STRING protein interaction network
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 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
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
LY6KLymphocyte antigen 6K; Required for sperm migration into the oviduct and male fertility by controlling binding of sperm to zona pellucida (By similarity). May play a role in cell growth; LY6/PLAUR domain containing (165 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Testis-expressed protein 101; Plays a role in fertilization by controlling binding of sperm to zona pellucida and migration of spermatozoa into the oviduct (By similarity). May play a role in signal transduction and promote protein tyrosine phosphorylation (By similarity); LY6/PLAUR domain containing
Secreted Ly-6/uPAR-related protein 1; Has an antitumor activity. Was found to be a marker of late differentiation of the skin. Implicated in maintaining the physiological and structural integrity of the keratinocyte layers of the skin. In vitro down-regulates keratinocyte proliferation; the function may involve the proposed role as modulator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) activity. In vitro inhibits alpha-7-dependent nAChR currents in an allosteric manner. In T cells may be involved in regulation of intracellular Ca(2+) signaling. Seems to have a immunomodulatory functio [...]
Lymphocyte antigen 6H; Believed to act as a modulator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) activity. In vitro inhibits alpha-3:beta-4-containing nAChRs maximum response. May play a role in the intracellular trafficking of alpha-7-containing nAChRs and may inhibit their expression at the cell surface. Seems to inhibit alpha-7/CHRNA7 signaling in hippocampal neurons; LY6/PLAUR domain containing
Ly6/PLAUR domain-containing protein 2; LY6/PLAUR domain containing 2
Ly6/PLAUR domain-containing protein 6; Acts as a modulator of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) function in the brain. Inhibits nicotine-induced Ca(2+) influx through nAChRs. Acts as a positive regulator of Wnt/beta-catenin signaling (By similarity); LY6/PLAUR domain containing
Protein-tyrosine sulfotransferase 2; Catalyzes the O-sulfation of tyrosine residues within acidic motifs of polypeptides, using 3'-phosphoadenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as cosubstrate; Sulfotransferases, membrane bound
DEP domain-containing protein 1A; May be involved in transcriptional regulation as a transcriptional corepressor. The DEPDC1A-ZNF224 complex may play a critical role in bladder carcinogenesis by repressing the transcription of the A20 gene, leading to transport of NF-KB protein into the nucleus, resulting in suppression of apoptosis of bladder cancer cells
Disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 29; May be involved in spermatogenesis and fertilization. Seems to be a non catalytic metalloprotease-like protein; ADAM metallopeptidase domain containing
Serine/threonine-protein kinase ttk/mps1; Dual specificity protein kinase TTK; Phosphorylates proteins on serine, threonine, and tyrosine. Probably associated with cell proliferation. Essential for chromosome alignment by enhancing AURKB activity (via direct CDCA8 phosphorylation) at the centromere, and for the mitotic checkpoint
Kinetochore protein Nuf2; Acts as a component of the essential kinetochore- associated NDC80 complex, which is required for chromosome segregation and spindle checkpoint activity. Required for kinetochore integrity and the organization of stable microtubule binding sites in the outer plate of the kinetochore. The NDC80 complex synergistically enhances the affinity of the SKA1 complex for microtubules and may allow the NDC80 complex to track depolymerizing microtubules
