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

Gene Fusion
CH25HCholesterol 25-hydroxylase; Catalyzes the formation of 25-hydroxycholesterol from cholesterol, leading to repress cholesterol biosynthetic enzymes. Plays a key role in cell positioning and movement in lymphoid tissues: 25-hydroxycholesterol is an intermediate in biosynthesis of 7-alpha,25-dihydroxycholesterol (7-alpha,25-OHC), an oxysterol that acts as a ligand for the G protein-coupled receptor GPR183/EBI2, a chemotactic receptor for a number of lymphoid cells. May play an important role in regulating lipid metabolism by synthesizing a corepressor that blocks sterol regulatory element [...] (272 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
25-hydroxycholesterol 7-alpha-hydroxylase; Oxysterol 7alpha-hydroxylase that mediates formation of 7-alpha,25-dihydroxycholesterol (7-alpha,25-OHC) from 25- hydroxycholesterol. Plays a key role in cell positioning and movement in lymphoid tissues: 7-alpha,25- dihydroxycholesterol (7-alpha,25-OHC) acts as a ligand for the G protein-coupled receptor GPR183/EBI2, a chemotactic receptor for a number of lymphoid cells (By similarity); Cytochrome P450 family 7
Cholesterol 24-hydroxylase; Involved in the turnover of cholesterol. It converts cholesterol into 24S-hydroxycholesterol and, to a lesser extent, 25-hydroxycholesterol. Has also activity with xenobiotic compounds, such as clotrimazole; Cytochrome P450 family 46
Cholesterol 7-alpha-monooxygenase; Catalyzes a rate-limiting step in cholesterol catabolism and bile acid biosynthesis by introducing a hydrophilic moiety at position 7 of cholesterol. Important for cholesterol homeostasis; Cytochrome P450 family 7
Sterol 26-hydroxylase, mitochondrial; Catalyzes the first step in the oxidation of the side chain of sterol intermediates; the 27-hydroxylation of 5-beta- cholestane-3-alpha,7-alpha,12-alpha-triol. Has also a vitamin D3- 25-hydroxylase activity; Belongs to the cytochrome P450 family
Squalene monooxygenase; Catalyzes the first oxygenation step in sterol biosynthesis and is suggested to be one of the rate-limiting enzymes in this pathway; Belongs to the squalene monooxygenase family
7-dehydrocholesterol reductase; Production of cholesterol by reduction of C7-C8 double bond of 7-dehydrocholesterol (7-DHC); Belongs to the ERG4/ERG24 family
Lysosomal acid lipase/cholesteryl ester hydrolase; Crucial for the intracellular hydrolysis of cholesteryl esters and triglycerides that have been internalized via receptor- mediated endocytosis of lipoprotein particles. Important in mediating the effect of LDL (low density lipoprotein) uptake on suppression of hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase and activation of endogenous cellular cholesteryl ester formation; Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Lipase family
Delta7-sterol 5-desaturase; Lathosterol oxidase; Catalyzes a dehydrogenation to introduce C5-6 double bond into lathosterol; Belongs to the sterol desaturase family
Delta(24)-sterol reductase; Catalyzes the reduction of the delta-24 double bond of sterol intermediates. Protects cells from oxidative stress by reducing caspase 3 activity during apoptosis induced by oxidative stress. Also protects against amyloid-beta peptide-induced apoptosis; Belongs to the FAD-binding oxidoreductase/transferase type 4 family
Sterol O-acyltransferase 1; Catalyzes the formation of fatty acid-cholesterol esters, which are less soluble in membranes than cholesterol. Plays a role in lipoprotein assembly and dietary cholesterol absorption. In addition to its acyltransferase activity, it may act as a ligase
