STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

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:
SRD5A1
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
     
 0.960
SRD5A2
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
   
 
 0.952
HSD11B1
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
  
 0.949
SRD5A3
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)
     
 0.944
CYP27A1
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
   
 
 0.932
CYP8B1
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
   
 
 0.924
HSD11B1L
Hydroxysteroid 11-beta-dehydrogenase 1-like protein; Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily; Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family
  
 0.910
AKR1D1
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
  
 
0.906
RBP2
Retinol-binding protein 2; Intracellular transport of retinol; Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family
   
 0.903
AKR1C2
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
