Known metabolic pathways, protein complexes, signal transduction pathways, etc ... from curated databases.
Genes that are sometimes fused into single open reading frames.
Automated, unsupervised textmining - searching for proteins that are frequently mentioned together.
Proteins whose genes are observed to be correlated in expression, across a large number of experiments.
STRING allows inspection of the interaction evidence for any given network. Choose any of the viewers above (disabled if not applicable in your 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.
colored nodes: query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes: second shell of interactors
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.

Uncharacterized protein (319 aa)
Predicted Functional Partners:
ATP-dependent protease La ; ATP-dependent serine protease that mediates the selective degradation of mutant and abnormal proteins as well as certain short-lived regulatory proteins. Required for cellular homeostasis and for survival from DNA damage and developmental changes induced by stress. Degrades polypeptides processively to yield small peptide fragments that are 5 to 10 amino acids long. Binds to DNA in a double-stranded, site-specific manner (825 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (475 aa)
Acyl carrier protein ; Carrier of the growing fatty acid chain in fatty acid biosynthesis (82 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (161 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (816 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (176 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (293 aa)
ABC transporter-related permease with MCE domain (306 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (271 aa)
Uncharacterized protein (376 aa)
