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
ezrASeptation ring formation regulator EzrA; Negative regulator of FtsZ ring formation; modulates the frequency and position of FtsZ ring formation. Inhibits FtsZ ring formation at polar sites. Interacts either with FtsZ or with one of its binding partners to promote depolymerization; Belongs to the EzrA family. (567 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
UDP-N-acetylenolpyruvoylglucosamine reductase; Cell wall formation.
Cell division protein GpsB; Divisome component that associates with the complex late in its assembly, after the Z-ring is formed, and is dependent on DivIC and PBP2B for its recruitment to the divisome. Together with EzrA, is a key component of the system that regulates PBP1 localization during cell cycle progression. Its main role could be the removal of PBP1 from the cell pole after pole maturation is completed. Also contributes to the recruitment of PBP1 to the division complex. Not essential for septum formation.
Histidine kinase; Derived by automated computational analysis using gene prediction method: Protein Homology.
Derived by automated computational analysis using gene prediction method: Protein Homology.
Cell division protein FtsY; Involved in targeting and insertion of nascent membrane proteins into the cytoplasmic membrane. Acts as a receptor for the complex formed by the signal recognition particle (SRP) and the ribosome-nascent chain (RNC).
Cell division protein FtsQ; Cell division protein that may be involved in stabilizing or promoting the assembly of the division complex; Belongs to the FtsQ/DivIB family. DivIB subfamily.
UDP-N-acetylmuramoylalanyl-D-glutamate--2, 6-diaminopimelate ligase; Catalyzes the addition of an amino acid to the nucleotide precursor UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanyl-D-glutamate (UMAG) in the biosynthesis of bacterial cell-wall peptidoglycan.
Metal-binding protein; Derived by automated computational analysis using gene prediction method: Protein Homology.
DNA methyltransferase; Derived by automated computational analysis using gene prediction method: Protein Homology.
Thiamine biosynthesis protein ThiI; Catalyzes the ATP-dependent transfer of a sulfur to tRNA to produce 4-thiouridine in position 8 of tRNAs, which functions as a near-UV photosensor. Also catalyzes the transfer of sulfur to the sulfur carrier protein ThiS, forming ThiS-thiocarboxylate. This is a step in the synthesis of thiazole, in the thiamine biosynthesis pathway. The sulfur is donated as persulfide by IscS.
