Known metabolic pathways, protein complexes, signal transduction pathways, etc ... from curated databases.
Groups of genes that are frequently observed in each other's genomic neighborhood.
Automated, unsupervised textmining - searching for proteins that are frequently mentioned together.
Genes that are sometimes fused into single open reading frames.
STRING allows inspection of the interaction evidence for any given network. Choose any of the viewers above (disabled if not applicable in your 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.
colored nodes: query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes: second shell of interactors
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 each other.

Circadian clock protein KaiA; Component of the KaiABC clock protein complex, which constitutes the main circadian regulator in cyanobacteria. The KaiABC complex may act as a promoter-nonspecific transcription regulator that represses transcription, possibly by acting on the state of chromosome compaction. In the complex, it enhances the phosphorylation status of KaiC. In contrast, the presence of KaiB in the complex decreases the phosphorylation status of KaiC, suggesting that KaiB acts by antagonizing the interaction between KaiA and KaiC. A KaiA dimer is sufficient to enhance KaiC he [...] (284 aa)
