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

PRELPProlargin; May anchor basement membranes to the underlying connective tissue; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans (382 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
B4GALT2
Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 2; Responsible for the synthesis of complex-type N-linked oligosaccharides in many glycoproteins as well as the carbohydrate moieties of glycolipids. Can produce lactose; Beta 4-glycosyltransferases
     
 0.975
B4GALT3
Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 3; Responsible for the synthesis of complex-type N-linked oligosaccharides in many glycoproteins as well as the carbohydrate moieties of glycolipids; Beta 4-glycosyltransferases
     
 0.975
ACAN
Aggrecan core protein; This proteoglycan is a major component of extracellular matrix of cartilagenous tissues. A major function of this protein is to resist compression in cartilage. It binds avidly to hyaluronic acid via an N-terminal globular region; C-type lectin domain containing
   
 0.953
OGN
Osteoglycin (osteoinductive factor, mimecan); Mimecan; Induces bone formation in conjunction with TGF-beta-1 or TGF-beta-2; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans
   
 
0.937
B4GALT4
Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 4; Responsible for the synthesis of complex-type N-linked oligosaccharides in many glycoproteins as well as the carbohydrate moieties of glycolipids; Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 7 family
     
 0.936
FMOD
Fibromodulin; Affects the rate of fibrils formation. May have a primary role in collagen fibrillogenesis (By similarity); Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class II subfamily
  
 
0.926
LUM
Lumican; Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans; Belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class II subfamily
  
 
0.917
B4GALT1
Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 1; The Golgi complex form catalyzes the production of lactose in the lactating mammary gland and could also be responsible for the synthesis of complex-type N-linked oligosaccharides in many glycoproteins as well as the carbohydrate moieties of glycolipids; Beta 4-glycosyltransferases
     
 0.916
CHST1
Carbohydrate sulfotransferase 1; Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3'-phospho-5'-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of galactose (Gal) residues of keratan. Has a preference for sulfating keratan sulfate, but it also transfers sulfate to the unsulfated polymer. The sulfotransferase activity on sialyl LacNAc structures is much higher than the corresponding desialylated substrate, and only internal Gal residues are sulfated. May function in the sulfation of sialyl N- acetyllactosamine oligosaccharide chains attached to glycoproteins. [...]

OMD
Osteomodulin; May be implicated in biomineralization processes. Has a function in binding of osteoblasts via the alpha(V)beta(3)- integrin (By similarity); Small leucine rich repeat proteoglycans
