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

fucAL-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 [...] (215 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
L-1,2-propanediol oxidoreductase; Belongs to the iron-containing alcohol dehydrogenase family
L-fuculokinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of L-fuculose. Can also phosphorylate, with lower efficiency, D-ribulose, D-xylulose and D- fructose
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
Fructose-bisphosphate aldolase, class ii; Catalyzes the aldol condensation of dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP or glycerone-phosphate) with glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate (G3P) to form fructose 1,6-bisphosphate (FBP) in gluconeogenesis and the reverse reaction in glycolysis
Lactaldehyde dehydrogenase / glycolaldehyde dehydrogenase; Acts on lactaldehyde as well as other aldehydes
Triosephosphate isomerase (tim); Involved in the gluconeogenesis. Catalyzes stereospecifically the conversion of dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) to D- glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate (G3P)
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
Fructose-bisphosphate aldolase, class i; Belongs to the DeoC/FbaB aldolase family. FbaB subfamily
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-fucose mutarotase; Involved in the anomeric conversion of L-fucose. Catalyzes also the interconversion of beta-pyran and beta-furan forms of D- ribose
