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

metKS-adenosylmethionine synthetase; Catalyzes the formation of S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet) from methionine and ATP. The overall synthetic reaction is composed of two sequential steps, AdoMet formation and the subsequent tripolyphosphate hydrolysis which occurs prior to release of AdoMet from the enzyme Is essential for growth (384 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
metE
5-methyltetrahydropteroyltriglutamate- homocysteine S-methyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from 5- methyltetrahydrofolate to homocysteine resulting in methionine formation
  
 0.996
metH
homocysteine-N5-methyltetrahydrofolate transmethylase, B12-dependent; Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from methyl- cobalamin to homocysteine, yielding enzyme-bound cob(I)alamin and methionine. Subsequently, remethylates the cofactor using methyltetrahydrofolate
  
 
 0.993
speD
S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase proenzyme; Catalyzes the decarboxylation of S-adenosylmethionine to S- adenosylmethioninamine (dcAdoMet), the propylamine donor required for the synthesis of the polyamines spermine and spermidine from the diamine putrescine
    
 0.975
mmuM
Homocysteine s-methyltransferase; Catalyzes methyl transfer from S-methylmethionine or S- adenosylmethionine (less efficient) to homocysteine, selenohomocysteine and less efficiently selenocysteine
     
 0.975
metF
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (nadph); Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase required to generate the methyl groups necessary for methionine synthetase to convert homocysteine to methionine
  
  
 0.970
dcm
Dna (cytosine-5)-methyltransferase 1; This methylase recognizes the double-stranded sequence CCWGG, causes specific methylation on C-2 on both strands
    
 0.916
mtn
5'-methylthioadenosine/S-adenosylhomocysteine nucleosidase; Catalyzes the irreversible cleavage of the glycosidic bond in both 5'-methylthioadenosine (MTA) and S-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH/AdoHcy) to adenine and the corresponding thioribose, 5'- methylthioribose and S-ribosylhomocysteine, respectively . Also cleaves 5'-deoxyadenosine, a toxic by-product of radical S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) enzymes, into 5- deoxyribose and adenine. Thus, is required for in vivo function of the radical SAM enzymes biotin synthase and lipoic acid synthase, that are inhibited by 5'-deoxyadenosine accumulat [...]

tyrB
Tyrosine aminotransferase, tyrosine-repressible, plp-dependent; Broad-specificity enzyme that catalyzes the transamination of 2-ketoisocaproate, p-hydroxyphenylpyruvate, and phenylpyruvate to yield leucine, tyrosine, and phenylalanine, respectively. In vitro, is able to catalyze the conversion of beta-methyl phenylpyruvate to the nonproteinogenic amino acid (2S,3S)-beta-methyl-phenylalanine, a building block of the antibiotic mannopeptimycin produced by Streptomyces hygroscopicus NRRL3085
     
 0.912
metN
L-methionine/d-methionine abc transporter atp binding subunit; Part of the ABC transporter complex MetNIQ involved in methionine import Responsible for energy coupling to the transport system . It has also been shown to be involved in formyl-L-methionine transport
  
  
 0.903
msrC
Free methionine-(r)-sulfoxide reductase; Catalyzes the reversible oxidation-reduction of the R- enantiomer of free methionine sulfoxide to methionine. Specific for free L-methionine-(R)-S-oxide
