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

B3GNT9UDP-GlcNAc:betaGal beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 9 (402 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MUC17
Mucin-17; Probably plays a role in maintaining homeostasis on mucosal surfaces; Mucins
     
 0.903
MUC1
Mucin-1; The alpha subunit has cell adhesive properties. Can act both as an adhesion and an anti-adhesion protein. May provide a protective layer on epithelial cells against bacterial and enzyme attack; CD molecules
   
 
  0.902
MUC20
Mucin-20; May regulate MET signaling cascade. Seems to decrease hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)-induced transient MAPK activation. Blocks GRB2 recruitment to MET thus suppressing the GRB2-RAS pathway. Inhibits HGF-induced proliferation of MMP1 and MMP9 expression; Mucins
     
 0.901
MUCL1
Mucin-like protein 1; May play a role as marker for the diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer
     
  0.900
MUC21
Mucin-21; Mucin 21, cell surface associated; Mucins
     
  0.900
MUC3A
Mucin-3A; Major glycoprotein component of a variety of mucus gels. Thought to provide a protective, lubricating barrier against particles and infectious agents at mucosal surfaces. May be involved in ligand binding and intracellular signaling; Mucins
     
  0.900
MUC16
Mucin-16; Thought to provide a protective, lubricating barrier against particles and infectious agents at mucosal surfaces; Mucins
     
  0.900
MUC6
Mucin-6; May provide a mechanism for modulation of the composition of the protective mucus layer related to acid secretion or the presence of bacteria and noxious agents in the lumen. Plays an important role in the cytoprotection of epithelial surfaces and are used as tumor markers in a variety of cancers. May play a role in epithelial organogenesis; Mucins
     
  0.900
MUC7
Mucin-7; May function in a protective capacity by promoting the clearance of bacteria in the oral cavity and aiding in mastication, speech, and swallowing. Binds P.aeruginosa pili; Mucins
     
  0.900
MUC15
Mucin-15; May play a role in the cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix; Mucins
     
  0.900
