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

TPRNTaperin; Deafness associated genes (711 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CLIC5
Chloride intracellular channel protein 5; Required for normal hearing. It is necessary for the formation of stereocilia in the inner ear and normal development of the organ of Corti (By similarity). Can insert into membranes and form poorly selective ion channels that may also transport chloride ions. May play a role in the regulation of transepithelial ion absorption and secretion. Is required for the development and/or maintenance of the proper glomerular endothelial cell and podocyte architecture

CLIC4
Chloride intracellular channel protein 4; Can insert into membranes and form poorly selective ion channels that may also transport chloride ions. Channel activity depends on the pH. Membrane insertion seems to be redox-regulated and may occur only under oxydizing conditions. Promotes cell- surface expression of HRH3. Has alternate cellular functions like a potential role in angiogenesis or in maintaining apical- basolateral membrane polarity during mitosis and cytokinesis. Could also promote endothelial cell proliferation and regulate endothelial morphogenesis (tubulogenesis)

PPP1CC
Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase PP1-gamma catalytic subunit; Protein phosphatase that associates with over 200 regulatory proteins to form highly specific holoenzymes which dephosphorylate hundreds of biological targets. Protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) is essential for cell division, and participates in the regulation of glycogen metabolism, muscle contractility and protein synthesis. Dephosphorylates RPS6KB1. Involved in regulation of ionic conductances and long-term synaptic plasticity. May play an important role in dephosphorylating substrates such as the postsynaptic density- asso [...]

RDX
Radixin; Probably plays a crucial role in the binding of the barbed end of actin filaments to the plasma membrane; Deafness associated genes
      
 0.877
PPP1CA
Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase PP1-alpha catalytic subunit; Protein phosphatase that associates with over 200 regulatory proteins to form highly specific holoenzymes which dephosphorylate hundreds of biological targets. Protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) is essential for cell division, and participates in the regulation of glycogen metabolism, muscle contractility and protein synthesis. Involved in regulation of ionic conductances and long-term synaptic plasticity. May play an important role in dephosphorylating substrates such as the postsynaptic density-associated Ca(2+)/calmodulin de [...]

DFNB31
Whirlin; Necessary for elongation and maintenance of inner and outer hair cell stereocilia in the organ of Corti in the inner ear
    
 
 0.871
CEACAM16
Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 16; Required for proper hearing, it may play a role in maintaining the integrity of the tectorial membrane; Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. CEA family
      
 0.851
TSPEAR
Thrombospondin-type laminin G domain and EAR repeat-containing protein; May play a role in development or function of the auditory system; Deafness associated genes
      
 0.850
GPSM2
G-protein-signaling modulator 2; Plays an important role in mitotic spindle pole organization via its interaction with NUMA1. Required for cortical dynein- dynactin complex recruitment during metaphase. Plays a role in metaphase spindle orientation. Plays also an important role in asymmetric cell divisions. Has guanine nucleotide dissociation inhibitor (GDI) activity towards G(i) alpha proteins, such as GNAI1 and GNAI3, and thereby regulates their activity (By similarity); Deafness associated genes
      
 0.836
SMPX
Small muscular protein; Plays a role in the regulatory network through which muscle cells coordinate their structural and functional states during growth, adaptation, and repair; Deafness associated genes
