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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

LYNX1Ly-6/neurotoxin-like protein 1; Acts in different tissues through interaction to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs). The proposed role as modulator of nAChR activity seems to be dependent on the nAChR subtype and stoichiometry, and to involve an effect on nAChR trafficking and its cell surface expression, and on single channel properties of the nAChR inserted in the plasma membrane. Modulates functional properties of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) to prevent excessive excitation, and hence neurodegeneration. Enhances desensitization by increasing both the rate and e [...] (131 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CHRNA7
Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-7; After binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane. The channel is blocked by alpha-bungarotoxin; Cholinergic receptors nicotinic subunits

SLURP1
Secreted Ly-6/uPAR-related protein 1; Has an antitumor activity. Was found to be a marker of late differentiation of the skin. Implicated in maintaining the physiological and structural integrity of the keratinocyte layers of the skin. In vitro down-regulates keratinocyte proliferation; the function may involve the proposed role as modulator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) activity. In vitro inhibits alpha-7-dependent nAChR currents in an allosteric manner. In T cells may be involved in regulation of intracellular Ca(2+) signaling. Seems to have a immunomodulatory functio [...]

CHRNA4
Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-4; After binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane permeable to sodium ions; Cholinergic receptors nicotinic subunits
   
  
 0.708
LY6H
Lymphocyte antigen 6H; Believed to act as a modulator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) activity. In vitro inhibits alpha-3:beta-4-containing nAChRs maximum response. May play a role in the intracellular trafficking of alpha-7-containing nAChRs and may inhibit their expression at the cell surface. Seems to inhibit alpha-7/CHRNA7 signaling in hippocampal neurons; LY6/PLAUR domain containing

LYPD2
LY6/PLAUR domain containing 2
      
 0.669
GML
Glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol-anchored molecule-like protein; May play a role in the apoptotic pathway or cell-cycle regulation induced by p53/TP53 after DNA damage; LY6/PLAUR domain containing
   
  
 0.550
LY6K
Lymphocyte antigen 6K; Required for sperm migration into the oviduct and male fertility by controlling binding of sperm to zona pellucida (By similarity). May play a role in cell growth; LY6/PLAUR domain containing
      
 0.543
LYPD6
Ly6/PLAUR domain-containing protein 6; Acts as a modulator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) function in the brain. Inhibits nicotine-induced Ca(2+) influx through nAChRs. Acts as a positive regulator of Wnt/beta-catenin signaling (By similarity); LY6/PLAUR domain containing
      
 0.537
CHRNA1
Acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha; After binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane; Cholinergic receptors nicotinic subunits
      
 0.529
LYPD1
Ly6/PLAUR domain-containing protein 1; Believed to act as a modulator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) activity. In vitro increases receptor desensitization and decreases affinity for ACh of alpha- 4:beta-2-containing nAChRs. May play a role in the intracellular trafficking of alpha-4:beta-2 and alpha-7-containing nAChRs and may inhibit their expression at the cell surface. May be involved in the control of anxiety; LY6/PLAUR domain containing
