STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

PAX9Paired box protein Pax-9; Transcription factor required for normal development of thymus, parathyroid glands, ultimobranchial bodies, teeth, skeletal elements of skull and larynx as well as distal limbs; Paired boxes (341 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MSX1
Homeobox protein MSX-1; Acts as a transcriptional repressor. May play a role in limb-pattern formation. Acts in cranofacial development and specifically in odontogenesis. Expression in the developing nail bed mesenchyme is important for nail plate thickness and integrity; Belongs to the Msh homeobox family
    
 
 0.987
KDM5B
Lysine-specific demethylase 5B; Histone demethylase that demethylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Does not demethylate histone H3 'Lys-9' or H3 'Lys-27'. Demethylates trimethylated, dimethylated and monomethylated H3 'Lys-4'. Acts as a transcriptional corepressor for FOXG1B and PAX9. Favors the proliferation of breast cancer cells by repressing tumor suppressor genes such as BRCA1 and HOXA5. In contrast, may act as a tumor suppressor for melanoma. Represses the CLOCK-ARNTL/BMAL1 heterodimer-mediated transcriptional activation of the core clock [...]

NKX2-8
Homeobox protein Nkx-2.8; NKL subclass homeoboxes and pseudogenes
   
 
 0.800
PRRX2
Paired mesoderm homeobox protein 2; May play a role in the scarless healing of cutaneous wounds during the first two trimesters of development; Belongs to the paired homeobox family
      
 0.739
SLC25A21
Mitochondrial 2-oxodicarboxylate carrier; Transports C5-C7 oxodicarboxylates across the inner membranes of mitochondria. Can transport 2-oxoadipate, 2- oxoglutarate, adipate, glutarate, and to a lesser extent, pimelate, 2-oxopimelate, 2-aminoadipate, oxaloacetate, and citrate; Belongs to the mitochondrial carrier (TC 2.A.29) family
   
  
 0.713
NKX3-2
Homeobox protein Nkx-3.2; Transcriptional repressor that acts as a negative regulator of chondrocyte maturation. PLays a role in distal stomach development; required for proper antral-pyloric morphogenesis and development of antral-type epithelium. In concert with GSC, defines the structural components of the middle ear; required for tympanic ring and gonium development and in the regulation of the width of the malleus (By similarity); Belongs to the NK-3 homeobox family
   
 
 0.713
EDAR
Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member EDAR; Receptor for EDA isoform A1, but not for EDA isoform A2. Mediates the activation of NF-kappa-B and JNK. May promote caspase-independent cell death; Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily
      
 0.706
BARX1
Homeobox protein BarH-like 1; Transcription factor, which is involved in craniofacial development, in odontogenesis and in stomach organogenesis. May have a role in the differentiation of molars from incisors. Plays a role in suppressing endodermal Wnt activity (By similarity). Binds to a regulatory module of the NCAM promoter; NKL subclass homeoboxes and pseudogenes
   
  
 0.702
EDARADD
Ectodysplasin-A receptor-associated adapter protein; Adapter protein that interacts with EDAR DEATH domain and couples the receptor to EDA signaling pathway during morphogenesis of ectodermal organs. Mediates the activation of NF- kappa-B
      
 0.697
AXIN2
Axin-2; Inhibitor of the Wnt signaling pathway. Down-regulates beta-catenin. Probably facilitate the phosphorylation of beta- catenin and APC by GSK3B (By similarity)
