STRINGSTRING
DLX2 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"DLX2" - Homeobox protein DLX-2 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

DLX2Homeobox protein DLX-2; Acts as a transcriptional activator. Plays a role in terminal differentiation of interneurons, such as amacrine and bipolar cells in the developing retina. Likely to play a regulatory role in the development of the ventral forebrain. May play a role in craniofacial patterning and morphogenesis; NKL subclass homeoboxes and pseudogenes (328 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
IRX1
Iroquois-class homeodomain protein IRX-1; TALE class homeoboxes and pseudogenes (480 aa)
       
 
  0.789
ASCL1
Achaete-scute homolog 1; Transcription factor that plays a key role in neuronal differentiation- acts as a pioneer transcription factor, accessing closed chromatin to allow other factors to bind and activate neural pathways. Directly binds the E box motif (5’-CANNTG-3’) on promoters and promotes transcription of neuronal genes. The combination of three transcription factors, ASCL1, POU3F2/BRN2 and MYT1L, is sufficient to reprogram fibroblasts and other somatic cells into induced neuronal (iN) cells in vitro. Plays a role at early stages of development of specific neural lineages in mos [...] (236 aa)

LHX6
LIM/homeobox protein Lhx6; Probable transcription factor required for the expression of a subset of genes involved in interneurons migration and development. Functions in the specification of cortical interneuron subtypes and in the migration of GABAergic interneuron precursors from the subpallium to the cerebral cortex (By similarity); LIM class homeoboxes (392 aa)
     
 
  0.734
LMCD1
LIM and cysteine-rich domains protein 1; Transcriptional cofactor that restricts GATA6 function by inhibiting DNA-binding, resulting in repression of GATA6 transcriptional activation of downstream target genes. Represses GATA6-mediated trans activation of lung- and cardiac tissue- specific promoters. Inhibits DNA-binding by GATA4 and GATA1 to the cTNC promoter (By similarity). Plays a critical role in the development of cardiac hypertrophy via activation of calcineurin/nuclear factor of activated T-cells signaling pathway; LIM domain containing (365 aa)
       
 
  0.712
NEUROG2
Neurogenin-2; Transcriptional regulator. Involved in neuronal differentiation. Activates transcription by binding to the E box (5’-CANNTG-3’); Basic helix-loop-helix proteins (272 aa)
     
 
  0.689
TBR1
T-box brain protein 1; Probable transcriptional regulator involved in developmental processes. Required for normal brain development; T-boxes (682 aa)
     
 
  0.687
GAD1
Glutamate decarboxylase 1; Catalyzes the production of GABA; Belongs to the group II decarboxylase family (594 aa)
     
   
  0.682
OLIG2
Oligodendrocyte transcription factor 2; Required for oligodendrocyte and motor neuron specification in the spinal cord, as well as for the development of somatic motor neurons in the hindbrain. Cooperates with OLIG1 to establish the pMN domain of the embryonic neural tube. Antagonist of V2 interneuron and of NKX2-2-induced V3 interneuron development (By similarity); Basic helix-loop-helix proteins (323 aa)
     
 
  0.673
SOX9
Transcription factor SOX-9; Transcriptional regulator. Binds to the COL2A1 promoter and activates COL2A1 expression, as part of a complex with ZNF219 (By similarity). Plays a role in chondrocyte differentiation (By similarity). Important for normal skeletal development; SRY-boxes (509 aa)
     
 
  0.663
MEIS2
Homeobox protein Meis2; Involved in transcriptional regulation. Binds to HOX or PBX proteins to form dimers, or to a DNA-bound dimer of PBX and HOX proteins and thought to have a role in stabilization of the homeoprotein-DNA complex. Isoform 3 is required for the activity of a PDX1-PBX1b-MEIS2b complex in pancreatic acinar cells involved in the transcriptional activation of the ELA1 enhancer; the complex binds to the enhancer B element and cooperates with the transcription factor 1 complex (PTF1) bound to the enhancer A element; MEIS2 is not involved in complex DNA-binding. Probably in [...] (477 aa)
