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

USH2AUsherin; Involved in hearing and vision; Fibronectin type III domain containing (5202 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
DFNB31
Whirlin; Necessary for elongation and maintenance of inner and outer hair cell stereocilia in the organ of Corti in the inner ear
    
 0.995
USH1C
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
    
 0.988
PDZD7
PDZ domain-containing protein 7; Deafness associated genes
   
 0.967
VEZT
Vezatin; Plays a pivotal role in the establishment of adherens junctions and their maintenance in adult life. In case of Listeria infection, promotes bacterial internalization by participating in myosin VIIa recruitment to the entry site; Belongs to the vezatin family
    
 0.941
USH1G
Usher syndrome type-1G protein; Required for normal development and maintenance of cochlear hair cell bundles. 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 hearing; Ankyrin repeat domain containing
   
 
 0.896
CLRN1
Clarin-1; May have a role in the excitatory ribbon synapse junctions between hair cells and cochlear ganglion cells and presumably also in analogous synapses within the retina; Belongs to the clarin family
      
 0.891
MYO7A
Unconventional myosin-VIIa; Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Their highly divergent tails bind to membranous compartments, which are then moved relative to actin filaments. In the retina, plays an important role in the renewal of the outer photoreceptor disks. Plays an important role in the distribution and migration of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) melanosomes and phagosomes, and in the regulation of opsin transport in retinal photoreceptors. In the inner ear, plays an important role in differenti [...]

PCDH15
Protocadherin-15; Calcium-dependent cell-adhesion protein. Essential for maintenance of normal retinal and cochlear function; Cadherin related
   
 
 0.865
CIB2
Calcium and integrin-binding family member 2; Calcium-binding protein critical for proper photoreceptor cell maintenance and function. Plays a role in intracellular calcium homeostasis by decreasing ATP-induced calcium release. May be involved in the mechanotransduction process (By similarity); Deafness associated genes
   
 
 0.856
LCA5
Lebercilin; Might be involved in minus end-directed microtubule transport
      
 0.853
