STRINGSTRING
CHAT protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"CHAT" - Choline O-acetyltransferase 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

CHATCholine O-acetyltransferase; Catalyzes the reversible synthesis of acetylcholine (ACh) from acetyl CoA and choline at cholinergic synapses; Belongs to the carnitine/choline acetyltransferase family (748 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SLC18A3
Vesicular acetylcholine transporter; Involved in acetylcholine transport into synaptic vesicles; Solute carriers (532 aa)
 
 
   
  0.956
ACHE
Acetylcholinesterase; Terminates signal transduction at the neuromuscular junction by rapid hydrolysis of the acetylcholine released into the synaptic cleft. Role in neuronal apoptosis; Belongs to the type-B carboxylesterase/lipase family (617 aa)
     
   
  0.941
CHKA
Choline kinase alpha; Has a key role in phospholipid biosynthesis and may contribute to tumor cell growth. Catalyzes the first step in phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis. Contributes to phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis. Phosphorylates choline and ethanolamine. Has higher activity with choline (457 aa)
     
 
  0.931
GPCPD1
Glycerophosphocholine phosphodiesterase GPCPD1; May be involved in the negative regulation of skeletal muscle differentiation, independently of its glycerophosphocholine phosphodiesterase activity; Belongs to the glycerophosphoryl diester phosphodiesterase family (672 aa)
     
 
  0.904
CHKB
Choline/ethanolamine kinase; Has a key role in phospholipid biosynthesis. Catalyzes the first step in phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis. Phosphorylates ethanolamine, and can also act on choline (in vitro). Has higher activity with ethanolamine. May not significantly contribute to in vivo phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis; Belongs to the choline/ethanolamine kinase family (395 aa)
         
  0.903
PHOSPHO1
Phosphoethanolamine/phosphocholine phosphatase; Phosphatase that has a high activity toward phosphoethanolamine (PEA) and phosphocholine (PCho). Involved in the generation of inorganic phosphate for bone mineralization; HAD Asp-based non-protein phosphatases (292 aa)
         
    0.900
TH
Tyrosine 3-monooxygenase; Plays an important role in the physiology of adrenergic neurons; Belongs to the biopterin-dependent aromatic amino acid hydroxylase family (528 aa)
     
   
  0.887
SLC25A20
Mitochondrial carnitine/acylcarnitine carrier protein; Mediates the transport of acylcarnitines of different length across the mitochondrial inner membrane from the cytosol to the mitochondrial matrix for their oxidation by the mitochondrial fatty acid-oxidation pathway; Solute carriers (301 aa)
     
   
  0.874
HSD17B4
Peroxisomal multifunctional enzyme type 2; Bifunctional enzyme acting on the peroxisomal beta- oxidation pathway for fatty acids. Catalyzes the formation of 3- ketoacyl-CoA intermediates from both straight-chain and 2-methyl- branched-chain fatty acids; Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily (761 aa)
     
   
  0.872
BCHE
Cholinesterase; Esterase with broad substrate specificity. Contributes to the inactivation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Can degrade neurotoxic organophosphate esters; Belongs to the type-B carboxylesterase/lipase family (602 aa)
     
   
  0.843
