N protein (fruit fly) - STRING interaction network
Notch in Drosophila melanogaster
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
NNotch; Signaling protein, which regulates, with both positive and negative signals, the differentiation of at least central and peripheral nervous system and eye, wing disk, oogenesis, segmental appendages such as antennae and legs, and muscles, through lateral inhibition or induction. Functions as a receptor for membrane- bound ligands Delta and Serrate to regulate cell-fate determination. Upon ligand activation, and releasing from the cell membrane, the Notch intracellular domain (NICD) forms a transcriptional activator complex with Su(H) (Suppressor of hairless) and activates genes [...] (2703 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Suppressor of Hairless; Transcriptional regulator that plays a central role in Notch signaling, a signaling pathway involved in cell-cell communication that regulates a broad spectrum of cell-fate determinations. Binds directly the 5’-GTGRGAR-3’ DNA consensus sequence, which is present in the regulatory region of several genes. Required for neurogenesis in imaginal disks. Acts as a transcriptional repressor when it is not associated with Notch proteins. When associated with some Notch protein, it acts as a transcriptional activator that activates transcription of Notch target genes. Sp [...] (594 aa)
Presenilin; Probable catalytic subunit of the gamma-secretase complex, an endoprotease complex that catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of integral membrane proteins such as Notch receptor. Required for S3 cleavage of Notch, which releases activated Notch protein from the cell membrane. Involved in the patterning of the optic lobes (541 aa)
Kuzbanian (1256 aa)
Numb; Required in determination of cell fate during sensory organ formation in embryos. Functions in nuclei and seems to interact with nucleic acids (556 aa)
Deltex; Regulator of Notch signaling, a signaling pathway involved in cell-cell communications that regulates a broad spectrum of cell-fate determinations. Mainly acts as a positive regulator of Notch, but it may also act as a negative regulator, depending on the developmental and cell context. Mediates the antineural activity of Notch. May function as a ubiquitin ligase protein in the Notch pathway (738 aa)
Fringe; Glycosyltransferase involved in the elongation of O- linked ligands to activate Notch signaling. Possesses fucose- specific beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity; extends the O-linked fucose on the Notch EGF repeats. Boundary- specific cell-signaling molecule that is responsible for dorsal- ventral cell interactions during wing development (412 aa)
Wingless; Binds as a ligand to a family of frizzled seven- transmembrane receptors and acts through a cascade of genes on the nucleus. Segment polarity protein. May be a growth factor. Acts on neighboring cells to regulate at least one gene, the homeobox segmentation gene engrailed. Wg signal represses arm phosphorylation. Wg signaling operates by inactivating the sgg repression of engrailed autoactivation. Wg and Wnt2 have a role in the developing trachea and together are responsible for all dorsal trunk formation. Wg also acts in the developing epidermis. Acts as a morphogen, and dif [...] (468 aa)
Nicastrin; Essential subunit of the gamma-secretase complex, an endoprotease complex that catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of integral membrane proteins such as Notch. It probably represents a stabilizing cofactor required for the assembly of the gamma- secretase complex (695 aa)
Ribosomal protein S27A; Ubiquitin exists either covalently attached to another protein, or free (unanchored). When covalently bound, it is conjugated to target proteins via an isopeptide bond either as a monomer (monoubiquitin), a polymer linked via different Lys residues of the ubiquitin (polyubiquitin chains) or a linear polymer linked via the initiator Met of the ubiquitin (linear polyubiquitin chains). Polyubiquitin chains, when attached to a target protein, have different functions depending on the Lys residue of the ubiquitin that is linked- Lys-48-linked is involved in protein d [...] (156 aa)
Delta; Acts as a ligand for Notch (N) receptor. Essential for proper differentiation of ectoderm. Dl is required for the correct separation of neural and epidermal cell lineages. Fringe (fng) acts in the Golgi to determine the type of O-linked fucose on the EGF modules in N, altering the ability of N to bind with Delta (Dl). O-fut1 also has a role in modulating the interaction (833 aa)
