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
galUUTP--glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase; May play a role in stationary phase survival (302 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
UDP-galactose-4-epimerase; Involved in the metabolism of galactose. Catalyzes the conversion of UDP-galactose (UDP-Gal) to UDP-glucose (UDP-Glc) through a mechanism involving the transient reduction of NAD. It is only active on UDP-galactose and UDP-glucose
Phosphoglucomutase; This enzyme participates in both the breakdown and synthesis of glucose
Galactokinase; Catalyzes the transfer of the gamma-phosphate of ATP to D- galactose to form alpha-D-galactose-1-phosphate (Gal-1-P). To a lesser extent, is also able to phosphorylate 2-deoxy-D-galactose and D- galactosamine. Is not able to use D-galacturonic acid, D-talose, L- altrose, and L-glucose as substrates
Udpglucose 6-dehydrogenase; UDP-glucose 6-dehydrogenase; Protein involved in cell surface antigen activity, host-interacting, colanic acid biosynthetic process and response to desiccation
Small subunit ribosomal protein s12; With S4 and S5 plays an important role in translational accuracy. Cryo-EM studies suggest that S12 contacts the EF-Tu bound tRNA in the A-site during codon-recognition. This contact is most likely broken as the aminoacyl-tRNA moves into the peptidyl transferase center in the 50S subunit
Putative 5-methylcytosine/5-hydroxymethylcytosine-specific restriction nuclease; Restriction of 5-methyl and 5-hydroxymethylcytosines at the specific DNA sequence C(me)CGG
Methylated adenine and cytosine restriction protein; Involved in the acceptance of foreign DNA which is modified. Restricts both adenine- and cytosine-methylated DNA
UDPglucose--hexose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase; Belongs to the galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase type 1 family
Trehalose 6-phosphate synthase; Catalyzes the transfer of glucose from UDP-alpha-D-glucose (UDP-Glc) to D-glucose 6-phosphate (Glc-6-P) to form trehalose-6- phosphate. Acts with retention of the anomeric configuration of the UDP-sugar donor. Essential for viability of the cells at low temperatures and at elevated osmotic strength
Glucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase; Involved in the biosynthesis of ADP-glucose, a building block required for the elongation reactions to produce glycogen. Catalyzes the reaction between ATP and alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate (G1P) to produce pyrophosphate and ADP-Glc
