LETM1 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"LETM1" - Mitochondrial proton/calcium exchanger protein in Homo sapiens
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

Gene Fusion
LETM1Mitochondrial proton/calcium exchanger protein; Mitochondrial proton/calcium antiporter that mediates proton-dependent calcium efflux from mitochondrion. Crucial for the maintenance of mitochondrial tubular networks and for the assembly of the supercomplexes of the respiratory chain. Required for the maintenance of the tubular shape and cristae organization. In contrast to SLC8B1/NCLX, does not constitute the major factor for mitochondrial calcium extrusion; Belongs to the LETM1 family (739 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Calcium uptake protein 1, mitochondrial; Key regulator of mitochondrial calcium uniporter (MCU) that senses calcium level via its EF-hand domains. MICU1 and MICU2 form a disulfide-linked heterodimer that stimulates and inhibits MCU activity, depending on the concentration of calcium. MICU1 acts both as an activator or inhibitor of mitochondrial calcium uptake. Acts as a gatekeeper of MCU at low concentration of calcium, preventing channel opening. Enhances MCU opening at high calcium concentration, allowing a rapid response of mitochondria to calcium signals generated in the cytoplasm. [...] (476 aa)
Mitochondrial sodium/calcium exchanger protein; Mitochondrial sodium/calcium antiporter that mediates sodium-dependent calcium efflux from mitochondrion, by mediating the exchange of 3 sodium ions per 1 calcium ion. Plays a central role in mitochondrial calcium homeostasis by mediating mitochondrial calcium extrusion- calcium efflux is essential for mitochondrial function and cell survival, notably in cardiomyocytes (By similarity). Regulates rates of glucose-dependent insulin secretion in pancreatic beta-cells during the first phase of insulin secretion- acts by mediating efflux of ca [...] (584 aa)
Calcium uniporter protein, mitochondrial; Mitochondrial inner membrane calcium uniporter that mediates calcium uptake into mitochondria. Constitutes the pore-forming and calcium-conducting subunit of the uniporter complex (uniplex). Activity is regulated by MICU1 and MICU2. At low Ca(2+) levels MCU activity is down- regulated by MICU1 and MICU2; at higher Ca(2+) levels MICU1 increases MCU activity. Mitochondrial calcium homeostasis plays key roles in cellular physiology and regulates cell bioenergetics, cytoplasmic calcium signals and activation of cell death pathways. Involved in buff [...] (351 aa)
Trafficking protein particle complex subunit 10; May play a role in vesicular transport from endoplasmic reticulum to Golgi; Belongs to the TMEM1 family (1259 aa)
Mitochondrial calcium uniporter regulator 1; Key regulator of mitochondrial calcium uniporter (MCU) required for calcium entry into mitochondrion. Plays a direct role in uniporter-mediated calcium uptake via a direct interaction with MCU. Probably involved in the assembly of the membrane components of the uniporter complex (uniplex); Belongs to the CCDC90 family (359 aa)
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase NSD2; Histone methyltransferase with histone H3 ’Lys-27’ (H3K27me) methyltransferase activity. Isoform 2 may act as a transcription regulator that binds DNA and suppresses IL5 transcription through HDAC recruitment (1365 aa)
Calcium uptake protein 2, mitochondrial; Key regulator of mitochondrial calcium uniporter (MCU) required to limit calcium uptake by MCU when cytoplasmic calcium is low. MICU1 and MICU2 form a disulfide-linked heterodimer that stimulate and inhibit MCU activity, depending on the concentration of calcium. MICU2 acts as a gatekeeper of MCU that senses calcium level via its EF-hand domains- prevents channel opening at resting calcium, avoiding energy dissipation and cell-death triggering (434 aa)
Mitochondrial chaperone BCS1; Chaperone necessary for the assembly of mitochondrial respiratory chain complex III. Plays an important role in the maintenance of mitochondrial tubular networks, respiratory chain assembly and formation of the LETM1 complex; AAA ATPases (419 aa)
Negative elongation factor A; Essential component of the NELF complex, a complex that negatively regulates the elongation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. The NELF complex, which acts via an association with the DSIF complex and causes transcriptional pausing, is counteracted by the P-TEFb kinase complex. The NELF complex is involved in HIV-1 latency possibly involving recruitment of PCF11 to paused RNA polymerase II. In vitro, the NELFA-NELFCD subcomplex binds to ssDNA and ssRNA in a sequence- and structure-dependent manner. Probably required to interact with the RNA polymerase [...] (539 aa)
Mitochondrial inner membrane protein OXA1L; Required for the insertion of integral membrane proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane. Essential for the activity and assembly of cytochrome oxidase. Required for the correct biogenesis of ATP synthase and complex I in mitochondria; Belongs to the OXA1/ALB3/YidC family (495 aa)
