PAX9 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"PAX9" - Paired box protein Pax-9 in Homo sapiens
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

Gene Fusion
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:
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 (303 aa)
Bone morphogenetic protein 4; Induces cartilage and bone formation. Also act in mesoderm induction, tooth development, limb formation and fracture repair. Acts in concert with PTHLH/PTHRP to stimulate ductal outgrowth during embryonic mammary development and to inhibit hair follicle induction (By similarity); Bone morphogenetic proteins (408 aa)
Homeobox protein Nkx-2.8; NKL subclass homeoboxes and pseudogenes (239 aa)
Protein odd-skipped-related 2; Odd-skipped related transciption factor 2; Zinc fingers C2H2-type (433 aa)
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 (333 aa)
Krueppel-like factor 4; Transcription factor; can act both as activator and as repressor. Binds the 5’-CACCC-3’ core sequence. Binds to the promoter region of its own gene and can activate its own transcription. Regulates the expression of key transcription factors during embryonic development. Plays an important role in maintaining embryonic stem cells, and in preventing their differentiation. Required for establishing the barrier function of the skin and for postnatal maturation and maintenance of the ocular surface. Involved in the differentiation of epithelial cells and may also fu [...] (479 aa)
Fibroblast growth factor 8; Plays an important role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and cell migration. Required for normal brain, eye, ear and limb development during embryogenesis. Required for normal development of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neuronal system. Plays a role in neurite outgrowth in hippocampal cells; Belongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family (244 aa)
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 (253 aa)
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 [...] (1544 aa)
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 (254 aa)
