CAT8 protein (Arabidopsis thaliana) - STRING interaction network
"CAT8" - Encodes a member of the cationic amino acid transporter in Arabidopsis thaliana
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 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
protein homology

CAT8Encodes a member of the cationic amino acid transporter (CAT) subfamily of amino acid polyamine choline transporters. Does not mediate efficient uptake of basic amino acids in yeast or Xenopus systems but can transport neutral and acidic amino acid analogs (590 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:

Arabinose kinase; Arabinose kinase. Involved in the salvage pathway which converts free L-arabinose to UDP-L-arabinose. May play a role in arabinose transport (1039 aa)
Mevalonate/galactokinase family protein; Its function is described as kinase activity, phosphotransferase activity, alcohol group as acceptor, galactokinase activity, ATP binding; Involved in metabolic process, phosphorylation; Located in cytoplasm; Expressed in 6 plant structures; Expressed during 4 anthesis, petal differentiation and expansion stage; Contains the following InterPro domains- GHMP kinase (InterPro-IPR006204), Mevalonate/galactokinase (InterPro-IPR006206), Galactokinase galactose-binding domain (InterPro-IPR019539), Ribosomal protein S5 domain 2-type fold (InterPro-IPR0 [...] (964 aa)
Encodes nonfunctional amino acid transporter. AAP7 is the most distantly related member of the AAP family, a group of well characterized amino acid transporters within the ATF1 superfamily. Expression of this gene has not been detected with RNA gel blots or promoter GUS studies (467 aa)
Amino acid permease 6; Amino acid-proton symporter. Stereospecific transporter with a broad specificity for tryptophan, proline, and neutral and acidic amino acids. Have an affinity for aspartate in a physiological range. Involved in the uptake of amino acids diffusing out of the xylem tracheids into the xylem parenchyma (481 aa)
Encodes an amino acid transporter that transports aromatic and neutral amino acids, IAA, and 2,4-D. Expressed in all tissues with highest abundance in flowers and cauline leaves. a member of a small gene family in Arabidopsis and represents a new class of amino acid transporters; Belongs to the amino acid/polyamine transporter 2 family. Amino acid/auxin permease (AAAP) (TC 2.A.18.8) subfamily (432 aa)
Magnesium-chelatase subunit ChlI-2, chloroplastic; Involved in chlorophyll biosynthesis. Catalyzes the insertion of magnesium ion into protoporphyrin IX to yield Mg- protoporphyrin IX. The reaction takes place in two steps, with an ATP-dependent activation followed by an ATP-dependent chelation step. Possesses low affinity for ATP and may play a limited role in chlorophyll biosynthesis, and contributes to the assembly of the Mg-chelatase complex (418 aa)
Dihydrodipicolinate reductase-like protein CRR1, chloroplastic; Dihydrodipicolinate reductase (DHPR)-like protein that may not function as DHPR in lysine biosynthesis. Required for both formation and activity of the chloroplast NAD(P)H dehydrogenase (NDH) complex of the photosynthetic electron transport chain. May function in assembly or stabilization of the NDH complex (298 aa)
Amino acid permease 3; Amino acid-proton symporter. Stereospecific transporter with a broad specificity for GABA, tryptophan and both neutral and basic amino acids. High affinity transport of cationic amino acids (476 aa)
Proline transporter 1; Proline transporter that mediates proline and glycine betaine transport. May be involved in long-distance transport of proline and required for phloem loading, retrieval of proline leaking from the phloem, or in xylem-to-phloem transfer. When expressed in a heterologous system (yeast), imports D- and L- proline, glycine betaine and GABA across the plasma membrane. Has the same affinity for D- and L-proline; Belongs to the amino acid/polyamine transporter 2 family. Amino acid/auxin permease (AAAP) (TC 2.A.18.3) subfamily (442 aa)
