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

glpKGlycerol kinase; Key enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism. Catalyzes the phosphorylation of glycerol to yield sn- glycerol 3-phosphate. It also catalyzes the phosphorylation of dihydroxyacetone, L-glyceraldehyde and D-glyceraldehyde. It uses only ATP (502 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
crr
Glucose-specific enzyme iia component of pts; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane . The enzyme II complex composed of PtsG and Crr is involved in glucose transport . The non-phosphorylated EIII-Glc is an inhibitor for uptake of certain sugars such as maltose, melibiose, lactose, and glycerol. Phosphorylated EIII-Glc, however, may be an activator for adenylate cyclase. It is an [...]

glpD
sn-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, aerobic, FAD/NAD(P)-binding; Conversion of glycerol 3-phosphate to dihydroxyacetone. Uses molecular oxygen or nitrate as electron acceptor
 0.999
glpF
Glycerol uptake facilitator protein; Transporter of glycerol across the cytoplasmic membrane, with limited permeability to water and small uncharged compounds such as polyols
  
 0.999
glpA
Anaerobic sn-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, large fad/nad(p)-binding subunit; Conversion of glycerol 3-phosphate to dihydroxyacetone. Uses fumarate or nitrate as electron acceptor
 0.994
gldA
L-1,2-propanediol dehydrogenase/glycerol dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the NAD-dependent oxidation of glycerol to dihydroxyacetone (glycerone). Allows microorganisms to utilize glycerol as a source of carbon under anaerobic conditions. In E.coli, an important role of GldA is also likely to regulate the intracellular level of dihydroxyacetone by catalyzing the reverse reaction, i.e. the conversion of dihydroxyacetone into glycerol. Possesses a broad substrate specificity, since it is also able to oxidize 1,2-propanediol and to reduce glycolaldehyde, methylglyoxal and hydroxyacetone into ethy [...]

glpC
Anaerobic sn-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, c subunit, 4fe-4s iron-sulfur cluster; Electron transfer protein; may also function as the membrane anchor for the GlpAB dimer
 
 
 0.956
plsY
Acyl phosphate:glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of an acyl group from acyl-ACP to glycerol-3-phosphate (G3P) to form lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). This enzyme can also utilize acyl-CoA as fatty acyl donor, but not acyl- PO(4) (Probable)
     
 0.952
glpQ
Glycerophosphoryl diester phosphodiesterase hydrolyzes deacylated phospholipids to G3P and the corresponding alcohols
 
  
 0.948
glpB
Anaerobic sn-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase membrane anchor subunit; Conversion of glycerol 3-phosphate to dihydroxyacetone. Uses fumarate or nitrate as electron acceptor
 
 
  0.944
plsB
Glycerol-3-phosphate 1-O-acyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of an acyl group from acyl-ACP to glycerol-3-phosphate (G3P) to form lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). This enzyme can utilize either acyl-CoA or acyl-ACP as the fatty acyl donor
