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

sucCSuccinyl-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 [...] (388 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
sdhA
Succinate dehydrogenase / fumarate reductase, flavoprotein subunit; Two distinct, membrane-bound, FAD-containing enzymes are responsible for the catalysis of fumarate and succinate interconversion; the fumarate reductase is used in anaerobic growth, and the succinate dehydrogenase is used in aerobic growth
 
 0.999
sucA
2-oxoglutarate decarboxylase, thiamine triphosphate-binding; E1 component of the 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (OGDH) complex which catalyzes the decarboxylation of 2-oxoglutarate, the first step in the conversion of 2-oxoglutarate to succinyl-CoA and CO(2)
 
 0.999
sucB
2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase E2 component (dihydrolipoamide succinyltransferase); E2 component of the 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (OGDH) complex which catalyzes the second step in the conversion of 2- oxoglutarate to succinyl-CoA and CO(2)
 0.999
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 [...]

sdhB
Succinate:quinone oxidoreductase, iron-sulfur cluster binding protein; Two distinct, membrane-bound, FAD-containing enzymes are responsible for the catalysis of fumarate and succinate interconversion; the fumarate reductase is used in anaerobic growth, and the succinate dehydrogenase is used in aerobic growth
 
 0.998
sdhC
Succinate dehydrogenase / fumarate reductase, cytochrome b subunit; Membrane-anchoring subunit of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)
  
 
 0.997
sdhD
Succinate dehydrogenase / fumarate reductase, membrane anchor subunit; Membrane-anchoring subunit of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)
  
 
 0.996
lpd
Dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase; Lipoamide dehydrogenase is a component of the glycine cleavage system as well as of the alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase complexes
  
 0.978
pfo
Pyruvate-ferredoxin/flavodoxin oxidoreductase; Oxidoreductase required for the transfer of electrons from pyruvate to flavodoxin
  
 
 0.959
gltA
Belongs to the citrate synthase family
