Memar_1449 protein (Methanoculleus marisnigri) - STRING interaction network
"Memar_1449" - Cell division protein FtsZ in Methanoculleus marisnigri
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

Gene Fusion
Memar_1449Cell 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 (374 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
DNA topoisomerase; Releases the supercoiling and torsional tension of DNA, which is introduced during the DNA replication and transcription, by transiently cleaving and rejoining one strand of the DNA duplex. Introduces a single-strand break via transesterification at a target site in duplex DNA. The scissile phosphodiester is attacked by the catalytic tyrosine of the enzyme, resulting in the formation of a DNA-(5’-phosphotyrosyl)-enzyme intermediate and the expulsion of a 3’-OH DNA strand. The free DNA strand then undergoes passage around the unbroken strand, thus removing DNA superco [...] (931 aa)
CopG/Arc/MetJ family transcriptional regulator (58 aa)
Diphthine synthase; S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent methyltransferase that catalyzes the trimethylation of the amino group of the modified target histidine residue in translation elongation factor 2 (EF- 2), to form an intermediate called diphthine. The three successive methylation reactions represent the second step of diphthamide biosynthesis (250 aa)
glutamyl-tRNA(Gln) amidotransferase subunit E; Allows the formation of correctly charged Gln-tRNA(Gln) through the transamidation of misacylated Glu-tRNA(Gln) in organisms which lack glutaminyl-tRNA synthetase. The reaction takes place in the presence of glutamine and ATP through an activated gamma-phospho-Glu-tRNA(Gln). The GatDE system is specific for glutamate and does not act on aspartate (618 aa)
Molecular chaperone DnaK; Acts as a chaperone (609 aa)
Elongation factor EF-2; Catalyzes the GTP-dependent ribosomal translocation step during translation elongation. During this step, the ribosome changes from the pre-translocational (PRE) to the post- translocational (POST) state as the newly formed A-site-bound peptidyl-tRNA and P-site-bound deacylated tRNA move to the P and E sites, respectively. Catalyzes the coordinated movement of the two tRNA molecules, the mRNA and conformational changes in the ribosome (730 aa)
Response regulator receiver sensor signal transduction histidine kinase (440 aa)
Transcription factor TFIIE, alpha subunit; Transcription factor that plays a role in the activation of archaeal genes transcribed by RNA polymerase. Facilitates transcription initiation by enhancing TATA-box recognition by TATA-box-binding protein (Tbp), and transcription factor B (Tfb) and RNA polymerase recruitment. Not absolutely required for transcription in vitro, but particularly important in cases where Tbp or Tfb function is not optimal. It dynamically alters the nucleic acid-binding properties of RNA polymerases by stabilizing the initiation complex and destabilizing elongatio [...] (173 aa)
CBS domain-containing protein (262 aa)
DNA gyrase, B subunit; A type II topoisomerase that negatively supercoils closed circular double-stranded (ds) DNA in an ATP-dependent manner to modulate DNA topology and maintain chromosomes in an underwound state. Negative supercoiling favors strand separation, and DNA replication, transcription, recombination and repair, all of which involve strand separation. Also able to catalyze the interconversion of other topological isomers of dsDNA rings, including catenanes and knotted rings. Type II topoisomerases break and join 2 DNA strands simultaneously in an ATP-dependent manner (656 aa)
