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

EPXEosinophil peroxidase; Mediates tyrosine nitration of secondary granule proteins in mature resting eosinophils. Shows significant inhibitory activity towards Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv by inducing bacterial fragmentation and lysis; Belongs to the peroxidase family. XPO subfamily (715 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
RNASE3
Eosinophil cationic protein; Cytotoxin and helminthotoxin with low-efficiency ribonuclease activity. Possesses a wide variety of biological activities. Exhibits antibacterial activity, including cytoplasmic membrane depolarization of preferentially Gram-negative, but also Gram-positive strains. Promotes E.coli outer membrane detachment, alteration of the overall cell shape and partial loss of cell content
   
  
 0.906
RNASE2
Non-secretory ribonuclease; This is a non-secretory ribonuclease. It is a pyrimidine specific nuclease with a slight preference for U. Cytotoxin and helminthotoxin. Selectively chemotactic for dendritic cells. Possesses a wide variety of biological activities
   
  
 0.901
PRG2
Bone marrow proteoglycan; Cytotoxin and helminthotoxin. Also induces non-cytolytic histamine release from human basophils. Involved in antiparasitic defense mechanisms and immune hypersensitivity reactions. The proform acts as a proteinase inhibitor, reducing the activity of PAPPA; C-type lectin domain containing
   
 
 0.742
IL5
Interleukin-5; Factor that induces terminal differentiation of late- developing B-cells to immunoglobulin secreting cells; Belongs to the IL-5 family
      
 0.726
RNASE6
Ribonuclease K6; May have a role in host defense; Ribonuclease A family
      
 0.699
CCL11
Eotaxin; In response to the presence of allergens, this protein directly promotes the accumulation of eosinophils, a prominent feature of allergic inflammatory reactions. Binds to CCR3; Chemokine ligands
      
 0.669
APELA
Apelin receptor early endogenous ligand; Hormone required for endoderm differentiation and heart morphogenesis during early development and for the adult cardiovascular system development by acting as a ligand for the apelin receptor (APLNR). Drives internalization of the apelin receptor. Acts as a motogen by promoting endoderm and mesendoderm cell migration during gastrulation by binding and activating the apelin receptor (By similarity); Belongs to the Elabela/Toddler family
      
 0.669
GADD45GIP1
Growth arrest and DNA damage-inducible proteins-interacting protein 1; Acts as a negative regulator of G1 to S cell cycle phase progression by inhibiting cyclin-dependent kinases. Inhibitory effects are additive with GADD45 proteins but occurs also in the absence of GADD45 proteins. Acts as a repressor of the orphan nuclear receptor NR4A1 by inhibiting AB domain-mediated transcriptional activity. May be involved in the hormone-mediated regulation of NR4A1 transcriptional activity. May play a role in mitochondrial protein synthesis
      
 0.668
FCER1A
High affinity immunoglobulin epsilon receptor subunit alpha; Binds to the Fc region of immunoglobulins epsilon. High affinity receptor. Responsible for initiating the allergic response. Binding of allergen to receptor-bound IgE leads to cell activation and the release of mediators (such as histamine) responsible for the manifestations of allergy. The same receptor also induces the secretion of important lymphokines; Immunoglobulin like domain containing
   
  
 0.665
CCR3
C-C chemokine receptor type 3; Receptor for a C-C type chemokine. Binds to eotaxin, eotaxin-3, MCP-3, MCP-4, RANTES and MIP-1 delta. Subsequently transduces a signal by increasing the intracellular calcium ions level. Alternative coreceptor with CD4 for HIV-1 infection
