STRING protein interaction 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.
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
PEX18Peroxin; required for targeting of peroxisomal matrix proteins containing PTS2; interacts with Pex7p; partially redundant with Pex21p; primarily responsible for peroxisomal import during growth on oleate, and expression is induced during oleate growth (283 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Peroxisomal signal receptor for peroxisomal matrix proteins; recognizes the N-terminal nonapeptide signal (PTS2); WD repeat protein; defects in human homolog cause lethal rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP)
Peroxin required for peroxisomal matrix protein targeting; acts on proteins containing the PTS2 targeting sequence; interacts with Pex7p; constitutively expressed; partially redundant with Pex18p; required for import of the Gpd1p-Pnc1p heterodimer in which only Gpd1p has a peroxisomal targeting signal; relative distribution to cytoplasmic foci increases upon DNA replication stress; Belongs to the peroxin-21 family
Peroxisomal membrane protein PAS20; Peroxisomal importomer complex component; integral peroxisomal membrane protein required for docking and translocation of peroxisomal matrix proteins; interacts with the PTS1 signal recognition factor Pex5p and the PTS2 signal recognition factor Pex7p; forms a complex with Pex14p and Pex17p; human homolog PEX13 complements yeast null mutant; Belongs to the peroxin-13 family
Peroxisomal membrane protein PEX14; Central component of the peroxisomal importomer complex; peroxisomal protein import machinery docking complex component; interacts with both PTS1 (Pex5p) and PTS2 (Pex7p) peroxisomal matrix protein signal recognition factors and membrane receptor Pex13p
Peroxisomal membrane signal receptor for peroxisomal matrix proteins; receptor for the C-terminal tripeptide signal sequence (PTS1) of peroxisomal matrix proteins; required for peroxisomal matrix protein import; also proposed to have PTS1-receptor independent functions
3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase, peroxisomal; 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase with broad chain length specificity; cleaves 3-ketoacyl-CoA into acyl-CoA and acetyl-CoA during beta-oxidation of fatty acids
Membrane peroxin of the peroxisomal importomer complex; complex facilitates the import of peroxisomal matrix proteins; required for peroxisome biogenesis
Proteasome core particle subunit beta 6; Beta 6 subunit of the 20S proteasome
Peroxisome assembly protein 12; C3HC4-type RING-finger peroxin and E3 ubiquitin ligase; required for peroxisome biogenesis and peroxisomal matrix protein import; forms translocation subcomplex with Pex2p and Pex10p; mutations in human homolog cause peroxisomal disorder; Belongs to the pex2/pex10/pex12 family
Peroxisomal ATPase PEX6; AAA-peroxin; heterodimerizes with AAA-peroxin Pex1p and participates in the recycling of peroxisomal signal receptor Pex5p from the peroxisomal membrane to the cystosol; mutations in human PEX6 can lead to severe peroxisomal disorders and early death
