CIT3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CIT3" - Dual specificity mitochondrial citrate and methylcitrate synthase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Gene Fusion
CIT3Dual specificity mitochondrial citrate and methylcitrate synthase; catalyzes the condensation of acetyl-CoA and oxaloacetate to form citrate and that of propionyl-CoA and oxaloacetate to form 2-methylcitrate; Dual specificity mitochondrial citrate and methylcitrate synthase with similar catalytic efficiency with both acetyl-CoA and propionyl-CoA (486 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mitochondrial malate dehydrogenase, catalyzes interconversion of malate and oxaloacetate; involved in the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle; phosphorylated (334 aa)
Mitochondrial protein that participates in respiration, induced by diauxic shift; homologous to E. coli PrpD, may take part in the conversion of 2-methylcitrate to 2-methylisocitrate; Catalyzes the stereospecific dehydration of (2S,3S)-2- methylcitrate (2-MC) to yield the cis isomer of 2-methyl- aconitate (516 aa)
Aconitase, required for the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle and also independently required for mitochondrial genome maintenance; phosphorylated; component of the mitochondrial nucleoid; mutation leads to glutamate auxotrophy; Catalyzes the isomerization of citrate to isocitrate via cis-aconitate, a step in the citric acid cycle. Can also provide minor contributions to the reversible dehydration of (R)- homocitrate to cis-homoaconitate, a step in the alpha-aminoadipate pathway for lysine biosynthesis. Plays also an essential role in mtDNA maintenance. May directly protect mtDNA from acc [...] (778 aa)
Cytoplasmic malate dehydrogenase, one of three isozymes that catalyze interconversion of malate and oxaloacetate; involved in the glyoxylate cycle and gluconeogenesis during growth on two-carbon compounds; interacts with Pck1p and Fbp1; The isoenzyme MDH2 may function primarily in the glyoxylate cycle (377 aa)
Dihydrolipoamide acetyltransferase component (E2) of pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, which catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA; The pyruvate dehydrogenase complex catalyzes the overall conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA and CO(2) (482 aa)
Peroxisomal malate dehydrogenase, catalyzes interconversion of malate and oxaloacetate; involved in the glyoxylate cycle (343 aa)
Putative mitochondrial aconitase isozyme; similarity to Aco1p, an aconitase required for the TCA cycle; expression induced during growth on glucose, by amino acid starvation via Gcn4p, and repressed on ethanol; Catalyzes the reversible dehydration of (R)-homocitrate to cis-homoaconitate, a step in the alpha-aminoadipate pathway for lysine biosynthesis (789 aa)
Acetyl-coA synthetase isoform which, along with Acs2p, is the nuclear source of acetyl-coA for histone acetylation; expressed during growth on nonfermentable carbon sources and under aerobic conditions; Catalyzes the production of acetyl-CoA. Provides the acetyl-CoA source for histone acetylation in the nucleus. "Aerobic" isozyme of acetyl-coenzyme A synthetase, which supports growth on nonfermentable carbon sources such as glycerol and ethanol. May be required for assimilation of ethanol and acetate (713 aa)
Malate synthase, enzyme of the glyoxylate cycle, involved in utilization of non-fermentable carbon sources; expression is subject to carbon catabolite repression; localizes in peroxisomes during growth in oleic acid medium; This isozyme is necessary for growth on acetate as sole C-source (554 aa)
Pyruvate carboxylase isoform, cytoplasmic enzyme that converts pyruvate to oxaloacetate; highly similar to isoform Pyc2p but differentially regulated; mutations in the human homolog are associated with lactic acidosis; Pyruvate carboxylase catalyzes a 2-step reaction, involving the ATP-dependent carboxylation of the covalently attached biotin in the first step and the transfer of the carboxyl group to pyruvate in the second (1178 aa)
