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
mhpFAcetaldehyde-coa dehydrogenase ii, nad-binding; Catalyzes the conversion of acetaldehyde to acetyl-CoA, using NAD(+) and coenzyme A. Is the final enzyme in the meta-cleavage pathway for the degradation of 3-phenylpropanoate. Functions as a chaperone protein for folding of MhpE (316 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
4-hyroxy-2-oxovalerate/4-hydroxy-2-oxopentanoic acid aldolase, class I; Catalyzes the retro-aldol cleavage of 4-hydroxy-2- oxopentanoate to pyruvate and acetaldehyde. Is involved in the meta- cleavage pathway for the degradation of 3-phenylpropanoate
2-hydroxypentadienoate hydratase; Catalyzes the conversion of 2-hydroxypentadienoic acid (enolic form of 2-oxopent-4-enoate) to 4-hydroxy-2-ketopentanoic acid
2,3-dihydroxyphenylpropionate 1,2-dioxygenase; Catalyzes the non-heme iron(II)-dependent oxidative cleavage of 2,3-dihydroxyphenylpropionic acid and 2,3-dihydroxicinnamic acid into 2-hydroxy-6-ketononadienedioate and 2-hydroxy-6- ketononatrienedioate, respectively
Putative 3-(3-hydroxyphenyl)propanoate/3-hydroxycinnamate hydroxylase; Catalyzes the insertion of one atom of molecular oxygen into position 2 of the phenyl ring of 3-(3-hydroxyphenyl)propionate (3-HPP) and hydroxycinnamic acid (3HCI)
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
2-hydroxy-6-ketonona-2,4-dienedioic acid hydrolase; Catalyzes the cleavage of the C5-C6 bond of 2-hydroxy-6- oxononadienedioate and 2-hydroxy-6-oxononatrienedioate, a dienol ring fission product of the bacterial meta-cleavage pathway for degradation of phenylpropionic acid. MhpC shows some selectivity for the carboxylate of the side chain
2-isopropylmalate synthase; Catalyzes the condensation of the acetyl group of acetyl-CoA with 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate (2-oxoisovalerate) to form 3-carboxy-3- hydroxy-4-methylpentanoate (2-isopropylmalate)
Putative aldehyde dehydrogenase, ethanolamine utilization protein; May act as an acetaldehyde dehydrogenase that converts acetaldehyde into acetyl-CoA
Phosphate acetyltransferase eutd; Ethanolamine utilization; homolog of Salmonella acetyl/butyryl P transferase; Protein involved in amine catabolic process
Ethanol-active dehydrogenase/acetaldehyde-active reductase; Preferred specificity is towards 1-propanol
