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
metRLysr family transcriptional regulator, regulator for mete and meth; Control of the last step in methionine biosynthesis; MetR is a positive activator of the metA, metE and metH genes. MetR is also a negative regulator of its own expression. Binds homocysteine as an inducer (317 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
5-methyltetrahydropteroyltriglutamate- homocysteine S-methyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from 5- methyltetrahydrofolate to homocysteine resulting in methionine formation
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (nadph); Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase required to generate the methyl groups necessary for methionine synthetase to convert homocysteine to methionine
Metj family transcriptional regulator, methionine regulon repressor; This regulatory protein, when combined with SAM (S- adenosylmethionine) represses the expression of the methionine regulon and of enzymes involved in SAM synthesis. It is also autoregulated
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
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- [...]
S-methyl-l-methionine transporter; Transporter for the intake of S-methylmethionine
Homoserine o-succinyltransferase/o-acetyltransferase; Transfers a succinyl group from succinyl-CoA to L-homoserine, forming succinyl-L-homoserine Utilizes a ping-pong kinetic mechanism in which the succinyl group of succinyl-CoA is initially transferred to the enzyme to form a succinyl-enzyme intermediate before subsequent transfer to homoserine to form the final product, O- succinylhomoserine . Cannot use acetyl-CoA
Bifunctional aspartokinase / homoserine dehydrogenase 2; In the N-terminal section; belongs to the aspartokinase family
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
Methionine-oxo-acid transaminase, plp-dependent; Shows aminotransferase activity with methionine and histidine as substrates, and to a lesser extent also with phenylalanine
