STRINGSTRING
COL18A1 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"COL18A1" - Collagen, type XVIII, alpha 1 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

COL18A1Collagen, type XVIII, alpha 1; COLA18A probably plays a major role in determining the retinal structure as well as in the closure of the neural tube (1519 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MMP2
Matrix metallopeptidase 2 (gelatinase A, 72kDa gelatinase, 72kDa type IV collagenase); Ubiquitinous metalloproteinase that is involved in diverse functions such as remodeling of the vasculature, angiogenesis, tissue repair, tumor invasion, inflammation, and atherosclerotic plaque rupture. As well as degrading extracellular matrix proteins, can also act on several nonmatrix proteins such as big endothelial 1 and beta-type CGRP promoting vasoconstriction. Also cleaves KISS at a Gly-|-Leu bond. Appears to have a role in myocardial cell death pathways. Contributes to myocardial oxidative s [...] (660 aa)
     
  0.981
MMP9
Matrix metallopeptidase 9 (gelatinase B, 92kDa gelatinase, 92kDa type IV collagenase); May play an essential role in local proteolysis of the extracellular matrix and in leukocyte migration. Could play a role in bone osteoclastic resorption. Cleaves KiSS1 at a Gly-|-Leu bond. Cleaves type IV and type V collagen into large C-terminal three quarter fragments and shorter N-terminal one quarter fragments. Degrades fibronectin but not laminin or Pz-peptide (707 aa)
     
 
  0.958
CTSL1
Cathepsin L1; Important for the overall degradation of proteins in lysosomes (333 aa)
       
  0.951
TP53
Tumor protein p53; Acts as a tumor suppressor in many tumor types; induces growth arrest or apoptosis depending on the physiological circumstances and cell type. Involved in cell cycle regulation as a trans-activator that acts to negatively regulate cell division by controlling a set of genes required for this process. One of the activated genes is an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases. Apoptosis induction seems to be mediated either by stimulation of BAX and FAS antigen expression, or by repression of Bcl-2 expression. In cooperation with mitochondrial PPIF is involved in activatin [...] (393 aa)
         
  0.947
ITGA5
Integrin, alpha 5 (fibronectin receptor, alpha polypeptide); Integrin alpha-5/beta-1 is a receptor for fibronectin and fibrinogen. It recognizes the sequence R-G-D in its ligands (1049 aa)
       
  0.944
COL4A5
Collagen, type IV, alpha 5; Type IV collagen is the major structural component of glomerular basement membranes (GBM), forming a ’chicken-wire’ meshwork together with laminins, proteoglycans and entactin/nidogen (1691 aa)
     
 
  0.941
ITGB1
Integrin, beta 1 (fibronectin receptor, beta polypeptide, antigen CD29 includes MDF2, MSK12); Integrins alpha-1/beta-1, alpha-2/beta-1, alpha-10/beta- 1 and alpha-11/beta-1 are receptors for collagen. Integrins alpha- 1/beta-1 and alpha-2/beta-2 recognize the proline-hydroxylated sequence G-F-P-G-E-R in collagen. Integrins alpha-2/beta-1, alpha- 3/beta-1, alpha-4/beta-1, alpha-5/beta-1, alpha-8/beta-1, alpha- 10/beta-1, alpha-11/beta-1 and alpha-V/beta-1 are receptors for fibronectin. Alpha-4/beta-1 recognizes one or more domains within the alternatively spliced CS-1 and CS-5 regions o [...] (798 aa)
     
  0.937
MMP3
Matrix metallopeptidase 3 (stromelysin 1, progelatinase); Can degrade fibronectin, laminin, gelatins of type I, III, IV, and V; collagens III, IV, X, and IX, and cartilage proteoglycans. Activates procollagenase (477 aa)
     
 
  0.937
MMP7
Matrix metallopeptidase 7 (matrilysin, uterine); Degrades casein, gelatins of types I, III, IV, and V, and fibronectin. Activates procollagenase (267 aa)
     
 
  0.936
COL15A1
Collagen, type XV, alpha 1; Structural protein that stabilizes microvessels and muscle cells, both in heart and in skeletal muscle (1388 aa)
