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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
aroLShikimate kinase 2; Catalyzes the specific phosphorylation of the 3-hydroxyl group of shikimic acid using ATP as a cosubstrate; Belongs to the shikimate kinase family. AroL subfamily (174 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Shikimate dehydrogenase (NADP(+)); Involved in the biosynthesis of the chorismate, which leads to the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids. Catalyzes the reversible NADPH linked reduction of 3-dehydroshikimate (DHSA) to yield shikimate (SA). It displays no activity in the presence of NAD
3-phosphoshikimate 1-carboxyvinyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of the enolpyruvyl moiety of phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to the 5-hydroxyl of shikimate-3- phosphate (S3P) to produce enolpyruvyl shikimate-3-phosphate and inorganic phosphate
3-dehydroquinate synthase; Catalyzes the conversion of 3-deoxy-D-arabino- heptulosonate 7-phosphate (DAHP) to dehydroquinate (DHQ)
Quinate/shikimate dehydrogenase; The actual biological function of YdiB remains unclear, nor is it known whether 3-dehydroshikimate or quinate represents the natural substrate. Catalyzes the reversible NAD-dependent reduction of both 3-dehydroshikimate (DHSA) and 3-dehydroquinate to yield shikimate (SA) and quinate, respectively. It can use both NAD or NADP for catalysis, however it has higher catalytic efficiency with NAD
Protein AroM; This protein of unknown function is encoded by a gene that cotranscribes with the aroL gene, which codes for shikimate kinase II
T-protein; Chorismate mutase-T and prephenate dehydrogenase; Protein involved in L-phenylalanine biosynthetic process and tyrosine biosynthetic process
Phospho-2-dehydro-3-deoxyheptonate aldolase, Tyr-sensitive; Stereospecific condensation of phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) and D-erythrose-4-phosphate (E4P) giving rise to 3-deoxy-D- arabino-heptulosonate-7-phosphate (DAHP); Belongs to the class-I DAHP synthase family
P-protein; Catalyzes the Claisen rearrangement of chorismate to prephenate and the decarboxylation/dehydration of prephenate to phenylpyruvate
Transcriptional regulatory protein TyrR; Involved in transcriptional regulation of aromatic amino acid biosynthesis and transport. Modulates the expression of at least 8 unlinked operons. Seven of these operons are regulated in response to changes in the concentration of the three aromatic amino acids (phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan). These amino acids are suggested to act as co-effectors which bind to the TyrR protein to form an active regulatory protein. In most cases TyrR causes negative regulation, but positive effects on the tyrP gene have been observed at high phenylalani [...]
Shikimate kinase 1; Catalyzes the specific phosphorylation of the 3-hydroxyl group of shikimic acid using ATP as a cosubstrate; Belongs to the shikimate kinase family
