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

VSTM2LV-set and transmembrane domain-containing protein 2-like protein; V-set and transmembrane domain containing 2 like (204 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
TRIM11
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase TRIM11; E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that promotes the degradation of insoluble ubiquitinated proteins, including insoluble PAX6, poly-Gln repeat expanded HTT and poly-Ala repeat expanded ARX. Mediates PAX6 ubiquitination leading to proteasomal degradation, thereby modulating cortical neurogenesis. May also inhibit PAX6 transcriptional activity, possibly in part by preventing the binding of PAX6 to its consensus sequences. May contribute to the regulation of the intracellular level of HN (humanin) or HN-containing proteins through the proteasomal degradation [...]

LY6H
Lymphocyte antigen 6H; Believed to act as a modulator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) activity. In vitro inhibits alpha-3:beta-4-containing nAChRs maximum response. May play a role in the intracellular trafficking of alpha-7-containing nAChRs and may inhibit their expression at the cell surface. Seems to inhibit alpha-7/CHRNA7 signaling in hippocampal neurons; LY6/PLAUR domain containing

EFCAB8
EF-hand calcium-binding domain-containing protein 8; EF-hand calcium binding domain 8
      
 0.642
CTXN1
Cortexin-1; May mediate extracellular or intracellular signaling of cortical neurons during forebrain development
   
  
 0.612
MPHOSPH8
M-phase phosphoprotein 8; Heterochromatin component that specifically recognizes and binds methylated 'Lys-9' of histone H3 (H3K9me) and promotes recruitment of proteins that mediate epigenetic repression. Mediates recruitment of the HUSH complex to H3K9me3 sites: the HUSH complex is recruited to genomic loci rich in H3K9me3 and is probably required to maintain transcriptional silencing by promoting recruitment of SETDB1, a histone methyltransferase that mediates further deposition of H3K9me3. Binds H3K9me and promotes DNA methylation by recruiting DNMT3A to target CpG sites; these can [...]

FBXW9
F-box/WD repeat-containing protein 9; Substrate-recognition component of the SCF (SKP1-CUL1-F- box protein)-type E3 ubiquitin ligase complex; F-box and WD repeat domain containing
      
 0.521
CHGA
Chromogranin-A; Pancreastatin: Strongly inhibits glucose induced insulin release from the pancreas; Belongs to the chromogranin/secretogranin protein family
   
  
 0.510
RCAN2
Calcipressin-2; Inhibits calcineurin-dependent transcriptional responses by binding to the catalytic domain of calcineurin A. Could play a role during central nervous system development; Belongs to the RCAN family
   
  
 0.500
ZNF385B
Zinc finger protein 385B; May play a role in p53/TP53-mediated apoptosis
   
  
 0.477
GNG4
Guanine nucleotide-binding protein G(I)/G(S)/G(O) subunit gamma-4; Guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) are involved as a modulator or transducer in various transmembrane signaling systems. The beta and gamma chains are required for the GTPase activity, for replacement of GDP by GTP, and for G protein- effector interaction
