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:
a 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
hpk-1Homeodomain-interacting protein kinase 1; Serine/threonine-protein kinase required in the somatic gonadal cells to regulate germline proliferation during larval development and in adulthood. Plays a role in the development/differentiation of gonadal distal tip cells. Required for normal lifespan in a pha-4 and mxl-2- dependent manner. Also contributes to survival following heat or oxidative stress. Prevents sumoylation and inactivation of heat shock transcription factor hsf-1 which enhances hsf-1-dependent transcriptional induction of chaperones in response to heat shock. Also required [...] (846 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
BROther (Drosophila tx factor partner) homolog.
Runt domain-containing protein.
Sentrin-specific protease; Protease that deconjugates smo-1 from targeted proteins and may catalyze the processing of smo-1 to its mature form.
Small ubiquitin-related modifier; Ubiquitin-like protein which can be covalently attached to target lysines as a monomer. Does not seem to be involved in protein degradation and may function as an antagonist of ubiquitin in the degradation process. Plays a role in a number of cellular processes such as nuclear transport, DNA replication and repair, mitosis and signal transduction. Covalent attachment to its substrates requires prior activation by the E1 complex aos-1-uba-2 and linkage to the E2 enzyme ubc-9, and can be promoted by an E3 ligase such as gei-17. Required for embryonic dev [...]
E3 SUMO-protein ligase gei-17; Functions as an E3-type smo-1 ligase. Mediates smo-1 conjugation to air-2 in vitro and is required for proper chromosome alignment. In the early embryo, specifically suppresses checkpoint activation in response to DNA damage, maybe by promoting mus-101 sumoylation. In embryos, plays a role in determining telomere localization in the nucleus.
WD_REPEATS_REGION domain-containing protein.
WD_REPEATS_REGION domain-containing protein.
DeHydrogenases, Short chain.
SUMO-conjugating enzyme UBC9; Accepts the ubiquitin-like protein smo-1 from the aos-1-uba-2 E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins with the help of an E3 ligase such as gei-17. Required to sumoylate the ETS transcription factor lin-1 and the Polycomb protein sop-2. Required for embryonic development, fertility, vulval morphogenesis and inhibition of vulval cell fates. Belongs to the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family.
Transcription factor unc-37; Transcriptional corepressor that functions with the neural specificity gene unc-4 to govern motor neuron identity. May function with transcription factor mls-1 to promote uterine muscle specification and formation.
