STRINGSTRING
MEA protein (Arabidopsis thaliana) - STRING interaction network
"MEA" - MEDEA in Arabidopsis thaliana
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

MEAMEDEA; Polycomb group (PcG) protein. Catalytic subunit of some PcG multiprotein complex, which methylates ’Lys-27’ of histone H3, leading to transcriptional repression of the affected target genes. Required to prevent the proliferation of the central cell of the female gametophyte by repressing target genes before fertilization. After fertilization, it probably also regulates the embryo and endosperm proliferation and anteroposterior organization during seed development. PcG proteins act by forming multiprotein complexes, which are required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive [...] (689 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
FIE
FERTILIZATION-INDEPENDENT ENDOSPERM; Polycomb group (PcG) protein. PcG proteins act by forming multiprotein complexes, which are required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of homeotic genes throughout development. PcG proteins are not required to initiate repression, but to maintain it during later stages of development. They probably act via the methylation of histones, rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility. Required to prevent the proliferation of the central cell by repressing unknown target genes before fertilization. Probably also involved in [...] (369 aa)

FIS2
FERTILIZATION INDEPENDENT SEED 2; Polycomb group (PcG) protein. PcG proteins act by forming multiprotein complexes, which are required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of homeotic genes throughout development. PcG proteins are not required to initiate repression, but to maintain it during later stages of development. They probably act via the methylation of histones, rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility. Required to prevent the proliferation of the central cell by repressing unknown target genes before fertilization. Regulates the anteroposterio [...] (755 aa)

MSI1
MULTICOPY SUPRESSOR OF IRA1; Core histone-binding subunit that may target chromatin assembly factors, chromatin remodeling factors and histone deacetylases to their histone substrates in a manner that is regulated by nucleosomal DNA. Component of several complexes which regulate chromatin metabolism. These include the chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF-1) complex, which is required for chromatin assembly following DNA replication and DNA repair, and the fertilization independent seed (FIS) complex, a polycomb group protein complex which is required to maintain the transcriptionally repre [...] (424 aa)

PHE1
PHERES1; Probable transcription factor involved in the development of gametophytes and seeds (279 aa)
     
 
  0.967
MET1
Methyltransferase 1; Maintains chromatin CpG methylation that plays a role in genomic imprinting, regulation of embryogenesis and seed viability. Required for proper patterns of CG DNA methylation in dividing cells. Required for MEA promoter methylation in seeds (1534 aa)
     
 
  0.925
DME
DEMETER; Transcriptional activator involved in gene imprinting. Catalyzes the release of 5-methylcytosine (5-meC) from DNA by a glycosylase/lyase mechanism. Allows the expression of the maternal copy of the imprinted MEA gene before fertilization, possibly by antagonizing or suppressing DNA methylation on target promoter. Probably acts by nicking the MEA promoter. Required for stable reproducible patterns of floral and vegetative development (1987 aa)
           
  0.923
EMF2
EMBRYONIC FLOWER 2; Polycomb group (PcG) protein. Involved in flowering processes by repressing unknown target genes and preventing reproductive development. Participates in polycomb group (PcG) protein complex-mediated (probably in complex with EMF1) silencing of the flower homeotic genes AGAMOUS (AG), PISTILLATA (PI), and APETALA3 (AP3), as well as of some regulatory genes such as ABSCISIC ACID INSENSITIVE3 (ABI3), LONG VEGETATIVE PHASE1 (LOV1), and FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) during vegetative development, by mediating trimethylation of histone 3 lysine 27 on the AG chromatin (H3K27me3) [...] (631 aa)

VRN2
REDUCED VERNALIZATION RESPONSE 2; Polycomb group (PcG) protein. Plays a central role in vernalization by maintaining repressed the homeotic gene FLC, a floral repressor, after a cold treatment. PcG proteins act by forming multiprotein complexes, which are required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of homeotic genes throughout development. PcG proteins are not required to initiate repression, but to maintain it during later stages of development. They probably act via the methylation of histones, rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility. Associates co [...] (440 aa)

SUVH2
SU(VAR)3-9 homolog 2; Histone methyltransferase family member. According to PubMed-15775980, it is required for normal methylation of ’Lys-9’ and ’Lys-27’ of histone H3, ’Lys-20’ of H4, and cytosine, but PubMed-19043555 see no significant effect on histone methylation when the gene is mutated. According to PubMed-19043555, the protein does not bind S-adenosyl-L-methionine and lacks methyltransferase activity. Instead, it may function downstream of DRM2 in RNA-directed DNA methylation, binding to methylated DNA and recruiting DNA-directed RNA polymerase V to chromatin (PubMed-24463519). [...] (651 aa)

FWA
FLOWERING WAGENINGEN; Probable transcription factor involved in the regulation of time of flowering through the photoperiod flowering pathway. May repress FT (686 aa)
