close STRING Data Update
The upcoming version of STRING is available for preview: it includes new data, new enrichment categories (e.g. diseases and tissues) and covers 14000 fully sequenced genomes.
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

flgKflgK_ends: flagellar hook-associated protein FlgK (682 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Uncharacterized protein; flagell_flgL: flagellar hook-associated protein 3; Belongs to the bacterial flagellin family
Peptidoglycan hydrolase flgJ; flagell_FlgJ: flagellar rod assembly protein/muramidase FlgJ
Flagellar P-ring protein; Assembles around the rod to form the L-ring and probably protects the motor/basal body from shearing forces during rotation
flgG_G_neg: flagellar basal-body rod protein FlgG; Belongs to the flagella basal body rod proteins family
A-type flagellar hook-associated protein 2; Required for the morphogenesis and for the elongation of the flagellar filament by facilitating polymerization of the flagellin monomers at the tip of growing filament. Forms a capping structure, which prevents flagellin subunits (transported through the central channel of the flagellum) from leaking out without polymerization at the distal end. Essential for motility. Responsible for adhesion to mucin, which is the initial event in colonization by this organism of the airways of cystic fibrosis patients
Flagellar L-ring protein; Assembles around the rod to form the L-ring and probably protects the motor/basal body from shearing forces during rotation
flgEFG_subfam: flagellar hook-basal body family protein
Basal-body rod modification protein FlgD; Required for flagellar hook formation. May act as a scaffolding protein
flgC: flagellar basal-body rod protein FlgC; Belongs to the flagella basal body rod proteins family
fliS: flagellar protein FliS
Your Current Organism:
