STRINGSTRING
wecD protein (Escherichia coli K12 MG1655) - STRING interaction network
"wecD" - dTDP-fucosamine acetyltransferase in Escherichia coli K12 MG1655
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

wecDdTDP-fucosamine acetyltransferase; Catalyzes the acetylation of dTDP-fucosamine (dTDP-4- amino-4,6-dideoxy-D-galactose) to dTDP-Fuc4NAc, which is utilized in the biosynthesis of the enterobacterial common antigen (ECA); Belongs to the WecD family (224 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
wecE
dTDP-4-amino-4,6-dideoxygalactose transaminase; Catalyzes the synthesis of dTDP-4-amino-4,6-dideoxy-D- galactose (dTDP-Fuc4N) from dTDP-4-keto-6-deoxy-D-glucose (dTDP-D- Glc4O) and L-glutamate (376 aa)
 
  0.999
wecF
TDP-N-acetylfucosamine-lipid II N-acetylfucosaminyltransferase; Catalyzes the synthesis of Und-PP-GlcNAc-ManNAcA-Fuc4NAc (Lipid III), the third lipid-linked intermediate involved in ECA synthesis; Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 56 family (359 aa)
 
  0.999
wzxE
Lipid III flippase; Mediates the transbilayer movement of Und-PP-GlcNAc- ManNAcA-Fuc4NAc (lipid III) from the inner to the outer leaflet of the cytoplasmic membrane during the assembly of enterobacterial common antigen (ECA). Required for the assembly of the phosphoglyceride-linked form of ECA (ECA(PG)) and the water- soluble cyclic form of ECA (ECA(CYC)). Could also mediate the translocation of Und-PP-GlcNAc (416 aa)
   
  0.992
wzyE
Probable ECA polymerase; Probably involved in the polymerization of enterobacterial common antigen (ECA) trisaccharide repeat units. Required for the assembly of the phosphoglyceride-linked form of ECA (ECA(PG)) and the water-soluble cyclic form of ECA (ECA(CYC)); Belongs to the WzyE family (450 aa)
 
   
  0.988
wecC
UDP-N-acetyl-D-mannosamine dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the four-electron oxidation of UDP-N-acetyl-D- mannosamine (UDP-ManNAc), reducing NAD(+) and releasing UDP-N- acetylmannosaminuronic acid (UDP-ManNAcA) (420 aa)
   
  0.986
wecG
UDP-N-acetyl-D-mannosaminuronic acid transferase; Catalyzes the synthesis of Und-PP-GlcNAc-ManNAcA (Lipid II), the second lipid-linked intermediate involved in enterobacterial common antigen (ECA) synthesis (246 aa)
 
   
  0.985
wecB
UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 2-epimerase; Catalyzes the reversible epimerization at C-2 of UDP-N- acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) and thereby provides bacteria with UDP-N-acetylmannosamine (UDP-ManNAc), the activated donor of ManNAc residues. Also involved in bacteriophage N4 adsorption (376 aa)
   
  0.979
rffH
Glucose-1-phosphate thymidylyltransferase 2; Catalyzes the formation of dTDP-glucose, from dTTP and glucose 1-phosphate, as well as its pyrophosphorolysis; Belongs to the glucose-1-phosphate thymidylyltransferase family (293 aa)
 
   
  0.964
wzzE
ECA polysaccharide chain length modulation protein; Modulates the polysaccharide chain length of enterobacterial common antigen (ECA). Required for the assembly of the phosphoglyceride-linked form of ECA (ECA(PG)) and the water- soluble cyclic form of ECA (ECA(CYC)) (348 aa)
 
   
  0.948
wecA
Undecaprenyl-phosphate alpha-N-acetylglucosaminyl 1-phosphate transferase; Catalyzes the transfer of the GlcNAc-1-phosphate moiety from UDP-GlcNAc onto the carrier lipid undecaprenyl phosphate (C55-P), yielding GlcNAc-pyrophosphoryl-undecaprenyl (GlcNAc-PP- C55). It is the first lipid-linked intermediate involved in enterobacterial common antigen (ECA) synthesis, and an acceptor for the addition of subsequent sugars to complete the biosynthesis of O-antigen lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in many E.coli O types. The apparent affinity of WecA for the polyisoprenyl phosphate substrates increase [...] (367 aa)
