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

ERC2ERC protein 2; Thought to be involved in the organization of the cytomatrix at the nerve terminals active zone (CAZ) which regulates neurotransmitter release. Seems to act together with BSN. May recruit liprin-alpha proteins to the CAZ (957 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
RIMS1
Regulating synaptic membrane exocytosis protein 1; Rab effector involved in exocytosis (By similarity). May act as scaffold protein that regulates neurotransmitter release at the active zone. Essential for maintaining normal probability of neurotransmitter release and for regulating release during short- term synaptic plasticity (By similarity). Plays a role in dendrite formation by melanocytes; PDZ domain containing

TUBGCP2
Gamma-tubulin complex component 2; Gamma-tubulin complex is necessary for microtubule nucleation at the centrosome
      
 0.893
BSN
Protein bassoon; Is thought to be involved in the organization of the cytomatrix at the nerve terminals active zone (CAZ) which regulates neurotransmitter release. Seems to act through binding to ERC2/CAST1. Essential in regulated neurotransmitter release from a subset of brain glutamatergic synapses. Involved in the formation of the retinal photoreceptor ribbon synapses (By similarity); Zinc fingers

PPFIA3
Liprin-alpha-3; May regulate the disassembly of focal adhesions. May localize receptor-like tyrosine phosphatases type 2A at specific sites on the plasma membrane, possibly regulating their interaction with the extracellular environment and their association with substrates; Belongs to the liprin family. Liprin-alpha subfamily
   
 
 0.879
PPFIA1
Liprin-alpha-1; May regulate the disassembly of focal adhesions. May localize receptor-like tyrosine phosphatases type 2A at specific sites on the plasma membrane, possibly regulating their interaction with the extracellular environment and their association with substrates; Sterile alpha motif domain containing
   
 
 0.870
PCLO
Protein piccolo; May act as a scaffolding protein involved in the organization of synaptic active zones and in synaptic vesicle trafficking; C2 domain containing
   
 
 0.808
TUBGCP3
Gamma-tubulin complex component 3; Gamma-tubulin complex is necessary for microtubule nucleation at the centrosome
      
 0.790
PPFIA2
Liprin-alpha-2; Alters PTPRF cellular localization and induces PTPRF clustering. May regulate the disassembly of focal adhesions. May localize receptor-like tyrosine phosphatases type 2A at specific sites on the plasma membrane, possibly regulating their interaction with the extracellular environment and their association with substrates; Belongs to the liprin family. Liprin-alpha subfamily

UNC13A
Protein unc-13 homolog A; Plays a role in vesicle maturation during exocytosis as a target of the diacylglycerol second messenger pathway. Involved in neurotransmitter release by acting in synaptic vesicle priming prior to vesicle fusion and participates in the activity-dependent refilling of readily releasable vesicle pool (RRP). Essential for synaptic vesicle maturation in most excitatory/glutamatergic but not inhibitory/GABA-mediated synapses (By similarity). Also involved in secretory granule priming in insulin secretion (By similarity). Interacts with FBXO45 (via SRY domain); lead [...]

PCNT
Pericentrin; Integral component of the filamentous matrix of the centrosome involved in the initial establishment of organized microtubule arrays in both mitosis and meiosis. Plays a role, together with DISC1, in the microtubule network formation. Is an integral component of the pericentriolar material (PCM). May play an important role in preventing premature centrosome splitting during interphase by inhibiting NEK2 kinase activity at the centrosome
