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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
fucIL-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 (591 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
L-fuculokinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of L-fuculose. Can also phosphorylate, with lower efficiency, D-ribulose, D-xylulose and D- fructose
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
Mfs transporter, fhs family, l-fucose permease; Mediates the uptake of L-fucose across the boundary membrane with the concomitant transport of protons into the cell (symport system). Can also transport L-galactose and D-arabinose, but at reduced rates compared with L-fucose. Is not able to transport L-rhamnose and L-arabinose
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-rhamnose isomerase; Protein involved in carbohydrate catabolic process
Rhamnulokinase; Involved in the catabolism of L-rhamnose (6-deoxy-L-mannose). It could also play a role in the metabolism of some rare sugars such as L-fructose. Catalyzes the transfer of the gamma-phosphate group from ATP to the 1-hydroxyl group of L-rhamnulose to yield L-rhamnulose 1- phosphate. Uridine triphosphate (UTP), cytidine 5-triphosphate (CTP), guanosine 5-triphosphate (GTP), and thymidine triphosphate (TTP) also can act as phosphoryl donors. It can also phosphorylate L-fuculose and L-xylulose
Manno(fructo)kinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of fructose to fructose-6-P. Has also low level glucokinase activity in vitro. Is not able to phosphorylate D-ribose, D-mannitol, D-sorbitol, inositol, and L- threonine
Deor family transcriptional regulator, l-fucose operon activator; Transcriptional activator of the fuc operon
L-1,2-propanediol oxidoreductase; Belongs to the iron-containing alcohol dehydrogenase family
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
