STRINGSTRING
AACS protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"AACS" - Acetoacetyl-CoA synthetase in Homo sapiens
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

Score
AACSAcetoacetyl-CoA synthetase; Activates acetoacetate to acetoacetyl-CoA. May be involved in utilizing ketone body for the fatty acid-synthesis during adipose tissue development (By similarity); Belongs to the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family (672 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ACAT1
Acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase, mitochondrial; Plays a major role in ketone body metabolism (427 aa)
   
 
  0.955
HMGCS1
Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA synthase, cytoplasmic; This enzyme condenses acetyl-CoA with acetoacetyl-CoA to form HMG-CoA, which is the substrate for HMG-CoA reductase (520 aa)
     
 
  0.950
HMGCS2
Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA synthase, mitochondrial; This enzyme condenses acetyl-CoA with acetoacetyl-CoA to form HMG-CoA, which is the substrate for HMG-CoA reductase (508 aa)
     
 
  0.947
BDH1
D-beta-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase, mitochondrial; Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily; Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family (343 aa)
     
 
  0.937
ACAT2
Acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase, cytosolic; acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase 2 (397 aa)
   
 
  0.935
HMGCL
Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA lyase, mitochondrial; Key enzyme in ketogenesis (ketone body formation). Terminal step in leucine catabolism. Ketone bodies (beta- hydroxybutyrate, acetoacetate and acetone) are essential as an alternative source of energy to glucose, as lipid precursors and as regulators of metabolism (325 aa)
   
 
  0.932
HADH
Hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase, mitochondrial; Plays an essential role in the mitochondrial beta- oxidation of short chain fatty acids. Exerts it highest activity toward 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA; Belongs to the 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase family (331 aa)
   
 
  0.931
BDH2
3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase type 2; Dehydrogenase that mediates the formation of 2,5- dihydroxybenzoic acid (2,5-DHBA), a siderophore that shares structural similarities with bacterial enterobactin and associates with LCN2, thereby playing a key role in iron homeostasis and transport. Also acts as a 3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (By similarity); Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily (245 aa)
     
 
  0.922
HMGCLL1
3-hydroxymethyl-3-methylglutaryl-CoA lyase, cytoplasmic; Non-mitochondrial 3-hydroxymethyl-3-methylglutaryl-CoA lyase that catalyzes a cation-dependent cleavage of (S)-3-hydroxy- 3-methylglutaryl-CoA into acetyl-CoA and acetoacetate, a key step in ketogenesis, the products of which support energy production in nonhepatic animal tissues (370 aa)
   
 
  0.915
EHHADH
Peroxisomal bifunctional enzyme; enoyl-CoA hydratase and 3-hydroxyacyl CoA dehydrogenase; In the C-terminal section; belongs to the 3- hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase family (723 aa)
     
 
  0.912
