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

Predicted Functional Partners:
Probable HTH-type transcriptional regulator YgaV; Functions as transcription repressor
Putative aminoacrylate peracid reductase RutC; May reduce aminoacrylate peracid to aminoacrylate. Required to remove a toxic intermediate produce in vivo, but not in vitro in the pyrimidine nitrogen degradation
Putative aminoacrylate hydrolase RutD; May increase the rate of spontaneous hydrolysis of aminoacrylate to malonic semialdehyde. Required to remove a toxic intermediate produce in vivo, but not in vitro in the pyrimidine nitrogen degradation
Protein involved in methylglyoxal metabolic process
Peroxyureidoacrylate/ureidoacrylate amidohydrolase RutB; In vivo, quickly hydrolyzes the ureidoacrylate peracid to avoid toxicity, but can also hydrolyzes ureidoacrylate that is formed spontaneously from ureidoacrylate peracid. One of the products of hydrolysis, carbamate, hydrolyzes spontaneously, thereby releasing one of the pyrimidine rings nitrogen atoms as ammonia and one of its carbons as CO2
PFL-like enzyme TdcE; Catalyzes the cleavage of 2-ketobutyrate to propionyl- CoA and formate. It can also use pyruvate as substrate
annotation not available
Aldehyde-alcohol dehydrogenase; This enzyme has three activities: ADH, ACDH, and PFL- deactivase. In aerobic conditions it acts as a hydrogen peroxide scavenger. The PFL deactivase activity catalyzes the quenching of the pyruvate-formate-lyase catalyst in an iron, NAD, and CoA dependent reaction; In the N-terminal section; belongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family
Fumarate reductase subunit C; Seems to be involved in the anchoring of the catalytic components of the fumarate reductase complex to the cytoplasmic membrane
Probable malonic semialdehyde reductase RutE; May reduce toxic product malonic semialdehyde to 3- hydroxypropionic acid, which is excreted. RutE is apparently supplemented by YdfG. Required in vivo, but not in vitro in pyrimidine nitrogen degradation; Belongs to the nitroreductase family. HadB/RutE subfamily
