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:
a 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

OTCOrnithine carbamoyltransferase, mitochondrial; Ornithine carbamoyltransferase; Belongs to the aspartate/ornithine carbamoyltransferase superfamily. OTCase family. (354 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ASS1
Argininosuccinate synthase; One of the enzymes of the urea cycle, the metabolic pathway transforming neurotoxic amonia produced by protein catabolism into inocuous urea in the liver of ureotelic animals. Catalyzes the formation of arginosuccinate from aspartate, citrulline and ATP and together with ASL it is responsible for the biosynthesis of arginine in most body tissues; Belongs to the argininosuccinate synthase family. Type 1 subfamily.
  
 
 0.999
CPS1
Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase [ammonia], mitochondrial; Involved in the urea cycle of ureotelic animals where the enzyme plays an important role in removing excess ammonia from the cell.
 
 
 0.998
ARG2
Arginase-2, mitochondrial; May play a role in the regulation of extra-urea cycle arginine metabolism and also in down-regulation of nitric oxide synthesis. Extrahepatic arginase functions to regulate L-arginine bioavailability to nitric oxid synthase (NOS). Arginine metabolism is a critical regulator of innate and adaptive immune responses. Seems to be involved in negative regulation of the survival capacity of activated CD4(+) and CD8(+) T cells. May suppress inflammation- related signaling in asthmatic airway epithelium. May contribute to the immune evasion of H.pylori by restricting [...]
   
 0.993
ARG1
Arginase-1; Key element of the urea cycle converting L-arginine to urea and L-ornithine, which is further metabolized into metabolites proline and polyamides that drive collagen synthesis and bioenergetic pathways critical for cell proliferation, respectively; the urea cycle takes place primarily in the liver and, to a lesser extent, in the kidneys. Belongs to the arginase family.
   
 0.993
OAT
Ornithine aminotransferase, mitochondrial; Ornithine aminotransferase.
 
 
 0.989
GBE1
1,4-alpha-glucan-branching enzyme; Required for normal glycogen accumulation. The alpha 1-6 branches of glycogen play an important role in increasing the solubility of the molecule (Probable); Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 13 family. GlgB subfamily.
  
 
 0.984
NAGS
N-acetylglutamate synthase conserved domain form; Plays a role in the regulation of ureagenesis by producing the essential cofactor N-acetylglutamate (NAG), thus modulating carbamoylphosphate synthase I (CPS1) activity. Belongs to the acetyltransferase family.
  
 
 0.977
CAD
Glutamine-dependent carbamoyl-phosphate synthase; This protein is a 'fusion' protein encoding four enzymatic activities of the pyrimidine pathway (GATase, CPSase, ATCase and DHOase); In the central section; belongs to the metallo-dependent hydrolases superfamily. DHOase family. CAD subfamily.
   
0.975
ACY1
Aminoacylase-1; Involved in the hydrolysis of N-acylated or N-acetylated amino acids (except L-aspartate); Belongs to the peptidase M20A family.
  
 
 0.966
ASL
Argininosuccinate lyase.
 
  
 0.963
