HIK protein (Arabidopsis thaliana) - STRING interaction network
"HIK" - HINKEL 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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
HIKHINKEL; Probable plus end-directed motor protein that functions in a MAP kinase signaling pathway (ANP1-MKK6-MPK4), which is essential for somatic cell cytokinesis, especially for the cell- plate formation and its expansion. Regulates the activity and the localization of ANP1, probably by association through the non- catalytic region of the kinase. Functionally redundant with NACK2 and essential to promote the progression of cytokinesis and for cellularization (formation of the cell plate) during microgametogenesis and megagametogenesis (974 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Syntaxin of plants 111; Involved in cytokinesis. Acts as a cell plate-specific syntaxin, required for the fusion of vesicles at the plane of cell division (310 aa)
Kinesin 5; Kinesin that supports microtubule movement in an ATP- dependent manner and that functions as a minus-end directed motor as well as a plus-end tracking protein. During mitosis, is involved in early spindle assembly. Participates in the capture of antiparallel interpolar microtubules and helps in generating force to coalign microtubules (790 aa)
PLEIADE; Microtubule-associated protein that plays a critical role in organizing the mitotic microtubule array during both early and late mitosis in all plant organs. Essential for the cytokinesis, especially in roots, by maintaining the integrity of the overlapped microtubules in the phragmoplast. Required during root morphogenesis. Needed for giant cell development during root knot nematode infection, where cytokinesis is initiated but not completed (707 aa)
Kinesin family member 4/7/21/27; Kinesin-like motor protein involved in the control of the oriented deposition of cellulose microfibrils (1294 aa)
MITOTIC ARREST-DEFICIENT 2; Required for the execution of the mitotic checkpoint which monitors the process of kinetochore-spindle attachment and delays the onset of anaphase when this process is not complete. It inhibits the activity of the anaphase promoting complex by sequestering CDC20 until all chromosomes are aligned at the metaphase plate (209 aa)
NPK1-related protein kinase 3; Involved in cortical microtubules organization and stabilization by regulating the phosphorylation state of microtubule-associated proteins such as MAP65-1 (651 aa)
Kinesin 1; Kinesin that supports microtubule movement in an ATP- dependent manner and has a minus-end directed polarity. Plays a crucial role in spindle morphogenesis in male Arabidopsis meiosis. In mitosis, is required for normal microtubule accumulation at the spindle poles during prophase and may play a role in spindle assembly during prometaphase (793 aa)
End binding protein 1C; Plant-specific EB1 subtype that functions preferentially at early stages of plant mitosis by regulating spindle positioning and chromosome segregation. Accumulates in the prophase nucleus and is required to maintain spindle bipolarity during premetaphase and/or metaphase and for efficient segregation of chromosomes at anaphase. May play a role in the dynamics of microtubule network in elongating pollen tubes (329 aa)
Topoisomerase II; Control of topological states of DNA by transient breakage and subsequent rejoining of DNA strands. Topoisomerase II makes double-strand breaks (1473 aa)
P-loop containing nucleoside triphosphate hydrolase-like protein; Responsible for microtubule translocation. May be important for the organization of phragmoplast-specific arrays of microtubules (By similarity). Plays an essential role in stabilizing the mitotic spindle (PubMed-17652157). Required during mitotic cytokinesis (PubMed-26745275) (1042 aa)
