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

LCN1Lipocalin-1; Could play a role in taste reception. Could be necessary for the concentration and delivery of sapid molecules in the gustatory system. Can bind various ligands, with chemical structures ranging from lipids and retinoids to the macrocyclic antibiotic rifampicin and even to microbial siderophores. Exhibits an extremely wide ligand pocket; Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family (176 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
LMBR1L
Protein LMBR1L; Probable LCN1 receptor. May mediate LCN1 endocytosis

KIF22
Kinesin-like protein KIF22; Kinesin family member that is involved in spindle formation and the movements of chromosomes during mitosis and meiosis. Binds to microtubules and to DNA (By similarity). Plays a role in congression of laterally attached chromosomes in NDC80- depleted cells; Kinesins

LYZ
Lysozyme C; Lysozymes have primarily a bacteriolytic function; those in tissues and body fluids are associated with the monocyte- macrophage system and enhance the activity of immunoagents; Lysozymes, c-type
    
 
 0.721
APOD
Apolipoprotein D; APOD occurs in the macromolecular complex with lecithin- cholesterol acyltransferase. It is probably involved in the transport and binding of bilin. Appears to be able to transport a variety of ligands in a number of different contexts; Apolipoproteins

PAEP
Glycodelin; Glycoprotein that regulates critical steps during fertilization and also has immunomonomodulatory effects. Four glycoforms, namely glycodelin-S, -A, -F and -C have been identified in reproductive tissues that differ in glycosylation and biological activity. Glycodelin-A has contraceptive and immunosuppressive activities. Glycodelin-C stimulates binding of spermatozoa to the zona pellucida. Glycodelin-F inhibits spermatozoa- zona pellucida binding and significantly suppresses progesterone- induced acrosome reaction of spermatozoa. Glycodelin-S in seminal plasma maintains the [...]

LTF
Lactotransferrin; Lactoferroxins A, B and C have opioid antagonist activity. Lactoferroxin A shows preference for mu-receptors, while lactoferroxin B and C have somewhat higher degrees of preference for kappa-receptors than for mu-receptors; Transferrins
    
 
 0.702
LACRT
Extracellular glycoprotein lacritin; Modulates secretion by lacrimal acinar cells
      
 0.700
PIP
Prolactin induced protein; Belongs to the PIP family
   
  
 0.673
C8G
Complement component C8 gamma chain; C8 is a constituent of the membrane attack complex. C8 binds to the C5B-7 complex, forming the C5B-8 complex. C5-B8 binds C9 and acts as a catalyst in the polymerization of C9. The gamma subunit seems to be able to bind retinol; Complement system

PRR4
Proline-rich protein 4; Proline rich 4
