STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

hscBFe-s protein assembly co-chaperone hscb; Co-chaperone involved in the maturation of iron-sulfur cluster-containing proteins. Seems to help targeting proteins to be folded toward HscA (173 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
nifU
Nitrogen fixation protein nifu and related proteins; A scaffold on which IscS assembles Fe-S clusters. It is likely that Fe-S cluster coordination is flexible as the role of this complex is to build and then hand off Fe-S clusters
 
 
 0.999
hscA
Fe-s protein assembly chaperone hsca; Chaperone involved in the maturation of iron-sulfur cluster- containing proteins. Has a low intrinsic ATPase activity which is markedly stimulated by HscB (By similarity)
 
 0.999
fdx
Ferredoxin, 2fe-2s type, isc system; Ferredoxin are iron-sulfur proteins that transfer electrons in a wide variety of metabolic reactions
 
 
 0.998
iscX
Fes assembly protein iscx; To E.coli YfhJ
 
  
 0.996
dnaK
Molecular chaperone dnak; Acts as a chaperone
  
 0.995
iscS
Cysteine desulfurase iscs; Master enzyme that delivers sulfur to a number of partners involved in Fe-S cluster assembly, tRNA modification or cofactor biosynthesis. Catalyzes the removal of elemental sulfur atoms from cysteine to produce alanine. Functions as a sulfur delivery protein for Fe-S cluster synthesis onto IscU, an Fe-S scaffold assembly protein, as well as other S acceptor proteins
 
 
 0.992
iscR
Rrf2 family transcriptional regulator, iron-sulfur cluster assembly transcription factor; Regulates the transcription of several operons and genes involved in the biogenesis of Fe-S clusters and Fe-S-containing proteins
  
  
 0.991
iscA
Is able to transfer iron-sulfur clusters to apo-ferredoxin. Multiple cycles of [2Fe2S] cluster formation and transfer are observed, suggesting that IscA acts catalytically. Recruits intracellular free iron so as to provide iron for the assembly of transient iron-sulfur cluster in IscU in the presence of IscS, L-cysteine and the thioredoxin reductase system
 
 0.973
cyaY
Iron donor protein cyay; Involved in iron-sulfur (Fe-S) cluster assembly. May act as a regulator of Fe-S biogenesis
  
 
 0.961
IscS
