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

KLF8Krueppel-like factor 8; Transcriptional repressor and activator. Binds to CACCC- boxes promoter elements. Also binds the GT-box of cyclin D1 promoter and mediates cell cycle progression at G(1) phase as a downstream target of focal adhesion kinase (FAK); Belongs to the Sp1 C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family (359 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CTBP2
C-terminal-binding protein 2; Corepressor targeting diverse transcription regulators. Functions in brown adipose tissue (BAT) differentiation (By similarity)
   
 
 0.912
CTBP1
C-terminal-binding protein 1; Corepressor targeting diverse transcription regulators such as GLIS2 or BCL6. Has dehydrogenase activity. Involved in controlling the equilibrium between tubular and stacked structures in the Golgi complex. Functions in brown adipose tissue (BAT) differentiation; Belongs to the D-isomer specific 2-hydroxyacid dehydrogenase family
   
 
 0.778
TCF7L1
Transcription factor 7-like 1; Participates in the Wnt signaling pathway. Binds to DNA and acts as a repressor in the absence of CTNNB1, and as an activator in its presence. Necessary for the terminal differentiation of epidermal cells, the formation of keratohyalin granules and the development of the barrier function of the epidermis (By similarity). Down-regulates NQO1, leading to increased mitomycin c resistance; TCF/LEF transcription factor family
    
 
 0.610
KDM5B
Lysine-specific demethylase 5B; Histone demethylase that demethylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Does not demethylate histone H3 'Lys-9' or H3 'Lys-27'. Demethylates trimethylated, dimethylated and monomethylated H3 'Lys-4'. Acts as a transcriptional corepressor for FOXG1B and PAX9. Favors the proliferation of breast cancer cells by repressing tumor suppressor genes such as BRCA1 and HOXA5. In contrast, may act as a tumor suppressor for melanoma. Represses the CLOCK-ARNTL/BMAL1 heterodimer-mediated transcriptional activation of the core clock [...]
    
 
 0.594
ETV2
ETS translocation variant 2; Binds to DNA sequences containing the consensus pentanucleotide 5'-CGGA[AT]-3'; ETS transcription factor family
    
 
 0.573
ZNF219
Zinc finger protein 219; Transcriptional regulator. Recognizes and binds 2 copies of the core DNA sequence motif 5'-GGGGG-3'. Binds to the HMGN1 promoter and may repress HMGN1 expression. Regulates SNCA expression in primary cortical neurons. Binds to the COL2A1 promoter and activates COL2A1 expression, as part of a complex with SOX9 (By similarity). Plays a role in chondrocyte differentiation (By similarity); Belongs to the krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family
      
 0.570
CD151
CD151 antigen; Essential for the proper assembly of the glomerular and tubular basement membranes in kidney; Blood group antigens
    
 
 0.561
MXD1
Max dimerization protein 1; Transcriptional repressor. MAD binds with MAX to form a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein complex which recognizes the core sequence 5'-CAC[GA]TG-3'. MAD thus antagonizes MYC transcriptional activity by competing for MAX; Basic helix-loop-helix proteins
    
 
 0.557
NKX3-2
Homeobox protein Nkx-3.2; Transcriptional repressor that acts as a negative regulator of chondrocyte maturation. PLays a role in distal stomach development; required for proper antral-pyloric morphogenesis and development of antral-type epithelium. In concert with GSC, defines the structural components of the middle ear; required for tympanic ring and gonium development and in the regulation of the width of the malleus (By similarity); Belongs to the NK-3 homeobox family
    
 
 0.539
FOXC2
Forkhead box protein C2; Transcriptional activator. Might be involved in the formation of special mesenchymal tissues; Forkhead boxes
    
 
 0.533
