TFEC protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"TFEC" - Transcription factor EC in Homo sapiens
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Gene Fusion
TFECTranscription factor EC; Transcriptional regulator that acts as a repressor or an activator. Acts as a transcriptional repressor on minimal promoter containing element F (that includes an E-box sequence). Binds to element F in an E-box sequence-specific manner. Acts as a transcriptional transactivator on the proximal promoter region of the tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) E-box containing promoter (By similarity). Collaborates with MITF in target gene activation (By similarity). Acts as a transcriptional repressor on minimal promoter containing mu E3 enhancer sequence (By sim [...] (347 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Cytokine receptor common subunit beta; High affinity receptor for interleukin-3, interleukin-5 and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor; CD molecules (897 aa)
F-box/WD repeat-containing protein 5; Substrate recognition component of both SCF (SKP1-CUL1- F-box protein) and DCX (DDB1-CUL4-X-box) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complexes. Substrate recognition component of the SCF(FBXW5) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex which mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of SASS6 during S phase, leading to prevent centriole reduplication. The SCF(FBXW5) complex also mediates ubiquitination and degradation of actin-regulator EPS8 during G2 phase, leading to the transient degradation of EPS8 and subsequent cell shape changes re [...] (566 aa)
Transcription factor EB; Transcription factor that specifically recognizes and binds E-box sequences (5’-CANNTG-3’). Efficient DNA-binding requires dimerization with itself or with another MiT/TFE family member such as TFE3 or MITF. In association with TFE3, activates the expression of CD40L in T-cells, thereby playing a role in T- cell-dependent antibody responses in activated CD4(+) T-cells and thymus-dependent humoral immunity. Specifically recognizes and binds the CLEAR-box sequence (5’-GTCACGTGAC-3’) present in the regulatory region of many lysosomal genes, leading to activate the [...] (490 aa)
Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor receptor; Receptor for granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (CSF3), essential for granulocytic maturation. Plays a crucial role in the proliferation, differientation and survival of cells along the neutrophilic lineage. In addition it may function in some adhesion or recognition events at the cell surface; CD molecules (863 aa)
Cathepsin K; Closely involved in osteoclastic bone resorption and may participate partially in the disorder of bone remodeling. Displays potent endoprotease activity against fibrinogen at acid pH. May play an important role in extracellular matrix degradation; Cathepsins (329 aa)
Transcription factor PU.1; Binds to the PU-box, a purine-rich DNA sequence (5’- GAGGAA-3’) that can act as a lymphoid-specific enhancer. This protein is a transcriptional activator that may be specifically involved in the differentiation or activation of macrophages or B- cells. Also binds RNA and may modulate pre-mRNA splicing (By similarity); Belongs to the ETS family (271 aa)
Lymphocyte antigen 86; May cooperate with CD180 and TLR4 to mediate the innate immune response to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and cytokine production. Important for efficient CD180 cell surface expression (By similarity) (162 aa)
TRIO and F-actin-binding protein; May regulate actin cytoskeletal organization, cell spreading and cell contraction by directly binding and stabilizing filamentous F-actin. The localized formation of TARA and TRIO complexes coordinates the amount of F-actin present in stress fibers. May also serve as a linker protein to recruit proteins required for F-actin formation and turnover; Deafness associated genes (2365 aa)
CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein epsilon; Transcriptional activator. C/EBP are DNA-binding proteins that recognize two different motifs- the CCAAT homology common to many promoters and the enhanced core homology common to many enhancers. Required for the promyelocyte- myelocyte transition in myeloid differentiation; Belongs to the bZIP family. C/EBP subfamily (281 aa)
Stabilin-1; Acts as a scavenger receptor for acetylated low density lipoprotein. Binds to both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and may play a role in defense against bacterial infection. When inhibited in endothelial tube formation assays, there is a marked decrease in cell-cell interactions, suggesting a role in angiogenesis. Involved in the delivery of newly synthesized CHID1/SI-CLP from the biosynthetic compartment to the endosomal/lysosomal system (2570 aa)
