STRINGSTRING
Orco protein (fruit fly) - STRING interaction network
"Orco" - Odorant receptor coreceptor in Drosophila melanogaster
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

OrcoOdorant receptor coreceptor; Odorant coreceptor which complexes with conventional odorant receptors (ORs) to form odorant-sensing units, providing sensitive and prolonged odorant signaling and calcium permeability. Orco is a universal and integral part of the functional odorant receptor, involved in the dendritic localization of other olfactory receptors. Expression of Orco alone leads to formation of rapid and transient ion channels not directly responding to odorants, but directly activated by intracellular cAMP or cGMP. Snmp, Or67d and lush act in concert to capture fatty-acid-deriv [...] (486 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ir8a
Ionotropic receptor 8a is a member of the Ionotropic Receptor (IR) family of variant ionotropic glutamate receptors. It functions as a co-receptor together with ligand-specific IRs (in a probable heterotetrameric complex) to detect diverse organic acids; Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family (936 aa)

Or22a
Odorant receptor 22a; Odorant receptor which mediates acceptance or avoidance behavior, depending on its substrates. The odorant receptor repertoire encodes a large collection of odor stimuli that vary widely in identity, intensity, and duration. Involved in the behavioral responses ethyl butyrate and to esters in more general. Complexes with Orco to form odorant-sensing units, providing sensitive and prolonged odorant signaling and calcium permeability. They are necessary and sufficient to promote functional reconstitution of odor-evoked signaling in sensory neurons that normally resp [...] (397 aa)

Ir25a
Ionotropic receptor 25a; Integral part of various neural sensory systems in the antenna that provide the neural basis for the response to environmental changes in temperature (thermosensation), humidity (hygrosensation) and odor detection. Required for odor-evoked electrophysiological responses in multiple neuron classes in the antenna and is likely to function as part of an olfactory receptor complex with Ir76a and Ir76b. Together with Ir21a and Ir93a, mediates the response of the larval dorsal organ cool cells, a trio of cool-responsive neurons, to cooling and is required for cool av [...] (947 aa)

Snmp1
Sensory neuron membrane protein 1; Plays an olfactory role that is not restricted to pheromone sensitivity. Has a role in detection and signal transduction of the fatty-acid-derived male pheromone 11-cis vaccenyl acetate (cVA). Not required for sensitivity to general odorants. Acts in concert with Or67d and lush to capture cVA molecules on the surface of Or67d expressing olfactory dendrites and facilitate their transfer to the odorant-receptor Orco complex. Essential for the electrophysiological responses of these olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) to cVA. Not required for the developmen [...] (551 aa)

Or43a
Odorant receptor 43a; Odorant receptor which mediates acceptance or avoidance behavior, depending on its substrates. The odorant receptor repertoire encodes a large collection of odor stimuli that vary widely in identity, intensity, and duration. Complexes with Orco to form odorant-sensing units, providing sensitive and prolonged odorant signaling and calcium permeability. They are necessary and sufficient to promote functional reconstitution of odor-evoked signaling in sensory neurons that normally respond only to carbon dioxide. Involved in the behavioral responses to acetophenone, b [...] (376 aa)

Aats-gly
Glycyl-tRNA synthetase, isoform B; ATP binding; glycine-tRNA ligase activity. It is involved in the biological process described with- glycyl-tRNA aminoacylation; dendrite morphogenesis (765 aa)

Gr21a
Gustatory and odorant receptor 21a; Gustatory and odorant receptor which mediates acceptance or avoidance behavior, depending on its substrates. Gr21a and Gr63a together are sufficient for carbon dioxide detection and avoidance behavior. It is possible that the CO(2) receptors Gr63a and Gr21a activate the TRPC channels through Galpha49B and Plc21C. This innate olfactory avoidance behavior can be inhibited by inhibitory interactions of the odors such as 1-hexanol and 2,3- butanedione with Gr21a and Gr63a; Belongs to the insect chemoreceptor superfamily. Gustatory receptor (GR) family. G [...] (447 aa)

Gr63a
Gustatory and odorant receptor 63a; Gustatory and odorant receptor which mediates acceptance or avoidance behavior, depending on its substrates. Gr21a and Gr63a together are sufficient for carbon dioxide detection and avoidance behavior. It is possible that the CO(2) receptors Gr63a and Gr21a activate the TRPC channels through Galpha49B and Plc21C. This innate olfactory avoidance behavior can be inhibited by inhibitory interactions of the odors such as 1-hexanol and 2,3- butanedione with Gr21a and Gr63a (489 aa)

Ir76b
Ionotropic receptor 76b is a member of the Ionotropic Receptor (IR) family of variant ionotropic glutamate receptors. It functions in chemosensory detection of various amines and salt, as a probable co-receptor subunit (636 aa)

Or67d
Odorant receptor 67d; Plays a role in detection and sensitivity to pheromones and signal transduction of the fatty-acid-derived male pheromone 11-cis vaccenyl acetate (cVA). Acts in concert with Snmp and lush to capture cVA molecules on the surface of Or67d expressing olfactory dendrites and facilitate their transfer to the odorant- receptor Orco complex. Necessary to mediate behavioral responses to cVA by regulating both male and female mating behavior. Activation of Or67d neurons by cVA inhibits courtship of other males, whereas in females their activation promotes receptivity to oth [...] (391 aa)
