STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

rpiARibose 5-phosphate isomerase, constitutive; Involved in the first step of the non-oxidative branch of the pentose phosphate pathway. It catalyzes the reversible conversion of ribose-5-phosphate to ribulose 5-phosphate. Can also act on D-ribose-5- diphosphate and D-ribose-5-triphosphate as substrate (219 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
rpe
D-ribulose-5-phosphate 3-epimerase; Catalyzes the reversible epimerization of D-ribulose 5- phosphate to D-xylulose 5-phosphate
  
 0.994
tktA
Transketolase 1, thiamine triphosphate-binding; Catalyzes the transfer of a two-carbon ketol group from a ketose donor to an aldose acceptor, via a covalent intermediate with the cofactor thiamine pyrophosphate. Thus, catalyzes the reversible transfer of a two-carbon ketol group from sedoheptulose-7-phosphate to glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate, producing xylulose-5-phosphate and ribose- 5-phosphate
  
 0.992
rpiB
Allose-6-phosphate isomerase/ribose-5-phosphate isomerase B; Catalyzes the interconversion of ribulose-5-P and ribose-5-P. It probably also has activity on D-allose 6-phosphate
     
 0.984
tktB
Transketolase 2, thiamine triphosphate-binding; Catalyzes the reversible transfer of a two-carbon ketol group from sedoheptulose-7-phosphate to glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate, producing xylulose-5-phosphate and ribose-5-phosphate. Catalyzes the transfer of a two-carbon ketol group from a ketose donor to an aldose acceptor, via a covalent intermediate with the cofactor thiamine pyrophosphate (By similarity)
  
 0.978
gnd
6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, decarboxylating; Catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of 6-phosphogluconate to ribulose 5-phosphate and CO(2), with concomitant reduction of NADP to NADPH
 
 
 0.976
pgm
Phosphoglucomutase; This enzyme participates in both the breakdown and synthesis of glucose
  
 
 0.939
rbsK
Ribokinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of ribose at O-5 in a reaction requiring ATP and magnesium. The resulting D-ribose-5-phosphate can then be used either for sythesis of nucleotides, histidine, and tryptophan, or as a component of the pentose phosphate pathway
 
 
 0.937
deoB
Phosphopentomutase; Phosphotransfer between the C1 and C5 carbon atoms of pentose
    
 0.936
prs
Phosphoribosylpyrophosphate synthase; Involved in the biosynthesis of the central metabolite phospho-alpha-D-ribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) via the transfer of pyrophosphoryl group from ATP to 1-hydroxyl of ribose-5-phosphate (Rib- 5-P)
  
 0.934
yhfW
Phosphopentomutase-related metalloenzyme superfamily protein; Uncharacterized protein YhfW; Putative mutase
    
 0.914
