STRINGSTRING
BSCL2 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"BSCL2" - Seipin 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

BSCL2Seipin; Is a regulator of lipid catabolism essential for adipocyte differentiation. May also be involved in the central regulation of energy homeostasis (By similarity). Necessary for correct lipid storage and lipid droplets maintenance; may play a tissue-autonomous role in controlling lipid storage in adipocytes and in preventing ectopic lipid droplet formation in non-adipose tissues (462 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
AGPAT2
1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase beta; Converts lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) into phosphatidic acid by incorporating an acyl moiety at the sn-2 position of the glycerol backbone; Belongs to the 1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase family (278 aa)
     
   
  0.931
GARS
Glycine--tRNA ligase; Catalyzes the ligation of glycine to the 3’-end of its cognate tRNA. Also produces diadenosine tetraphosphate (Ap4A), a universal pleiotropic signaling molecule needed for cell regulation pathways, by direct condensation of 2 ATPs; Belongs to the class-II aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family (739 aa)
           
  0.800
REEP1
Receptor expression-enhancing protein 1; Required for endoplasmic reticulum (ER) network formation, shaping and remodeling; it links ER tubules to the cytoskeleton. May also enhance the cell surface expression of odorant receptors. May play a role in long-term axonal maintenance; Receptor accessory proteins (208 aa)
           
  0.793
LRRN4CL
LRRN4 C-terminal-like protein; Fibronectin type III domain containing (238 aa)
 
 
   
  0.732
PTRF
Caveolae-associated protein 1; Plays an important role in caveolae formation and organization. Essential for the formation of caveolae in all tissues. Core component of the CAVIN complex which is essential for recruitment of the complex to the caveolae in presence of calveolin-1 (CAV1). Essential for normal oligomerization of CAV1. Promotes ribosomal transcriptional activity in response to metabolic challenges in the adipocytes and plays an important role in the formation of the ribosomal transcriptional loop. Dissociates transcription complexes paused by DNA-bound TTF1, thereby releas [...] (390 aa)
           
  0.708
FITM2
Fat storage-inducing transmembrane protein 2; Plays an important role in lipid droplet accumulation. Plays a role in the regulation of cell morphology and cytoskeletal organization (262 aa)
           
  0.703
HNRNPUL2
Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein U like 2 (747 aa)
 
       
  0.702
LPIN1
Phosphatidate phosphatase LPIN1; Plays important roles in controlling the metabolism of fatty acids at different levels. Acts as a magnesium-dependent phosphatidate phosphatase enzyme which catalyzes the conversion of phosphatidic acid to diacylglycerol during triglyceride, phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis in the reticulum endoplasmic membrane. Acts also as a nuclear transcriptional coactivator for PPARGC1A/PPARA to modulate lipid metabolism gene expression (By similarity). Is involved in adipocyte differentiation. May also be involved in mitochondrial fiss [...] (975 aa)
       
 
  0.694
SC5D
Lathosterol oxidase; Catalyzes a dehydrogenation to introduce C5-6 double bond into lathosterol; Belongs to the sterol desaturase family (299 aa)
       
 
  0.679
CA10
Carbonic anhydrase-related protein 10; Does not have a catalytic activity; Belongs to the alpha-carbonic anhydrase family (328 aa)
