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
rhmTPutative l-rhamnonate transporter; Belongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Phthalate permease family (429 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
2-dehydro-3-deoxy-L-rhamnonate aldolase; Catalyzes the reversible retro-aldol cleavage of 2-keto-3- deoxy-L-rhamnonate (KDR) to pyruvate and lactaldehyde. 2-keto-3-deoxy- L-mannonate, 2-keto-3-deoxy-L-lyxonate and 4-hydroxy-2-ketoheptane-1,7- dioate (HKHD) are also reasonably good substrates, although 2-keto-3- deoxy-L-rhamnonate is likely to be the physiological substrate
L-rhamnonate dehydratase; Catalyzes the dehydration of L-rhamnonate to 2-keto-3-deoxy- L-rhamnonate (KDR). Can also dehydrate L-lyxonate, L-mannonate and D- gulonate, although less efficiently, but not 2-keto-4-hydroxyheptane- 1,7-dioate
Uncharacterized HTH-type transcriptional regulator RhmR; Putative regulator; Protein involved in transcription and regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent
D-altronate dehydratase; Catalyzes the dehydration of D-altronate
Mfs transporter, fhs family, l-fucose permease; Mediates the uptake of L-fucose across the boundary membrane with the concomitant transport of protons into the cell (symport system). Can also transport L-galactose and D-arabinose, but at reduced rates compared with L-fucose. Is not able to transport L-rhamnose and L-arabinose
D-galactarate dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the dehydration of galactarate to form 5-dehydro-4- deoxy-D-glucarate
Mfs transporter, acs family, probable galactarate transporter; Uptake of D-galactarate
D-galactonate dehydratase; Catalyzes the dehydration of D-galactonate to 2-keto-3-deoxy- D-galactonate
Glyoxylate/hydroxypyruvate/2-ketogluconate reductase; Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of glyoxylate and hydroxypyruvate into glycolate and glycerate, respectively. Can also reduce 2,5-diketo-D-gluconate (25DKG) to 5-keto-D-gluconate (5KDG), 2- keto-D-gluconate (2KDG) to D-gluconate, and 2-keto-L-gulonate (2KLG) to L-idonate (IA), but it is not its physiological function. Inactive towards 2-oxoglutarate, oxaloacetate, pyruvate, 5-keto-D-gluconate, D- fructose and L-sorbose. Activity with NAD is very low
Tyrosyl-trna synthetase; Catalyzes the attachment of L-tyrosine to tRNA(Tyr) in a two- step reaction: tyrosine is first activated by ATP to form Tyr-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of tRNA(Tyr) Can also mischarge tRNA(Tyr) with D-tyrosine, leading to the formation of D-tyrosyl-tRNA(Tyr), which can be hydrolyzed by the D-aminoacyl-tRNA deacylase . In vitro, can also use the non-natural amino acid azatyrosine
