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

HLA-EHLA class I histocompatibility antigen, alpha chain E; Preferably binds to a peptide derived from the signal sequence of most HLA-A, -B, -C and -G molecules; Belongs to the MHC class I family (358 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
KLRC2
NKG2-C type II integral membrane protein; Plays a role as a receptor for the recognition of MHC class I HLA-E molecules by NK cells and some cytotoxic T-cells; C-type lectin domain containing
    
 0.999
KLRD1
Natural killer cells antigen CD94; Plays a role as a receptor for the recognition of MHC class I HLA-E molecules by NK cells and some cytotoxic T-cells; C-type lectin domain containing
    
 0.999
KLRC1
NKG2-A/NKG2-B type II integral membrane protein; Plays a role as a receptor for the recognition of MHC class I HLA-E molecules by NK cells and some cytotoxic T-cells; C-type lectin domain containing
    
 0.999
B2M
Beta-2-microglobulin; Component of the class I major histocompatibility complex (MHC). Involved in the presentation of peptide antigens to the immune system. Exogenously applied M.tuberculosis EsxA or EsxA-EsxB (or EsxA expressed in host) binds B2M and decreases its export to the cell surface (total protein levels do not change), probably leading to defects in class I antigen presentation; Belongs to the beta-2-microglobulin family
   
 0.999
HLA-C
HLA class I histocompatibility antigen, Cw-7 alpha chain; Involved in the presentation of foreign antigens to the immune system; Belongs to the MHC class I family
   
0.977
HLA-F
HLA class I histocompatibility antigen, alpha chain F; Involved in the presentation of foreign antigens to the immune system; C1-set domain containing
   
0.976
HLA-DMA
Major histocompatibility complex, class ii, dm alpha; HLA class II histocompatibility antigen, DM alpha chain; Plays a critical role in catalyzing the release of class II-associated invariant chain peptide (CLIP) from newly synthesized MHC class II molecules and freeing the peptide binding site for acquisition of antigenic peptides. In B-cells, the interaction between HLA-DM and MHC class II molecules is regulated by HLA-DO

HLA-B
HLA class I histocompatibility antigen, B-7 alpha chain; Involved in the presentation of foreign antigens to the immune system; C1-set domain containing
   
0.962
HLA-DRA
Major histocompatibility complex, class ii, dr alpha; HLA class II histocompatibility antigen, DR alpha chain; Binds peptides derived from antigens that access the endocytic route of antigen presenting cells (APC) and presents them on the cell surface for recognition by the CD4 T-cells. The peptide binding cleft accommodates peptides of 10-30 residues. The peptides presented by MHC class II molecules are generated mostly by degradation of proteins that access the endocytic route, where they are processed by lysosomal proteases and other hydrolases. Exogenous antigens that have been end [...]

HLA-DPA1
Major histocompatibility complex, class ii, dp alpha 1; HLA class II histocompatibility antigen, DP alpha 1 chain; Binds peptides derived from antigens that access the endocytic route of antigen presenting cells (APC) and presents them on the cell surface for recognition by the CD4 T-cells. The peptide binding cleft accommodates peptides of 10-30 residues. The peptides presented by MHC class II molecules are generated mostly by degradation of proteins that access the endocytic route, where they are processed by lysosomal proteases and other hydrolases. Exogenous antigens that have been [...]
