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

Gene Fusion
falFalten, isoform B; Falten (Fal) is a protein with potential GTPase activity. It is expressed in the mesoderm and is elevated in embryos lacking how function (368 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mahjong (Mahj) is involved in regulation of cell cycle, proliferation and cellular fitness. Epithelial cells lacking Mahj function are out competed by their wild type neighbors; Belongs to the VPRBP/DCAF1 family
Deoxynucleoside kinase; Deoxyribonucleoside kinase that has a broad specificity phosphorylating thymidine, 2'-deoxyriboadenosine, 2'- deoxyribocytidine and 2'-deoxyriboguanosine. Specificity is higher for pyrimidine nucleosides. Several anti-viral and anti-cancer nucleoside analogs are also efficiently phosphorylated
annotation not available
Ribonuclease H2 subunit A; Catalytic subunit of RNase HII, an endonuclease that specifically degrades the RNA of RNA:DNA hybrids. Participates in DNA replication, possibly by mediating the removal of lagging- strand Okazaki fragment RNA primers during DNA replication. Mediates the excision of single ribonucleotides from DNA:RNA duplexes (By similarity)
Cullin 4 is the molecular scaffold for the CRL4 E3 ubiquitin ligase complex, which catalyzes the ubiquitylation and subsequent destruction of proteins that function in cell growth and proliferation as well as transcription, replication and repair of the genome; Belongs to the cullin family
Piccolo encodes the Ddb1 protein, which functions to recruit substrate receptors to Cul4-based E3 ubiquitin ligase complexes, which catalyze the ubiquitylation and subsequent destruction of proteins that function in cell growth and proliferation as well as transcription, replication and repair of the genome
Serine protease gd; Component of the extracellular signaling pathway that establishes the dorsal-ventral pathway of the embryo. Three proteases; ndl, gd and snk process easter to create active easter. Active easter defines cell identities along the dorsal-ventral continuum by activating the spz ligand for the Tl receptor in the ventral region of the embryo
LEM domain-containing protein Bocksbeutel; Inner nuclear membrane protein. May have a role in maintaining the structural integrity of the nuclear lamina. During pupal development, plays essential and redundant functions with the other LEM domain proteins; MAN1 and Ote. Also has a redundant but important role with Ote in larval development
annotation not available
Cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk1) is a catalytic protein kinase subunit that can only become active after association with either CycA, CycB or CycB3. The protein kinase activities of these complexes (CycA-Cdk1, CycB-Cdk1, CycB3-Cdk1) control important aspects of progression through the cell cycle. Functionally, the different Cdk1 complexes are partially redundant. They phosphorylate hundreds of target proteins and are most important for progression into and through mitotic and meiotic M phases; Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CDC2/CDKX subfamily
