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
lytDExported N-acetylglucosaminidase (major autolysin) (CWBP90); Cell wall hydrolase not involved in cell autolysis, competence, sporulation or germination. It hydrolyzes the beta-1,4 glycan bond between the N-acetylglucosaminyl and the N-acetylmuramoyl residues in the glycan chain. (880 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Putative undecaprenyl-phosphate N-acetylgalactosaminyl-1-phosphate transferase; Autolysins are cell wall hydrolases involved in some important biological processes such as cell separation, cell-wall turnover, competence for genetic transformation, formation of the flagella - in particular of its basal body - and sporulation. Has a high affinity for teichoic acid-endowed peptidoglycan. LytC is required for efficient swarming motility but not at the level of cell separation or flagellum biosynthesis. Rather, LytC appears to be important for proper flagellar function.
gamma-D-glutamate-meso-diaminopimelate muropeptidase (major autolysin); Cell wall hydrolase that cleaves gamma-D-glutamate-meso- diaminopimelate bonds in peptidoglycan. LytF is necessary and sufficient for vegetative daughter cell separation, and also seems to play a role in cell autolysis.
Cell wall hydrolase; Cell wall hydrolase that cleaves gamma-D-glutamate-meso- diaminopimelate bonds in peptidoglycan (By similarity). Seems to play a role in cell separation during vegetative growth.
N-acetylglucosaminidase lipoprotein; Plays a role in peptidoglycan recycling by cleaving the terminal beta-1,4-linked N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) from peptide- linked peptidoglycan fragments, giving rise to free GlcNAc, anhydro-N- acetylmuramic acid and anhydro-N-acetylmuramic acid-linked peptides. Cleaves muropeptides, but not peptidoglycan. Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 3 family.
dTDP-4-deoxyrhamnose-3,5-epimerase; Evidence 2a: Function of homologous gene experimentally demonstrated in an other organism; Product type e: enzyme.
Exoglucosaminidase; Is the major glucosaminidase responsible for peptidoglycan structural determination during vegetative growth. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of 1,4-beta-linkages between N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and N- acetylmuramic acid residues in peptidoglycan. Acts processively from the ends of the glycan strands. Also plays a role in motility, chemotaxis and cell division.
RNA polymerase sigma-28 factor (sigma-D); Sigma factors are initiation factors that promote the attachment of RNA polymerase to specific initiation sites and are then released. This alternative sigma factor is required for the transcription of the flagellin and motility genes as well as for wild- type chemotaxis.
gamma-DD-glutamyl hydrolase (PGA depolymerase); Cleaves, in an endo-type manner, the gamma-glutamyl bond between D-glutamate and L-glutamate of poly-gamma-glutamate (PGA).
Extracellular serine protease; Evidence 1a: Function experimentally demonstrated in the studied strain; Product type e: enzyme; Belongs to the peptidase S8 family.
Membrane bound lipoprotein; Possible role in the secretion of LytB and LytC.
