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:
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 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

epsCPolysaccharide biosynthesis protein epsc; Involved in biofilm formation (598 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
epsM
Putative o-acetyltransferase; Catalyzes the conversion of UDP-2,4,6-trideoxy-2-acetamido-4- amino glucose to UDP-2,4,6-trideoxy-2,4-diacetamido glucose, commonly known as UDP-N,N'-diacetylbacillosamine (UDP-diNAcBac)
 
   
 0.997
epsN
Pyridoxal phosphate-dependent aminotransferase epsn; May be involved in the production of the exopolysaccharide (EPS) component of the extracellular matrix during biofilm formation. EPS is responsible for the adhesion of chains of cells into bundles
  
 0.996
epsL
Putative phosphotransferase involved in extracellular matrix synthesis; May be involved in the production of the exopolysaccharide (EPS) component of the extracellular matrix during biofilm formation. EPS is responsible for the adhesion of chains of cells into bundles
  
 0.996
epsB
Tyrosine-protein kinase yvel; Belongs to the CpsD/CapB family
 
  
 0.984
epsF
Putative glycosyltransferase involved in extracellular matrix formation; May be involved in the production of the exopolysaccharide (EPS) component of the extracellular matrix during biofilm formation. EPS is responsible for the adhesion of chains of cells into bundles. Required for biofilm maintenance
 
  
 0.973
epsD
Putative extracellular matrix biosynthesis enzyme; May be involved in the production of the exopolysaccharide (EPS) component of the extracellular matrix during biofilm formation. EPS is responsible for the adhesion of chains of cells into bundles. Required for biofilm maintenance
 
  
 0.973
epsE
Bifunctional flagellar clutch and glycosyltransferase; May be involved in the production of the exopolysaccharide (EPS) component of the extracellular matrix during biofilm formation. EPS is responsible for the adhesion of chains of cells into bundles. Required for biofilm maintenance
 
   
 0.947
epsA
Uncharacterized protein YveK; Evidence 2b: Function of strongly homologous gene; Product type r : regulator
 
  
 0.945
epsJ
Putative glycosyl transferase; May be involved in the production of the exopolysaccharide (EPS) component of the extracellular matrix during biofilm formation. EPS is responsible for the adhesion of chains of cells into bundles
     
 0.924
spsC
Spore coat polysaccharide biosynthesis protein spsc; Belongs to the DegT/DnrJ/EryC1 family
