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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
SLC25A38Solute carrier family 25 member 38; Mitochondrial carrier required during erythropoiesis. Probably involved in the biosynthesis of heme, possibly by facilitating 5-aminolevulinate (ALA) production. May act by importing glycine into mitochondria or by exchanging glycine for ALA across the mitochondrial inner membrane; Belongs to the mitochondrial carrier (TC 2.A.29) family. SLC25A38 subfamily (304 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Glutaredoxin-related protein 5, mitochondrial; Monothiol glutaredoxin involved in the biogenesis of iron-sulfur clusters. Involved in protein lipoylation, acting in the pathway that provides an iron-sulfur cluster to lipoate synthase. Required for normal iron homeostasis. Required for normal regulation of hemoglobin synthesis by the iron-sulfur protein ACO1. May protect cells against apoptosis due to reactive oxygen species and oxidative stress (By similarity)
Protoporphyrinogen oxidase; Catalyzes the 6-electron oxidation of protoporphyrinogen-IX to form protoporphyrin-IX
5-aminolevulinate synthase, erythroid-specific, mitochondrial; 5'-aminolevulinate synthase 2
ATP-binding cassette sub-family B member 7, mitochondrial; Could be involved in the transport of heme from the mitochondria to the cytosol. Plays a central role in the maturation of cytosolic iron-sulfur (Fe/S) cluster-containing proteins; ATP binding cassette subfamily B
Ferrochelatase, mitochondrial; Catalyzes the ferrous insertion into protoporphyrin IX; Belongs to the ferrochelatase family
Oxygen-dependent coproporphyrinogen-III oxidase, mitochondrial; Involved in the heme biosynthesis. Catalyzes the aerobic oxidative decarboxylation of propionate groups of rings A and B of coproporphyrinogen-III to yield the vinyl groups in protoporphyrinogen-IX
Uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase; Catalyzes the decarboxylation of four acetate groups of uroporphyrinogen-III to yield coproporphyrinogen-III
Delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase; Catalyzes an early step in the biosynthesis of tetrapyrroles. Binds two molecules of 5-aminolevulinate per subunit, each at a distinct site, and catalyzes their condensation to form porphobilinogen; Belongs to the ALAD family
Uroporphyrinogen-III synthase; Catalyzes cyclization of the linear tetrapyrrole, hydroxymethylbilane, to the macrocyclic uroporphyrinogen III, the branch point for the various sub-pathways leading to the wide diversity of porphyrins. Porphyrins act as cofactors for a multitude of enzymes that perform a variety of processes within the cell such as methionine synthesis (vitamin B12) or oxygen transport (heme)
ATP-binding cassette sub-family B member 6, mitochondrial; Binds heme and porphyrins and functions in their ATP- dependent uptake into the mitochondria. Plays a crucial role in heme synthesis; Belongs to the ABC transporter superfamily. ABCB family. Heavy Metal importer (TC 3.A.1.210) subfamily
