STRINGSTRING
LTBP2 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"LTBP2" - Latent-transforming growth factor beta-binding protein 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

LTBP2Latent-transforming growth factor beta-binding protein 2; May play an integral structural role in elastic-fiber architectural organization and/or assembly; Latent transforming growth factor beta binding proteins (1821 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MYOC
Myocilin; Secreted glycoprotein regulating the activation of different signaling pathways in adjacent cells to control different processes including cell adhesion, cell-matrix adhesion, cytoskeleton organization and cell migration. Promotes substrate adhesion, spreading and formation of focal contacts. Negatively regulates cell-matrix adhesion and stress fiber assembly through Rho protein signal transduction. Modulates the organization of actin cytoskeleton by stimulating the formation of stress fibers through interactions with components of Wnt signaling pathways. Promotes cell migrat [...] (504 aa)
     
   
  0.684
FBLN5
Fibulin-5; Essential for elastic fiber formation, is involved in the assembly of continuous elastin (ELN) polymer and promotes the interaction of microfibrils and ELN. Stabilizes and organizes elastic fibers in the skin, lung and vasculature (By similarity). Promotes adhesion of endothelial cells through interaction of integrins and the RGD motif. Vascular ligand for integrin receptors which may play a role in vascular development and remodeling. May act as an adapter that mediates the interaction between FBN1 and ELN; Belongs to the fibulin family (448 aa)
     
 
0.672
CYP1B1
Cytochrome P450 1B1; Cytochromes P450 are a group of heme-thiolate monooxygenases. In liver microsomes, this enzyme is involved in an NADPH-dependent electron transport pathway. It oxidizes a variety of structurally unrelated compounds, including steroids, fatty acids, retinoid and xenobiotics. Preferentially oxidizes 17beta- estradiol to the carcinogenic 4-hydroxy derivative, and a variety of procarcinogenic compounds to their activated forms, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Promotes angiogenesis by removing cellular oxygenation products, thereby decreasing oxidative stres [...] (543 aa)
     
 
  0.656
TMPRSS6
Transmembrane protease serine 6; Serine protease which hydrolyzes a range of proteins including type I collagen, fibronectin and fibrinogen. Can also activate urokinase-type plasminogen activator with low efficiency. May play a specialized role in matrix remodeling processes in liver. Through the cleavage of HFE2, a regulator of the expression of the iron absorption-regulating hormone hepicidin/HAMP, plays a role in iron homeostasis (824 aa)
           
  0.643
LOXL1
Lysyl oxidase homolog 1; Active on elastin and collagen substrates (574 aa)
     
 
  0.631
WNT10A
Protein Wnt-10a; Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Probable developmental protein. May be a signaling molecule important in CNS development. Is likely to signal over only few cell diameters; Belongs to the Wnt family (417 aa)
       
 
  0.612
WDR36
WD repeat-containing protein 36; Involved in the nucleolar processing of SSU 18S rRNA. Involved in T-cell activation and highly coregulated with IL2; UTPb subcomplex (951 aa)
           
  0.585
ELN
Elastin; Major structural protein of tissues such as aorta and nuchal ligament, which must expand rapidly and recover completely. Molecular determinant of the late arterial morphogenesis, stabilizing arterial structure by regulating proliferation and organization of vascular smooth muscle (By similarity) (786 aa)
     
   
  0.575
ADAMTS10
A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 10; Metalloprotease that participate in microfibrils assembly. Microfibrils are extracellular matrix components occurring independently or along with elastin in the formation of elastic tissues; ADAM metallopeptidases with thrombospondin type 1 motif (1103 aa)
     
   
  0.575
MFAP2
Microfibrillar-associated protein 2; Component of the elastin-associated microfibrils; Belongs to the MFAP family (183 aa)
