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:
some 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
gpsIPolyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase; Involved in mRNA degradation. Catalyzes the phosphorolysis of single-stranded polyribonucleotides processively in the 3'- to 5'- direction (763 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ribonuclease, rne/rng family; Endoribonuclease that plays a central role in RNA processing and decay. Plays a major role in pre-16S rRNA maturation, probably generating the mature 5'-end, and a minor role in pre-5S and pre-23S rRNA maturation
Enolase; Catalyzes the reversible conversion of 2-phosphoglycerate into phosphoenolpyruvate. It is essential for the degradation of carbohydrates via glycolysis
Zinc protease pepr; Belongs to the peptidase M16 family
Small subunit ribosomal protein s15; One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, it binds directly to 16S rRNA where it helps nucleate assembly of the platform of the 30S subunit by binding and bridging several RNA helices of the 16S rRNA
Poly(a) polymerase pcna; Belongs to the tRNA nucleotidyltransferase/poly(A) polymerase family
annotation not available
Dna-directed rna polymerase subunit alpha; DNA-dependent RNA polymerase catalyzes the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates
Large subunit ribosomal protein l20; Binds directly to 23S ribosomal RNA and is necessary for the in vitro assembly process of the 50S ribosomal subunit. It is not involved in the protein synthesizing functions of that subunit
Recombination protein reca; Required for homologous recombination (HR) and the bypass of mutagenic DNA lesions (double strand breaks, DSB) by the SOS response. Can catalyze the hydrolysis of ATP in the presence of single-stranded DNA, the ATP-dependent uptake of single-stranded DNA by duplex DNA, and the ATP-dependent hybridization of homologous single-stranded DNAs. Numerous X-ray crystals have been resolved under different conditions which indicate the flexibility of the protein, essential to its function. Gln-196 contributes to this plasticity by acting as a switch residue, which tr [...]
