STRINGSTRING
hfq protein (Maritimibacter alkaliphilus) - STRING interaction network
"hfq" - RNA-binding protein Hfq in Maritimibacter alkaliphilus
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

Score
hfqRNA-binding protein Hfq ; RNA chaperone that binds small regulatory RNA (sRNAs) and mRNAs to facilitate mRNA translational regulation in response to envelope stress, environmental stress and changes in metabolite concentrations. Also binds with high specificity to tRNAs (78 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
hflX
GTP-binding protein HflX ; GTPase that associates with the 50S ribosomal subunit and may have a role during protein synthesis or ribosome biogenesis (427 aa)
 
   
  0.939
rpsO
30S ribosomal protein S15 ; Forms an intersubunit bridge (bridge B4) with the 23S rRNA of the 50S subunit in the ribosome (89 aa)
     
   
  0.896
rpsE
30S ribosomal protein S5 ; Located at the back of the 30S subunit body where it stabilizes the conformation of the head with respect to the body (193 aa)
       
 
  0.895
rpsR
30S ribosomal protein S18 ; Binds as a heterodimer with protein S6 to the central domain of the 16S rRNA, where it helps stabilize the platform of the 30S subunit (75 aa)
 
 
 
  0.894
rpsL
30S ribosomal protein S12 ; Interacts with and stabilizes bases of the 16S rRNA that are involved in tRNA selection in the A site and with the mRNA backbone. Located at the interface of the 30S and 50S subunits, it traverses the body of the 30S subunit contacting proteins on the other side and probably holding the rRNA structure together. The combined cluster of proteins S8, S12 and S17 appears to hold together the shoulder and platform of the 30S subunit (123 aa)
     
   
  0.894
dnaK
Heat shock protein 70 ; Acts as a chaperone (636 aa)
   
   
  0.892
rpoH
RNA polymerase sigma-32 factor (298 aa)
     
   
  0.892
rpsT
30S ribosomal protein S20 ; Binds directly to 16S ribosomal RNA (87 aa)
         
  0.886
rplK
50S ribosomal protein L11 ; Forms part of the ribosomal stalk which helps the ribosome interact with GTP-bound translation factors (141 aa)
         
  0.878
rho
ATP-dependent helicase Rho ; Facilitates transcription termination by a mechanism that involves Rho binding to the nascent RNA, activation of Rho’s RNA-dependent ATPase activity, and release of the mRNA from the DNA template (418 aa)
     
 
  0.877
