STRINGSTRING
MET8 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MET8" - Bifunctional dehydrogenase and ferrochelatase, involved in the biosynthesis of siroheme, a prosthetic group used by sulfite reductase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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

MET8Bifunctional dehydrogenase and ferrochelatase, involved in the biosynthesis of siroheme, a prosthetic group used by sulfite reductase; required for sulfate assimilation and methionine biosynthesis; Catalyzes the conversion of precorrin-2 into siroheme. This reaction consist of the NAD-dependent oxidation of precorrin- 2 into sirohydrochlorin and its subsequent ferrochelation into siroheme (274 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MET1
S-adenosyl-L-methionine uroporphyrinogen III transmethylase, involved in the biosynthesis of siroheme, a prosthetic group used by sulfite reductase; required for sulfate assimilation and methionine biosynthesis; Siroheme synthase involved in methionine biosynthesis (593 aa)
   
 
  0.996
MET16
3’-phosphoadenylsulfate reductase, reduces 3’-phosphoadenylyl sulfate to adenosine-3’,5’-bisphosphate and free sulfite using reduced thioredoxin as cosubstrate, involved in sulfate assimilation and methionine metabolism; The NADP dependent reduction of PAPS into sulfite involves thioredoxin which probably plays the role of a thiol carrier (261 aa)
   
   
  0.912
MET5
Sulfite reductase beta subunit, involved in amino acid biosynthesis, transcription repressed by methionine; Catalyzes the reduction of sulfite to sulfide, one of several activities required for the biosynthesis of L-cysteine from sulfate (1442 aa)
   
 
  0.860
MET10
Subunit alpha of assimilatory sulfite reductase, which converts sulfite into sulfide; This enzyme catalyzes the 6-electron reduction of sulfite to sulfide. This is one of several activities required for the biosynthesis of L-cysteine from sulfate (1035 aa)
   
   
  0.843
HEM4
Uroporphyrinogen III synthase, catalyzes the conversion of hydroxymethylbilane to uroporphyrinogen III, the fourth step in heme biosynthesis; deficiency in the human homolog can result in the disease congenital erythropoietic porphyria; Catalyzes cyclization of the linear tetrapyrrole, hydroxymethylbilane, to the macrocyclic uroporphyrinogen III (275 aa)

MET4
Leucine-zipper transcriptional activator, responsible for the regulation of the sulfur amino acid pathway, requires different combinations of the auxiliary factors Cbf1p, Met28p, Met31p and Met32p; Positive trans-acting factor capable of stimulating the transcription of the MET genes from the methionine biosynthetic pathway. MET4, MET28 and CBF1 are required for full induction of MET25 and MET16 gene transcription. MET4 controls as well the derepression of MET6. Required for the transcription of genes necessary for sulfur amino acid biosynthesis. Involved in the transcription activatio [...] (672 aa)
           
  0.829
MET17
O-acetyl homoserine-O-acetyl serine sulfhydrylase; required for Methionine and cysteine biosynthesis; Transforms O-acetylhomoserine into homocysteine and O- acetylserine into cysteine (444 aa)
         
  0.826
MET14
Adenylylsulfate kinase, required for sulfate assimilation and involved in methionine metabolism; Catalyzes the synthesis of activated sulfate (202 aa)
   
   
  0.784
UBA4
E1-like protein that activates Urm1p before urmylation; also acts in thiolation of the wobble base of cytoplasmic tRNAs by adenylating and then thiolating Urm1p; receives sulfur from Tum1p; Plays a central role in 2-thiolation of mcm(5)S(2)U at tRNA wobble positions of cytosolic tRNA(Lys), tRNA(Glu) and tRNA(Gln). Acts by mediating the C-terminal thiocarboxylation of sulfur carrier URM1. Its N-terminus first activates URM1 as acyl- adenylates (-COAMP), then the persulfide sulfur on the catalytic cysteine is transferred to URM1 to form thiocarboxylation (-COSH) of its C-terminus. The re [...] (440 aa)

HEM3
Porphobilinogen deaminase, catalyzes the conversion of 4-porphobilinogen to hydroxymethylbilane, the third step in heme biosynthesis; localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus; expression is regulated by Hap2p-Hap3p, but not by levels of heme; Tetrapolymerization of the monopyrrole PBG into the hydroxymethylbilane pre-uroporphyrinogen in several discrete steps (327 aa)
