STRINGSTRING
ST3GAL3 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"ST3GAL3" - ST3 beta-galactoside alpha-2,3-sialyltransferase 3 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

ST3GAL3ST3 beta-galactoside alpha-2,3-sialyltransferase 3; Sialyltransferases (444 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
B4GALT2
Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 2; Responsible for the synthesis of complex-type N-linked oligosaccharides in many glycoproteins as well as the carbohydrate moieties of glycolipids. Can produce lactose; Beta 4-glycosyltransferases (401 aa)
     
 
  0.966
B4GALT1
Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 1; The Golgi complex form catalyzes the production of lactose in the lactating mammary gland and could also be responsible for the synthesis of complex-type N-linked oligosaccharides in many glycoproteins as well as the carbohydrate moieties of glycolipids; Beta 4-glycosyltransferases (398 aa)
         
  0.965
MUC1
Mucin-1; The alpha subunit has cell adhesive properties. Can act both as an adhesion and an anti-adhesion protein. May provide a protective layer on epithelial cells against bacterial and enzyme attack; CD molecules (484 aa)
         
  0.942
B4GALT3
Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 3; Responsible for the synthesis of complex-type N-linked oligosaccharides in many glycoproteins as well as the carbohydrate moieties of glycolipids; Beta 4-glycosyltransferases (393 aa)
         
  0.933
MUC5B
Mucin-5B; Gel-forming mucin that is thought to contribute to the lubricating and viscoelastic properties of whole saliva and cervical mucus; Mucins (5762 aa)
     
 
  0.933
MUC4
Mucin-4; May play a role in tumor progression. Ability to promote tumor growth may be mainly due to repression of apoptosis as opposed to proliferation. Has anti-adhesive properties. Seems to alter cellular behavior through both anti-adhesive effects on cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix interactions and in its ability to act as an intramembrane ligand for ERBB2. Plays an important role in cell proliferation and differentiation of epithelial cells by inducing specific phosphorylation of ERBB2. The MUC4-ERBB2 complex causes site-specific phosphorylation of the ERBB2 ’Tyr-1248’. In [...] (5412 aa)
         
  0.932
MUC16
Mucin-16; Thought to provide a protective, lubricating barrier against particles and infectious agents at mucosal surfaces; Mucins (14507 aa)
         
  0.932
MUC5AC
Mucin-5AC; Gel-forming glycoprotein of gastric and respiratoy tract epithelia that protects the mucosa from infection and chemical damage by binding to inhaled microrganisms and particles that are subsequently removed by the mucocilary system; Mucins (5654 aa)
     
 
  0.928
MUC6
Mucin-6; May provide a mechanism for modulation of the composition of the protective mucus layer related to acid secretion or the presence of bacteria and noxious agents in the lumen. Plays an important role in the cytoprotection of epithelial surfaces and are used as tumor markers in a variety of cancers. May play a role in epithelial organogenesis; Mucins (2439 aa)
         
  0.923
MUC7
Mucin-7; May function in a protective capacity by promoting the clearance of bacteria in the oral cavity and aiding in mastication, speech, and swallowing. Binds P.aeruginosa pili; Mucins (377 aa)
