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
axl-1Axin-like protein 1; Works in parallel with pry-1 in negatively regulating bar-1 signaling in vulval precursor cells and Q neuroblasts. Shown to have a role in excretory cell development (400 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Beta-catenin/armadillo-related protein 1; Participates in the Wnt signaling pathway which affects cell fate and may regulate the stem cell divisions of seam cells during larval development. Functions as a transcriptional activator but is dependent on the interaction with pop-1. Involved in maintaining lin-39 Hox expression and regulating glr-1 abundance at the synapses. Required for mab-5 expression during Q neuroblast migration and for oxidative stress-induced daf-16 signaling. Has roles in egg laying, vulva precursor cell fate determination, Q neuroblast migration, posterior ectoderm [...]
Late endosomal/lysosomal adaptor, Mapk (MAPK) and mToR (MTOR) activator homolog; Protein C06H2.6 (C06H2.6) mRNA, complete cds
Ragulator complex protein LAMTOR2 homolog; Regulator of the TOR pathway, a signaling cascade that promotes cell growth in response to growth factors, energy levels, and amino acids. May activate the TOR signaling cascade in response to amino acids
Protein-serine O-palmitoleoyltransferase porcupine; Key regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway that mediates lipid modification of Wnt proteins. Acts as a protein-serine O- palmitoleoyltransferase that catalyzes the attachment of palmitoleate, a 16-carbon monounsaturated fatty acid (C16:1), to Wnt proteins (By similarity). Serine palmitoleylation of WNT proteins is required for efficient binding to frizzled receptors (By similarity). Has a role in cell specification, specifically in blastomere signaling. Involved in cytosketetal polarity. Required for the orientation of mitotic spindle [...]
DiSHevelled related; Protein DSH-2 (dsh-2) mRNA, complete cds
Segment polarity protein dishevelled homolog mig-5; Plays a role in the signal transduction pathways mediated by multiple Wnt genes. Functions redundantly with other dishevelled family members throughout development. During embryonic and larval development, controls cell migration and/or cell fate specification of hypodermal cells, hypodermal seam cells, vulval precursor cells and, through distal tip cell migration, somatic gonad precursor cells. In early embryos, regulates the orientation of the mitotic spindle of blastomeres and specifically, along with dsh-2, is required for the cor [...]
Axin-like protein pry-1; Works in parallel with axl-1 in negatively regulating bar-1 signaling in vulval precursor cells and Q neuroblasts. Inhibits Wnt signaling, which affects tissue specific expression of Hox genes, egl-5, lin-39 and mab-5. This in turn affects QR (postembryonic neuroblast) cell migration, vulval cell fate specification, and the development of sensory structures by the seam cell lineage. Has a role in alae V cell patterning, ray formation in the male tail and axon guidance. Does not affect B cell polarity
Glycogen synthase kinase-3; Phosphorylates oma-1, a regulator of the oocyte-to- embryo transition, enabling its degradation. Phosphorylates skn-1, preventing it from accumulating in nuclei and thus inhibiting phase II gene expression in the oxidative stress defense. Involved in mesendoderm specification and mitotic spindle orientation in EMS blastomeres. Thought to be a branch point in these processes as proteins downstream are not required. Negatively regulates Wnt signaling in vulval precursor cells and acts as a Wnt-independent repressor of med-1 and med-2 in the C lineage inhibitin [...]
GOlgi-associated PDZ and Coiled-coil motif protein; Protein GOPC-1, isoform b (gopc-1) mRNA, complete cds
60S ribosomal protein L28; Protein RPL-28 (rpl-28) mRNA, complete cds; Belongs to the eukaryotic ribosomal protein eL28 family
