STRINGSTRING
ftsZ protein (Nitrosomonas eutropha) - STRING interaction network
"ftsZ" - Cell division protein FtsZ in Nitrosomonas eutropha
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

ftsZCell division protein FtsZ; Essential cell division protein that forms a contractile ring structure (Z ring) at the future cell division site. The regulation of the ring assembly controls the timing and the location of cell division. One of the functions of the FtsZ ring is to recruit other cell division proteins to the septum to produce a new cell wall between the dividing cells. Binds GTP and shows GTPase activity (382 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ftsA
Cell division protein FtsA; Cell division protein that is involved in the assembly of the Z ring. May serve as a membrane anchor for the Z ring (412 aa)
 
 
  0.998
minC
Septum site-determining protein MinC; Cell division inhibitor that blocks the formation of polar Z ring septums. Rapidly oscillates between the poles of the cell to destabilize FtsZ filaments that have formed before they mature into polar Z rings. Prevents FtsZ polymerization (241 aa)
       
 
  0.972
Neut_1136
Septum site-determining protein MinD (269 aa)
     
 
  0.942
clpX
ATP-dependent protease ATP-binding subunit ClpX; ATP-dependent specificity component of the Clp protease. It directs the protease to specific substrates. Can perform chaperone functions in the absence of ClpP (427 aa)
     
 
  0.936
Neut_1528
Cell division ATP-binding protein FtsE (220 aa)
       
 
  0.935
Neut_1592
Rod shape-determining protein MreB (353 aa)
       
 
  0.934
murC
UDP-N-acetylmuramate--L-alanine ligase; Cell wall formation (473 aa)
   
 
  0.928
Neut_2488
Cell division protein FtsK (768 aa)
       
 
  0.927
groL
Chaperonin GroEL; Prevents misfolding and promotes the refolding and proper assembly of unfolded polypeptides generated under stress conditions (547 aa)
     
   
  0.917
ftsQ
Polypeptide-transport-associated domain-containing protein; Essential cell division protein. May link together the upstream cell division proteins, which are predominantly cytoplasmic, with the downstream cell division proteins, which are predominantly periplasmic. May control correct divisome assembly (242 aa)
