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
R05G6.7Probable voltage-dependent anion-selective channel; Forms a channel through the cell membrane that allows diffusion of small hydrophilic molecules (283 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Serine/threonine-protein kinase pink-1, mitochondrial; Protects against mitochondrial dysfunction during cellular stress, potentially by phosphorylating mitochondrial proteins (By similarity). Plays a role in mitophagy; Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family
Mitochondrial import receptor subunit TOM20 homolog; Central component of the receptor complex responsible for the recognition and translocation of cytosolically synthesized mitochondrial preproteins (By similarity). Together with tomm-22 functions as the transit peptide receptor at the surface of the mitochondrion outer membrane and facilitates the movement of preproteins into the translocation pore
Transmembrane GTPase fzo-1; Probable transmembrane GTPase (By similarity). Mediates mitochondrial fusion. Fusion of mitochondria occurs in many cell types and constitutes an important step in mitochondria morphology, which is balanced between fusion and fission (By similarity); Belongs to the TRAFAC class dynamin-like GTPase superfamily. Dynamin/Fzo/YdjA family. Mitofusin subfamily
Mitochondrial Rho GTPase 1; Mitochondrial GTPase involved in mitochondrial trafficking. Probably involved in control of anterograde transport of mitochondria and their subcellular distribution
Autophagy protein 5; Involved in autophagic vesicle formation
Mitochondrial import receptor subunit TOM40 homolog; Channel-forming protein essential for import of protein precursors into mitochondria. Specifically required for nnt-1 accumulation in the mitochondria and may be involved in the secretion of daf-28/insulin from the mitochondria. Required for embryonic and larval development
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase parkin; Functions within a multiprotein E3 ubiquitin ligase complex, catalyzing the covalent attachment of ubiquitin moieties onto substrate proteins; Belongs to the RBR family. Parkin subfamily
Protein lgg-2; Ubiquitin-like modifier involved in autophagy and essential for dauer development and life-span extension. Involved in allophagy, which is an autophagic process in which paternal mitochondria and organelles are degraded during fertilization, and moreover is required for the degradation of lgg-1-positive allophagic autophagosomes in embryos. Through HOPS complex subunit vps-39, tethers lysosomes with autophagosomes to form autolysosomes. Plays a role in the distribution and clearance of germ cell specific P-granules from somatic cells; Belongs to the ATG8 family
ATP synthase subunit alpha, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial membrane ATP synthase (F(1)F(0) ATP synthase or Complex V) produces ATP from ADP in the presence of a proton gradient across the membrane which is generated by electron transport complexes of the respiratory chain. F-type ATPases consist of two structural domains, F(1) - containing the extramembraneous catalytic core, and F(0) - containing the membrane proton channel, linked together by a central stalk and a peripheral stalk. During catalysis, ATP synthesis in the catalytic domain of F(1) is coupled via a rotary mechanism of the [...]
Ubiquitin-like protein ATG12; Ubiquitin-like protein involved in autophagic vesicle formation
