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

Gene Fusion
tdcBL-threonine dehydratase, catabolic; 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. TdcB also dehydrates serine t [...] (329 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
L-threonine/l-serine transporter; Involved in the import of threonine and serine into the cell, with the concomitant import of a proton (symport system)
L-threonine synthase; Catalyzes the gamma-elimination of phosphate from L- phosphohomoserine and the beta-addition of water to produce L- threonine. To a lesser extent, is able to slowly catalyze the deamination of L-threonine into alpha-ketobutyrate and that of L-serine and 3-chloroalanine into pyruvate. Is also able to rapidly convert vinylglycine to threonine, which proves that the pyridoxal p-quinonoid of vinylglycine is an intermediate in the TS reaction
2-ketobutyrate formate-lyase/pyruvate formate-lyase 4; Catalyzes the cleavage of 2-ketobutyrate to propionyl-CoA and formate. It can also use pyruvate as substrate
3-isopropylmalate dehydrogenase, NAD(+)-dependent; Catalyzes the oxidation of 3-carboxy-2-hydroxy-4- methylpentanoate (3-isopropylmalate) to 3-carboxy-4-methyl-2- oxopentanoate. The product decarboxylates to 4-methyl-2 oxopentanoate
Lysr family transcriptional regulator, tdc operon transcriptional activator; Transcriptional activator for the tdcABCDE operon
Branched-chain amino acid aminotransferase; Acts on leucine, isoleucine and valine
3-phosphoserine phosphatase; Catalyzes the dephosphorylation of phosphoserine (P-Ser). Also catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphothreonine (P-Thr)
L-allo-threonine aldolase, plp-dependent; Catalyzes the cleavage of L-allo-threonine and L-threonine to glycine and acetaldehyde. L-threo-phenylserine and L-erythro- phenylserine are also good substrates
Glycine hydroxymethyltransferase; Catalyzes the reversible interconversion of serine and glycine with tetrahydrofolate (THF) serving as the one-carbon carrier. This reaction serves as the major source of one-carbon groups required for the biosynthesis of purines, thymidylate, methionine, and other important biomolecules. Also exhibits THF-independent aldolase activity toward beta-hydroxyamino acids, producing glycine and aldehydes, via a retro-aldol mechanism. Thus, is able to catalyze the cleavage of allothreonine and 3-phenylserine. Also catalyzes the irreversible conversion of 5,10- [...]
L-serine dehydratase 3, anaerobic; L-serine dehydratase; Protein involved in cellular amino acid catabolic process
