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
fucOL-1,2-propanediol oxidoreductase; Belongs to the iron-containing alcohol dehydrogenase family (382 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
L-fuculose-1-phosphate aldolase; Involved in the degradation of L-fucose and D-arabinose . Catalyzes the reversible cleavage of L-fuculose 1- phosphate (Fuc1P) to yield dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) and L- lactaldehyde Ref.8, Ref.9, Also able to catalyze the reversible cleavage of D- ribulose 1-phosphate, but FucA has a higher affinity for L-fuculose 1- phosphate and L-lactaldehyde than for D-ribulose 1-phosphate and glycolaldehyde, respectively . FucA possesses a high specificity for the dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP), but accepts a great variety of different aldehydes and has [...]
L-1,2-propanediol dehydrogenase/glycerol dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the NAD-dependent oxidation of glycerol to dihydroxyacetone (glycerone). Allows microorganisms to utilize glycerol as a source of carbon under anaerobic conditions. In E.coli, an important role of GldA is also likely to regulate the intracellular level of dihydroxyacetone by catalyzing the reverse reaction, i.e. the conversion of dihydroxyacetone into glycerol. Possesses a broad substrate specificity, since it is also able to oxidize 1,2-propanediol and to reduce glycolaldehyde, methylglyoxal and hydroxyacetone into ethy [...]
Lactaldehyde dehydrogenase / glycolaldehyde dehydrogenase; Acts on lactaldehyde as well as other aldehydes
Rhamnulose-1-phosphate aldolase; Catalyzes the reversible cleavage of L-rhamnulose-1-phosphate to dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) and L-lactaldehyde . Also catalyzes the dephosphorylation of phospho- serine in vitro
Furfural resistance protein, putative short-chain oxidoreductase; Putative oxidoreductase
Broad specificity nadph-dependent aldehyde reductase, zn-containing; Catalyzes the reduction of a wide range of aldehydes including aliphatic fatty aldehydes (C4-C16), into their corresponding alcohols. Has a strong preference for NADPH over NADH as the electron donor. Cannot use glyceraldehyde or a ketone as substrate. Is a relevant source of NADPH-dependent aldehyde reductase activity in E.coli. The in vivo functions of Ahr has yet to be determined
Deor family transcriptional regulator, l-fucose operon activator; Transcriptional activator of the fuc operon
Methylglyoxal synthase; Catalyzes the formation of methylglyoxal from dihydroxyacetone phosphate
L-fucose/d-arabinose isomerase; Converts the aldose L-fucose into the corresponding ketose L- fuculose. Is also able to convert D-arabinose into D-ribulose, but this isomerase has a higher affinity for fucose and fuculose than for arabinose and ribulose, respectively
2,5-diketo-D-gluconate reductase A; Catalyzes the reduction of 2,5-diketo-D-gluconic acid (25DKG) to 2-keto-L-gulonic acid (2KLG). It is also capable of stereoselective -keto ester reductions on ethyl acetoacetate and other 2-substituted derivatives
