STRINGSTRING
IRX6 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"IRX6" - Iroquois homeobox 6 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

IRX6Iroquois homeobox 6 (446 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
OLIG2
Oligodendrocyte lineage transcription factor 2; Required for oligodendrocyte and motor neuron specification in the spinal cord, as well as for the development of somatic motor neurons in the hindbrain. Cooperates with OLIG1 to establish the pMN domain of the embryonic neural tube. Antagonist of V2 interneuron and of NKX2-2-induced V3 interneuron development (By similarity) (323 aa)
           
  0.671
APPL1
Adaptor protein, phosphotyrosine interaction, PH domain and leucine zipper containing 1; Required for the regulation of cell proliferation in response to extracellular signals from an early endosomal compartment. Links Rab5 to nuclear signal transduction (709 aa)
           
  0.600
DBX2
Developing brain homeobox 2 (339 aa)
       
 
  0.578
LFNG
LFNG O-fucosylpeptide 3-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase; Glycosyltransferase that initiates the elongation of O- linked fucose residues attached to EGF-like repeats in the extracellular domain of Notch molecules. Decreases the binding of JAGGED1 to NOTCH2 but not that of DELTA1. Essential mediator of somite segmentation and patterning (By similarity) (379 aa)
     
 
  0.549
SMYD1
SET and MYND domain containing 1; Methylates histone H3 at ’Lys-4’ (H3K4me), seems able to perform both mono-, di-, and trimethylation. Acts as a transcriptional repressor. Essential for cardiomyocyte differentiation and cardiac morphogenesis (490 aa)
     
 
  0.537
NKX2-2
NK2 homeobox 2; Acts as a transcriptional activator. Required for the maintenance of NEUROD1 expression in the horomone-producing endocrine cells of the pancreas. May be involved in specifying diencephalic neuromeric boundaries, and in controlling the expression of genes that play a role in axonal guidance. Associates with chromatin at the NEUROD1 promoter region. Binds to a subset of consensus elements within the NEUROD1 promoter (By similarity) (273 aa)
       
 
  0.535
NKX2-5
NK2 homeobox 5; Implicated in commitment to and/or differentiation of the myocardial lineage. Acts as a transcriptional activator of ANF in cooperation with GATA4 (By similarity). It is transcriptionally controlled by PBX1 and acts as a transcriptional repressor of CDKN2B (By similarity). It is required for spleen development (324 aa)
     
 
  0.532
PAX6
Paired box 6; Transcription factor with important functions in the development of the eye, nose, central nervous system and pancreas. Required for the differentiation of pancreatic islet alpha cells (By similarity). Competes with PAX4 in binding to a common element in the glucagon, insulin and somatostatin promoters. Regulates specification of the ventral neuron subtypes by establishing the correct progenitor domains (By similarity). Isoform 5a appears to function as a molecular switch that specifies target genes (436 aa)
     
 
  0.513
MFNG
MFNG O-fucosylpeptide 3-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase; Glycosyltransferase involved in the elongation of O- linked ligands to activate Notch signaling. Possesses fucose- specific beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity (321 aa)
     
 
  0.505
RFNG
RFNG O-fucosylpeptide 3-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase; Glycosyltransferase that initiates the elongation of O- linked fucose residues attached to EGF-like repeats in the extracellular domain of Notch molecules. May be involved in limb formation and in neurogenesis (By similarity) (331 aa)
