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
cysBHTH-type transcriptional regulator CysB; This protein is a positive regulator of gene expression for the cysteine regulon, a system of 10 or more loci involved in the biosynthesis of L-cysteine from inorganic sulfate. The inducer for CysB is N-acetylserine. CysB inhibits its own transcription (324 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
DNA-directed RNA polymerase subunit alpha; DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RNAP) catalyzes the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates. This subunit plays an important role in subunit assembly since its dimerization is the first step in the sequential assembly of subunits to form the holoenzyme
Serine acetyltransferase; Protein involved in cysteine biosynthetic process
DNA topoisomerase 1; Releases the supercoiling and torsional tension of DNA, which is introduced during the DNA replication and transcription, by transiently cleaving and rejoining one strand of the DNA duplex. Introduces a single-strand break via transesterification at a target site in duplex DNA. The scissile phosphodiester is attacked by the catalytic tyrosine of the enzyme, resulting in the formation of a DNA-(5'-phosphotyrosyl)-enzyme intermediate and the expulsion of a 3'-OH DNA strand. The free DNA strand then undergoes passage around the unbroken strand, thus removing DNA super [...]
ATP:sulfurylase (ATP:sulfate adenylyltransferase), subunit 2; Protein involved in sulfur metabolic process; Belongs to the PAPS reductase family. CysD subfamily
Phosphoadenosine phosphosulfate reductase; Reduction of activated sulfate into sulfite
Sulfite reductase [NADPH] flavoprotein alpha-component; Component of the sulfite reductase complex that catalyzes the 6-electron reduction of sulfite to sulfide. This is one of several activities required for the biosynthesis of L- cysteine from sulfate. The flavoprotein component catalyzes the electron flow from NADPH -> FAD -> FMN to the hemoprotein component; In the N-terminal section; belongs to the flavodoxin family
Taurine import ATP-binding protein TauB; Part of the ABC transporter complex TauABC involved in taurine import. Responsible for energy coupling to the transport system
Glycine cleavage system transcriptional activator; Regulatory protein for the glycine cleavage system operon (gcv). Mediates activation of gcv by glycine and repression by purines. GcvA is negatively autoregulated. Binds to three sites upstream of the gcv promoter
Thiosulfate-binding protein; Part of the ABC transporter complex CysAWTP (TC 3.A.1.6.1) involved in sulfate/thiosulfate import. This protein specifically binds thiosulfate and is involved in its transmembrane transport
Sulfite reductase [NADPH] hemoprotein beta-component; Component of the sulfite reductase complex that catalyzes the 6-electron reduction of sulfite to sulfide. This is one of several activities required for the biosynthesis of L- cysteine from sulfate; Belongs to the nitrite and sulfite reductase 4Fe-4S domain family
