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

sodSuperoxide dismutase [Fe] (sod); Destroys superoxide anion radicals which are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems. (211 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SSU ribosomal protein S17AB (rps17AB); One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, it binds specifically to the 5'-end of 16S ribosomal RNA.
Aconitate hydratase; Energy Metabolism, Tri-Carboxylic Acid Cycle.
LSU ribosomal protein L13AB (rpl13AB); This protein is one of the early assembly proteins of the 50S ribosomal subunit, although it is not seen to bind rRNA by itself. It is important during the early stages of 50S assembly.
LSU ribosomal protein L3AB (rpl3AB); 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; Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uL3 family.
LSU ribosomal protein L15AB (rpl15AB); Binds to the 23S rRNA; Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uL15 family.
Succinyl-CoA synthetase, alpha subunit (sucD); Succinyl-CoA synthetase functions in the citric acid cycle (TCA), coupling the hydrolysis of succinyl-CoA to the synthesis of either ATP or GTP and thus represents the only step of substrate-level phosphorylation in the TCA. The alpha subunit of the enzyme binds the substrates coenzyme A and phosphate, while succinate binding and nucleotide specificity is provided by the beta subunit.
Peroxiredoxin, bacterioferritin comigratory protein homolog (bcp-2); Thiol-specific peroxidase that catalyzes the reduction of hydrogen peroxide and organic hydroperoxides to water and alcohols, respectively. Plays a role in cell protection against oxidative stress by detoxifying peroxides.
LSU ribosomal protein L11AB (rpl11AB); Forms part of the ribosomal stalk which helps the ribosome interact with GTP-bound translation factors; Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uL11 family.
SSU ribosomal protein S11AB (rps11AB); Located on the platform of the 30S subunit. Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uS11 family.
SSU ribosomal protein S13E (rpS13E); Close hits to several plant species' 40S ribosomal protein; Translation, Ribosomal Proteins.
