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
pgl6-phosphogluconolactonase; Catalyzes the hydrolysis of 6-phosphogluconolactone to 6-phosphogluconate (331 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Glucose-6-phosphate 1-dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the oxidation of glucose 6-phosphate to 6- phosphogluconolactone; Belongs to the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase family
6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, decarboxylating; Catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of 6- phosphogluconate to ribulose 5-phosphate and CO(2), with concomitant reduction of NADP to NADPH; Belongs to the 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase family
Fructose-6-phosphate aldolase 2; Catalyzes the reversible formation of fructose 6- phosphate from dihydroxyacetone and D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate via an aldolization reaction. Can utilize hydroxyacetone as an alternative donor substrate. Is also able to catalyze the direct self-aldol addition of glycolaldehyde. Is less catalytically efficient than the isozyme FsaA. Does not display transaldolase activity
Phosphogluconate dehydratase; Catalyzes the dehydration of 6-phospho-D-gluconate to 2- dehydro-3-deoxy-6-phospho-D-gluconate
Gluconokinase 2, thermoresistant; gluconate transport, GNT I system; Protein involved in glucose metabolic process; Belongs to the gluconokinase GntK/GntV family
Thermosensitive gluconokinase; Protein involved in carbohydrate catabolic process; Belongs to the gluconokinase GntK/GntV family
Mannose-6-phosphate isomerase; Involved in the conversion of glucose to GDP-L-fucose, which can be converted to L-fucose, a capsular polysaccharide
Ribose-phosphate pyrophosphokinase; Involved in the biosynthesis of the central metabolite phospho-alpha-D-ribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) via the transfer of pyrophosphoryl group from ATP to 1-hydroxyl of ribose-5-phosphate (Rib-5-P)
Pyridoxal phosphate phosphatase YbhA; Catalyzes the dephosphorylation of pyridoxal-phosphate (PLP). Can also hydrolyze erythrose-4-phosphate (Ery4P) and fructose-1,6-bis-phosphate (Fru1,6bisP); Belongs to the HAD-like hydrolase superfamily. CbbY/CbbZ/Gph/YieH family
Phosphotransferase RcsD; Component of the Rcs signaling system, which controls transcription of numerous genes. RcsD is a phosphotransfer intermediate between the sensor kinase RcsC and the response regulator RcsB. It acquires a phosphoryl group from RcsC and transfers it to RcsB. The system controls expression of genes involved in colanic acid capsule synthesis, biofilm formation and cell division
