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:
some 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

 0.901
gspE
Involved in a type II secretion system (T2SS, formerly general secretion pathway, GSP) for the export of proteins.
 
 0.892
gspO
Cleaves type-4 fimbrial leader sequence and methylates the N- terminal (generally Phe) residue
 
  
 0.880
gspM
Involved in a type II secretion system (T2SS, formerly general secretion pathway, GSP) for the export of proteins.
      
 0.826
gspH
Involved in a type II secretion system (T2SS, formerly general secretion pathway, GSP) for the export of proteins.
     
 0.801
alpA
Positive regulator of the expression of the slpA gene . When overexpressed, leads to suppression of the capsule overproduction and UV sensitivity phenotypes of cells mutant for the Lon ATP-dependent protease . Part of the cryptic P4-like prophage CP4-57 . Overexpression of AlpA leads to excision of the CP4-57 prophage by IntA. This inactivates ssrA (the gene upstream of the prophage) that encodes tmRNA which is required to rescue stalled ribosomes in a process known as trans- translation
