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

ADAMTS4A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 4; Cleaves aggrecan, a cartilage proteoglycan, and may be involved in its turnover. May play an important role in the destruction of aggrecan in arthritic diseases. Could also be a critical factor in the exacerbation of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer disease. Cleaves aggrecan at the '392-Glu-|-Ala-393' site; ADAM metallopeptidases with thrombospondin type 1 motif (837 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ACAN
Aggrecan core protein; This proteoglycan is a major component of extracellular matrix of cartilagenous tissues. A major function of this protein is to resist compression in cartilage. It binds avidly to hyaluronic acid via an N-terminal globular region; C-type lectin domain containing
   
 0.993
BCAN
Brevican core protein; May play a role in the terminally differentiating and the adult nervous system during postnatal development. Could stabilize interactions between hyaluronan (HA) and brain proteoglycans; C-type lectin domain containing
   
 0.976
POFUT2
GDP-fucose protein O-fucosyltransferase 2; Catalyzes the reaction that attaches fucose through an O-glycosidic linkage to a conserved serine or threonine residue in the consensus sequence C1-X(2,3)-S/T-C2-X(2)-G of thrombospondin type 1 repeats where C1 and C2 are the first and second cysteines, respectively. O-fucosylates members of several protein families including the ADAMTS family, the thrombosporin (TSP) and spondin families. The O-fucosylation of TSRs is also required for restricting epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT), maintaining the correct patterning of mesoderm and l [...]

ADAMTSL2
ADAMTS-like protein 2; ADAMTS like 2
   
 
0.922
ADAMTS13
A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 13; Cleaves the vWF multimers in plasma into smaller forms thereby controlling vWF-mediated platelet thrombus formation; ADAM metallopeptidases with thrombospondin type 1 motif
     
0.920
ADAMTSL4
ADAMTS-like protein 4; Positive regulation of apoptosis. May facilitate FBN1 microfibril biogenesis; ADAMTS like
     
0.918
ADAMTSL1
ADAMTS-like protein 1; I-set domain containing; ADAMTS like
   
 
0.918
ADAMTS2
A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 2; Cleaves the propeptides of type I and II collagen prior to fibril assembly. Does not act on type III collagen. May also play a role in development that is independent of its role in collagen biosynthesis; ADAM metallopeptidases with thrombospondin type 1 motif
   
0.917
THBS1
Thrombospondin-1; Adhesive glycoprotein that mediates cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions. Binds heparin. May play a role in dentinogenesis and/or maintenance of dentin and dental pulp (By similarity). Ligand for CD36 mediating antiangiogenic properties. Plays a role in ER stress response, via its interaction with the activating transcription factor 6 alpha (ATF6) which produces adaptive ER stress response factors (By similarity)
