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
OTOGOtogelin; Glycoprotein specific to acellular membranes of the inner ear. May be required for the anchoring of the otoconial membranes and cupulae to the underlying neuroepithelia in the vestibule. May be involved in the organization and/or stabilization of the fibrillar network that compose the tectorial membrane in the cochlea. May play a role in mechanotransduction processes (By similarity) (2925 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Beta-tectorin; One of the major non-collagenous components of the tectorial membrane (By similarity). The tectorial membrane is an extracellular matrix of the inner ear that covers the neuroepithelium of the cochlea and contacts the stereocilia bundles of specialized sensory hair cells. Sound induces movement of these hair cells relative to the tectorial membrane, deflects the stereocilia and leads to fluctuations in hair-cell membrane potential, transducing sound into electrical signals
Otoancorin; May act as an adhesion molecule; Belongs to the stereocilin family
Otopetrin-1; Required for normal formation of otoconia in the inner ear. Inhibits P2Y purinoceptors. Modulates calcium homeostasis and influx of calcium in response to extracellular ATP (By similarity)
Harmonin; Anchoring/scaffolding protein that is a part of the functional network formed by USH1C, USH1G, CDH23 and MYO7A that mediates mechanotransduction in cochlear hair cells. Required for normal development and maintenance of cochlear hair cell bundles (By similarity). As part of the intermicrovillar adhesion complex/IMAC plays a role in brush border differentiation, controlling microvilli organization and length. Probably plays a central regulatory role in the assembly of the complex, recruiting CDHR2, CDHR5 and MYO7B to the microvilli tips; Deafness associated genes
Otoconin 90; It is unlikely that this protein has phospholipase A2 activity
Otoconin-90; It is unlikely that this protein has phospholipase A2 activity
Stereocilin; Essential to the formation of horizontal top connectors between outer hair cell stereocilia; Belongs to the stereocilin family
Otolin-1; C1q and TNF related ; Belongs to the OTOL1 family
Myosin heavy chain 1/2/3/4/8/13/7b/15; Myosin-15; Muscle contraction; Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Myosin family
Secretion-regulating guanine nucleotide exchange factor; Probable guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF), which may be involved in the secretion process
