STRINGSTRING
CYGB protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"CYGB" - Cytoglobin 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

CYGBCytoglobin; May have a protective function during conditions of oxidative stress. May be involved in intracellular oxygen storage or transfer (190 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
NGB
Neuroglobin; Involved in oxygen transport in the brain. Hexacoordinate globin, displaying competitive binding of oxygen or the distal His residue to the iron atom. Not capable of penetrating cell membranes. The deoxygenated form exhibits nitrite reductase activity inhibiting cellular respiration via NO-binding to cytochrome c oxidase. Involved in neuroprotection during oxidative stress. May exert its anti-apoptotic activity by acting to reset the trigger level of mitochondrial cytochrome c release necessary to commit the cells to apoptosis (151 aa)
     
   
  0.899
GPT
Alanine aminotransferase 1; Catalyzes the reversible transamination between alanine and 2-oxoglutarate to form pyruvate and glutamate. Participates in cellular nitrogen metabolism and also in liver gluconeogenesis starting with precursors transported from skeletal muscles (By similarity); Belongs to the class-I pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. Alanine aminotransferase subfamily (496 aa)
     
   
  0.724
EPO
Erythropoietin; Hormone involved in the regulation of erythrocyte proliferation and differentiation and the maintenance of a physiological level of circulating erythrocyte mass. Binds to EPOR leading to EPOR dimerization and JAK2 activation thereby activating specific downstream effectors, including STAT1 and STAT3; Endogenous ligands (193 aa)
           
  0.721
GBE1
1,4-alpha-glucan-branching enzyme; Required for normal glycogen accumulation. The alpha 1-6 branches of glycogen play an important role in increasing the solubility of the molecule (Probable); Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 13 family. GlgB subfamily (702 aa)
           
  0.712
NAAA
N-acylethanolamine-hydrolyzing acid amidase; Degrades bioactive fatty acid amides to their corresponding acids, with the following preference- N- palmitoylethanolamine > N-myristoylethanolamine > N- lauroylethanolamine = N-stearoylethanolamine > N- arachidonoylethanolamine > N-oleoylethanolamine. Also exhibits weak hydrolytic activity against the ceramides N- lauroylsphingosine and N-palmitoylsphingosine (359 aa)
           
  0.702
ALB
Serum albumin; Serum albumin, the main protein of plasma, has a good binding capacity for water, Ca(2+), Na(+), K(+), fatty acids, hormones, bilirubin and drugs. Its main function is the regulation of the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood. Major zinc transporter in plasma, typically binds about 80% of all plasma zinc; Belongs to the ALB/AFP/VDB family (609 aa)
           
  0.700
RHBDF2
Inactive rhomboid protein 2; Rhomboid protease-like protein which has no protease activity but regulates the secretion of several ligands of the epidermal growth factor receptor. Indirectly activates the epidermal growth factor receptor signaling pathway and may thereby regulate sleep, cell survival, proliferation and migration (By similarity); Belongs to the peptidase S54 family (856 aa)
           
  0.697
F2
Prothrombin; Thrombin, which cleaves bonds after Arg and Lys, converts fibrinogen to fibrin and activates factors V, VII, VIII, XIII, and, in complex with thrombomodulin, protein C. Functions in blood homeostasis, inflammation and wound healing; Belongs to the peptidase S1 family (622 aa)
       
 
  0.689
CRP
C-reactive protein; Displays several functions associated with host defense- it promotes agglutination, bacterial capsular swelling, phagocytosis and complement fixation through its calcium-dependent binding to phosphorylcholine. Can interact with DNA and histones and may scavenge nuclear material released from damaged circulating cells; Short pentraxins (224 aa)
           
  0.669
ADGB
Androglobin; Calpains (1667 aa)
           
  0.657
