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
pou2f1POU domain, class 2, transcription factor 1; Transcription factor that binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3') and activates the promoters of the genes for some small nuclear RNAs (snRNA) and histone H2B. Acts downstream of Notch signaling during radial glia formation. Regulates apoptosis, possibly via an FGF-signaling pathway (By similarity) (539 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Transcription factor Sox-2; Transcriptional activator. Functions as a switch in neuronal development, participating in the differentiation of embryonic neuroectodermal cells into neural tissues by making the ectodermal cells responsive to FGF-neuralizing signals (By similarity). Downstream SRRT target that mediates the promotion of neural stem cell self-renewal (By similarity)
Activating transcription factor 2
Uncharacterized protein; Sp1 transcription factor
GATA binding protein 3
Uncharacterized protein; YY1 transcription factor
POU class 2 associating factor 1
Forkhead box protein A1; Probable transcription factor
Estrogen receptor; The steroid hormones and their receptors are involved in the regulation of eukaryotic gene expression and affect cellular proliferation and differentiation in target tissues
Forkhead box protein A4; Transcriptional repressor involved in embryonic nervous system development. Plays a role in the induction and patterning of the anterior-posterior neural axis. Involved in the establishment of floor plate differentiation from neural plate cells during gastrulation. Binds the anf1 promoter sequence to restrict expression of anf1 to the anterior of the neural plate, thereby patterning the forebrain. Can bind to the HNF-3-alpha DNA target sequence. Cooperates with t/bra in a dose-dependent manner to specify dorsal mesoderm formation, including notochord. May be in [...]
TATA-box-binding protein; General transcription factor that functions at the core of the DNA-binding multiprotein factor TFIID. Binding of TFIID to the TATA box is the initial transcriptional step of the pre- initiation complex (PIC), playing a role in the activation of eukaryotic genes transcribed by RNA polymerase II. Members of the TBP family are differentially required to regulate transcription and development during early embryogenesis (By similarity). Binds to the promoters of select genes
