STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

prpB2-methylisocitrate lyase; Involved in the catabolism of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) via the 2-methylcitrate cycle I (propionate degradation route). Catalyzes the thermodynamically favored C-C bond cleavage of (2R,3S)-2- methylisocitrate to yield pyruvate and succinate via an alpha-carboxy- carbanion intermediate (296 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
prpC
2-methylcitrate synthase; Involved in the catabolism of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) via the tricarboxylic acid (TCA)(acetyl degradation route) and via the 2-methylcitrate cycle I (propionate degradation route). Catalyzes the Claisen condensation of propionyl-CoA and oxaloacetate (OAA) to yield 2-methylcitrate (2-MC) and CoA. Also catalyzes the condensation of oxaloacetate with acetyl-CoA to yield citrate but with a lower specificity

prpD
2-methylcitrate dehydratase; Involved in the catabolism of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) via the tricarboxylic acid (TCA)(acetyl degradation route) and via the 2-methylcitrate cycle I (propionate degradation route). Catalyzes the dehydration of 2-methylcitrate (2-MC) to yield the cis isomer of 2- methyl-aconitate. It is also able to catalyze the dehydration of citrate and the hydration of cis-aconitate at a lower rate. Due to its broad substrate specificity, it seems to be responsible for the residual aconitase activity of the acnAB-null mutant

acnB
Aconitate hydratase 2 / 2-methylisocitrate dehydratase; Involved in the catabolism of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) via the tricarboxylic acid (TCA)(acetyl degradation route) and the 2- methylcitrate cycle I (propionate degradation route). Catalyzes the reversible isomerization of citrate to isocitrate via cis-aconitate. Also catalyzes the hydration of 2-methyl-cis-aconitate to yield (2R,3S)-2-methylisocitrate. The apo form of AcnB functions as a RNA- binding regulatory protein. During oxidative stress inactive AcnB apo- enzyme without iron sulfur clusters binds the acnB mRNA 3' UTRs [...]

aceB
Malate synthase A; Protein involved in glyoxylate cycle
 
 
 0.956
glcB
Malate synthase g; Involved in the glycolate utilization. Catalyzes the condensation and subsequent hydrolysis of acetyl-coenzyme A (acetyl- CoA) and glyoxylate to form malate and CoA
   
 
 0.948
prpE
Propionyl-coa synthetase; Catalyzes the synthesis of propionyl-CoA from propionate and CoA. Also converts acetate to acetyl-CoA but with a lower specific activity (By similarity)
 
  
 0.945
sucD
Succinyl-coa synthetase, nad(p)-binding, alpha subunit; Succinyl-CoA synthetase functions in the citric acid cycle (TCA), coupling the hydrolysis of succinyl-CoA to the synthesis of either ATP or GTP and thus represents the only step of substrate-level phosphorylation in the TCA. The alpha subunit of the enzyme binds the substrates coenzyme A and phosphate, while succinate binding and nucleotide specificity is provided by the beta subunit. Can use either ATP or GTP, but prefers ATP. It can also function in the other direction for anabolic purposes, and this may be particularly importan [...]
    
 0.918
acs
Acetyl-coa synthetase (amp-forming); Catalyzes the conversion of acetate into acetyl-CoA (AcCoA), an essential intermediate at the junction of anabolic and catabolic pathways. Acs undergoes a two-step reaction. In the first half reaction, Acs combines acetate with ATP to form acetyl-adenylate (AcAMP) intermediate. In the second half reaction, it can then transfer the acetyl group from AcAMP to the sulfhydryl group of CoA, forming the product AcCoA

sucC
Succinyl-CoA synthetase functions in the citric acid cycle (TCA), coupling the hydrolysis of succinyl-CoA to the synthesis of either ATP or GTP and thus represents the only step of substrate-level phosphorylation in the TCA. The beta subunit provides nucleotide specificity of the enzyme and binds the substrate succinate, while the binding sites for coenzyme A and phosphate are found in the alpha subunit. Can use either ATP or GTP, but prefers ATP. It can also function in the other direction for anabolic purposes, and this may be particularly important for providing succinyl-CoA during [...]

adhE
Acetaldehyde dehydrogenase / alcohol dehydrogenase; This enzyme has three activities: ADH, ACDH, and PFL- deactivase. In aerobic conditions it acts as a hydrogen peroxide scavenger. The PFL deactivase activity catalyzes the quenching of the pyruvate-formate-lyase catalyst in an iron, NAD, and CoA dependent reaction
