Groups of genes that are frequently observed in each other's genomic neighborhood.
Known metabolic pathways, protein complexes, signal transduction pathways, etc ... from curated databases.
Genes that are sometimes fused into single open reading frames.
STRING allows inspection of the interaction evidence for any given network. Choose any of the viewers above (disabled if not applicable in your 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.
colored nodes: query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes: second shell of interactors
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.

Uncharacterized protein (367 aa)
Predicted Functional Partners:
Targeting protein for Xklp2-like protein; Microtubule-associated protein (MAP) that regulates the orientation of interphase cortical microtubules. Binds to, bundles and stabilizes microtubules. Required for the organization and stability of cortical microtubules in hypocotyls. Required for normal hypocotyl cell elongation. Acts as negative regulator of hypocotyl cell elongation in the light (338 aa)
TPX2 (targeting protein for Xklp2) protein family; Microtubule-associated protein (MAP) that regulates the orientation of interphase cortical microtubules (437 aa)
Microtubule-associated protein 18; May be involved in intracellular signaling through interaction with PtdInsPs and calmodulin (CaM); may keep PtdInsPs attached to the plasma membrane until Ca(2+)-CaM reaches a competitive concentration subsequent to an increase triggered by a stimulus, thus leading to PtdInsPs release and subsequent activation of InsPs-dependent signaling cascade (Probable). Binds to microtubules and inhibits tubulin polymerization. Regulates directional cell growth and cortical microtubule organization by destabilizing microtubules (e.g. in cotyledon pavement cells) [...] (168 aa)
WAVE-DAMPENED 2; Microtubule-associated protein (MAP) that regulates the orientation of interphase cortical microtubules. Able to bundle microtubules in vitro. Modulates both rotational polarity and anisotropic cell expansion during organ growth. Promotes clockwise root and etiolated hypocotyls coiling, clockwise leaf curling, but left-handed petiole twisting (202 aa)
Tropine dehydrogenase (307 aa)
Bifunctional inhibitor/lipid-transfer protein/seed storage 2S albumin-like protein (102 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (270 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (263 aa)
Alpha/beta-hydrolase-like protein; Acylhydrolase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phospholipids at the sn-1 position (423 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (72 aa)
