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
usgUSG-1 protein; Putative PTS system enzyme II A component (337 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
tRNA pseudouridine synthase A; Formation of pseudouridine at positions 38, 39 and 40 in the anticodon stem and loop of transfer RNAs
Acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase carboxyl transferase subunit beta; Component of the acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase (ACC) complex. Biotin carboxylase (BC) catalyzes the carboxylation of biotin on its carrier protein (BCCP) and then the CO(2) group is transferred by the transcarboxylase to acetyl-CoA to form malonyl- CoA; Belongs to the AccD/PCCB family
Aspartate-semialdehyde dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent formation of L-aspartate- semialdehyde (L-ASA) by the reductive dephosphorylation of L- aspartyl-4-phosphate
Phosphoglycerate kinase; Protein involved in glycolysis and gluconeogenesis; Belongs to the phosphoglycerate kinase family
Bifunctional aspartokinase/homoserine dehydrogenase 2; Aspartokinase II and homoserine dehydrogenase II; Protein involved in methionine biosynthetic process and homoserine biosynthetic process
Erythronate-4-phosphate dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the oxidation of erythronate-4-phosphate to 3- hydroxy-2-oxo-4-phosphonooxybutanoate; Belongs to the D-isomer specific 2-hydroxyacid dehydrogenase family. PdxB subfamily
Threonine synthase; Catalyzes the gamma-elimination of phosphate from L- phosphohomoserine and the beta-addition of water to produce L- threonine. To a lesser extent, is able to slowly catalyze the deamination of L-threonine into alpha-ketobutyrate and that of L- serine and 3-chloroalanine into pyruvate. Is also able to rapidly convert vinylglycine to threonine, which proves that the pyridoxal p-quinonoid of vinylglycine is an intermediate in the TS reaction
Bifunctional: aspartokinase I (N-terminal); homoserine dehydrogenase I (C-terminal); Protein involved in threonine biosynthetic process, methionine biosynthetic process and homoserine biosynthetic process
Homoserine kinase; Catalyzes the ATP-dependent phosphorylation of L- homoserine to L-homoserine phosphate. Is also able to phosphorylate the hydroxy group on gamma-carbon of L-homoserine analogs when the functional group at the alpha-position is a carboxyl, an ester, or even a hydroxymethyl group. Neither L- threonine nor L-serine are substrates of the enzyme
