STRING protein interaction 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.
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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
engDGTP-dependent nucleic acid-binding protein engD; ATPase that binds to both the 70S ribosome and the 50S ribosomal subunit in a nucleotide-independent manner. (367 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase beta chain; Belongs to the phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase beta subunit family. Type 1 subfamily.
peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase; The natural substrate for this enzyme may be peptidyl-tRNAs which drop off the ribosome during protein synthesis. Belongs to the PTH family.
Putative threonine aldolase (ltaE); Function proposed based on presence of conserved amino acid motif, structural feature or limited homology; putative enzyme.
Peptide chain release factor 1; Peptide chain release factor 1 directs the termination of translation in response to the peptide chain termination codons UAG and UAA.
GMP synthetase; Catalyzes the synthesis of GMP from XMP.
Ribosomal elongation factor, GTPase; Required for accurate and efficient protein synthesis under certain stress conditions. May act as a fidelity factor of the translation reaction, by catalyzing a one-codon backward translocation of tRNAs on improperly translocated ribosomes. Back-translocation proceeds from a post-translocation (POST) complex to a pre- translocation (PRE) complex, thus giving elongation factor G a second chance to translocate the tRNAs correctly. Binds to ribosomes in a GTP- dependent manner.
Arginyl-tRNA synthetase (modular protein); Belongs to the class-I aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family.
Ribosomal RNA small subunit methyltransferase A; Specifically dimethylates two adjacent adenosines (A1518 and A1519) in the loop of a conserved hairpin near the 3'-end of 16S rRNA in the 30S particle. May play a critical role in biogenesis of 30S subunits.
Initiation factor IF-2; One of the essential components for the initiation of protein synthesis. Protects formylmethionyl-tRNA from spontaneous hydrolysis and promotes its binding to the 30S ribosomal subunits. Also involved in the hydrolysis of GTP during the formation of the 70S ribosomal complex; Belongs to the TRAFAC class translation factor GTPase superfamily. Classic translation factor GTPase family. IF-2 subfamily.
Putative pyrophosphohydrolase; Function proposed based on presence of conserved amino acid motif, structural feature or limited homology; Belongs to the Nudix hydrolase family.
