STRINGSTRING
HESX1 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"HESX1" - Homeobox expressed in ES cells 1 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

HESX1Homeobox expressed in ES cells 1; Required for the normal development of the forebrain, eyes and other anterior structures such as the olfactory placodes and pituitary gland. Possible transcriptional repressor. Binds to the palindromic PIII sequence, 5’-AGCTTGAGTCTAATTGAATTAACTGTAC-3’. HESX1 and PROP1 bind as heterodimers on this palindromic site, and, in vitro, HESX1 can antagonize PROP1 activation; Belongs to the ANF homeobox family (185 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
POU1F1
Pituitary-specific positive transcription factor 1; Transcription factor involved in the specification of the lactotrope, somatotrope, and thyrotrope phenotypes in the developing anterior pituitary. Specifically binds to the consensus sequence 5’-TAAAT-3’. Activates growth hormone and prolactin genes; Belongs to the POU transcription factor family. Class- 1 subfamily (317 aa)
     
 
  0.851
TBX19
T-box transcription factor TBX19; Transcriptional regulator involved in developmental processes. Can activate POMC gene expression and repress the alpha glycoprotein subunit and thyroid-stimulating hormone beta promoters; T-boxes (448 aa)
       
 
  0.803
SOX3
Transcription factor SOX-3; Transcription factor required during the formation of the hypothalamo-pituitary axis. May function as a switch in neuronal development. Keeps neural cells undifferentiated by counteracting the activity of proneural proteins and suppresses neuronal differentiation. Required also within the pharyngeal epithelia for craniofacial morphogenesis. Controls a genetic switch in male development. Is necessary for initiating male sex determination by directing the development of supporting cell precursors (pre-Sertoli cells) as Sertoli rather than granulosa cells (By s [...] (446 aa)
       
 
  0.719
TLE3
Transducin-like enhancer protein 3; Transcriptional corepressor that binds to a number of transcription factors. Inhibits the transcriptional activation mediated by CTNNB1 and TCF family members in Wnt signaling. The effects of full-length TLE family members may be modulated by association with dominant-negative AES (By similarity); WD repeat domain containing (772 aa)
       
 
  0.691
ASB14
Ankyrin repeat and SOCS box protein 14; May be a substrate-recognition component of a SCF-like ECS (Elongin-Cullin-SOCS-box protein) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex which mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins; Belongs to the ankyrin SOCS box (ASB) family (587 aa)
       
 
  0.663
DNAH12
Dynein axonemal heavy chain 12 (457 aa)
           
  0.662
PROKR2
Prokineticin receptor 2; Receptor for prokineticin 2. Exclusively coupled to the G(q) subclass of heteromeric G proteins. Activation leads to mobilization of calcium, stimulation of phosphoinositide turnover and activation of p44/p42 mitogen-activated protein kinase (384 aa)
       
 
  0.652
TLE1
Transducin-like enhancer protein 1; Transcriptional corepressor that binds to a number of transcription factors. Inhibits NF-kappa-B-regulated gene expression. Inhibits the transcriptional activation mediated by FOXA2, and by CTNNB1 and TCF family members in Wnt signaling. The effects of full-length TLE family members may be modulated by association with dominant-negative AES. Unusual function as coactivator for ESRRG; Belongs to the WD repeat Groucho/TLE family (770 aa)
       
 
  0.652
GHRHR
Growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor; Receptor for GRF, coupled to G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase. Stimulates somatotroph cell growth, growth hormone gene transcription and growth hormone secretion; Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 2 family (423 aa)
           
  0.648
ZPBP
Zona pellucida-binding protein 1; Plays a role in acrosome compaction and sperm morphogenesis. Is implicated in sperm-oocyte interaction during fertilization (By similarity); Immunoglobulin like domain containing (351 aa)
