role in neuropeptide signaling processes. Ligand for LGR7, relaxin-3 receptor-1 and relaxin-3 receptor-2 (By similarity); Belongs to the insulin family
    
 0.944
Npy
Pro-neuropeptide Y; NPY is implicated in the control of feeding and in secretion of gonadotrophin-release hormone; Belongs to the NPY family
   
 0.938
Tas2r108
Taste receptor type 2 member 4; Gustducin-coupled receptor implicated in the perception of bitter compounds in the oral cavity and the gastrointestinal tract. Signals through PLCB2 and the calcium-regulated cation channel TRPM5 (By similarity). In airway epithelial cells, binding of denatonium increases the intracellular calcium ion concentration and stimulates ciliary beat frequency (By similarity)
     
 0.936
Drd2
D(2) dopamine receptor; Dopamine receptor whose activity is mediated by G proteins which inhibit adenylyl cyclase
   
0.929
Ppy
Pancreatic prohormone; Pancreatic hormone is synthesized in pancreatic islets of Langerhans and acts as a regulator of pancreatic and gastrointestinal functions
   
 0.926
Tas1r1
Taste receptor type 1 member 1; Putative taste receptor. TAS1R1/TAS1R3 responds to the umami taste stimulus (the taste of monosodium glutamate). Sequence differences within and between species can significantly influence the selectivity and specificity of taste responses
     
 0.925
Pnoc
Prepronociceptin; Nociceptin: Ligand of the opioid receptor-like receptor OPRL1. It may act as a transmitter in the brain by modulating nociceptive and locomotor behavior. May be involved in neuronal differentiation and development
   
 0.925
