STRINGSTRING
ftsZ protein (Idiomarina loihiensis) - STRING interaction network
"ftsZ" - Cell division GTPase, FtsZ in Idiomarina loihiensis
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

ftsZCell division GTPase, FtsZ; Essential cell division protein that forms a contractile ring structure (Z ring) at the future cell division site. The regulation of the ring assembly controls the timing and the location of cell division. One of the functions of the FtsZ ring is to recruit other cell division proteins to the septum to produce a new cell wall between the dividing cells. Binds GTP and shows GTPase activity (399 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ftsA
Cell division ATPase, FtsA; Cell division protein that is involved in the assembly of the Z ring. May serve as a membrane anchor for the Z ring (402 aa)
 
 
  0.999
mreB
Actin-like ATPase (347 aa)
     
 
  0.980
murC
UDP-N-acetylmuramate-alanine ligase; Cell wall formation (490 aa)
   
 
  0.979
ftsW
Cell division membrane protein; Essential cell division protein. Transports lipid-linked peptidoglycan precursors from the inner to the outer leaflet of the cytoplasmic membrane (409 aa)
 
 
  0.972
ftsI
Cell division protein FtsI (577 aa)
 
 
  0.969
zipA
Secreted cell division protein; Essential cell division protein that stabilizes the FtsZ protofilaments by cross-linking them and that serves as a cytoplasmic membrane anchor for the Z ring. Also required for the recruitment to the septal ring of downstream cell division proteins (325 aa)
     
 
  0.967
ftsQ
Cell division septal protein; Essential cell division protein. May link together the upstream cell division proteins, which are predominantly cytoplasmic, with the downstream cell division proteins, which are predominantly periplasmic. May control correct divisome assembly (248 aa)
   
 
  0.965
murG
UDP-N-acetylglucosamine-LPS N-acetylglucosamine transferase; Cell wall formation. Catalyzes the transfer of a GlcNAc subunit on undecaprenyl-pyrophosphoryl-MurNAc-pentapeptide (lipid intermediate I) to form undecaprenyl-pyrophosphoryl-MurNAc- (pentapeptide)GlcNAc (lipid intermediate II) (362 aa)
   
 
  0.965
murD
UDP-N-acetylmuramoylalanine-D-glutamate ligase; Cell wall formation. Catalyzes the addition of glutamate to the nucleotide precursor UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine (UMA) (463 aa)
   
 
  0.963
ftsK
DNA translocase FtsK (801 aa)
       
 
  0.962
