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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Gene Fusion
CHST6Carbohydrate sulfotransferase 6; Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3'-phospho-5'-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of non-reducing N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues of keratan. Mediates sulfation of keratan in cornea. Keratan sulfate plays a central role in maintaining corneal transparency. Acts on the non-reducing terminal GlcNAc of short and long carbohydrate substrates that have poly-N- acetyllactosamine structures; Belongs to the sulfotransferase 1 family. Gal/GlcNAc/GalNAc subfamily (395 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Lumican; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans; Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class II subfamily
Keratocan; May be important in developing and maintaining corneal transparency and for the structure of the stromal matrix; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans
Mimecan; Induces bone formation in conjunction with TGF-beta-1 or TGF-beta-2; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans
Osteomodulin; May be implicated in biomineralization processes. Has a function in binding of osteoblasts via the alpha(V)beta(3)- integrin (By similarity); Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans
Aggrecan core protein; This proteoglycan is a major component of extracellular matrix of cartilagenous tissues. A major function of this protein is to resist compression in cartilage. It binds avidly to hyaluronic acid via an N-terminal globular region; C-type lectin domain containing
Prolargin; May anchor basement membranes to the underlying connective tissue; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans
Fibromodulin; Affects the rate of fibrils formation. May have a primary role in collagen fibrillogenesis (By similarity); Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class II subfamily
UbiA prenyltransferase domain-containing protein 1; Prenyltransferase that mediates the formation of menaquinone-4 (MK-4) and coenzyme Q10. MK-4 is a vitamin K2 isoform present at high concentrations in the brain, kidney and pancreas, and is required for endothelial cell development. Mediates the conversion of phylloquinone (PK) into MK-4, probably by cleaving the side chain of phylloquinone (PK) to release 2- methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone (menadione; K3) and then prenylating it with geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP) to form MK-4. Also plays a role in cardiovascular development independe [...]
Tumor-associated calcium signal transducer 2; May function as a growth factor receptor; Belongs to the EPCAM family
UDP-GlcNAc:betaGal beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 7; May be involved in keratane sulfate biosynthesis. Transfers N-acetylgalactosamine on to keratan sulfate-related glycans. May play a role in preventing cells from migrating out of the original tissues and invading surrounding tissues; Beta 3-glycosyltransferases
