STRINGSTRING
SLC6A8 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"SLC6A8" - Sodium- and chloride-dependent creatine transporter 1 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

SLC6A8Sodium- and chloride-dependent creatine transporter 1; Required for the uptake of creatine in muscles and brain; Solute carriers (635 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GAMT
Guanidinoacetate N-methyltransferase; Converts guanidinoacetate to creatine, using S- adenosylmethionine as the methyl donor. Important in nervous system development; Belongs to the class I-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. RMT2 methyltransferase family (269 aa)
           
  0.839
CKMT1B
Creatine kinase, mitochondrial 1B; Reversibly catalyzes the transfer of phosphate between ATP and various phosphogens (e.g. creatine phosphate). Creatine kinase isoenzymes play a central role in energy transduction in tissues with large, fluctuating energy demands, such as skeletal muscle, heart, brain and spermatozoa (417 aa)
     
   
  0.813
CKMT1A
Creatine kinase U-type, mitochondrial; Reversibly catalyzes the transfer of phosphate between ATP and various phosphogens (e.g. creatine phosphate). Creatine kinase isoenzymes play a central role in energy transduction in tissues with large, fluctuating energy demands, such as skeletal muscle, heart, brain and spermatozoa (417 aa)
     
   
  0.812
GATM
Glycine amidinotransferase, mitochondrial; Catalyzes the biosynthesis of guanidinoacetate, the immediate precursor of creatine. Creatine plays a vital role in energy metabolism in muscle tissues. May play a role in embryonic and central nervous system development. May be involved in the response to heart failure by elevating local creatine synthesis; Belongs to the amidinotransferase family (423 aa)
           
  0.794
CKB
Creatine kinase B-type; Reversibly catalyzes the transfer of phosphate between ATP and various phosphogens (e.g. creatine phosphate). Creatine kinase isoenzymes play a central role in energy transduction in tissues with large, fluctuating energy demands, such as skeletal muscle, heart, brain and spermatozoa (381 aa)
     
   
  0.777
ATP6AP1L
V-type proton ATPase subunit S1-like protein; ATPase H+ transporting accessory protein 1 like (224 aa)
           
  0.685
NME4
Nucleoside diphosphate kinase, mitochondrial; Major role in the synthesis of nucleoside triphosphates other than ATP. The ATP gamma phosphate is transferred to the NDP beta phosphate via a ping-pong mechanism, using a phosphorylated active-site intermediate. Through the catalyzed exchange of gamma- phosphate between di- and triphosphonucleosides participates in regulation of intracellular nucleotide homeostasis. Binds to anionic phospholipids, predominantly to cardiolipin; the binding inhibits its phosphotransfer activity. Acts as mitochondria-specific NDK; its association with cardiol [...] (187 aa)
     
   
  0.642
ATP6AP1
V-type proton ATPase subunit S1; Accessory subunit of the proton-transporting vacuolar (V)-ATPase protein pump, which is required for luminal acidification of secretory vesicles. Guides the V-type ATPase into specialized subcellular compartments, such as neuroendocrine regulated secretory vesicles or the ruffled border of the osteoclast, thereby regulating its activity. Involved in membrane trafficking and Ca(2+)-dependent membrane fusion. May play a role in the assembly of the V-type ATPase complex. In aerobic conditions, involved in intracellular iron homeostasis, thus triggering the [...] (470 aa)
     
   
  0.576
HAPLN1
Hyaluronan and proteoglycan link protein 1; Stabilizes the aggregates of proteoglycan monomers with hyaluronic acid in the extracellular cartilage matrix; V-set domain containing (354 aa)
           
  0.557
VAC14
Protein VAC14 homolog; The PI(3,5)P2 regulatory complex regulates both the synthesis and turnover of phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,5)P2). Acts as a positive activator of PIKfyve kinase activity. Also required to maintain normal levels of phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns(3)P) and phosphatidylinositol 5-phosphate (PtdIns(5)P). Plays a role in the biogenesis of endosome carrier vesicles (ECV) / multivesicular bodies (MVB) transport intermediates from early endosomes; Belongs to the VAC14 family (782 aa)
