STRINGSTRING
MUC20 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"MUC20" - Mucin-20 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

MUC20Mucin-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 (709 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MUC15
Mucin-15; May play a role in the cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix; Mucins (361 aa)
         
  0.981
MUC4
Mucin-4; May play a role in tumor progression. Ability to promote tumor growth may be mainly due to repression of apoptosis as opposed to proliferation. Has anti-adhesive properties. Seems to alter cellular behavior through both anti-adhesive effects on cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix interactions and in its ability to act as an intramembrane ligand for ERBB2. Plays an important role in cell proliferation and differentiation of epithelial cells by inducing specific phosphorylation of ERBB2. The MUC4-ERBB2 complex causes site-specific phosphorylation of the ERBB2 ’Tyr-1248’. In [...] (5412 aa)

Mucin-13; Epithelial and hemopoietic transmembrane mucin that may play a role in cell signaling; Mucins (512 aa)
         
  0.979
MUC12
Mucin-12; Involved in epithelial cell protection, adhesion modulation, and signaling. May be involved in epithelial cell growth regulation. Stimulated by both cytokine TNF-alpha and TGF- beta in intestinal epithelium; Mucins (5335 aa)
         
  0.977
MUC21
Mucin-21; Mucin 21, cell surface associated; Mucins (566 aa)
         
  0.975
MUC16
Mucin-16; Thought to provide a protective, lubricating barrier against particles and infectious agents at mucosal surfaces; Mucins (14507 aa)
     
 
  0.975
MUC17
Mucin-17; Probably plays a role in maintaining homeostasis on mucosal surfaces; Mucins (4493 aa)
         
  0.972
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 (2439 aa)
         
  0.970
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 (3323 aa)
         
  0.969
MUC5B
Mucin-5B; Gel-forming mucin that is thought to contribute to the lubricating and viscoelastic properties of whole saliva and cervical mucus; Mucins (5762 aa)
         
  0.967
