STRINGSTRING
XKS1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"XKS1" - Xylulokinase, converts D-xylulose and ATP to xylulose 5-phosphate and ADP 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

XKS1Xylulokinase, converts D-xylulose and ATP to xylulose 5-phosphate and ADP; rate limiting step in fermentation of xylulose; required for xylose fermentation by recombinant S. cerevisiae strains (600 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
XYL2
Xylitol dehydrogenase, converts xylitol to D-xylulose; expression induced by xylose, even though this pentose sugar is not well utilized by S. cerevisiae; null mutant has cell wall defect (356 aa)
   
 
  0.998
RPE1
D-ribulose-5-phosphate 3-epimerase, catalyzes a reaction in the non-oxidative part of the pentose-phosphate pathway; mutants are sensitive to oxidative stress; Catalyzes the reversible epimerization of D-ribulose 5- phosphate to D-xylulose 5-phosphate (By similarity). Involved in the protective response to oxidative stress (238 aa)
       
  0.974
GRE3
Aldose reductase involved in methylglyoxal, d-xylose, arabinose, and galactose metabolism; stress induced (osmotic, ionic, oxidative, heat shock, starvation and heavy metals); regulated by the HOG pathway; Aldose reductase with a broad substrate specificity. Reduces the cytotoxic compound methylglyoxal (MG) to acetol and (R)-lactaldehyde under stress conditions. MG is synthesized via a bypath of glycolysis from dihydroxyacetone phosphate and is believed to play a role in cell cycle regulation and stress adaptation (PubMed-11525399). In pentose-fermenting yeasts, aldose reductase cataly [...] (327 aa)
   
 
  0.965
TAL1
Transaldolase, enzyme in the non-oxidative pentose phosphate pathway; converts sedoheptulose 7-phosphate and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate to erythrose 4-phosphate and fructose 6-phosphate; Transaldolase is important for the balance of metabolites in the pentose-phosphate pathway (335 aa)
   
 
  0.940
TKL1
Transketolase, similar to Tkl2p; catalyzes conversion of xylulose-5-phosphate and ribose-5-phosphate to sedoheptulose-7-phosphate and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate in the pentose phosphate pathway; needed for synthesis of aromatic amino acids; Catalyzes the transfer of a two-carbon ketol group from a ketose donor to an aldose acceptor, via a covalent intermediate with the cofactor thiamine pyrophosphate (680 aa)
   
 
  0.919
SOR1
Sorbitol dehydrogenase; expression is induced in the presence of sorbitol or xylose (357 aa)
   
 
  0.895
SOR2
Sorbitol dehydrogenase; protein sequence is 99% identical to the Sor1p sorbitol dehydrogenase (357 aa)
   
 
  0.895
BDH1
NAD-dependent (R,R)-butanediol dehydrogenase, catalyzes oxidation of (R,R)-2,3-butanediol to (3R)-acetoin, oxidation of meso-butanediol to (3S)-acetoin, and reduction of acetoin; enhances use of 2,3-butanediol as an aerobic carbon source; NAD-dependent (R,R)-butanediol dehydrogenase which catalyzes oxidation of (R,R)-butane-2,3-diol to (3R)-acetoin, of meso-butanediol to (3S)-acetoin, and reduction of acetoin. Allows the use of 2,3-butanediol as an aerobic carbon source (382 aa)
   
 
  0.862
PRO1
Gamma-glutamyl kinase, catalyzes the first step in proline biosynthesis; Catalyzes the transfer of a phosphate group to glutamate to form glutamate 5-phosphate which rapidly cyclizes to 5- oxoproline (428 aa)
     
 
  0.862
BDH2
Putative medium-chain alcohol dehydrogenase with similarity to BDH1; transcription induced by constitutively active PDR1 and PDR3; Catalyzes the irreversible reduction of 2,3-butanediol to (S)-acetoin in the presence of NADH (417 aa)
