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

fumBAnaerobic class i fumarate hydratase (fumarase b); Catalyzes the reversible hydration of fumarate to (S)-malate. Functions in the generation of fumarate for use as an anaerobic electron acceptor. To a lesser extent, also displays D-tartrate dehydratase activity, but is not able to convert (R)-malate, L-tartrate or meso-tartrate. Is required for anaerobic growth on D-tartrate (548 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
fumC
Fumarate hydratase (fumarase c),aerobic class ii; Involved in the TCA cycle. FumC seems to be a backup enzyme for FumA under conditions of iron limitation and oxidative stress . Catalyzes the stereospecific interconversion of fumarate to L-malate
    
 0.991
sdhC
Succinate dehydrogenase / fumarate reductase, cytochrome b subunit; Membrane-anchoring subunit of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)
    
 0.986
dcuB
Anaerobic c4-dicarboxylate transporter dcub; Responsible for the transport of C4-dicarboxylates from the periplasm across the inner membrane
 
  
 0.986
frdA
Anaerobic fumarate reductase catalytic and nad/flavoprotein subunit; Two distinct, membrane-bound, FAD-containing enzymes are responsible for the catalysis of fumarate and succinate interconversion; the fumarate reductase is used in anaerobic growth, and the succinate dehydrogenase is used in aerobic growth
  
 
 0.978
sdhA
Succinate dehydrogenase / fumarate reductase, flavoprotein subunit; Two distinct, membrane-bound, FAD-containing enzymes are responsible for the catalysis of fumarate and succinate interconversion; the fumarate reductase is used in anaerobic growth, and the succinate dehydrogenase is used in aerobic growth
  
 
 0.976
mdh
Malate dehydrogenase, nad(p)-binding; Catalyzes the reversible oxidation of malate to oxaloacetate
  
 
 0.973
sdhB
Succinate:quinone oxidoreductase, iron-sulfur cluster binding protein; Two distinct, membrane-bound, FAD-containing enzymes are responsible for the catalysis of fumarate and succinate interconversion; the fumarate reductase is used in anaerobic growth, and the succinate dehydrogenase is used in aerobic growth
  
 
 0.964
maeB
Malate dehydrogenase (oxaloacetate-decarboxylating)(nadp+); In the N-terminal section; belongs to the malic enzymes family
 
 
 0.954
frdC
Fumarate reductase (anaerobic), membrane anchor subunit; Seems to be involved in the anchoring of the catalytic components of the fumarate reductase complex to the cytoplasmic membrane
   
 
 0.953
sdhD
Succinate dehydrogenase / fumarate reductase, membrane anchor subunit; Membrane-anchoring subunit of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)
  
 
 0.952
