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
metLBifunctional aspartokinase / homoserine dehydrogenase 2; In the N-terminal section; belongs to the aspartokinase family (810 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
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
Homoserine kinase; Catalyzes the ATP-dependent phosphorylation of L-homoserine to L-homoserine phosphate. Is also able to phosphorylate the hydroxy group on gamma-carbon of L-homoserine analogs when the functional group at the alpha-position is a carboxyl, an ester, or even a hydroxymethyl group. Neither L-threonine nor L-serine are substrates of the enzyme
Aspartate-semialdehyde dehydrogenase, nad(p)-binding; Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent formation of L-aspartate- semialdehyde (L-ASA) by the reductive dephosphorylation of L-aspartyl- 4-phosphate
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
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
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (nadph); Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase required to generate the methyl groups necessary for methionine synthetase to convert homocysteine to methionine
homocysteine-N5-methyltetrahydrofolate transmethylase, B12-dependent; Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from methyl- cobalamin to homocysteine, yielding enzyme-bound cob(I)alamin and methionine. Subsequently, remethylates the cofactor using methyltetrahydrofolate
Asparagine synthase (glutamine-hydrolysing); Catalyzes the ATP-dependent conversion of aspartate into asparagine, using glutamine as a source of nitrogen. Can also use ammonia as the nitrogen source in vitro, albeit with lower efficiency. As nucleotide substrates, ATP and dATP are utilized at a similar rate in both the glutamine- and ammonia-dependent reactions, whereas GTP utilization is only 15% that of ATP, and CTP, UTP, ITP and XTP are very poor or not substrates. Also exhibits glutaminase activity
4-hydroxy-tetrahydrodipicolinate synthase; Catalyzes the condensation of (S)-aspartate-beta-semialdehyde [(S)-ASA] and pyruvate to 4-hydroxy-tetrahydrodipicolinate (HTPA)
5-methyltetrahydropteroyltriglutamate- homocysteine S-methyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from 5- methyltetrahydrofolate to homocysteine resulting in methionine formation
