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
cysK(Microbial infection) In addition to its role in cysteine synthesis, stimulates the tRNase activity of CdiA-CT from E.coli strain 536 / UPEC; stimulation does not require O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase activity. CdiA is the toxic component of a toxin-immunity protein module, which functions as a cellular contact-dependent growth inhibition (CDI) system. CDI modules allow bacteria to communicate with and inhibit the growth of closely related neighboring bacteria in a contact-dependent fashion (experiments done in strains BW25113 and X90, both K12 derivatives). This protein is not required [...] (323 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Serine o-acetyltransferase; Belongs to the transferase hexapeptide repeat family
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
Sulfite reductase, beta subunit, nad(p)-binding, heme-binding; 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
Cystathionine beta-lyase/l-cysteine desulfhydrase; Primarily catalyzes the cleavage of cystathionine to homocysteine, pyruvate and ammonia during methionine biosynthesis . Also exhibits cysteine desulfhydrase activity, producing sulfide from cysteine . In addition, under certain growth conditions, exhibits significant alanine racemase coactivity
Plp-dependent beta-cystathionase and maltose regulon regulator; Acts as a beta-cystathionase and as a repressor of the maltose regulon
O-succinylhomoserine(thiol)-lyase/o-succinylhomoserine lyase; Catalyzes the formation of L-cystathionine from O-succinyl-L- homoserine (OSHS) and L-cysteine, via a gamma-replacement reaction. In the absence of thiol, catalyzes gamma-elimination to form 2- oxobutanoate, succinate and ammonia
Sulfate adenylyltransferase subunit 2; Belongs to the PAPS reductase family. CysD subfamily
Phosphoadenosine phosphosulfate reductase; Reduction of activated sulfate into sulfite
3-phosphoserine/phosphohydroxythreonine aminotransferase; Catalyzes the reversible conversion of 3- phosphohydroxypyruvate to phosphoserine and of 3-hydroxy-2-oxo-4- phosphonooxybutanoate to phosphohydroxythreonine. Is involved in both pyridoxine and serine biosynthesis
Sulfate/thiosulfate transport system atp-binding protein; Part of the ABC transporter complex CysAWTP involved in sulfate/thiosulfate import. Responsible for energy coupling to the transport system
