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.

Hypothetical protein (214 aa)
Predicted Functional Partners:
recA protein; Can catalyze the hydrolysis of ATP in the presence of single-stranded DNA, the ATP-dependent uptake of single-stranded DNA by duplex DNA, and the ATP-dependent hybridization of homologous single-stranded DNAs. It interacts with LexA causing its activation and leading to its autocatalytic cleavage (364 aa)
Hypothetical protein (78 aa)
PilT protein domain-containing protein (132 aa)
Transposase IS200-like protein (148 aa)
Hypothetical protein (77 aa)
Cell surface receptor IPT/TIG domain-containing protein (597 aa)
Hypothetical protein (147 aa)
PilT protein domain-containing protein (136 aa)
Hypothetical protein (242 aa)
Peptidase S41; Degrades oligopeptides (1097 aa)
