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
pepDDipeptidase with broad substrate specificity. Requires dipeptide substrates with an unblocked N-terminus and the amino group in the alpha or beta position. Non-protein amino acids and proline are not accepted in the C-terminal position, whereas some dipeptide amides and formyl amino acids are hydrolyzed. Also shows cysteinylglycinase activity, which is sufficient for E.coli to utilize cysteinylglycine as a cysteine source (485 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
L-ala-d/l-glu epimerase; Catalyzes the epimerization of L-Ala-D-Glu to L-Ala-L-Glu and has a role in the recycling of the murein peptide, of which L-Ala-D-Glu is a component. Is also able to catalyze the reverse reaction and the epimerization of all the L-Ala-X dipeptides, except L-Ala-L-Arg, L-Ala- L-Lys and L-Ala-L-Pro. Is also active with L-Gly-L-Glu, L-Phe-L-Glu, and L-Ser-L-Glu, but not with L-Glu-L-Glu, L-Lys-L-Glu, L-Pro-L-Glu, L- Lys-L-Ala, or D-Ala-D-Ala
Leucyl aminopeptidase; Probably involved in the processing and regular turnover of intracellular proteins . Catalyzes the removal of unsubstituted N-terminal amino acids from various peptides. Required for plasmid ColE1 site-specific recombination but not in its aminopeptidase activity. Could act as a structural component of the putative nucleoprotein complex in which the Xer recombination reaction takes place
Aminopeptidase N is involved in the degradation of intracellular peptides generated by protein breakdown during normal growth as well as in response to nutrient starvation
Gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase / glutathione hydrolase; Cleaves the gamma-glutamyl bond of periplasmic glutathione (gamma-Glu-Cys-Gly), glutathione conjugates, and other gamma-glutamyl compounds. The metabolism of glutathione releases free glutamate and the dipeptide cysteinyl-glycine, which is hydrolyzed to cysteine and glycine by dipeptidases; it may function in amino acid uptake/salvage, or possibly in peptidoglycan linkage. Catalyzes the hydrolysis and transpeptidation of many gamma-glutamyl compounds (including some D- gamma-glutamyl substrates), with a preference for basic and arom [...]
Belongs to the glutamate--cysteine ligase type 1 family. Type 1 subfamily
Glutathione synthetase; Protein involved in glutathione biosynthetic process
Glutamate---cysteine ligase / carboxylate-amine ligase; ATP-dependent carboxylate-amine ligase which exhibits weak glutamate--cysteine ligase activity. However, because of the low catalytic rate, the question remains whether L-cysteine is the actual biological substrate
Glutathione-specific gamma-glutamylcyclotransferase; Catalyzes the cleavage of glutathione into 5-oxo-L-proline and a Cys-Gly dipeptide. Acts specifically on glutathione, but not on other gamma-glutamyl peptides
Nadp(+)-dependent glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the oxidation of glucose 6-phosphate to 6- phosphogluconolactone
6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, decarboxylating; Catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of 6-phosphogluconate to ribulose 5-phosphate and CO(2), with concomitant reduction of NADP to NADPH
