STRING protein interaction network
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 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
protein homology

ispE4-(cytidine 5'-diphospho)-2-C-methyl-D-erythritol kinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of the position 2 hydroxy group of 4-diphosphocytidyl-2C-methyl-D-erythritol. (289 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
2-C-methyl-D-erythritol 4-phosphate cytidylyltransferase, nonmevalonate isoprenoid pathway; Catalyzes the formation of 4-diphosphocytidyl-2-C-methyl-D- erythritol from CTP and 2-C-methyl-D-erythritol 4-phosphate (MEP).
2-C-methyl-D-erythritol-2,4-cyclodiphosphate synthase; Involved in the biosynthesis of isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) and dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP), two major building blocks of isoprenoid compounds. Catalyzes the conversion of 4-diphosphocytidyl-2- C-methyl-D-erythritol 2-phosphate (CDP-ME2P) to 2-C-methyl-D-erythritol 2,4-cyclodiphosphate (ME-CPP) with a corresponding release of cytidine 5-monophosphate (CMP); Belongs to the IspF family.
4-hydroxy-3-methylbut-2-en-1-yl diphosphate synthase (flavodoxin); Converts 2C-methyl-D-erythritol 2,4-cyclodiphosphate (ME- 2,4cPP) into 1-hydroxy-2-methyl-2-(E)-butenyl 4-diphosphate. Belongs to the IspG family.
1-hydroxy-2-methyl-2-(E)-butenyl 4-diphosphate reductase; Catalyzes the conversion of 1-hydroxy-2-methyl-2-(E)-butenyl 4-diphosphate (HMBPP) into a mixture of isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) and dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP). Acts in the terminal step of the DOXP/MEP pathway for isoprenoid precursor biosynthesis. Belongs to the IspH family.
1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate reductoisomerase; Catalyzes the NADP-dependent rearrangement and reduction of 1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate (DXP) to 2-C-methyl-D-erythritol 4- phosphate (MEP); Belongs to the DXR family.
1-deoxyxylulose-5-phosphate synthase; Catalyzes the acyloin condensation reaction between C atoms 2 and 3 of pyruvate and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate to yield 1-deoxy-D- xylulose-5-phosphate (DXP); Belongs to the transketolase family. DXPS subfamily.
Dimethyladenosine 16S ribosomal RNA transferase; Specifically dimethylates two adjacent adenosines (A1518 and A1519) in the loop of a conserved hairpin near the 3'-end of 16S rRNA in the 30S particle. May play a critical role in biogenesis of 30S subunits; Belongs to the class I-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. rRNA adenine N(6)-methyltransferase family. RsmA subfamily.
Geranyltranstransferase; Evidence 2a: Function of homologous gene experimentally demonstrated in an other organism; enzyme.
Isopentenyl diphosphate isomerase; Involved in the biosynthesis of isoprenoids. Catalyzes the 1,3-allylic rearrangement of the homoallylic substrate isopentenyl (IPP) to its allylic isomer, dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP).
Transcriptional regulator of the purine biosynthesis operon; Controls the transcription of the pur operon for purine biosynthetic genes, binds to the control region of the operon. DNA binding is inhibited by 5-phosphoribosyl 1-pyrophosphate; Belongs to the purine/pyrimidine phosphoribosyltransferase family.
