STRING protein interaction network
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 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
protein homology

ASTE1Protein asteroid homolog 1; Possible role in EGF receptor signaling (704 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
TATA box-binding protein-associated factor RNA polymerase I subunit B; Component of RNA polymerase I core factor complex that acts as a GTF2B/TFIIB-like factor and plays a key role in multiple steps during transcription initiation such as pre-initiation complex (PIC) assembly and postpolymerase recruitment events in polymerase I (Pol I) transcription. Binds rDNA promoters and plays a role in Pol I recruitment as a component of the SL1/TIF-IB complex and, possibly, directly through its interaction with RRN3; Belongs to the RRN7/TAF1B family
Coiled-coil domain-containing protein 168; Coiled-coil domain containing 168
Basic helix-loop-helix domain-containing protein USF3; Involved in the negative regulation of epithelial- mesenchymal transition, the process by which epithelial cells lose their polarity and adhesion properties to become mesenchymal cells with enhanced migration and invasive properties
Transforming growth factor beta receptor 2; TGF-beta receptor type-2; Transmembrane serine/threonine kinase forming with the TGF-beta type I serine/threonine kinase receptor, TGFBR1, the non- promiscuous receptor for the TGF-beta cytokines TGFB1, TGFB2 and TGFB3. Transduces the TGFB1, TGFB2 and TGFB3 signal from the cell surface to the cytoplasm and is thus regulating a plethora of physiological and pathological processes including cell cycle arrest in epithelial and hematopoietic cells, control of mesenchymal cell proliferation and differentiation, wound healing, extracellular matrix [...]
Activin receptor type-2A; On ligand binding, forms a receptor complex consisting of two type II and two type I transmembrane serine/threonine kinases. Type II receptors phosphorylate and activate type I receptors which autophosphorylate, then bind and activate SMAD transcriptional regulators. Receptor for activin A, activin B and inhibin A. Mediates induction of adipogenesis by GDF6 (By similarity); Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family. TGFB receptor subfamily
Solute carrier family 22 member 9; Sodium-independent organic anion transporter which exhibits high specificity for sulfated conjugates of xenobiotics and steroid hormones. It is also specifically activated by 3 to 5 carbons-containing short-chain fatty acids/SCFAs, including propionate, butyrate and valerate. May operate the exchange of sulfated organic components against short-chain fatty acids/SCFAs at the sinusoidal membrane of hepatocytes; Solute carriers
POP4 homolog, ribonuclease P/MRP subunit; Ribonuclease P protein subunit p29; Part of ribonuclease P, a protein complex that generates mature tRNA molecules by cleaving their 5'-ends. May function with RPP38 to coordinate the nucleolar targeting and/or assembly of RNase P
DNA mismatch repair protein Msh3; Component of the post-replicative DNA mismatch repair system (MMR). Heterodimerizes with MSH2 to form MutS beta which binds to DNA mismatches thereby initiating DNA repair. When bound, the MutS beta heterodimer bends the DNA helix and shields approximately 20 base pairs. MutS beta recognizes large insertion- deletion loops (IDL) up to 13 nucleotides long. After mismatch binding, forms a ternary complex with the MutL alpha heterodimer, which is thought to be responsible for directing the downstream MMR events, including strand discrimination, excision, [...]
Phospholipid scramblase family member 5; Belongs to the phospholipid scramblase family
Caspase-5; Mediator of programmed cell death (apoptosis). During non-canonical inflammasome activation, cuts MB21D1 and may play a role in the regulation of antiviral innate immune activation; Caspase recruitment domain containing
