STRING protein interaction 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.
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 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
POX1Fatty-acyl coenzyme A oxidase; involved in the fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway; localized to the peroxisomal matrix (748 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase 2; Medium chain fatty acyl-CoA synthetase; activates imported fatty acids; accepts a wide range of fatty acid chain lengths with a preference for medium chains, C9:0-C13:0; localized to the peroxisome; comparative analysis suggests that a mitochondrially targeted form may result from translation starting at a non-canonical codon upstream of the annotated start codon
3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase, peroxisomal; 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase with broad chain length specificity; cleaves 3-ketoacyl-CoA into acyl-CoA and acetyl-CoA during beta-oxidation of fatty acids
Peroxisomal hydratase-dehydrogenase-epimerase; 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase and enoyl-CoA hydratase; multifunctional enzyme of the peroxisomal fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway; mutation is functionally complemented by human HSD17B4
Peroxisomal delta3,delta2-enoyl-CoA isomerase; hexameric protein that converts 3-hexenoyl-CoA to trans-2-hexenoyl-CoA, essential for the beta-oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids, oleate-induced; ECI1 has a paralog, DCI1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Peroxisomal 2,4-dienoyl-CoA reductase; auxiliary enzyme of fatty acid beta-oxidation; homodimeric enzyme required for growth and sporulation on petroselineate medium; expression induced during late sporulation and in the presence of oleate; Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family
Peroxisomal acyl-CoA thioesterase; likely to be involved in fatty acid oxidation rather than fatty acid synthesis; conserved protein also found in human peroxisomes; TES1 mRNA levels increase during growth on fatty acids; Belongs to the C/M/P thioester hydrolase family
Long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase 1; Long chain fatty acyl-CoA synthetase; activates fatty acids with a preference for C12:0-C16:0 chain lengths; role in the competitive import of long-chain fatty acids and sphingoid long-chain bases; accounts for most acyl-CoA synthetase activity; localizes to lipid particles and the plasma membrane; role in sphingolipid-to-glycerolipid metabolism; forms ER foci upon replication stress; faa1 faa4 double null complemented by any of human ACSBG1, ACSL1, 3, 4, 5, 6, SLC27A2, or 4
Cytosolic catalase T; has a role in protection from oxidative damage by hydrogen peroxide
Carnitine O-acetyltransferase, mitochondrial; Carnitine acetyl-CoA transferase; present in both mitochondria and peroxisomes; transfers activated acetyl groups to carnitine to form acetylcarnitine which can be shuttled across membranes
Probable electron transfer flavoprotein subunit alpha, mitochondrial; Putative ortholog of mammalian ETF-alpha; interacts with frataxin, Yfh1p; null mutant displays elevated frequency of mitochondrial genome loss; may have a role in oxidative stress response; ETF-alpha is an electron transfer flavoprotein complex subunit
