STRINGSTRING
merT protein (Pseudomonas aeruginosa) - STRING interaction network
"merT" - Mercuric transport protein MerT in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
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

merTMercuric transport protein MerT; Involved in mercury resistance. Probably transfers a mercuric ion from the periplasmic Hg(2+)-binding protein MerP to the cytoplasmic mercuric reductase MerA (Probable); Belongs to the MerT family (116 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
merP
Mercuric transport protein periplasmic component; Involved in mercury resistance. Acts as a mercury scavenger that specifically binds to a mercuric ion in the periplasm and probably passes it to the cytoplasmic mercuric reductase MerA via the mercuric transport protein MerT (Probable); Belongs to the MerP family (91 aa)
 
     
  0.996
merA
merA- mercuric reductase (548 aa)
 
     
  0.995
merD
merD- mercuric resistence transcriptional repressor protein MerD (121 aa)
 
     
  0.993
DR97_1801
Mercuric resistance operon regulatory protein; Mediates the mercuric-dependent induction of mercury resistance operon. In the absence of mercury MerR represses transcription by binding tightly to the mer operator region; when mercury is present the dimeric complex binds a single ion and becomes a potent transcriptional activator, while remaining bound to the mer site (144 aa)

tnpA
Transposase for transposon Tn501; Required for transposition of transposon Tn501 (988 aa)
