STRING protein interaction 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.
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
leuOHTH-type transcriptional regulator LeuO; A global transcription factor. Activates transcription of the 9 following operons; yjjQ-bglJ, yjjP, acrEF, ybdO, yjcRQP, casABCDE12, rhsD-ybbC, fepE and gltF, in most cases it probably interferes with silencing by H-NS and activates transcription. Represses transcription of the 3 following operons; uxaCA, sdaCB and yjiY. H-NS repression of the bgl operon, leading to the ability to metabolize some beta-glucosides. It also directly activates the bgl operon. Activation is H-NS and BglJ-RcsB independent (314 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Transcriptional activator protein BglJ; A crytic transcriptional activator. When its expression is induced it relieves H-NS repression of the bgl operon. Acts independently of transcription factor LeuO
Putative transcription factor YjjQ; Putative regulator
Transcriptional activator protein LysR; This protein activates the transcription of the lysA gene encoding diaminopimelate decarboxylase. LysR is also a negative regulator of its own expression
HTH-type transcriptional repressor NemR; Represses the transcription of the nemRA operon by binding to the nemR box
DNA-binding protein StpA; A DNA-binding protein that acts in a fashion similar to H-NS protein upon overexpression, represses a number of genes including the cryptic blg operon, hns, papB and the proU locus. A subset of H-NS/StpA-regulated genes also require Hha for repression; Hha and Cnu (YdgT) increases the number of genes DNA bound by H-NS/StpA and may also modulate the oligomerization of the H-NS/StpA-complex. Repression can be inhibited by dominant-negative mutants of StpA or H-NS
cAMP-activated global transcriptional regulator CRP; A global transcription regulator. Complexes with cyclic AMP (cAMP) which allosterically activates DNA binding (to consensus sequence 5'-AAATGTGATCTAGATCACATTT-3') to directly regulate the transcription of about 300 genes in about 200 operons and indirectly regulate the expression of about half the genome. There are 3 classes of CRP promoters; class I promoters have a single CRP-binding site upstream of the RNA polymerase (RNAP)- binding site, whereas in class II promoters the single CRP- and RNAP-binding site overlap, CRP making mult [...]
Leucine-responsive regulatory protein; Mediates a global response to leucine. Exogenous leucine affects the expression of a number of different operons; lrp mediates this effect for at least some of these operons. For example it is regulator of the branched-chain amino acid transport genes
CRISPR system Cascade subunit CasA; CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat), is an adaptive immune system that provides protection against mobile genetic elements (viruses, transposable elements and conjugative plasmids). CRISPR clusters contain sequences complementary to antecedent mobile elements and target invading nucleic acids. CRISPR clusters are transcribed and processed into CRISPR RNA (crRNA); Belongs to the CRISPR associated protein CasA/Cse1 family. Type I-E/Ecoli subfamily
HTH-type transcriptional activator TtdR; Positive regulator required for L-tartrate-dependent anaerobic growth on glycerol. Induces expression of the ttdA-ttdB- ygjE operon
HTH-type transcriptional regulator RutR; Master transcription regulator which represses the degradation of pyrimidines (rutABCDEFG) and purines (gcl operon) for maintenance of metabolic balance between pyrimidines and purines. It also regulates the synthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides and arginine from glutamine (carAB) and the supply of glutamate (gadABWX)
