STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

tufAElongation factor Tu; This protein promotes the GTP-dependent binding of aminoacyl- tRNA to the A-site of ribosomes during protein biosynthesis. (396 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
tsf
Elongation factor Ts; Associates with the EF-Tu.GDP complex and induces the exchange of GDP to GTP. It remains bound to the aminoacyl-tRNA.EF- Tu.GTP complex up to the GTP hydrolysis stage on the ribosome (By similarity); Belongs to the EF-Ts family.

rpsL
Ribosomal protein S12 (BS12); With S4 and S5 plays an important role in translational accuracy.
 0.998
rpsG
Ribosomal protein S7 (BS7); One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, it binds directly to 16S rRNA where it nucleates assembly of the head domain of the 30S subunit. Is located at the subunit interface close to the decoding center, probably blocks exit of the E-site tRNA; Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uS7 family.
 0.998
fusA
Elongation factor G; Catalyzes the GTP-dependent ribosomal translocation step during translation elongation. During this step, the ribosome changes from the pre-translocational (PRE) to the post-translocational (POST) state as the newly formed A-site-bound peptidyl-tRNA and P-site-bound deacylated tRNA move to the P and E sites, respectively. Catalyzes the coordinated movement of the two tRNA molecules, the mRNA and conformational changes in the ribosome (By similarity).
 
0.998
rpsJ
Ribosomal protein S10 (BS13); Involved in the binding of tRNA to the ribosomes. Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uS10 family.
 0.998
rplC
Ribosomal protein L3 (BL3); 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 (By similarity). Strongly stimulates 23S rRNA precursor processing by mini-ribonuclease 3 (MrnC); 20-30% DMSO can replace L3, suggesting the protein may alter rRNA conformation; Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uL3 family.
 
 0.997
rplB
Ribosomal protein L2 (BL2); 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. Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uL2 family.
 
 0.997
rpsM
Ribosomal protein S13; Located at the top of the head of the 30S subunit, it contacts several helices of the 16S rRNA. In the 70S ribosome it contacts the 23S rRNA (bridge B1a) and protein L5 of the 50S subunit (bridge B1b), connecting the 2 subunits; these bridges are implicated in subunit movement. Contacts the tRNAs in the A and P-sites. Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uS13 family.

rpsB
Ribosomal protein S2; Evidence 2a: Function of homologous gene experimentally demonstrated in an other organism; structure.
   
 0.997
rplK
Ribosomal protein L11 (BL11); Forms part of the ribosomal stalk which helps the ribosome interact with GTP-bound translation factors; Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uL11 family.
