STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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

PDGFAPlatelet-derived growth factor subunit A preproprotein ; Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family (198 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
PDGFC
Platelet-derived growth factor C; Growth factor that plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell migration, survival and chemotaxis. Potent mitogen and chemoattractant for cells of mesenchymal origin. Required for normal skeleton formation during embryonic development. Required for normal skin morphogenesis during embryonic development. Plays an important role in wound healing, in angiogenesis and blood vessel development (By similarity)
     
 0.984
PDGFRA
Platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha; Tyrosine-protein kinase that acts as cell-surface receptor for PDGFA, PDGFB and PDGFC and plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, survival and chemotaxis. Depending on the context, promotes or inhibits cell proliferation and cell migration. Plays an important role in the differentiation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells. Required for normal skeleton development. Required for normal development of the gastrointestinal tract. Plays a role in cell migration and chemotaxis in wound he [...]

PDGFD
Gallus gallus platelet derived growth factor D (PDGFD), mRNA; Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family
     
 0.981
PDGFRB
Platelet-derived growth factor receptor, beta polypeptide; Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. CSF-1/PDGF receptor subfamily
    
 0.979
VEGFA
Vascular endothelial growth factor A; Growth factor active in angiogenesis, vasculogenesis and endothelial cell growth. Induces endothelial cell proliferation, promotes cell migration, inhibits apoptosis and induces permeabilization of blood vessels. Binds to the FLT1/VEGFR1 and KDR/VEGFR2 receptors, heparan sulfate and heparin (By similarity)
    
 0.954
VEGFC
Vascular endothelial growth factor C
    
 0.945
FN1
Fibronectin; Gallus gallus fibronectin 1 (FN1), mRNA
    
 0.940
EGF
Pro-epidermal growth factor; EGF stimulates the growth of various epidermal and epithelial tissues in vivo and in vitro and of some fibroblasts in cell culture. Magnesiotropic hormone that stimulates magnesium reabsorption in the renal distal convoluted tubule via engagement of EGFR and activation of the magnesium channel TRPM6
    
 0.939
IGF1
Insulin-like growth factor I; The insulin-like growth factors, isolated from plasma, are structurally and functionally related to insulin but have a much higher growth-promoting activity. Acts as a ligand for IGF1R. Binds to the alpha subunit of IGF1R, leading to the activation of the intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity which autophosphorylates tyrosine residues in the beta subunit thus initiatiating a cascade of down-stream signaling events leading to activation of the PI3K- AKT/PKB and the Ras-MAPK pathways. Binds to integrins. Its binding to integrins and subsequent ternary complex f [...]
