STRINGSTRING
SLC6A12 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"SLC6A12" - Sodium- and chloride-dependent betaine transporter in Homo sapiens
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

SLC6A12Sodium- and chloride-dependent betaine transporter; Transports betaine and GABA. May have a role in regulation of GABAergic transmission in the brain through the reuptake of GABA into presynaptic terminals, as well as in osmotic regulation; Solute carriers (614 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GATS
Putative protein GATS; GATS, stromal antigen 3 opposite strand; Belongs to the GATS family (163 aa)
           
  0.851
SLC5A3
Sodium/myo-inositol cotransporter; Prevents intracellular accumulation of high concentrations of myo-inositol (an osmolyte) that result in impairment of cellular function; Solute carriers (718 aa)
           
  0.781
GAD1
Glutamate decarboxylase 1; Catalyzes the production of GABA; Belongs to the group II decarboxylase family (594 aa)
     
   
  0.693
SLC29A3
Equilibrative nucleoside transporter 3; Mediates both influx and efflux of nucleosides across the membrane (equilibrative transporter). Mediates transport of adenine, adenosine and uridine, as well as several nucleoside analog drugs, such as anticancer and antiviral agents, including cladribine, cordycepin, tubercidin and AZT. Does not transport hypoxanthine; Solute carriers (475 aa)
     
   
  0.679
GABRR3
Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit rho-3; GABA, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain, mediates neuronal inhibition by binding to the GABA/benzodiazepine receptor and opening an integral chloride channel; Gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunits (467 aa)
           
  0.673
NFAT5
Nuclear factor of activated T-cells 5; Transcription factor involved, among others, in the transcriptional regulation of osmoprotective and inflammatory genes. Mediates the transcriptional response to hypertonicity. Positively regulates the transcription of LCN2 and S100A4 genes; optimal transactivation of these genes requires the presence of DDX5/DDX17. Binds the DNA consensus sequence 5’- [ACT][AG]TGGAAA[CAT]A[TA][ATC][CA][ATG][GT][GAC][CG][CT]-3’; Nuclear factors of activated T-cells (1548 aa)
           
  0.669
SLC15A1
Solute carrier family 15 member 1; Proton-coupled intake of oligopeptides of 2 to 4 amino acids with a preference for dipeptides. May constitute a major route for the absorption of protein digestion end-products; Solute carriers (708 aa)
     
   
  0.668
SLC22A16
Solute carrier family 22 member 16; High affinity carnitine transporter; the uptake is partially sodium-ion dependent. Thought to mediate the L-carnitine secretion mechanism from testis epididymal epithelium into the lumen which is involved in the maturation of spermatozoa. Also transports organic cations such as tetraethylammonium (TEA) and doxorubicin. The uptake of TEA is inhibited by various organic cations. The uptake of doxorubicin is sodium-independent; Belongs to the major facilitator (TC 2.A.1) superfamily. Organic cation transporter (TC 2.A.1.19) family (577 aa)
           
  0.668
GAD2
Glutamate decarboxylase 2; Catalyzes the production of GABA (585 aa)
     
   
  0.658
SLC32A1
Vesicular inhibitory amino acid transporter; Involved in the uptake of GABA and glycine into the synaptic vesicles; Solute carriers (525 aa)
     
   
  0.657
