FDM4 protein (Arabidopsis thaliana) - STRING interaction network
"FDM4" - Factor of DNA methylation 4 in Arabidopsis thaliana
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
FDM4Factor of DNA methylation 4; Acts in association with FDM3 and FDM5 for RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM) (736 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SUPPRESSOR OF GENE SILENCING 3; Required for post-transcriptional gene silencing and natural virus resistance. May bind nucleic acids and is essential for the biogenesis of trans-acting siRNAs but is not required for silencing induced by IR-PTGS. Involved in the juvenile-to-adult transition regulation. In case of begomoviruses infection, it is targeted by the viral protein V2 leading to suppression of post- transcriptional gene silencing (625 aa)
DNA-directed RNA polymerase II subunit RPB11 (146 aa)
40s ribosomal protein SA; Required for the assembly and/or stability of the 40S ribosomal subunit. Required for the processing of the 20S rRNA- precursor to mature 18S rRNA in a late step of the maturation of 40S ribosomal subunits (298 aa)
ARGONAUTE 6; Involved in transcriptional gene silencing (TGS). Component of the RISC complex that associate with the small interfering RNA (siRNA) pathway involved in direct cytosine methylation at endogenous DNA repeats. Required for the accumulation of specific siRNAs derived from transgene and heterochromatin-related endogenous loci. Involved in RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM) at specific endogenous loci. Probably not required for the accumulation of siRNAs derived from transgene inverted repeats that induce post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS). Associates mainly with smal [...] (878 aa)
ARGONAUTE 9; Involved in RNA-mediated post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS). Main component of the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) that binds to a short guide RNA such as a microRNA (miRNA) or small interfering RNA (siRNA). RISC uses the mature miRNA or siRNA as a guide for slicer-directed cleavage of homologous mRNAs to repress gene expression. Associates preferentially with small RNAs of 24 nucleotide in length with a 5’ terminal adenosine. Interacts with 24 nucleotide sRNAs derived from transposable elements (TEs). Required to silence pericentrometric-located TEs in female [...] (896 aa)
ARGONAUTE 4; Together with RDM3, required for transcriptional gene silencing (TGS) by DNA methylation and repressive histone modifications (H3K9me2) of several chromatin loci (PubMed-21738482). Component of the RISC complex that associate with the small interfering RNA (siRNA) pathway involved in direct cytosine methylation at endogenous DNA repeats. Forms a AGO4/NRPE1/siRNA complex in cajal body, facilitating its function in RNA-directed gene silencing of target loci. Required for CpNpG and asymmetric DNA methylation as well as histone H3 ’Lys-9’ methylation (H3K9me) at SUP and SN1 lo [...] (924 aa)
RNA-DIRECTED DNA METHYLATION 1; Regulator of RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM). Binds to single-stranded methyl DNA. Involved in the assembly of RNA polymerase V (Pol V) transcription initiation or elongation complexes at the chromatin, as a component of the DDR complex (163 aa)
Chromatin remodeling 38; Probable chromatin remodeling factor. Required for the initial establishment of DNA methylation and for accumulation of 24-nt siRNAs. May act on RNA templates by remodeling ribonucleoprotein structures and thereby influencing the availability of the RNA to polymerases (1256 aa)
