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

Gene Fusion
gstAGlutathione s-transferase gsta; Catalyzes the conjugation of reduced glutathione (GSH) to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles. Shows activity toward 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (CDNB) and ethacrynic acid. Also possesses thiol:disulfide oxidoreductase activity, using GSH to reduce bis-(2-hydroxyethyl) disulfide (HEDS). Has a low level of glutathione-dependent peroxidase activity toward cumene hydroperoxide. Is important for defense against oxidative stress, probably via its peroxidase activity (201 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Glutathione s-transferase gstb; Conjugation of reduced glutathione to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles. Catalyzes the glutathione-dependent dehalogenation of bromoacetate
Glutathione reductase (nadph); Maintains high levels of reduced glutathione in the cytosol
Glutathione s-transferase yfcf; Exhibits glutathione (GSH) S-transferase activity toward 1- chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (CDNB); however this activity is as low as 1% of that of GstA. Also displays a GSH-dependent peroxidase activity toward cumene hydroperoxide. Is involved in defense against oxidative stress, probably via its peroxidase activity
Thioredoxin/glutathione peroxidase; Non-specific peroxidase that can use thioredoxin or glutathione as a reducing agent. In vitro, utilizes preferentially thioredoxin A to decompose hydrogen peroxide as well as cumene-, tert- butyl-, and linoleic acid hydroperoxides, suggesting that it may have one or more organic hydroperoxide as its physiological substrate
Glutathione synthetase; Protein involved in glutathione biosynthetic process
Gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase / glutathione hydrolase; Cleaves the gamma-glutamyl bond of periplasmic glutathione (gamma-Glu-Cys-Gly), glutathione conjugates, and other gamma-glutamyl compounds. The metabolism of glutathione releases free glutamate and the dipeptide cysteinyl-glycine, which is hydrolyzed to cysteine and glycine by dipeptidases; it may function in amino acid uptake/salvage, or possibly in peptidoglycan linkage. Catalyzes the hydrolysis and transpeptidation of many gamma-glutamyl compounds (including some D- gamma-glutamyl substrates), with a preference for basic and arom [...]
Fused glutathionylspermidine amidase/glutathionylspermidine synthetase; Catalyzes the formation of an amide bond between glutathione (GSH) and spermidine coupled with hydrolysis of ATP; also catalyzes the opposing reaction, i.e. the hydrolysis of glutathionylspermidine (Gsp) back to glutathione and spermidine. The amidase active site can also hydrolyze Gsp-disulfide (Gsp-S-S-Gsp) to Gsp-SG and Gsp S-thiolated proteins (GspSSPs) to GSH S-thiolated protein (GSSPs). Likely acts synergistically with glutaredoxin to regulate the redox environment of E.coli and defend against oxidative damag [...]
Glutathione-specific gamma-glutamylcyclotransferase; Catalyzes the cleavage of glutathione into 5-oxo-L-proline and a Cys-Gly dipeptide. Acts specifically on glutathione, but not on other gamma-glutamyl peptides
Gsh-dependent disulfide-bond oxidoreductase; Exhibits a very robust glutathione (GSH)-dependent disulfide- bond reductase activity toward the model substrate, 2-hydroxyethyl disulfide; the actual physiological substrates are not known. Has also a low GSH-dependent hydroperoxidase activity toward cumene hydroperoxide, but does not reduce H(2)O(2), tert-butyl hydroperoxide, benzyl peroxide, or lauroyl peroxide. Exhibits little or no GSH transferase activity with most typical electrophilic substrates, and has no detectable transferase activity using glutathionylspermidine (GspSH) as the n [...]
