STRINGSTRING
wecB protein (Yersinia pseudotuberculosis) - STRING interaction network
"wecB" - UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 2-epimerase in Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
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

wecBUDP-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 (376 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
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)
 
  0.999
rfbB
dTDP_gluc_dehyt- dTDP-glucose 4,6-dehydratase; Belongs to the NAD(P)-dependent epimerase/dehydratase family. dTDP-glucose dehydratase subfamily (355 aa)
 
 
  0.954
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) (365 aa)
   
  0.954
glmU
Bifunctional protein GlmU; Catalyzes the last two sequential reactions in the de novo biosynthetic pathway for UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP- GlcNAc). The C-terminal domain catalyzes the transfer of acetyl group from acetyl coenzyme A to glucosamine-1-phosphate (GlcN-1-P) to produce N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate (GlcNAc-1-P), which is converted into UDP-GlcNAc by the transfer of uridine 5- monophosphate (from uridine 5-triphosphate), a reaction catalyzed by the N-terminal domain (456 aa)
   
 
  0.926
rffM
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)
 
     
  0.924
murA
UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 1-carboxyvinyltransferase; Cell wall formation. Adds enolpyruvyl to UDP-N- acetylglucosamine; Belongs to the EPSP synthase family. MurA subfamily (420 aa)
   
 
    0.914
lpxA
Acyl-[acyl-carrier-protein]--UDP-N-acetylglucosamine O-acyltransferase; Involved in the biosynthesis of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell (262 aa)
       
    0.818
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 (361 aa)
          0.812
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; Belongs to the DegT/DnrJ/EryC1 family (376 aa)
   
  0.809
wecD
dTDP-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 (245 aa)
