STRINGSTRING
KCS5 protein (Arabidopsis thaliana) - STRING interaction network
"KCS5" - 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 5 in Arabidopsis thaliana
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

KCS53-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 5; Mediates mostly the synthesis of VLCFAs from 26 to 30 carbons in length (e.g. C20-1, C26, C28, C30) (492 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
KCR1
Beta-ketoacyl reductase 1; Beta-ketoacyl-coenzyme A reductase required for the elongation of fatty acids precursors of sphingolipids, triacylglycerols, cuticular waxes and suberin. Responsible for the first reduction step in very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) synthesis. Decreased expression of KCR1 (RNAi) leads to plants with fused vegetative and reproductive organs, and abnormal trichome, epidermal cell and root morphology. Cannot be complemented by KCR2 (318 aa)
         
  0.959
CER2
ECERIFERUM 2; Involved in biosynthesis of the epicuticular wax. Plays a role in very-long-chain fatty acid (VLCFA) biosynthesis and is required for C28 fatty acid elongation in stem. Despite its classification as a BAHD acyltransferase based on sequence homology, CER2 does not seem to share the catalytic mechanism of the members of the BAHD family (421 aa)
     
   
  0.738
AT3G06460
GNS1/SUR4 membrane-like protein (298 aa)
           
  0.670
AT1G04420
NAD(P)-linked oxidoreductase-like protein (412 aa)
           
  0.670
AT5G02890
HXXXD-type acyl-transferase-like protein (353 aa)
     
   
  0.668
AT4G13840
HXXXD-type acyl-transferase-like protein; Involved in biosynthesis of the epicuticular wax. Plays a role in very-long-chain fatty acid (VLCFA) biosynthesis and is required for C30 fatty acid elongation in leaf. Despite its classification as a BAHD acyltransferase based on sequence homology, CER26 does not seem to share the catalytic mechanism of the members of the BAHD family (428 aa)
           
  0.636
CER1
CER1 protein; Aldehyde decarbonylase involved in the conversion of aldehydes to alkanes. Core component of a very-long-chain alkane synthesis complex. Involved in epicuticular wax biosynthesis and pollen fertility (630 aa)
           
  0.632
ELO1
ELONGATA 1 (373 aa)
           
  0.631
AT1G15350
Uncharacterized protein (154 aa)
           
  0.605
AT5G59770
Protein-tyrosine phosphatase-like, PTPLA (272 aa)
           
  0.603
