STRINGSTRING
KERA protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"KERA" - Keratocan 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

KERAKeratocan; May be important in developing and maintaining corneal transparency and for the structure of the stromal matrix; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans (352 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CHST1
Carbohydrate sulfotransferase 1; Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3’-phospho-5’-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of galactose (Gal) residues of keratan. Has a preference for sulfating keratan sulfate, but it also transfers sulfate to the unsulfated polymer. The sulfotransferase activity on sialyl LacNAc structures is much higher than the corresponding desialylated substrate, and only internal Gal residues are sulfated. May function in the sulfation of sialyl N- acetyllactosamine oligosaccharide chains attached to glycoproteins. [...] (411 aa)

CHST6
Carbohydrate sulfotransferase 6; Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3’-phospho-5’-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of non-reducing N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues of keratan. Mediates sulfation of keratan in cornea. Keratan sulfate plays a central role in maintaining corneal transparency. Acts on the non-reducing terminal GlcNAc of short and long carbohydrate substrates that have poly-N- acetyllactosamine structures; Belongs to the sulfotransferase 1 family. Gal/GlcNAc/GalNAc subfamily (395 aa)
         
  0.968
B3GNT7
UDP-GlcNAc-betaGal beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 7; May be involved in keratane sulfate biosynthesis. Transfers N-acetylgalactosamine on to keratan sulfate-related glycans. May play a role in preventing cells from migrating out of the original tissues and invading surrounding tissues; Beta 3-glycosyltransferases (401 aa)
     
 
  0.958
ACAN
Aggrecan core protein; This proteoglycan is a major component of extracellular matrix of cartilagenous tissues. A major function of this protein is to resist compression in cartilage. It binds avidly to hyaluronic acid via an N-terminal globular region; C-type lectin domain containing (2530 aa)
     
 
  0.943
OGN
Mimecan; Induces bone formation in conjunction with TGF-beta-1 or TGF-beta-2; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans (298 aa)
     
 
0.933
CHST5
Carbohydrate sulfotransferase 5; Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3’-phospho-5’-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of non-reducing N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues and O-linked sugars of mucin-type acceptors. Acts on the non-reducing terminal GlcNAc of short carbohydrate substrates. However, it does not transfer sulfate to longer carbohydrate substrates that have poly-N-acetyllactosamine structures. Has no activity toward keratan. Not involved in generating HEV-expressed ligands for SELL. Its substrate specificity may be infl [...] (411 aa)

LUM
Lumican; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans; Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class II subfamily (338 aa)
   
 
0.917
FMOD
Fibromodulin; Affects the rate of fibrils formation. May have a primary role in collagen fibrillogenesis (By similarity); Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class II subfamily (376 aa)
   
 
0.916
B4GALT5
Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 5; Responsible for the synthesis of complex-type N-linked oligosaccharides in many glycoproteins as well as the carbohydrate moieties of glycolipids; Beta 4-glycosyltransferases (388 aa)
       
    0.910
PRELP
Prolargin; May anchor basement membranes to the underlying connective tissue; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans (382 aa)
