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

PCDH15Protocadherin-15; Calcium-dependent cell-adhesion protein. Essential for maintenance of normal retinal and cochlear function; Cadherin related (1962 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
LHFPL5
LHFPL tetraspan subfamily member 5 protein; In the inner ear, may be a component of the hair cell's mechanotransduction machinery that functionally couples PCDH15 to the transduction channel. Regulates transducer channel conductance and is required for fast channel adaptation (By similarity); Deafness associated genes
   
 
 0.998
USH1C
Harmonin; Anchoring/scaffolding protein that is a part of the functional network formed by USH1C, USH1G, CDH23 and MYO7A that mediates mechanotransduction in cochlear hair cells. Required for normal development and maintenance of cochlear hair cell bundles (By similarity). As part of the intermicrovillar adhesion complex/IMAC plays a role in brush border differentiation, controlling microvilli organization and length. Probably plays a central regulatory role in the assembly of the complex, recruiting CDHR2, CDHR5 and MYO7B to the microvilli tips; Deafness associated genes
    
 
 0.995
TMC1
Transmembrane channel-like protein 1; Probable ion channel required for the normal function of cochlear hair cells; Belongs to the TMC family
   
  
 0.989
MYO7A
Unconventional myosin-VIIa; Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Their highly divergent tails bind to membranous compartments, which are then moved relative to actin filaments. In the retina, plays an important role in the renewal of the outer photoreceptor disks. Plays an important role in the distribution and migration of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) melanosomes and phagosomes, and in the regulation of opsin transport in retinal photoreceptors. In the inner ear, plays an important role in differenti [...]

TMIE
Transmembrane inner ear expressed protein; Unknown. The protein may play some role in a cellular membrane location. May reside within an internal membrane compartment and function in pathways such as those involved in protein and/or vesicle trafficking. Alternatively, the mature protein may be localized in the plasma membrane and serve as a site of interaction for other molecules through its highly charged C-terminal domain; Deafness associated genes
      
 0.984
CDH23
Cadherin-23; Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells. CDH23 is required for establishing and/or maintaining the proper organization of the stereocilia bundle of hair cells in the cochlea and the vestibule during late embryonic/early postnatal development. It is part of the functional network formed by USH1C, USH1G, CDH23 and MYO7A that mediates mechanotransduction in cochlear hair cells. Required for normal hearing
   
 
0.966
DFNB31
Whirlin; Necessary for elongation and maintenance of inner and outer hair cell stereocilia in the organ of Corti in the inner ear
    
 
 0.906
LHFPL3
LHFPL tetraspan subfamily member 3
   
 
 0.894
USH1G
Usher syndrome type-1G protein; Required for normal development and maintenance of cochlear hair cell bundles. Anchoring/scaffolding protein that is a part of the functional network formed by USH1C, USH1G, CDH23 and MYO7A that mediates mechanotransduction in cochlear hair cells. Required for normal hearing; Ankyrin repeat domain containing
    
 
 0.888
CLRN1
Clarin-1; May have a role in the excitatory ribbon synapse junctions between hair cells and cochlear ganglion cells and presumably also in analogous synapses within the retina; Belongs to the clarin family
