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

metCCystathionine beta-lyase/l-cysteine desulfhydrase; Primarily catalyzes the cleavage of cystathionine to homocysteine, pyruvate and ammonia during methionine biosynthesis . Also exhibits cysteine desulfhydrase activity, producing sulfide from cysteine . In addition, under certain growth conditions, exhibits significant alanine racemase coactivity (395 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
cysK
(Microbial infection) In addition to its role in cysteine synthesis, stimulates the tRNase activity of CdiA-CT from E.coli strain 536 / UPEC; stimulation does not require O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase activity. CdiA is the toxic component of a toxin-immunity protein module, which functions as a cellular contact-dependent growth inhibition (CDI) system. CDI modules allow bacteria to communicate with and inhibit the growth of closely related neighboring bacteria in a contact-dependent fashion (experiments done in strains BW25113 and X90, both K12 derivatives). This protein is not required [...]

metE
5-methyltetrahydropteroyltriglutamate- homocysteine S-methyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from 5- methyltetrahydrofolate to homocysteine resulting in methionine formation
  
 
 0.985
sseA
Thiosulfate/3-mercaptopyruvate sulfurtransferase; Transfers a sulfur ion to cyanide or to other thiol compounds. Also has weak rhodanese activity (130-fold lower). Its participation in detoxification of cyanide may be small. May be involved in the enhancement of serine sensitivity
 
 
 0.983
malY
Plp-dependent beta-cystathionase and maltose regulon regulator; Acts as a beta-cystathionase and as a repressor of the maltose regulon
   
 0.980
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
  
 
 0.972
mmuM
Homocysteine s-methyltransferase; Catalyzes methyl transfer from S-methylmethionine or S- adenosylmethionine (less efficient) to homocysteine, selenohomocysteine and less efficiently selenocysteine
    
 0.955
metB
O-succinylhomoserine(thiol)-lyase/o-succinylhomoserine lyase; Catalyzes the formation of L-cystathionine from O-succinyl-L- homoserine (OSHS) and L-cysteine, via a gamma-replacement reaction. In the absence of thiol, catalyzes gamma-elimination to form 2- oxobutanoate, succinate and ammonia
  
 
0.952
luxS
S-ribosylhomocysteine lyase; Involved in the synthesis of autoinducer 2 (AI-2) which is secreted by bacteria and is used to communicate both the cell density and the metabolic potential of the environment. The regulation of gene expression in response to changes in cell density is called quorum sensing. Catalyzes the transformation of S-ribosylhomocysteine (RHC) to homocysteine (HC) and 4,5-dihydroxy-2,3-pentadione (DPD)

aspC
Aspartate aminotransferase, plp-dependent; Aspartate aminotransferase; Protein involved in cellular amino acid catabolic process and aspartate biosynthetic process
   
 
 0.916
ilvA
L-threonine dehydratase, biosynthetic; Catalyzes the anaerobic formation of alpha-ketobutyrate and ammonia from threonine in a two-step reaction. The first step involved a dehydration of threonine and a production of enamine intermediates (aminocrotonate), which tautomerizes to its imine form (iminobutyrate). Both intermediates are unstable and short-lived. The second step is the nonenzymatic hydrolysis of the enamine/imine intermediates to form 2- ketobutyrate and free ammonia. In the low water environment of the cell, the second step is accelerated by RidA
