close STRING Data Update
The upcoming version of STRING is available for preview: it includes new data, new enrichment categories (e.g. diseases and tissues) and covers 14000 fully sequenced genomes.
STRING protein interaction network
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 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
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
LGALS4Galectin-4; Galectin that binds lactose and a related range of sugars. May be involved in the assembly of adherens junctions; Galectins (323 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ELAV-like protein 4; May play a role in neuron-specific RNA processing. Protects CDKN1A mRNA from decay by binding to its 3'-UTR (By similarity). Binds to AU-rich sequences (AREs) of target mRNAs, including VEGF and FOS mRNA
ELAV-like protein 3; Binds to AU-rich sequences (AREs) of target mRNAs, including VEGF mRNA. May also bind poly-A tracts via RRM 3 (By similarity). May be involved in neuronal differentiation and maintenance; Belongs to the RRM elav family
ELAV-like protein 2; Binds RNA. Seems to recognize a GAAA motif. Can bind to its own 3'-UTR, the FOS 3'-UTR and the ID 3'-UTR; Belongs to the RRM elav family
ELAV-like protein 1; RNA-binding protein that binds to the 3'-UTR region of mRNAs and increases their stability. Involved in embryonic stem cells (ESCs) differentiation: preferentially binds mRNAs that are not methylated by N6-methyladenosine (m6A), stabilizing them, promoting ESCs differentiation (By similarity). Binds to poly-U elements and AU-rich elements (AREs) in the 3'-UTR of target mRNAs. Binds avidly to the AU-rich element in FOS and IL3/interleukin-3 mRNAs. In the case of the FOS AU-rich element, binds to a core element of 27 nucleotides that contain AUUUA, AUUUUA, and AUUUUU [...]
Chromodomain-helicase-DNA-binding protein 7; Probable transcription regulator. Maybe involved in the in 45S precursor rRNA production; DNA helicases
Multifunctional protein ADE2; Phosphoribosylaminoimidazole carboxylase and phosphoribosylaminoimidazolesuccinocarboxamide synthase; In the C-terminal section; belongs to the AIR carboxylase family. Class II subfamily
Palmitoleoyl-protein carboxylesterase NOTUM; Carboxylesterase that acts as a key negative regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway by specifically mediating depalmitoleoylation of WNT proteins. Serine palmitoleoylation of WNT proteins is required for efficient binding to frizzled receptors
D-3-phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the reversible oxidation of 3-phospho-D- glycerate to 3-phosphonooxypyruvate, the first step of the phosphorylated L-serine biosynthesis pathway. Also catalyzes the reversible oxidation of 2-hydroxyglutarate to 2-oxoglutarate and the reversible oxidation of (S)-malate to oxaloacetate; Belongs to the D-isomer specific 2-hydroxyacid dehydrogenase family
SH3KBP1-binding protein 1; Inhibits CBL-SH3KBP1 complex mediated down-regulation of EGFR signaling by sequestration of SH3KBP1. Binds to SH3KBP1 and prevents its interaction with CBL and inhibits translocation of SH3KBP1 to EGFR containing vesicles upon EGF stimulation; Belongs to the KCTD3 family
SPANX family member A2
