STRINGSTRING
ybaC protein (Escherichia coli CFT073) - STRING interaction network
"ybaC" - Acetyl esterase in Escherichia coli CFT073
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

Score
ybaCAcetyl esterase; Displays esterase activity towards short chain fatty esters (acyl chain length of up to 8 carbons). Able to hydrolyze triacetylglycerol (triacetin) and tributyrylglycerol (tributyrin), but not trioleylglycerol (triolein) or cholesterol oleate. Negatively regulates MalT activity by antagonizing maltotriose binding. Inhibits MelA galactosidase activity (319 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
caiB
L-carnitine CoA-transferase; Catalyzes the reversible transfer of the CoA moiety from gamma-butyrobetainyl-CoA to L-carnitine to generate L-carnitinyl- CoA and gamma-butyrobetaine. Is also able to catalyze the reversible transfer of the CoA moiety from gamma-butyrobetainyl- CoA or L-carnitinyl-CoA to crotonobetaine to generate crotonobetainyl-CoA; Belongs to the CaiB/BaiF CoA-transferase family (405 aa)
 
        0.740
caiC
Probable crotonobetaine/carnitine-CoA ligase; Could catalyze the transfer of CoA to carnitine, generating the initial carnitinyl-CoA needed for the CaiB reaction cycle (522 aa)
 
        0.714
caiA
Crotonobetainyl-CoA reductase; Catalyzes the reduction of crotonobetainyl-CoA to gamma- butyrobetainyl-CoA; Belongs to the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family (380 aa)
 
        0.644
yaaU
Hypothetical metabolite transport protein yaaU; Escherichia coli K-12 ortholog- b0045; Escherichia coli O157-H7 ortholog- z0051 (443 aa)
 
          0.615
fixX
Ferredoxin-like protein FixX; Could be part of an electron transfer system required for anaerobic carnitine reduction. Could be a 3Fe-4S cluster- containing protein (By similarity) (95 aa)
   
        0.569
gsk
Inosine-guanosine kinase; Escherichia coli K-12 ortholog- b0477; Escherichia coli O157-H7 ortholog- z0596; Belongs to the carbohydrate kinase PfkB family (434 aa)
              0.568
fixA
Protein FixA; Required for anaerobic carnitine reduction. May bring reductant to CaiA (277 aa)
   
          0.558
nanA
N-acetylneuraminate lyase 1; Catalyzes the reversible aldol cleavage of N- acetylneuraminic acid (sialic acid; Neu5Ac) to form pyruvate and N-acetylmannosamine (ManNAc) via a Schiff base intermediate (297 aa)
   
   
  0.545
caiF
Transcriptional activatory protein caiF; Escherichia coli K-12 ortholog- b0034; Escherichia coli O157-H7 ortholog- z0040 (166 aa)
   
          0.536
malT
HTH-type transcriptional regulator MalT; Positively regulates the transcription of the maltose regulon whose gene products are responsible for uptake and catabolism of malto-oligosaccharides. Binds and recognizes a DNA motif (called the malT box)- 5’-GGA[TG]GA-3’ (901 aa)
       
 
  0.534
