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

BTNL8Butyrophilin-like protein 8; May stimulate primary immune response. Acts on T-cell stimulated sub-optimally through the TCR/CD3 complex stimulating their proliferation and cytokine production; Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. BTN/MOG family (500 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ATRN
Attractin; Involved in the initial immune cell clustering during inflammatory response and may regulate chemotactic activity of chemokines. May play a role in melanocortin signaling pathways that regulate energy homeostasis and hair color. Low-affinity receptor for agouti (By similarity). Has a critical role in normal myelination in the central nervous system (By similarity); C-type lectin domain containing
    
   0.670
TMEM106B
Transmembrane protein 106B; Involved in dendrite morphogenesis and maintenance by regulating lysosomal trafficking via its interaction with MAP6. May act by inhibiting retrograde transport of lysosomes along dendrites. Required for dendrite branching; Belongs to the TMEM106 family
    
   0.437
ECHDC1
Ethylmalonyl-coa/methylmalonyl-coa decarboxylase; Ethylmalonyl-CoA decarboxylase; Decarboxylases ethylmalonyl-CoA decarboxylase, a potentially toxic metabolite, to form butyryl-CoA, suggesting it might be involved in metabolite proofreading. Also has methylmalonyl-CoA decarboxylase activity at lower level
   
  
 0.427
TFF1
Trefoil factor 1; Stabilizer of the mucous gel overlying the gastrointestinal mucosa that provides a physical barrier against various noxious agents. May inhibit the growth of calcium oxalate crystals in urine
    
 
 0.421
BTNL3
Butyrophilin-like protein 3; V-set domain containing; Butyrophilins
   
 
0.414
TMEM231
Transmembrane protein 231; Transmembrane component of the tectonic-like complex, a complex localized at the transition zone of primary cilia and acting as a barrier that prevents diffusion of transmembrane proteins between the cilia and plasma membranes. Required for ciliogenesis and sonic hedgehog/SHH signaling (By similarity)
    
   0.412
SEC14L6
Putative SEC14-like protein 6; SEC14 like lipid binding 6
   
  
 0.410
LCE1D
Late cornified envelope protein 1D; Precursors of the cornified envelope of the stratum corneum
