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

Score
RLN3Relaxin-3; May play a role in neuropeptide signaling processes. Ligand for LGR7, relaxin-3 receptor-1 (GPCR135) and relaxin-3 receptor-2 (GPCR142); Belongs to the insulin family (142 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
RXFP3
Relaxin-3 receptor 1; Receptor for RNL3/relaxin-3. Binding of the ligand inhibit cAMP accumulation; Relaxin family peptide receptors
     
 0.998
INSL5
Insulin-like peptide INSL5; May have a role in gut contractility or in thymic development and regulation. Activates RXFP4 with high potency and appears to be the endogenous ligand for this receptor; Belongs to the insulin family
    
 0.996
RXFP1
Relaxin receptor 1; Receptor for relaxins. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins leading to stimulation of adenylate cyclase and an increase of cAMP. Binding of the ligand may also activate a tyrosine kinase pathway that inhibits the activity of a phosphodiesterase that degrades cAMP; Relaxin family peptide receptors
    
 0.996
RXFP4
Relaxin-3 receptor 2; High affinity receptor for INSL5. Also acts as receptor for RLN3/relaxin-3, as well as bradykinin and kallidin. Binding of the ligand inhibit cAMP accumulation; Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family
    
 0.994
RLN2
Prorelaxin H2; Relaxin is an ovarian hormone that acts with estrogen to produce dilatation of the birth canal in many mammals. May be involved in remodeling of connective tissues during pregnancy, promoting growth of pubic ligaments and ripening of the cervix; Endogenous ligands
     
 0.970
RLN1
Prorelaxin H1; Relaxin is an ovarian hormone that acts with estrogen to produce dilatation of the birth canal in many mammals. May be involved in remodeling of connective tissues during pregnancy, promoting growth of pubic ligaments and ripening of the cervix; Belongs to the insulin family
     
 0.966
INSL3
Insulin-like 3; Seems to play a role in testicular function. May be a trophic hormone with a role in testicular descent in fetal life. Is a ligand for LGR8 receptor; Belongs to the insulin family
     
 0.958
RXFP2
Relaxin/insulin like family peptide receptor 2; Relaxin receptor 2; Receptor for relaxin. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins leading to stimulation of adenylate cyclase and an increase of cAMP. May also be a receptor for Leydig insulin-like peptide (INSL3)
     
 0.943
INSL6
Insulin-like peptide INSL6; May have a role in sperm development and fertilization
      
 0.820
NPS
Neuropeptide S; Modulates arousal and anxiety. May play an important anorexigenic role (By similarity). Binds to its receptor NPSR1 with nanomolar affinity to increase intracellular calcium concentrations; Endogenous ligands
