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
sdn-1Probable syndecan; Cell surface proteoglycan that bears heparan sulfate (By similarity). Required for correct mitotic spindle orientation of the ABar blastomere division plane and this may be through modulation of astral microtubule array, and in association with the wnt-signaling proteins mig-5 and dsh-2. Involved in the migration of AQR and PQR neurons, which descend from the Q neuroblasts (288 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GlyPicaN; Protein GPN-1 (gpn-1) mRNA, complete cds; Belongs to the glypican family
Heparan-sulfate 6-O-sulfotransferase; 6-O-sulfation enzyme which catalyzes the transfer of sulfate from 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate (PAPS) to position 6 of the N-sulfoglucosamine residue (GlcNS) of heparan sulfate
AGRin (Synaptic protein) homolog family member; Protein AGR-1 (agr-1) mRNA, complete cds
Basement membrane proteoglycan; Probable structural role in myofilament assembly and/or attachment of the myofilament lattice to the cell membrane. May be an extracellular anchor for integrin receptors in body wall muscles and myoepithelial sheath cells. During the formation of neuromuscular junctions at the larval stage, negatively regulates membrane protrusion from body wall muscles, probably downstream of the integrin complex formed by pat-2 and pat-3. Involved in ovulation
Heparan SulphoTransferase; Protein HST-3.1 (hst-3.1) mRNA, complete cds
Heparan sulfate 2-O-sulfotransferase hst-2; Catalyzes the transfer of sulfate to the C2-position of selected hexuronic acid residues within the maturing heparan sulfate (HS). Involved in cell adhesion and guidance by specifically modifying proteoglycans in the extracellular matrix and on the cell surface that are essential for axon migrations
Bifunctional heparan sulfate N-deacetylase/N-sulfotransferase 1; Essential bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes both the N- deacetylation and the N-sulfation of glucosamine (GlcNAc) of the glycosaminoglycan in heparan sulfate. Modifies the GlcNAc-GlcA disaccharide repeating sugar backbone to make N-sulfated heparosan, a prerequisite substrate for later modifications in heparin biosynthesis (Probable)
Xylosyltransferase sqv-6; Catalyzes the first step in biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycan. Transfers D-xylose from UDP-D-xylose to specific serine residues of the core protein. Initial enzyme in the biosynthesis of chondroitin sulfate and dermatan sulfate proteoglycans in fibroblasts and chondrocytes. Required for vulval morphogenesis and zygotic cytokinesis, suggesting that glycosaminoglycans play a central role in vulval morphogenesis
Beta-1,3-galactosyltransferase sqv-2; Beta-1,3-galactosyltransferase that transfers galactose from UDP-galactose to substrates with a terminal beta-linked galactose residue. Required for vulval morphogenesis and zygotic cytokinesis, suggesting that glycosaminoglycans play a central role in vulval morphogenesis
Protein eva-1; Acts as a receptor for slt-1. Required for the guidance of the AVM pioneer axon to the ventral nerve cord. Acts as a unc-40 coreceptor to enhance the sensitivity of unc-40 to the madd-4 midline guidance cue to guide muscle arm extensions (muscle arms) and AVM mechanosensory axons towards the dorsoventral midline; Belongs to the EVA1 family
