STRINGSTRING
CRX protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"CRX" - Cone-rod homeobox protein in Homo sapiens
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

CRXCone-rod homeobox protein; Transcription factor that binds and transactivates the sequence 5’-TAATC[CA]-3’ which is found upstream of several photoreceptor-specific genes, including the opsin genes. Acts synergistically with other transcription factors, such as NRL, RORB and RAX, to regulate photoreceptor cell-specific gene transcription. Essential for the maintenance of mammalian photoreceptors; Belongs to the paired homeobox family (299 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
NRL
Neural retina-specific leucine zipper protein; Acts as a transcriptional activator which regulates the expression of several rod-specific genes, including RHO and PDE6B. Functions also as a transcriptional coactivator, stimulating transcription mediated by the transcription factor CRX and NR2E3. Binds in a sequence-specific manner to the rhodopsin promoter; Basic leucine zipper proteins (237 aa)
       
 
  0.965
NR2E3
Photoreceptor-specific nuclear receptor; Orphan nuclear receptor of retinal photoreceptor cells. Transcriptional factor that is an activator of rod development and repressor of cone development. Binds the promoter region of a number of rod- and cone-specific genes, including rhodopsin, M- and S-opsin and rod-specific phosphodiesterase beta subunit. Enhances rhodopsin expression. Represses M- and S-cone opsin expression; Nuclear hormone receptors (410 aa)
       
 
  0.947
ATXN7
Ataxin-7; Acts as component of the STAGA transcription coactivator-HAT complex. Mediates the interaction of STAGA complex with the CRX and is involved in CRX-dependent gene activation. Necessary for microtubule cytoskeleton stabilization; Ataxins (945 aa)
       
 
  0.943
RHO
Rhodopsin; Photoreceptor required for image-forming vision at low light intensity. Required for photoreceptor cell viability after birth. Light-induced isomerization of 11-cis to all-trans retinal triggers a conformational change leading to G-protein activation and release of all-trans retinal; Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Opsin subfamily (348 aa)
     
   
  0.884
RAX2
Retina and anterior neural fold homeobox protein 2; May be involved in modulating the expression of photoreceptor specific genes. Binds to the Ret-1 and Bat-1 element within the rhodopsin promoter; PRD class homeoboxes and pseudogenes (184 aa)
       
 
0.882
AIPL1
Aryl-hydrocarbon-interacting protein-like 1; May be important in protein trafficking and/or protein folding and stabilization; FKBP prolyl isomerases (384 aa)
     
   
  0.800
GUCY2D
Retinal guanylyl cyclase 1; Probably plays a specific functional role in the rods and/or cones of photoreceptors. It may be the enzyme involved in the resynthesis of cGMP required for recovery of the dark state after phototransduction; Guanylate cyclase receptors (1103 aa)
     
   
  0.792
FIZ1
Flt3-interacting zinc finger protein 1; May be a transcriptional repressor of NRL function in photoreceptors. Does not repress CRX-mediated transactivation (By similarity); Zinc fingers C2H2-type (496 aa)
       
 
  0.785
RCVRN
Recoverin; Seems to be implicated in the pathway from retinal rod guanylate cyclase to rhodopsin. May be involved in the inhibition of the phosphorylation of rhodopsin in a calcium-dependent manner. The calcium-bound recoverin prolongs the photoresponse; EF-hand domain containing (200 aa)
           
  0.758
CRB1
Protein crumbs homolog 1; Plays a role in photoreceptor morphogenesis in the retina. May maintain cell polarization and adhesion; Belongs to the Crumbs protein family (1406 aa)
           
  0.733
