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
kbl2-amino-3-ketobutyrate CoA ligase; Catalyzes the cleavage of 2-amino-3-ketobutyrate to glycine and acetyl-CoA (398 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
L-threonine 3-dehydrogenase, nad(p)-binding; Catalyzes the NAD(+)-dependent oxidation of L-threonine to 2- amino-3-ketobutyrate. To a lesser extent, also catalyzes the oxidation of D-allo-threonine and L-threonine amide, but not that of D-threonine and L-allothreonine. Cannot utilize NADP(+) instead of NAD(+)
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- [...]
Glycine decarboxylase, plp-dependent, subunit p of glycine cleavage complex; The glycine cleavage system catalyzes the degradation of glycine. The P protein binds the alpha-amino group of glycine through its pyridoxal phosphate cofactor; CO(2) is released and the remaining methylamine moiety is then transferred to the lipoamide cofactor of the H protein
L-threonine dehydrogenase; Probable alcohol dehydrogenase; Putative oxidoreductase
NADP-dependent dehydrogenase with broad substrate specificity acting on 3-hydroxy acids. Catalyzes the NADP-dependent oxidation of L- allo-threonine to L-2-amino-3-keto-butyrate, which is spontaneously decarboxylated into aminoacetone. Also acts on D-threonine, L-serine, D-serine, D-3-hydroxyisobutyrate, L-3-hydroxyisobutyrate, D-glycerate and L-glycerate . Able to catalyze the reduction of the malonic semialdehyde to 3-hydroxypropionic acid. YdfG is apparently supplementing RutE, the presumed malonic semialdehyde reductase involved in pyrimidine degradation since both are able to deto [...]
Yibb family protein, function unknown; Protein HtrL; Involved in lipopolysaccharide biosynthesis; Protein involved in cell surface antigen activity, host-interacting and lipopolysaccharide biosynthetic process
Adenosylmethionine---8-amino-7-oxononanoate aminotransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of the alpha-amino group from S- adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) to 7-keto-8-aminopelargonic acid (KAPA) to form 7,8-diaminopelargonic acid (DAPA). It is the only animotransferase known to utilize SAM as an amino donor
Malonyl-acp o-methyltransferase, sam-dependent; Converts the free carboxyl group of a malonyl-thioester to its methyl ester by transfer of a methyl group from S-adenosyl-L- methionine (SAM). It allows to synthesize pimeloyl-ACP via the fatty acid synthetic pathway. E.coli employs a methylation and demethylation strategy to allow elongation of a temporarily disguised malonate moiety to a pimelate moiety by the fatty acid synthetic enzymes
Bira family transcriptional regulator, biotin operon repressor / biotin---[acetyl-coa-carboxylase] ligase; Acts both as a biotin--[acetyl-CoA-carboxylase] ligase and a biotin-operon repressor. In the presence of ATP, BirA activates biotin to form the BirA-biotinyl-5'-adenylate (BirA-bio-5'-AMP or holoBirA) complex. HoloBirA can either transfer the biotinyl moiety to the biotin carboxyl carrier protein (BCCP) subunit of acetyl-CoA carboxylase, or bind to the biotin operator site and inhibit transcription of the operon
