STRINGSTRING
HOXB2 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"HOXB2" - Homeobox protein Hox-B2 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

HOXB2Homeobox protein Hox-B2; Sequence-specific transcription factor which is part of a developmental regulatory system that provides cells with specific positional identities on the anterior-posterior axis; Belongs to the Antp homeobox family. Proboscipedia subfamily (356 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
PKNOX1
Homeobox protein PKNOX1; TALE class homeoboxes and pseudogenes (436 aa)
       
  0.963
PBX1
Pre-B-cell leukemia transcription factor 1; Binds the sequence 5’-ATCAATCAA-3’. Acts as a transcriptional activator of PF4 in complex with MEIS1. Converted into a potent transcriptional activator by the (1;19) translocation. May have a role in steroidogenesis and, subsequently, sexual development and differentiation. Isoform PBX1b as part of a PDX1-PBX1b-MEIS2b complex in pancreatic acinar cells is involved in the transcriptional activation of the ELA1 enhancer; the complex binds to the enhancer B element and cooperates with the transcription factor 1 complex (PTF1) bound to the enhanc [...] (430 aa)
       
  0.959
MEIS1
Homeobox protein Meis1; Acts as a transcriptional regulator of PAX6. Acts as a transcriptional activator of PF4 in complex with PBX1 or PBX2. Required for hematopoiesis, megakaryocyte lineage development and vascular patterning. May function as a cofactor for HOXA7 and HOXA9 in the induction of myeloid leukemias; TALE class homeoboxes and pseudogenes (390 aa)
     
  0.952
EGR2
E3 SUMO-protein ligase EGR2; Sequence-specific DNA-binding transcription factor. Binds to two specific DNA sites located in the promoter region of HOXA4; Belongs to the EGR C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family (476 aa)
       
  0.950
HOXB1
Homeobox protein Hox-B1; Sequence-specific transcription factor which is part of a developmental regulatory system that provides cells with specific positional identities on the anterior-posterior axis. Acts on the anterior body structures; HOXL subclass homeoboxes (301 aa)
     
 
0.928
ASH2L
Set1/Ash2 histone methyltransferase complex subunit ASH2; Component of the Set1/Ash2 histone methyltransferase (HMT) complex, a complex that specifically methylates ’Lys-4’ of histone H3, but not if the neighboring ’Lys-9’ residue is already methylated. As part of the MLL1/MLL complex it is involved in methylation and dimethylation at ’Lys-4’ of histone H3. May function as a transcriptional regulator. May play a role in hematopoiesis; PHD finger proteins (628 aa)
       
  0.914
KMT2D
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase 2D; Histone methyltransferase. Methylates ’Lys-4’ of histone H3 (H3K4me). H3K4me represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Acts as a coactivator for estrogen receptor by being recruited by ESR1, thereby activating transcription; Belongs to the class V-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Histone-lysine methyltransferase family. TRX/MLL subfamily (5537 aa)
       
  0.913
KDM6A
Lysine-specific demethylase 6A; Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates ’Lys- 27’ of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Demethylates trimethylated and dimethylated but not monomethylated H3 ’Lys-27’. Plays a central role in regulation of posterior development, by regulating HOX gene expression. Demethylation of ’Lys-27’ of histone H3 is concomitant with methylation of ’Lys-4’ of histone H3, and regulates the recruitment of the PRC1 complex and monoubiquitination of histone H2A. Plays a demethylase-independent role in chromatin remodeling to regulate [...] (1401 aa)

KMT2C
Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase 2C; Histone methyltransferase. Methylates ’Lys-4’ of histone H3. H3 ’Lys-4’ methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. Central component of the MLL2/3 complex, a coactivator complex of nuclear receptors, involved in transcriptional coactivation. KMT2C/MLL3 may be a catalytic subunit of this complex. May be involved in leukemogenesis and developmental disorder; Lysine methyltransferases (4911 aa)
       
  0.913
POLR2I
DNA-directed RNA polymerase II subunit RPB9; DNA-dependent RNA polymerase catalyzes the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates. Component of RNA polymerase II which synthesizes mRNA precursors and many functional non-coding RNAs. Pol II is the central component of the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. It is composed of mobile elements that move relative to each other. RPB9 is part of the upper jaw surrounding the central large cleft and thought to grab the incoming DNA template (By similarity) (125 aa)
