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

Gene Fusion
PEX17Membrane peroxin of the peroxisomal importomer complex; complex facilitates the import of peroxisomal matrix proteins; required for peroxisome biogenesis (199 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
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 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 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
Peroxisome biogenesis factor 10; Peroxisomal membrane E3 ubiquitin ligase; required for for Ubc4p-dependent Pex5p ubiquitination and peroxisomal matrix protein import; contains zinc-binding RING domain; mutations in human homolog cause various peroxisomal disorders
Peroxisomal biogenesis factor 8; Intraperoxisomal organizer of the peroxisomal import machinery; organizes the formation of the importomer complex, bridging the docking complex with the RING finger complex; tightly associated with the lumenal face of the peroxisomal membrane; essential for peroxisome biogenesis; binds PTS1-signal receptor Pex5p, and PTS2-signal receptor Pex7p
Peroxisomal biogenesis factor 2; RING-finger peroxin and E3 ubiquitin ligase; peroxisomal membrane protein with a C-terminal zinc-binding RING domain, forms translocation subcomplex with Pex10p and Pex12p which functions in peroxisomal matrix protein import
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
Chaperone and import receptor for newly-synthesized class I PMPs; binds peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs) in the cytoplasm and delivers them to the peroxisome for subsequent insertion into the peroxisomal membrane; interacts with Myo2p and contributes to peroxisome partitioning
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)
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
