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
ANGPTL6Angiopoietin-related protein 6; May play a role in the wound healing process. May promote epidermal proliferation, remodeling and regeneration. May promote the chemotactic activity of endothelial cells and induce neovascularization. May counteract high-fat diet-induced obesity and related insulin resistance through increased energy expenditure; Angiopoietin like (470 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Angiopoietin-like protein 8; Hormone that acts as a blood lipid regulator by regulating serum triglyceride levels. May be involved in the metabolic transition between fasting and refeeding: required to direct fatty acids to adipose tissue for storage in the fed state (By similarity); Belongs to the ANGPTL8 family
Repressor of yield of DENV protein; Exhibits antiviral activity against dengue virus (DENV) and can inhibit the replication of all DENV serotypes. May block the protein translation of DENV RNA via its association with cellular mRNA-binding proteins and viral RNA. Can also limit the replication of hepatitis C virus (HCV), West Nile virus (WNV), Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), herpes simplex virus type 1 (HHV-1) and human adenovirus; Belongs to the RyDEN family
Integrin alpha-IIb; Integrin alpha-IIb/beta-3 is a receptor for fibronectin, fibrinogen, plasminogen, prothrombin, thrombospondin and vitronectin. It recognizes the sequence R-G-D in a wide array of ligands. It recognizes the sequence H-H-L-G-G-G-A-K-Q-A-G-D-V in fibrinogen gamma chain. Following activation integrin alpha- IIb/beta-3 brings about platelet/platelet interaction through binding of soluble fibrinogen. This step leads to rapid platelet aggregation which physically plugs ruptured endothelial cell surface; CD molecules
Lipoprotein lipase; The primary function of this lipase is the hydrolysis of triglycerides of circulating chylomicrons and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL). Binding to heparin sulfate proteogylcans at the cell surface is vital to the function. The apolipoprotein, APOC2, acts as a coactivator of LPL activity in the presence of lipids on the luminal surface of vascular endothelium (By similarity); Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Lipase family
GDP-mannose 4,6 dehydratase; Catalyzes the conversion of GDP-D-mannose to GDP-4- dehydro-6-deoxy-D-mannose; Belongs to the NAD(P)-dependent epimerase/dehydratase family. GDP-mannose 4,6-dehydratase subfamily
Protein-glutamine gamma-glutamyltransferase 6; Catalyzes the cross-linking of proteins and the conjugation of polyamines to proteins; Belongs to the transglutaminase superfamily. Transglutaminase family
ADP-ribosyltransferase 5
Probable G-protein coupled receptor 45; Orphan receptor. May play a role in brain function; G protein-coupled receptors, Class A orphans
Fibroblast growth factor 21; Stimulates glucose uptake in differentiated adipocytes via the induction of glucose transporter SLC2A1/GLUT1 expression (but not SLC2A4/GLUT4 expression). Activity requires the presence of KLB; Belongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family
Leucine-rich repeat and immunoglobulin-like domain-containing nogo receptor-interacting protein 2; Leucine rich repeat and Ig domain containing 2
