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

KIFAP3Kinesin-associated protein 3; Involved in tethering the chromosomes to the spindle pole and in chromosome movement. Binds to the tail domain of the KIF3A/KIF3B heterodimer to form a heterotrimeric KIF3 complex and may regulate the membrane binding of this complex (By similarity); Armadillo-like helical domain containing (792 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
KIF3B
Kinesin-like protein KIF3B; Involved in tethering the chromosomes to the spindle pole and in chromosome movement. Microtubule-based anterograde translocator for membranous organelles. Plus end-directed microtubule sliding activity in vitro (By similarity); Kinesins

KIF3A
Kinesin-like protein KIF3A; Microtubule-based anterograde translocator for membranous organelles. Plus end-directed microtubule sliding activity in vitro. Plays a role in primary cilia formation. Plays a role in centriole cohesion and subdistal appendage organization and function. Regulates the formation of the subdistal appendage via recruitement of DCTN1 to the centriole. Also required for ciliary basal feet formation and microtubule anchoring to mother centriole; Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Kinesin family. Kinesin II subfamily

KIF3C
Kinesin-like protein KIF3C; Microtubule-based anterograde translocator for membranous organelles; Kinesins
   
 0.998
IFT52
Intraflagellar transport protein 52 homolog; Involved in ciliogenesis as part of a complex involved in intraflagellar transport (IFT), the bi-directional movement of particles required for the assembly, maintenance and functioning of primary cilia. Required for the anterograde transport of IFT88
   
 
 0.908
DCTN1
Dynactin subunit 1; Plays a key role in dynein-mediated retrograde transport of vesicles and organelles along microtubules by recruiting and tethering dynein to microtubules. Binds to both dynein and microtubules providing a link between specific cargos, microtubules and dynein. Essential for targeting dynein to microtubule plus ends, recruiting dynein to membranous cargos and enhancing dynein processivity (the ability to move along a microtubule for a long distance without falling off the track). Can also act as a brake to slow the dynein motor during motility along the microtubule. C [...]

IFT57
Intraflagellar transport protein 57 homolog; Required for the formation of cilia. Plays an indirect role in sonic hedgehog signaling, cilia being required for all activity of the hedgehog pathway (By similarity). Has pro- apoptotic function via its interaction with HIP1, leading to recruit caspase-8 (CASP8) and trigger apoptosis. Has the ability to bind DNA sequence motif 5'-AAAGACATG-3' present in the promoter of caspase genes such as CASP1, CASP8 and CASP10, suggesting that it may act as a transcription regulator; however the relevance of such function remains unclear; Belongs to the [...]

IFT140
Intraflagellar transport protein 140 homolog; Component of the IFT complex A (IFT-A), a complex required for retrograde ciliary transport. Plays a pivotal role in proper development and function of ciliated cells. Involved in ciliogenesis and cilia maintenance. May play a role in ciliary assembly. Required for the development and maintenance of the outer segments of rod and cone photoreceptor cells. Plays a role in maintenance and the delivery of opsin to the outer segment of photoreceptor cells (By similarity); Intraflagellar transport proteins

KIF17
Kinesin-like protein KIF17; Transports vesicles containing N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor 2B along microtubules; Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Kinesin family
   
 0.901
IFT88
Intraflagellar transport protein 88 homolog; Involved in primary cilium biogenesis. Also involved in autophagy since it is required for trafficking of ATG16L and the expansion of the autophagic compartment; Intraflagellar transport proteins
