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
FAM170BProtein FAM170B; Plays a role in fertilization through the acrosome reaction; Belongs to the FAM170 family (283 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Golgi-associated PDZ and coiled-coil motif-containing protein; Plays a role in intracellular protein trafficking and degradation. May regulate CFTR chloride currents and acid-induced ASIC3 currents by modulating cell surface expression of both channels. May also regulate the intracellular trafficking of the ADR1B receptor. May play a role in autophagy. Overexpression results in CFTR intracellular retention and degradation in the lysosomes; PDZ domain containing
Leucine-rich repeat-containing protein 18; May be involved in the regulation of spermatogenesis and sperm maturation
2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase-like, mitochondrial; Oxoglutarate dehydrogenase like; Belongs to the alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase family
WD repeat- and FYVE domain-containing protein 4; Armadillo-like helical domain containing
Dorsal root ganglia homeobox protein; Transcription factor required for the formation of correct projections from nociceptive sensory neurons to the dorsal horn of the spinal cord and normal perception of pain; PRD class homeoboxes and pseudogenes
Rho GTPase-activating protein 22; Rho GTPase-activating protein involved in the signal transduction pathway that regulates endothelial cell capillary tube formation during angiogenesis. Acts as a GTPase activator for the RAC1 by converting it to an inactive GDP-bound state. Inhibits RAC1-dependent lamellipodia formation. May also play a role in transcription regulation via its interaction with VEZF1, by regulating activity of the endothelin-1 (EDN1) promoter (By similarity); Pleckstrin homology domain containing
Chimeric ERCC6-PGBD3 protein; Involved in repair of DNA damage following UV irradiation, acting either in the absence of ERCC6 or synergistically with ERCC6. Involved in the regulation of gene expression. In the absence of ERCC6, induces the expression of genes characteristic of interferon-like antiviral responses. This response is almost completely suppressed in the presence of ERCC6. In the presence of ERCC6, regulates the expression of genes involved in metabolism regulation, including IGFBP5 and IGFBP7. In vitro binds to PGBD3-related transposable elements, called MER85s; these non [...]
