STRINGSTRING
FSCN2 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"FSCN2" - Fascin-2 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

FSCN2Fascin-2; Acts as an actin bundling protein. May play a pivotal role in photoreceptor cell-specific events, such as disk morphogenesis; Fascins (516 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ESPN
Espin; Multifunctional actin-bundling protein. Plays a major role in regulating the organization, dimension, dynamics and signaling capacities of the actin filament-rich microvilli in the mechanosensory and chemosensory cells. Required for the assembly and stabilization of the stereociliary parallel actin bundles. Plays a crucial role in the formation and maintenance of inner ear hair cell stereocilia. Involved in the elongation of actin in stereocilia. In extrastriolar hair cells, required for targeting MYO3B to stereocilia tips, and for regulation of stereocilia diameter and staircas [...] (854 aa)
     
  0.865
RP9
Retinitis pigmentosa 9 protein; Is thought to be a target protein for the PIM1 kinase. May play some roles in B-cell proliferation in association with PIM1 (By similarity) (221 aa)
           
  0.735
PRPF31
U4/U6 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein Prp31; Involved in pre-mRNA splicing. Required for the assembly of the U4/U5/U6 tri-snRNP complex, one of the building blocks of the spliceosome; U4/U6 small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein (499 aa)
           
  0.721
PRPF3
U4/U6 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein Prp3; Participates in pre-mRNA splicing. Part of the U4/U5/U6 tri-snRNP complex, one of the building blocks of the spliceosome; U4/U6 small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein (683 aa)
           
  0.701
MYO3A
Myosin-IIIa; Probable actin-based motor with a protein kinase activity. Probably plays a role in vision and hearing. Required for normal cochlear hair bundle development and hearing. Plays an important role in the early steps of cochlear hair bundle morphogenesis. Influences the number and lengths of stereocilia to be produced and limits the growth of microvilli within the forming auditory hair bundles thereby contributing to the architecture of the hair bundle, including its staircase pattern. Involved in the elongation of actin in stereocilia tips by transporting the actin regulatory [...] (1616 aa)
         
  0.691
IMPDH1
Inosine-5’-monophosphate dehydrogenase 1; Catalyzes the conversion of inosine 5’-phosphate (IMP) to xanthosine 5’-phosphate (XMP), the first committed and rate- limiting step in the de novo synthesis of guanine nucleotides, and therefore plays an important role in the regulation of cell growth. Could also have a single-stranded nucleic acid-binding activity and could play a role in RNA and/or DNA metabolism. It may also have a role in the development of malignancy and the growth progression of some tumors; Belongs to the IMPDH/GMPR family (599 aa)
     
   
  0.687
ACTG1
Actin, cytoplasmic 2; Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells; Belongs to the actin family (375 aa)
     
  0.684
ROM1
Rod outer segment membrane protein 1; May function as an adhesion molecule involved in stabilization and compaction of outer segment disks or in the maintenance of the curvature of the rim. It is essential for disk morphogenesis; Tetraspanins (351 aa)
     
   
  0.684
PRPF8
Pre-mRNA-processing-splicing factor 8; Functions as a scaffold that mediates the ordered assembly of spliceosomal proteins and snRNAs. Required for the assembly of the U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complex. Functions as scaffold that positions spliceosomal U2, U5 and U6 snRNAs at splice sites on pre-mRNA substrates, so that splicing can occur. Interacts with both the 5’ and the 3’ splice site (2335 aa)
           
  0.670
NRL
Neural retina-specific leucine zipper protein; Acts as a transcriptional activator which regulates the expression of several rod-specific genes, including RHO and PDE6B. Functions also as a transcriptional coactivator, stimulating transcription mediated by the transcription factor CRX and NR2E3. Binds in a sequence-specific manner to the rhodopsin promoter; Basic leucine zipper proteins (237 aa)
