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
FAR1Fatty acyl-CoA reductase 1; Catalyzes the reduction of saturated and unsaturated C16 or C18 fatty acyl-CoA to fatty alcohols. It plays an essential role in the production of ether lipids/plasmalogens which synthesis requires fatty alcohols. In parallel, it is also required for wax monoesters production since fatty alcohols also constitute a substrate for their synthesis (By similarity) (515 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Glyceronephosphate O-acyltransferase
Alkyldihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase, peroxisomal; Catalyzes the exchange of an acyl for a long-chain alkyl group and the formation of the ether bond in the biosynthesis of ether phospholipids; Belongs to the FAD-binding oxidoreductase/transferase type 4 family
Peroxisomal targeting signal 2 receptor; Binds to the N-terminal PTS2-type peroxisomal targeting signal and plays an essential role in peroxisomal protein import; Belongs to the WD repeat peroxin-7 family
Fatty acyl-CoA reductase 2; Catalyzes the reduction of saturated but not unsaturated C16 or C18 fatty acyl-CoA to fatty alcohols. A lower activity can be observed with shorter fatty acyl-CoA substrates. It may play a role in the production of ether lipids/plasmalogens and wax monoesters which synthesis requires fatty alcohols as substrates (By similarity)
Coiled-coil serine rich protein 1
Peroxisomal biogenesis factor 19; Necessary for early peroxisomal biogenesis. Acts both as a cytosolic chaperone and as an import receptor for peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs). Binds and stabilizes newly synthesized PMPs in the cytoplasm by interacting with their hydrophobic membrane-spanning domains, and targets them to the peroxisome membrane by binding to the integral membrane protein PEX3. Excludes CDKN2A from the nucleus and prevents its interaction with MDM2, which results in active degradation of TP53; Belongs to the peroxin-19 family
phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase alpha subunit; Aminoacyl tRNA synthetases, Class II
Acyl-CoA-binding protein; Binds medium- and long-chain acyl-CoA esters with very high affinity and may function as an intracellular carrier of acyl-CoA esters. It is also able to displace diazepam from the benzodiazepine (BZD) recognition site located on the GABA type A receptor. It is therefore possible that this protein also acts as a neuropeptide to modulate the action of the GABA receptor
Oxysterol-binding protein-related protein 11; Plays a role in regulating ADIPOQ and FABP4 levels in differentiating adipocytes and is also involved in regulation of adipocyte triglyceride storage. Weakly binds 25- hydroxycholesterol; Belongs to the OSBP family
Battenin; Involved in microtubule-dependent, anterograde transport of late endosomes and lysosomes
