STRINGSTRING
lepA protein (Bacillus cereus) - STRING interaction network
"lepA" - Elongation factor 4 in Bacillus cereus
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

lepAElongation factor 4; 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 (607 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
rplB
50S ribosomal protein L2; One of the primary rRNA binding proteins. Required for association of the 30S and 50S subunits to form the 70S ribosome, for tRNA binding and peptide bond formation. It has been suggested to have peptidyltransferase activity; this is somewhat controversial. Makes several contacts with the 16S rRNA in the 70S ribosome (276 aa)
   
 
  0.990
rplM
50S ribosomal protein L13; This protein is one of the early assembly proteins of the 50S ribosomal subunit, although it is not seen to bind rRNA by itself. It is important during the early stages of 50S assembly (145 aa)
 
 
  0.980
rpsI
annotation not available (130 aa)
 
 
  0.980
rplC
50S ribosomal protein L3; One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, it binds directly near the 3’-end of the 23S rRNA, where it nucleates assembly of the 50S subunit (210 aa)
   
 
  0.969
rplP
50S ribosomal protein L16; Binds 23S rRNA and is also seen to make contacts with the A and possibly P site tRNAs (144 aa)
   
 
  0.963
rplD
50S ribosomal protein L4; Forms part of the polypeptide exit tunnel (207 aa)
   
 
  0.957
rpsB
rpsB_bact- ribosomal protein S2; Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uS2 family (233 aa)
 
 
  0.954
rplE
50S ribosomal protein L5; This is one of the proteins that binds and probably mediates the attachment of the 5S RNA into the large ribosomal subunit, where it forms part of the central protuberance. In the 70S ribosome it contacts protein S13 of the 30S subunit (bridge B1b), connecting the two subunits; this bridge is implicated in subunit movement. Contacts the P site tRNA; the 5S rRNA and some of its associated proteins might help stabilize positioning of ribosome-bound tRNAs (By similarity) (179 aa)
   
 
  0.953
rplS
50S ribosomal protein L19; This protein is located at the 30S-50S ribosomal subunit interface and may play a role in the structure and function of the aminoacyl-tRNA binding site (114 aa)
 
 
  0.952
rplQ
L17- ribosomal protein L17 (120 aa)
   
 
  0.951
