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

COL8A2Collagen alpha-2(VIII) chain; Macromolecular component of the subendothelium. Major component of the Descemet's membrane (basement membrane) of corneal endothelial cells. Also component of the endothelia of blood vessels. Necessary for migration and proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and thus, has a potential role in the maintenance of vessel wall integrity and structure, in particular in atherogenesis (By similarity); Collagens (703 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
P4HA2
Prolyl 4-hydroxylase subunit alpha-2; Catalyzes the post-translational formation of 4- hydroxyproline in -Xaa-Pro-Gly- sequences in collagens and other proteins
    
 0.943
P4HA3
Prolyl 4-hydroxylase subunit alpha-3; Catalyzes the post-translational formation of 4- hydroxyproline in -Xaa-Pro-Gly- sequences in collagens and other proteins; Belongs to the P4HA family
   
 
 0.909
P4HA1
Prolyl 4-hydroxylase subunit alpha-1; Catalyzes the post-translational formation of 4- hydroxyproline in -Xaa-Pro-Gly- sequences in collagens and other proteins; Belongs to the P4HA family
     
 0.906
VWF
Von Willebrand factor; Important in the maintenance of hemostasis, it promotes adhesion of platelets to the sites of vascular injury by forming a molecular bridge between sub-endothelial collagen matrix and platelet-surface receptor complex GPIb-IX-V. Also acts as a chaperone for coagulation factor VIII, delivering it to the site of injury, stabilizing its heterodimeric structure and protecting it from premature clearance from plasma; Endogenous ligands

SLC4A11
Sodium bicarbonate transporter-like protein 11; Transporter which plays an important role in sodium- mediated fluid transport in different organs. Prevents severe morphological changes of the cornea caused by increased sodium chloride concentrations in the stroma. In the inner ear, is involved in transport of potassium through the fibrocyte layer to the stria vascularis and is essential for the generation of the endocochlear potential but not for regulation of potassium concentrations in the endolymph. In the kidney, is essential for urinary concentration, mediates a sodium flux into t [...]

COLGALT2
Procollagen galactosyltransferase 2; Beta-galactosyltransferase that transfers beta-galactose to hydroxylysine residues of collagen; Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 25 family
    
 0.809
COL2A1
Collagen alpha-1(II) chain; Type II collagen is specific for cartilaginous tissues. It is essential for the normal embryonic development of the skeleton, for linear growth and for the ability of cartilage to resist compressive forces
  
0.781
COL4A5
Collagen alpha-5(IV) chain; Type IV collagen is the major structural component of glomerular basement membranes (GBM), forming a 'chicken-wire' meshwork together with laminins, proteoglycans and entactin/nidogen; Collagens
  
0.773
ZEB1
Zinc finger E-box-binding homeobox 1; Acts as a transcriptional repressor. Inhibits interleukin-2 (IL-2) gene expression. Enhances or represses the promoter activity of the ATP1A1 gene depending on the quantity of cDNA and on the cell type. Represses E-cadherin promoter and induces an epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) by recruiting SMARCA4/BRG1. Represses BCL6 transcription in the presence of the corepressor CTBP1. Positively regulates neuronal differentiation. Represses RCOR1 transcription activation during neurogenesis. Represses transcription by binding to the E box (5'-CANNTG [...]

VSX1
Visual system homeobox 1; Binds to the 37-bp core of the locus control region (LCR) of the red/green visual pigment gene cluster. May regulate the activity of the LCR and the cone opsin genes at earlier stages of development; Belongs to the paired homeobox family
