ftsZ protein (Synechococcus elongatus PCC7942) - STRING interaction network
"ftsZ" - Cell division protein FtsZ in Synechococcus elongatus PCC7942
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

ftsZCell division protein FtsZ; Essential cell division protein that forms a contractile ring structure (Z ring) at the future cell division site. The regulation of the ring assembly controls the timing and the location of cell division. One of the functions of the FtsZ ring is to recruit other cell division proteins to the septum to produce a new cell wall between the dividing cells. Binds GTP and shows GTPase activity (393 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
sepF
Cell division protein SepF; Cell division protein that is part of the divisome complex and is recruited early to the Z-ring. Probably stimulates Z-ring formation, perhaps through the cross-linking of FtsZ protofilaments. Its function overlaps with FtsA (191 aa)
   
 
  0.943
thiD
Hydroxymethylpyrimidine/phosphomethylpyrimidine kinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of hydroxymethylpyrimidine phosphate (HMP-P) to HMP-PP, and of HMP to HMP-P (263 aa)
         
  0.936
minC
Probable septum site-determining protein MinC; Cell division inhibitor that blocks the formation of polar Z ring septums. Rapidly oscillates between the poles of the cell to destabilize FtsZ filaments that have formed before they mature into polar Z rings. Prevents FtsZ polymerization (272 aa)
       
 
  0.922
recA
Protein RecA; Can catalyze the hydrolysis of ATP in the presence of single-stranded DNA, the ATP-dependent uptake of single-stranded DNA by duplex DNA, and the ATP-dependent hybridization of homologous single-stranded DNAs. It interacts with LexA causing its activation and leading to its autocatalytic cleavage (356 aa)
   
 
  0.868
kaiC
Circadian clock protein kinase KaiC; Core component of the KaiABC clock protein complex, which constitutes the main circadian regulator in cyanobacteria. Binds to DNA. The KaiABC complex may act as a promoter-nonspecific transcription regulator that represses transcription, possibly by acting on the state of chromosome compaction (519 aa)
           
  0.856
dnaA
Chromosomal replication initiator protein DnaA; Plays an important role in the initiation and regulation of chromosomal replication. Binds to the origin of replication; it binds specifically double-stranded DNA at a 9 bp consensus (dnaA box)- 5’-TTATC[CA]A[CA]A-3’. DnaA binds to ATP and to acidic phospholipids (482 aa)
           
  0.855
kaiB
Circadian clock protein KaiB; Component of the KaiABC clock protein complex, which constitutes the main circadian regulator in cyanobacteria. The KaiABC complex may act as a promoter-non-specific transcription regulator that represses transcription, possibly by acting on the state of chromosome compaction. In the complex, it decreases the phosphorylation status of KaiC. It has no effect on KaiC by itself, but instead need the presence of both KaiA and KaiC, suggesting that it acts by antagonizing the interaction between KaiA and KaiC (102 aa)
           
  0.853
kaiA
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)

rsmH
Ribosomal RNA small subunit methyltransferase H; Specifically methylates the N4 position of cytidine in position 1402 (C1402) of 16S rRNA (296 aa)
