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:
a 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

MvdDiphosphomevalonate decarboxylase; Performs the first committed step in the biosynthesis of isoprenes; Belongs to the diphosphomevalonate decarboxylase family. (401 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mvk
Mevalonate kinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of mevalonate to mevalonate 5- phosphate, a key step in isoprenoid and cholesterol biosynthesis. Belongs to the GHMP kinase family. Mevalonate kinase subfamily.
 
  
 0.994
Idi1
Isopentenyl-diphosphate Delta-isomerase 1; Catalyzes the 1,3-allylic rearrangement of the homoallylic substrate isopentenyl (IPP) to its highly electrophilic allylic isomer, dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP).
  
 
 0.993
Fdps
Farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase; Key enzyme in isoprenoid biosynthesis which catalyzes the formation of farnesyl diphosphate (FPP), a precursor for several classes of essential metabolites including sterols, dolichols, carotenoids, and ubiquinones. FPP also serves as substrate for protein farnesylation and geranylgeranylation. Catalyzes the sequential condensation of isopentenyl pyrophosphate with the allylic pyrophosphates, dimethylallyl pyrophosphate, and then with the resultant geranylpyrophosphate to the ultimate product farnesyl pyrophosphate (By similarity).
  
 0.993
Pmvk
Phosphomevalonate kinase.
   
 
 0.992
Ggps1
Geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate synthase; Catalyzes the trans-addition of the three molecules of IPP onto DMAPP to form geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate, an important precursor of carotenoids and geranylated proteins; Belongs to the FPP/GGPP synthase family.
  
 
 0.982
Idi2
Isopentenyl-diphosphate delta-isomerase 2; Catalyzes the 1,3-allylic rearrangement of the homoallylic substrate isopentenyl (IPP) to its highly electrophilic allylic isomer, dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP).
  
 
 0.979
Lss
Lanosterol synthase; Catalyzes the cyclization of (S)-2,3 oxidosqualene to lanosterol, a reaction that forms the sterol nucleus. Through the production of lanosterol may regulate lens protein aggregation and increase transparency.
   
 
 0.954
Hmgcs1
Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA synthase, cytoplasmic; This enzyme condenses acetyl-CoA with acetoacetyl-CoA to form HMG-CoA, which is the substrate for HMG-CoA reductase.
 
 
 0.953
Sqle
Squalene monooxygenase; Catalyzes the stereospecific oxidation of squalene to (S)- 2,3-epoxysqualene, and is considered to be a rate-limiting enzyme in steroid biosynthesis.
   
  
 0.944
Nsdhl
Sterol-4-alpha-carboxylate 3-dehydrogenase, decarboxylating; Involved in the sequential removal of two C-4 methyl groups in post-squalene cholesterol biosynthesis.
   
 
 0.919
