STRINGSTRING
GALK1 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"GALK1" - Galactokinase 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

GALK1Galactokinase; Major enzyme for galactose metabolism; Belongs to the GHMP kinase family. GalK subfamily (392 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GALT
Galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase; Plays an important role in galactose metabolism (379 aa)
  0.999
GALM
Aldose 1-epimerase; Mutarotase converts alpha-aldose to the beta-anomer. It is active on D-glucose, L-arabinose, D-xylose, D-galactose, maltose and lactose (By similarity) (342 aa)
  0.998
GALE
UDP-glucose 4-epimerase; Catalyzes two distinct but analogous reactions- the reversible epimerization of UDP-glucose to UDP-galactose and the reversible epimerization of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine to UDP-N- acetylgalactosamine. The reaction with UDP-Gal plays a critical role in the Leloir pathway of galactose catabolism in which galactose is converted to the glycolytic intermediate glucose 6- phosphate. It contributes to the catabolism of dietary galactose and enables the endogenous biosynthesis of both UDP-Gal and UDP- GalNAc when exogenous sources are limited. Both UDP-sugar interconver [...] (348 aa)
 
 
  0.988
MVK
Mevalonate kinase; May be a regulatory site in cholesterol biosynthetic pathway; Belongs to the GHMP kinase family. Mevalonate kinase subfamily (396 aa)
     
   
  0.853
ENSG00000258728
Uncharacterized protein (280 aa)
 
 
  0.853
TK1
Thymidine kinase, cytosolic; Thymidine kinase 1; Belongs to the thymidine kinase family (234 aa)
     
   
  0.799
UGP2
UTP--glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase; Plays a central role as a glucosyl donor in cellular metabolic pathways; Belongs to the UDPGP type 1 family (508 aa)
   
   
  0.757
DHDH
Dihydrodiol dehydrogenase; Belongs to the Gfo/Idh/MocA family (334 aa)
   
 
  0.750
UGDH
UDP-glucose 6-dehydrogenase; Involved in the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans; hyaluronan, chondroitin sulfate, and heparan sulfate (494 aa)
     
   
  0.713
SLC35A2
UDP-galactose translocator; Transports nucleotide sugars from the cytosol into Golgi vesicles where glycosyltransferases function; Belongs to the nucleotide-sugar transporter family. SLC35A subfamily (421 aa)
