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

pqsH2-heptyl-3-hydroxy-4(1H)-quinolone synthase; Involved in the terminal step of the biosynthesis of quinolone which in addition to serve as a potent signal for quorum sensing, chelates iron and promotes the formation of membrane vesicles (MVs). Catalyzes the hydroxylation of 2-heptyl-4-quinolone (C7-HHQ) to yield 2-heptyl-3-hydroxy-4-quinolone (PQS) (382 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
pqsC
3-Oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-(ACP)] synthase III family protein; Required for the biosynthesis of the quorum-sensing signaling molecules 2-heptyl-4(1H)-quinolone (HHQ) and 2-heptyl-3-hydroxy-4(1H)- quinolone (Pseudomonas quinolone signal or PQS), which are important for biofilm formation and virulence. The PqsC/PqsB complex catalyzes the condensation of 2-aminobenzoylacetate (2-ABA) and octanoyl-CoA to form HHQ. First, PqsC acquires an octanoyl group from octanoyl-CoA and forms an octanoyl-PqsC intermediate. Then, together with PqsB, it catalyzes the coupling of 2-ABA with the octanoate gro [...]

pqsB
2-heptyl-4(1H)-quinolone synthase subunit PqsB; Required for the biosynthesis of the quorum-sensing signaling molecules 2-heptyl-4(1H)-quinolone (HHQ) and 2-heptyl-3-hydroxy-4(1H)- quinolone (Pseudomonas quinolone signal or PQS), which are important for biofilm formation and virulence. The PqsC/PqsB complex catalyzes the condensation of 2-aminobenzoylacetate (2-ABA) and octanoyl-CoA to form HHQ. PqsB, together with PqsC, catalyzes the coupling of 2-ABA with the octanoate group, leading to decarboxylation and dehydration, and resulting in closure of the quinoline ring. PqsB is probably [...]

pqsD
Pqb biosynthetic 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] synthase iii; Required for the biosynthesis of a number of signaling molecules, such as the quinolone signal 2-heptyl-3-hydroxy-4(1H)- quinolone (PQS), 2-heptyl-4-hydroxyquinoline (HHQ) and 2,4- dihydroxyquinoline (DHQ). These molecules are required for normal biofilm formation. Catalyzes the transfer of the anthraniloyl moiety from anthraniloyl-CoA to malonyl-CoA to form 2-aminobenzoylacetyl-CoA . The first step of the reaction is the formation of a covalent anthraniloyl-PqsD intermediate Next, the short-lived intermediate 3-(2-aminoph [...]

lasR
Luxr family transcriptional regulator, quorum-sensing system regulator lasr; Transcriptional activator of elastase structural gene (LasB). Binds to the PAI autoinducer
      
 0.866
pqsA
Amp-binding enzyme family protein; Catalyzes the formation of anthraniloyl-CoA, which is the priming step for entry into the Pseudomonas quinolone signal (PQS) biosynthetic pathway. Also active on a variety of aromatic substrates, including benzoate and chloro and fluoro derivatives of anthranilate
  
  
 0.860
rhlI
Autoinducer synthetase family protein; Required for the synthesis of BHL (N-butanoyl-L-homoserine lactone), and HHL (N-hexanoyl-L-homoserine lactone) autoinducer molecules which bind to RhlR and thus acts in elastase biosynthesis regulation
   
  
 0.858
pqsE
Metallo-beta-lactamase superfamily protein; Required for the biosynthesis of the quorum-sensing signaling molecules 2-heptyl-4(1H)-quinolone (HHQ) and 2-heptyl-3-hydroxy-4(1H)- quinolone (Pseudomonas quinolone signal or PQS), which are important for biofilm formation and virulence. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of the intermediate 2-aminobenzoylacetyl-CoA (2-ABA-CoA) to form 2- aminobenzoylacetate (2-ABA), the precursor of HHQ. In vitro, can also hydrolyze other substrates such as S-ethyl-acetothioacetate and acetoacetyl-CoA, but is inactive against anthraniloyl-CoA, malonyl-CoA and octanoy [...]

sdiA
Luxr family transcriptional regulator, quorum-sensing system regulator rhlr; Necessary for transcriptional activation of the rhlAB genes encoding the rhamnosyltransferase. It also functions as a transcriptional activator of elastase structural gene (lasB). Binds to autoinducer molecules BHL (N-butanoyl-L-homoserine lactone), and HHL (N-hexanoyl-L-homoserine lactone)
