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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
efn-2Eph(F)riN; Protein EFN-2 (efn-2) mRNA, complete cds; Belongs to the ephrin family (218 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ephrin receptor 1; Receptor for members of the ephrin family (By similarity). Involved in interactions between neuronal substrate cells and a migrating epithelial sheet in head epidermis morphogenesis. Also required for cell movements following gastrulation and during ventral closure of the epidermis. Phosphorylates phosphatase daf-18/PTEN which probably promotes daf-18 degradation. By inactivating daf-18, regulates positively insulin-like daf-2 signaling cascade. Involved in axon guidance of SDQL neurons during neurogenesis. Regulates oocyte maturation; Belongs to the protein kinase s [...]
NCK (Non-Catalytic region of tyrosine Kinase) adaptor protein family; Protein NCK-1, isoform a
Tyrosine protein-kinase src-1; Non-receptor tyrosine-protein kinase which plays a role in endoderm development by controlling spindle orientation in EMS blastomere, probably downstream of receptor mes-1. Also involved in embryonic body morphogenesis, especially in the formation of the pharynx and the intestine. May be dispensable for pharyngeal muscle organization in the adult. Probably phosphorylates netrin receptor unc-5, to regulate distal tip cell (DTC) migration during gonad development and in axon repulsion. Plays a role in the migration of the QR neuroblast, a precursor of the A [...]
VAB-2; Protein VAB-2 (vab-2) mRNA, complete cds; Belongs to the ephrin family
Eph(F)riN; Protein EFN-3 (efn-3) mRNA, complete cds; Belongs to the ephrin family
Ras-related protein ced-10; Required in engulfing to control the phagocytosis of apoptotic cell corpses. Required in embryonic development for the correct positioning and orientation of the mitotic spindles and division planes in blastomere cells. Involved in hypodermal cell fusion, together with pak-1 and cdc-42, leading to embryonic body elongation, which involves dramatic cytoskeletal reorganization. Ced-2 and ced-5 function to activate ced-10 in a GTPase signaling pathway that controls the polarized extension of cell surfaces. Plays a redundant role with mig-2 in dorsal axonal guid [...]
PIX (PAK (p21-activated kinase) Interacting eXchange factor) homolog; Protein PIX-1, isoform a
Serine/threonine-protein kinase pak-1; Required for hypodermal cell fusion, together with cdc- 42 and ced-10, leading to embryonic body elongation, which involves dramatic cytoskeletal reorganization. Plays a redundant role with max-2 in dorsal axonal guidance in ventral cord commissural motoneurons and in P neuroblast migration. Acts probably downstream of Rho GTPases mig-2 and ced- 10 to regulate these 2 processes. Involved in orientating axonal growth of HSN neurons. During gonad morphogenesis and probably in association with pix-1 and git-1, involved in the migration of distal tip [...]
Ras-related protein rac-2; During gonad morphogenesis, plays a role in distal tip cell (DTC)-mediated guidance of gonad elongation
Myosin regulatory light chain; Regulates myosin II activity and organization during embryo elongation. May be involved in the organization of mlc-5 into bundles. Required maternally for cytokinesis during meiosis and mitosis in the early embryo and for the establishment of embryonic anterior-posterior polarity
