Known metabolic pathways, protein complexes, signal transduction pathways, etc ... from curated databases.
Genes that are sometimes fused into single open reading frames.
STRING allows inspection of the interaction evidence for any given network. Choose any of the viewers above (disabled if not applicable in your 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.
colored nodes: query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes: second shell of interactors
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 each other.

Hypothetical protein (260 aa)
Predicted Functional Partners:
Hypothetical protein (80 aa)
Hypothetical protein (139 aa)
Hypothetical protein; Unknown. The ortholog in A.thaliana is involved in photosystem II (PSII) assembly, but knockout of the corresponding gene in Synechoccus PCC 7002 has no effect on PSII activity (323 aa)
Hypothetical protein (272 aa)
Hypothetical protein (249 aa)
Thf1-like protein; May be involved in photosynthetic membrane biogenesis (228 aa)
