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:
some 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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
pqqCPyrroloquinoline quinone biosynthesis protein; Ring cyclization and eight-electron oxidation of 3a-(2-amino- 2-carboxyethyl)-4,5-dioxo-4,5,6,7,8,9-hexahydroquinoline-7,9- dicarboxylic-acid to PQQ (250 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Pyrroloquinoline quinone biosynthesis protein b; May be involved in the transport of PQQ or its precursor to the periplasm
Catalyzes the cross-linking of a glutamate residue and a tyrosine residue in the PqqA protein as part of the biosynthesis of pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ)
Functions as a PqqA binding protein and presents PqqA to PqqE, in the pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) biosynthetic pathway
Alcohol dehydrogenase (cytochrome c); Catalyzes the oxidation of primary alcohols to the corresponding aldehydes, except for methanol, which is a very poor substrate. ExaA is also able to use secondary alcohols as well as amino alcohols like ethanolamine and l-amino-2-propanol, and aldehydes as substrates
Cytochrome c family protein; Is an essential component of the ethanol oxidation system that allows P.aeruginosa to grow on ethanol as the sole carbon and energy source. Is the direct electron acceptor of the quinoprotein ethanol dehydrogenase (QEDH)
Required for coenzyme pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) biosynthesis. It is thought that this protein is a protease that cleaves peptides bond in a small peptide (gene pqqA), providing the glutamate and tyrosine residues which are necessary for the synthesis of PQQ (By similarity)
annotation not available
annotation not available
Required for coenzyme pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) biosynthesis. PQQ is probably formed by cross-linking a specific glutamate to a specific tyrosine residue and excising these residues from the peptide (By similarity)
PQQ_membr_DH: membrane-bound PQQ-dependent dehydrogenase, glucose/quinate/shikimate family protein
