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
pvdRMembrane fusion protein, macrolide-specific efflux system; Belongs to the membrane fusion protein (MFP) (TC 8.A.1) family (391 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
type_I_sec_TolC: type I secretion outer membrane , TolC family protein
Macrolide transport system atp-binding/permease protein; Part of the tripartite efflux system MacAB-TolC. MacB is a non-canonical ABC transporter that contains transmembrane domains (TMD), which form a pore in the inner membrane, and an ATP-binding domain (NBD), which is responsible for energy generation. Confers resistance against macrolides
Uncharacterized protein; outer_NodT: efflux transporter, outer membrane factor (OMF) lipo, NodT family protein
annotation not available
Acyl-homoserine lactone acylase pvdq; Catalyzes the deacylation of acyl-homoserine lactone (AHL or acyl-HSL), releasing homoserine lactone (HSL) and the corresponding fatty acid. Possesses a specificity for the degradation of long-chain acyl-HSLs (side chains of 11 to 14 carbons in length). Degrades 3-oxo- C12-HSL, one of the two main AHL signal molecules of P.aeruginosa, and thereby functions as a quorum quencher, inhibiting the las quorum- sensing system. Therefore, may enable P.aeruginosa to modulate its own quorum-sensing-dependent pathogenic potential. Also appears to be required [...]
annotation not available
Putative lipoprotein releasing system atp-binding protein; Part of the ABC transporter complex LolCDE involved in the translocation of mature outer membrane-directed lipoproteins, from the inner membrane to the periplasmic chaperone, LolA. Responsible for the formation of the LolA-lipoprotein complex in an ATP-dependent manner
2,4-diaminobutyrate 4-transaminase family protein; Belongs to the class-III pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family
annotation not available
Rna polymerase sigma factor, sigma-70 family protein; Belongs to the sigma-70 factor family. ECF subfamily
