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
FLG2Filaggrin-2; S100 fused type protein family; In the N-terminal section; belongs to the S-100 family (2391 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Late cornified envelope-like proline-rich protein 1; Late cornified envelope like proline rich 1; Belongs to the cornifin (SPRR) family
Late cornified envelope protein 3C; Precursors of the cornified envelope of the stratum corneum; Belongs to the LCE family
Small proline-rich protein 4; Cross-linked envelope protein of keratinocytes. Involved in UV-induced cornification; Belongs to the cornifin (SPRR) family
Protein S100-A3; Binds both calcium and zinc. May be involved in calcium- dependent cuticle cell differentiation, hair shaft and hair cuticular barrier formation; S100 calcium binding proteins
Loricrin; Major keratinocyte cell envelope protein; Cornified envelope precursor family
Small proline rich protein 1b; Cornifin-B; Cross-linked envelope protein of keratinocytes. It is a keratinocyte protein that first appears in the cell cytosol, but ultimately becomes cross-linked to membrane proteins by transglutaminase. All that results in the formation of an insoluble envelope beneath the plasma membrane. Can function as both amine donor and acceptor in transglutaminase-mediated cross- linkage; Belongs to the cornifin (SPRR) family
S100 calcium binding protein A7; EF-hand domain containing
Carbohydrate sulfotransferase 14; Catalyzes the transfer of sulfate to position 4 of the N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) residue of dermatan sulfate. Plays a pivotal role in the formation of 4-0-sulfated IdoA blocks in dermatan sulfate. Transfers sulfate to the C-4 hydroxyl of beta1,4-linked GalNAc that is substituted with an alpha-linked iduronic acid (IdoUA) at the C-3 hydroxyl. Transfers sulfate more efficiently to GalNAc residues in -IdoUA-GalNAc-IdoUA- than in -GlcUA-GalNAc-GlcUA-sequences. Has preference for partially desulfated dermatan sulfate. Addition of sulfate to GalNAc may [...]
Carbohydrate sulfotransferase 9; Catalyzes the transfer of sulfate to position 4 of non- reducing N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) residues in both N-glycans and O-glycans. Participates in biosynthesis of glycoprotein hormones lutropin and thyrotropin, by mediating sulfation of their carbohydrate structures. Has a higher activity toward carbonic anhydrase VI than toward lutropin. Only active against terminal GalNAcbeta1,GalNAcbeta. Isoform 2, but not isoform 1, is active toward chondroitin; Sulfotransferases, membrane bound
Corneodesmosin; Important for the epidermal barrier integrity
