STRINGSTRING
MAFG protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"MAFG" - Transcription factor MafG 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

MAFGTranscription factor MafG; Since they lack a putative transactivation domain, the small Mafs behave as transcriptional repressors when they dimerize among themselves. However, they seem to serve as transcriptional activators by dimerizing with other (usually larger) basic-zipper proteins and recruiting them to specific DNA-binding sites. Small Maf proteins heterodimerize with Fos and may act as competitive repressors of the NF-E2 transcription factor. Transcription factor, component of erythroid-specific transcription factor NF- E2. Activates globin gene expression when associated with [...] (162 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
NFE2
Transcription factor NF-E2 45 kDa subunit; Component of the NF-E2 complex essential for regulating erythroid and megakaryocytic maturation and differentiation. Binds to the hypersensitive site 2 (HS2) of the beta-globin control region (LCR). This subunit (NFE2) recognizes the TCAT/C sequence of the AP-1-like core palindrome present in a number of erythroid and megakaryocytic gene promoters. Requires MAFK or other small MAF proteins for binding to the NF-E2 motif. May play a role in all aspects of hemoglobin production from globin and heme synthesis to procurement of iron; Basic leucine [...] (373 aa)

NFE2L2
Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2; Transcription activator that binds to antioxidant response (ARE) elements in the promoter regions of target genes. Important for the coordinated up-regulation of genes in response to oxidative stress. May be involved in the transcriptional activation of genes of the beta-globin cluster by mediating enhancer activity of hypersensitive site 2 of the beta-globin locus control region; Basic leucine zipper proteins (605 aa)
       
  0.988
MAFF
Transcription factor MafF; Interacts with the upstream promoter region of the oxytocin receptor gene. May be a transcriptional enhancer in the up-regulation of the oxytocin receptor gene at parturition. Since it lacks a putative transactivation domain, it may behave as a transcriptional repressor when it dimerize among himself. May also serve as a transcriptional activator by dimerizing with other (usually larger) basic-zipper proteins and recruiting them to specific DNA-binding sites. May be involved in the cellular stress response; Belongs to the bZIP family. Maf subfamily (164 aa)
     
0.957
FOSB
Protein fosB; FosB interacts with Jun proteins enhancing their DNA binding activity; Belongs to the bZIP family. Fos subfamily (338 aa)
     
  0.941
HBE1
Hemoglobin subunit epsilon; The epsilon chain is a beta-type chain of early mammalian embryonic hemoglobin; Belongs to the globin family (147 aa)
         
  0.910
MAFK
Transcription factor MafK; Since they lack a putative transactivation domain, the small Mafs behave as transcriptional repressors when they dimerize among themselves. However, they seem to serve as transcriptional activators by dimerizing with other (usually larger) basic-zipper proteins and recruiting them to specific DNA-binding sites. Small Maf proteins heterodimerize with Fos and may act as competitive repressors of the NF-E2 transcription factor; Belongs to the bZIP family. Maf subfamily (156 aa)

NFE2L1
Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 1; Activates erythroid-specific, globin gene expression; Basic leucine zipper proteins (772 aa)
     
 
  0.905
HBD
Hemoglobin subunit delta; Involved in oxygen transport from the lung to the various peripheral tissues; Belongs to the globin family (147 aa)
         
    0.900
HBG2
Hemoglobin subunit gamma-2; Gamma chains make up the fetal hemoglobin F, in combination with alpha chains; Belongs to the globin family (147 aa)
         
    0.900
HBB
Hemoglobin subunit beta; Involved in oxygen transport from the lung to the various peripheral tissues; Belongs to the globin family (147 aa)
