Co-purification, co-crystallization, Yeast2Hybrid, Genetic Interactions, etc ... as imported from primary sources.
Groups of genes that are frequently observed in each other's genomic neighborhood.
Known metabolic pathways, protein complexes, signal transduction pathways, etc ... from curated databases.
Genes that are sometimes fused into single open reading frames.
STRING allows inspection of the interaction evidence for any given network. Choose any of the viewers above (disabled if not applicable in your 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.
colored nodes: query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes: second shell of interactors
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.
from curated databases
Kaurene synthase2; Belongs to the terpene synthase family (590 aa)
Predicted Functional Partners:
Tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR)-like superfamily protein (523 aa)
(+)-neomenthol dehydrogenase; Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family (332 aa)
Cis-zeatin O-glucosyltransferase 1; Utilizes UDP-glucose as the sugar donor and catalyzes the formation of O-beta-D-glucosyl-cis-zeatin from cis-zeatin. May regulate active versus storage forms of cytokinins and could have an impact on seed growth; Belongs to the UDP-glycosyltransferase family (483 aa)
Exocyst subunit exo70 family protein G1 (675 aa)
annotation not available (911 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (240 aa)
annotation not available (106 aa)
Gibberellin 1617-oxidase1; Putative cytochrome P450 superfamily protein (391 aa)
annotation not available (790 aa)
Kaurene oxidase2; Putative cytochrome P450 superfamily protein (505 aa)
