STRINGSTRING
LACS2 protein (Arabidopsis thaliana) - STRING interaction network
"LACS2" - Long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase 2 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

LACS2Long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase 2; Activation of long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. Acts in the cutin pathway. Preferentially uses palmitate, palmitoleate, oleate and linoleate. Required for repression of lateral root formation through its role in cutin biosynthesis and subsequent aerial tissues permeability (665 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CYP86A8
Cytochrome P450, family 86, subfamily A, polypeptide 8; Catalyzes the omega-hydroxylation of various fatty acids (FA). Acts on saturated and unsaturated fatty acids with chain lengths from C12 to C18. May be involved in the biosynthesis of cutin in the epidermis which prevents post-genital organ fusions. Hydroxylated FAs may be important for trichome differentiation, establishment of apical dominance and senescence (537 aa)
     
  0.968
CYP86A2
Cytochrome P450 86A2; Catalyzes the omega-hydroxylation of various fatty acids (FA). Acts on saturated and unsaturated fatty acids with chain lengths from C12 to C18. Plays a major role in the biosynthesis of extracellular lipids. Involved in the biosynthesis of hydroxylated fatty acids required for cutin biosynthesis, cuticle development and repression of bacterial type III gene expression (553 aa)
     
  0.946
BDG1
BODYGUARD1 (469 aa)
     
  0.942
FATB
Fatty acyl-ACP thioesterases B; Plays an essential role in chain termination during de novo fatty acid synthesis. Possesses high thioesterase activity for palmitoyl-ACP versus other acyl-ACPs. Substrate preference is 16-0 > 18-1 > 18-0 > 16-1. Plays an essential role in the supply of saturated fatty acids necessary for plant growth and seed development. Contributes to 16-0 production particularly in flowers. May be involved in the synthesis of long chain fatty acid (412 aa)
         
  0.925
CYP86A4
Cytochrome P450, family 86, subfamily A, polypeptide 4; Catalyzes the omega-hydroxylation of various fatty acids (FA). Acts on saturated and unsaturated fatty acids with chain lengths from C12 to C18. Involved in the biosynthesis of 16- hydroxypalmitate (554 aa)
     
  0.893
CER3
ECERIFERUM 3; Involved in cuticule membrane and wax production, and in the typhine and sopropollenin biosynthesis of pollen. Core components of a very-long-chain alkane synthesis complex. May be the fatty acid reductase responsible for aldehyde formation (632 aa)
     
   
  0.853
CYP86A7
Cytochrome P450, family 86, subfamily A, polypeptide 7; Catalyzes the omega-hydroxylation of various fatty acids (FA). Acts on saturated and unsaturated fatty acids with chain lengths from C12 to C18 (523 aa)
     
  0.849
AAE16
Acyl activating enzyme 16; May be involved in the activation of fatty acids to acyl-carrier-protein (722 aa)
   
   
0.839
CYP86A1
Cytochrome P450 86A1; Catalyzes the omega-hydroxylation of various fatty acids (FA). Acts on saturated and unsaturated fatty acids with chain lengths from C12 to C18 but not on hexadecane (513 aa)
     
  0.832
AAE15
Acyl-activating enzyme 15; Probably involved in the activation of fatty acids to acyl-carrier-protein prior to fatty acid elongation in plastids. Acts on medium- to long-chain fatty acids (727 aa)
