STRINGSTRING
LCN6 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"LCN6" - Epididymal-specific lipocalin-6 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

LCN6Epididymal-specific lipocalin-6; May play a role in male fertility; Lipocalins (163 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
LCN10
Epididymal-specific lipocalin-10; Lipocalin 10; Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family (200 aa)
 
 
   
  0.878
LCN8
Epididymal-specific lipocalin-8; May play a role in male fertility. May act as a retinoid carrier protein within the epididymis; Lipocalins (152 aa)
     
   
  0.672
LCN1
Lipocalin-1; Could play a role in taste reception. Could be necessary for the concentration and delivery of sapid molecules in the gustatory system. Can bind various ligands, with chemical structures ranging from lipids and retinoids to the macrocyclic antibiotic rifampicin and even to microbial siderophores. Exhibits an extremely wide ligand pocket; Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family (176 aa)
     
   
  0.624
LCN9
Epididymal-specific lipocalin-9; Lipocalin 9; Lipocalins (176 aa)
     
   
  0.599
OBP2A
Odorant-binding protein 2a; Probably binds and transports small hydrophobic volatile molecules with a higher affinity for aldehydes and large fatty acids; Lipocalins (170 aa)
           
  0.590
PTGDS
Prostaglandin-H2 D-isomerase; Catalyzes the conversion of PGH2 to PGD2, a prostaglandin involved in smooth muscle contraction/relaxation and a potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation. Involved in a variety of CNS functions, such as sedation, NREM sleep and PGE2-induced allodynia, and may have an anti-apoptotic role in oligodendrocytes. Binds small non-substrate lipophilic molecules, including biliverdin, bilirubin, retinal, retinoic acid and thyroid hormone, and may act as a scavenger for harmful hydrophopic molecules and as a secretory retinoid and thyroid hormone transporter. Possib [...] (190 aa)
     
   
  0.567
INSC
Protein inscuteable homolog; May function as an adapter linking the Par3 complex to the GPSM1/GPSM2 complex. Involved in spindle orientation during mitosis. May regulate cell proliferation and differentiation in the developing nervous system. May play a role in the asymmetric division of fibroblasts and participate in the process of stratification of the squamous epithelium (By similarity); Armadillo-like helical domain containing (579 aa)
           
  0.566
LCNL1
Lipocalin-like 1 protein; Lipocalin like 1; Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family (164 aa)
     
   
  0.566

  0.556
C8G
Complement component C8 gamma chain; C8 is a constituent of the membrane attack complex. C8 binds to the C5B-7 complex, forming the C5B-8 complex. C5-B8 binds C9 and acts as a catalyst in the polymerization of C9. The gamma subunit seems to be able to bind retinol; Complement system (202 aa)
