STRINGSTRING
tps1 protein (Zea mays) - STRING interaction network
"tps1" - Acyclic sesquiterpene synthase in Zea mays
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

tps1Acyclic sesquiterpene synthase; Involved in the formation of (E)-beta-farnesene and (3E)-4,8-dimethyl-1,3,7-nonatriene, key signal molecules in induced plant defense mediated by the attraction of enemies of herbivores. In the presence of geranyl diphosphate, catalyzes the formation of the acyclic monoterpens (3R)-linalool and geraniol. However, the in vitro rate of sesquiterpene formation is about four times higher than the rate of monoterpene formation; Belongs to the terpene synthase family (590 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
tps6
(S)-beta-macrocarpene synthase; Involved in the biosynthesis of the bicyclic sesquiterpene (S)-beta-macrocarpene. Can use both geranyl diphosphate and farnesyl diphosphate as substrate, but not geranylgeranyl diphosphate. Produces mainly (S)-beta-macrocarpene, but also smaller amounts of beta-bisabolene and (E)-beta-farnesene when used with farnesyl diphosphate as substrate. In the presence of geranyl diphosphate, produces the acyclic monoterpenes beta- myrcene and linalool along with minor amounts of the cyclic compounds limonene, alpha-thujene, sabinene and alpha-terpinolene. May be [...] (565 aa)
