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
folDBifunctional protein FolD; Catalyzes the oxidation of 5,10- methylenetetrahydrofolate to 5,10-methenyltetrahydrofolate and then the hydrolysis of 5,10-methenyltetrahydrofolate to 10- formyltetrahydrofolate. This enzyme is specific for NADP (288 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Serine hydroxymethyltransferase; Catalyzes the reversible interconversion of serine and glycine with tetrahydrofolate (THF) serving as the one-carbon carrier. This reaction serves as the major source of one-carbon groups required for the biosynthesis of purines, thymidylate, methionine, and other important biomolecules. Also exhibits THF- independent aldolase activity toward beta-hydroxyamino acids, producing glycine and aldehydes, via a retro-aldol mechanism. Thus, is able to catalyze the cleavage of allothreonine and 3- phenylserine. Also catalyzes the irreversible conversion of 5,10 [...]
Aminomethyltransferase; The glycine cleavage system catalyzes the degradation of glycine
Bifunctional purine biosynthesis protein PurH; Protein involved in purine nucleotide biosynthetic process and nucleobase, nucleoside and nucleotide interconversion
Phosphoribosylglycinamide formyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of a formyl group from 10- formyltetrahydrofolate to 5-phospho-ribosyl-glycinamide (GAR), producing 5-phospho-ribosyl-N-formylglycinamide (FGAR) and tetrahydrofolate; Belongs to the GART family
Formyltetrahydrofolate deformylase; Catalyzes the hydrolysis of 10-formyltetrahydrofolate (formyl-FH4) to formate and tetrahydrofolate (FH4). Provides the major source of formate for the PurT-dependent synthesis of 5'- phosphoribosyl-N-formylglycinamide (FGAR) during aerobic growth. Has a role in regulating the one-carbon pool
Glycine dehydrogenase (decarboxylating); The glycine cleavage system catalyzes the degradation of glycine. The P protein binds the alpha-amino group of glycine through its pyridoxal phosphate cofactor; CO(2) is released and the remaining methylamine moiety is then transferred to the lipoamide cofactor of the H protein; Belongs to the GcvP family
Methionyl-tRNA formyltransferase; Attaches a formyl group to the free amino group of methionyl-tRNA(fMet). The formyl group appears to play a dual role in the initiator identity of N-formylmethionyl-tRNA by promoting its recognition by IF2 and preventing the misappropriation of this tRNA by the elongation apparatus; Belongs to the Fmt family
5-formyltetrahydrofolate cyclo-ligase; Involved in the removal of 5-formyltetrahydrofolate. In vitro, it is a potent inhibitor of various folate-dependent enzymes in the C1 metabolism network and in vivo it might function as a folate storage. 5-formyltetrahydrofolate is also used as an antifolate rescue agent in cancer chemotherapy. Catalyzes the irreversible ATP-dependent transformation of 5- formyltetrahydrofolate (5-CHO-THF) to form 5,10- methenyltetrahydrofolate (5,10-CH=THF). The reverse reaction is catalyzed by the serine hydroxymethyltransferase GlyA (SHMT)
Glycine cleavage system H protein; The glycine cleavage system catalyzes the degradation of glycine. The H protein shuttles the methylamine group of glycine from the P protein to the T protein
5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase; Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase required to generate the methyl groups necessary for methionine synthetase to convert homocysteine to methionine
