STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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:
a 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 to 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. (459 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ftsA
Transposase; Cell division protein that is involved in the assembly of the Z ring. May serve as a membrane anchor for the Z ring. Belongs to the FtsA/MreB family.

gatB
aspartyl/glutamyl-tRNA amidotransferase subunit B; Allows the formation of correctly charged Asn-tRNA(Asn) or Gln-tRNA(Gln) through the transamidation of misacylated Asp-tRNA(Asn) or Glu-tRNA(Gln) in organisms which lack either or both of asparaginyl- tRNA or glutaminyl-tRNA synthetases. The reaction takes place in the presence of glutamine and ATP through an activated phospho-Asp- tRNA(Asn) or phospho-Glu-tRNA(Gln); Belongs to the GatB/GatE family. GatB subfamily.
  
  
 0.958
secA
Preprotein translocase subunit SecA; Part of the Sec protein translocase complex. Interacts with the SecYEG preprotein conducting channel. Has a central role in coupling the hydrolysis of ATP to the transfer of proteins into and across the cell membrane, serving both as a receptor for the preprotein-SecB complex and as an ATP-driven molecular motor driving the stepwise translocation of polypeptide chains across the membrane. Belongs to the SecA family.

ftsW
Cell division protein FtsW; Derived by automated computational analysis using gene prediction method: Protein Homology; Belongs to the SEDS family.
 
 
 0.938
groEL
Molecular chaperone GroEL; Prevents misfolding and promotes the refolding and proper assembly of unfolded polypeptides generated under stress conditions.
   
  
 0.921
gltA
Citrate (Si)-synthase; Type II enzyme; in Escherichia coli this enzyme forms a trimer of dimers which is allosterically inhibited by NADH and competitively inhibited by alpha-ketoglutarate; allosteric inhibition is lost when Cys206 is chemically modified which also affects hexamer formation; forms oxaloacetate and acetyl-CoA and water from citrate and coenzyme A; functions in TCA cycle, glyoxylate cycle and respiration; enzyme from Helicobacter pylori is not inhibited by NADH; Derived by automated computational analysis using gene prediction method: Protein Homology; Belongs to the cit [...]

murG
N-acetylglucosaminyl transferase; Cell wall formation. Catalyzes the transfer of a GlcNAc subunit on undecaprenyl-pyrophosphoryl-MurNAc-pentapeptide (lipid intermediate I) to form undecaprenyl-pyrophosphoryl-MurNAc- (pentapeptide)GlcNAc (lipid intermediate II); Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 28 family. MurG subfamily.
 
 
 0.885
ftsQ
Cell division protein FtsQ; Essential cell division protein; Belongs to the FtsQ/DivIB family. FtsQ subfamily.
  
  
 0.872
mrdB
Rod shape-determining protein RodA; Peptidoglycan polymerase that is essential for cell wall elongation; Belongs to the SEDS family. MrdB/RodA subfamily.
  
 
 0.815
lpxC
UDP-3-O-[3-hydroxymyristoyl] N-acetylglucosamine deacetylase; Catalyzes the hydrolysis of UDP-3-O-myristoyl-N- acetylglucosamine to form UDP-3-O-myristoylglucosamine and acetate, the committed step in lipid A biosynthesis; Belongs to the LpxC family.
