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:
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
CHKBCholine/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)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
PCYT2
Ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase; Plays an important role in the biosynthesis of the phospholipid phosphatidylethanolamine. Catalyzes the formation of CDP-ethanolamine
  
 
 0.981
PCYT1B
Choline-phosphate cytidylyltransferase B; Controls phosphatidylcholine synthesis
  
 
 0.972
PCYT1A
Choline-phosphate cytidylyltransferase A; Controls phosphatidylcholine synthesis; Belongs to the cytidylyltransferase family
  
 
 0.960
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
   
 
 0.944
CPT1B
Carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase 1, muscle isoform; Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1B
   
  
 0.922
ETNPPL
Ethanolamine-phosphate phospho-lyase; Catalyzes the pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent breakdown of phosphoethanolamine, converting it to ammonia, inorganic phosphate and acetaldehyde
   
 
 0.912
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
     
0.903
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
   
 
 0.903
CHAT
Choline O-acetyltransferase; Catalyzes the reversible synthesis of acetylcholine (ACh) from acetyl CoA and choline at cholinergic synapses; Belongs to the carnitine/choline acetyltransferase family
     
 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
