STRINGSTRING
glpF6 protein (Lactobacillus plantarum) - STRING interaction network
"glpF6" - Glycerol uptake facilitator protein-like 6 in Lactobacillus plantarum
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

glpF6Glycerol uptake facilitator protein-like 6; Probable transporter that facilitates the transmembrane diffusion of an unknown substrate. Is not permeable to water, dihydroxyacetone, glycerol, urea, H(2)O(2) and D/L-lactic acid (216 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
gykA
Glycerol kinase 2; Key enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism. Catalyzes the phosphorylation of glycerol to yield sn- glycerol 3-phosphate (508 aa)
 
   
  0.868
glpK
Glycerol kinase 1; Key enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism. Catalyzes the phosphorylation of glycerol to yield sn- glycerol 3-phosphate; Belongs to the FGGY kinase family (505 aa)
 
   
  0.849
glpD
annotation not available (609 aa)

glpF1
D/L-lactic acid transporter; Transporter that facilitates the transmembrane diffusion of D/L-lactic acid. Is involved in the cellular racemization of lactate and lactate metabolism. The transported molecule is indeed lactic acid and not the lactate anion, in agreement with the assumption that, with very few exceptions, MIPs (major intrinsic proteins) only facilitate the transport of uncharged solutes. Also facilitates urea and H(2)O(2) diffusion across membranes, but is not permeable to water, glycerol and dihydroxyacetone; Belongs to the MIP/aquaporin (TC 1.A.8) family (238 aa)
   
     
  0.592
glpF4
Glycerol uptake facilitator protein 4; Transporter that facilitates the transmembrane diffusion of water, dihydroxyacetone, glycerol, urea, H(2)O(2) and D/L- lactic acid. Is involved in the cellular racemization of lactate and lactate metabolism, but has likely a more general physiological role. The transported molecule is indeed lactic acid and not the lactate anion, in agreement with the assumption that, with very few exceptions, MIPs (major intrinsic proteins) only facilitate the transport of uncharged solutes (238 aa)

dhaP
Glycerol uptake facilitator protein 2; Transporter that facilitates the transmembrane diffusion of water, dihydroxyacetone, glycerol and H(2)O(2). Is not permeable to urea and D/L-lactic acid (235 aa)
