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
curANADPH-dependent curcumin reductase; Catalyzes the metal-independent reduction of curcumin to dihydrocurcumin (DHC) as an intermediate product, followed by further reduction to tetrahydrocurcumin (THC) as an end product. It also acts on 3-octene-2-one, 3-hepten-2-one, resveratrol, and trans-2-octenal; Belongs to the NADP-dependent oxidoreductase L4BD family (345 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
NAD(P)H dehydrogenase (quinone); It seems to function in response to environmental stress when various electron transfer chains are affected or when the environment is highly oxidizing. It reduces quinones to the hydroquinone state to prevent interaction of the semiquinone with O2 and production of superoxide. It prefers NADH over NADPH; Belongs to the WrbA family
Acidic protein MsyB; Could participate in the normal pathway of protein export
2,4-dienoyl-CoA reductase; Functions as an auxiliary enzyme in the beta-oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids with double bonds at even carbon positions. Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of the C4-C5 double bond of the acyl chain of 2,4-dienoyl-CoA to yield 2-trans- enoyl-CoA. Acts on both isomers, 2-trans,4-cis- and 2-trans,4-trans-decadienoyl-CoA, with almost equal efficiency. Is not active with NADH instead of NADPH. Does not show cis->trans isomerase activity
Catalase HPII; Decomposes hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen; serves to protect cells from the toxic effects of hydrogen peroxide
HTH-type transcriptional regulator McbR; Important for biofilm formation. Represses expression of McbA by binding to its promoter region, which prevents colanic acid overproduction and mucoidy

2,5-diketo-D-gluconic acid reductase A; Catalyzes the reduction of 2,5-diketo-D-gluconic acid (25DKG) to 2-keto-L-gulonic acid (2KLG). It is also capable of stereoselective -keto ester reductions on ethyl acetoacetate and other 2-substituted derivatives; Belongs to the aldo/keto reductase family

L-amino acid N-acyltransferase MnaT; Acyltransferase that appears to be required for E.coli optimal growth rate and yield via the formation of N-acetylated amino acids. Catalyzes the acylation of L-methionine using acetyl- CoA or propanoyl-CoA as acyl donors, and the acetylation of L- phenylglycine. Is also able to N-acylate other free L-amino acids and their derivatives using a CoA thioester as cosubstrate. Using acetyl-CoA as an acyl donor, substrate specificity is methionine sulfone > methionine sulfoximine > methionine sulfoxide > methionine. Asparagine, lysine, glutamine, aspartat [...]
