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

CCBE1Collagen and calcium-binding EGF domain-containing protein 1; Required for lymphangioblast budding and angiogenic sprouting from venous endothelium during embryogenesis; Belongs to the CCBE1 family (406 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
VEGFC
Vascular endothelial growth factor C; Growth factor active in angiogenesis, and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration and also has effects on the permeability of blood vessels. May function in angiogenesis of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems during embryogenesis, and also in the maintenance of differentiated lymphatic endothelium in adults. Binds and activates KDR/VEGFR2 and FLT4/VEGFR3 receptors
      
 0.898
ADAMTS3
A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 3; Cleaves the propeptides of type II collagen prior to fibril assembly. Does not act on types I and III collagens; ADAM metallopeptidases with thrombospondin type 1 motif
      
 0.868
FLT4
Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 3; Tyrosine-protein kinase that acts as a cell-surface receptor for VEGFC and VEGFD, and plays an essential role in adult lymphangiogenesis and in the development of the vascular network and the cardiovascular system during embryonic development. Promotes proliferation, survival and migration of endothelial cells, and regulates angiogenic sprouting. Signaling by activated FLT4 leads to enhanced production of VEGFC, and to a lesser degree VEGFA, thereby creating a positive feedback loop that enhances FLT4 signaling. Modulates KDR signaling by [...]
   
  
 0.864
SOX18
Transcription factor SOX-18; Binds to the consensus sequence 5'-AACAAAG-3' and is able to trans-activate transcription via this site; SRY-boxes
      
 0.803
FIGF
Vascular endothelial growth factor D; Growth factor active in angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration and also has effects on the permeability of blood vessels. May function in the formation of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems during embryogenesis, and also in the maintenance of differentiated lymphatic endothelium in adults. Binds and activates VEGFR-2 (KDR/FLK1) and VEGFR-3 (FLT4) receptors
      
 0.755
LYVE1
Lymphatic vessel endothelial hyaluronic acid receptor 1; Ligand-specific transporter trafficking between intracellular organelles (TGN) and the plasma membrane. Plays a role in autocrine regulation of cell growth mediated by growth regulators containing cell surface retention sequence binding (CRS). May act as a hyaluronan (HA) transporter, either mediating its uptake for catabolism within lymphatic endothelial cells themselves, or its transport into the lumen of afferent lymphatic vessels for subsequent re-uptake and degradation in lymph nodes
   
  
 0.754
ADAMTS2
A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 2; Cleaves the propeptides of type I and II collagen prior to fibril assembly. Does not act on type III collagen. May also play a role in development that is independent of its role in collagen biosynthesis; ADAM metallopeptidases with thrombospondin type 1 motif
      
 0.697
PKD2L2
Polycystic kidney disease 2-like 2 protein; May function as a subunit of a cation channel and play a role in fertilization; Belongs to the polycystin family
      
 0.686
TRAPPC9
Trafficking protein particle complex subunit 9; Functions as an activator of NF-kappa-B through increased phosphorylation of the IKK complex. May function in neuronal cells differentiation. May play a role in vesicular transport from endoplasmic reticulum to Golgi; Belongs to the NIBP family
      
 0.680
MACROD1
O-acetyl-ADP-ribose deacetylase MACROD1; Removes ADP-ribose from glutamate residues in proteins bearing a single ADP-ribose moiety. Inactive towards proteins bearing poly-ADP-ribose. Deacetylates O-acetyl-ADP ribose, a signaling molecule generated by the deacetylation of acetylated lysine residues in histones and other proteins. Plays a role in estrogen signaling. Binds to androgen receptor (AR) and amplifies the transactivation function of AR in response to androgen. May play an important role in carcinogenesis and/or progression of hormone-dependent cancers by feed-forward mechanism [...]
