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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
AKR1C4Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C4; Catalyzes the transformation of the potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT) into the less active form, 5-alpha- androstan-3-alpha,17-beta-diol (3-alpha-diol). Also has some 20- alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity. The biotransformation of the pesticide chlordecone (kepone) to its corresponding alcohol leads to increased biliary excretion of the pesticide and concomitant reduction of its neurotoxicity since bile is the major excretory route; Aldo-keto reductases (323 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
3-oxo-5-alpha-steroid 4-dehydrogenase 1; Converts testosterone into 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone and progesterone or corticosterone into their corresponding 5- alpha-3-oxosteroids. It plays a central role in sexual differentiation and androgen physiology
3-oxo-5-alpha-steroid 4-dehydrogenase 2; Converts testosterone (T) into 5-alpha- dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and progesterone or corticosterone into their corresponding 5-alpha-3-oxosteroids. It plays a central role in sexual differentiation and androgen physiology
Corticosteroid 11-beta-dehydrogenase isozyme 1; Catalyzes reversibly the conversion of cortisol to the inactive metabolite cortisone. Catalyzes reversibly the conversion of 7-ketocholesterol to 7-beta-hydroxycholesterol. In intact cells, the reaction runs only in one direction, from 7- ketocholesterol to 7-beta-hydroxycholesterol (By similarity); Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily
3-oxo-5-alpha-steroid 4-dehydrogenase 3 / polyprenol reductase; Polyprenol reductase; Plays a key role in early steps of protein N-linked glycosylation by being required for the conversion of polyprenol into dolichol. Dolichols are required for the synthesis of dolichol-linked monosaccharides and the oligosaccharide precursor used for N-glycosylation. Acts as a polyprenol reductase that promotes the reduction of the alpha-isoprene unit of polyprenols into dolichols in a NADP-dependent mechanism. Also able to convert testosterone (T) into 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
Sterol 26-hydroxylase, mitochondrial; Catalyzes the first step in the oxidation of the side chain of sterol intermediates; the 27-hydroxylation of 5-beta- cholestane-3-alpha,7-alpha,12-alpha-triol. Has also a vitamin D3- 25-hydroxylase activity; Belongs to the cytochrome P450 family
7-alpha-hydroxycholest-4-en-3-one 12-alpha-hydroxylase; Involved in bile acid synthesis and is responsible for the conversion of 7 alpha-hydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one into 7 alpha, 12 alpha-dihydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one. Responsible for the balance between formation of cholic acid and chenodeoxycholic acid. Has a rather broad substrate specificity including a number of 7-alpha- hydroxylated C27 steroids; Cytochrome P450 family 8
Hydroxysteroid 11-beta-dehydrogenase 1-like protein; Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily; Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family
3-oxo-5-beta-steroid 4-dehydrogenase; Efficiently catalyzes the reduction of progesterone, androstenedione, 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone and testosterone to 5-beta-reduced metabolites. The bile acid intermediates 7- alpha,12-alpha-dihydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one and 7-alpha-hydroxy-4- cholesten-3-one can also act as substrates; Aldo-keto reductases
Retinol-binding protein 2; Intracellular transport of retinol; Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family
3alpha-hydroxysteroid 3-dehydrogenase; Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C2; Works in concert with the 5-alpha/5-beta-steroid reductases to convert steroid hormones into the 3-alpha/5-alpha and 3-alpha/5-beta-tetrahydrosteroids. Catalyzes the inactivation of the most potent androgen 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone (5-alpha- DHT) to 5-alpha-androstane-3-alpha,17-beta-diol (3-alpha-diol). Has a high bile-binding ability
