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

Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein YeeZ; Putative enzyme of sugar metabolism; Protein involved in carbohydrate catabolic process
Putative aga operon transcriptional repressor; Probable repressor for the aga operon for N-acetyl galactosamine transport and metabolism
Probable deoxycholate-binding periplasmic protein YgiS; Probably part of a deoxycholate transport system. Its expression in the presence of deoxycholate in a ygiS deletion mutant increases intracellular deoxycholate levels and decreases cell growth; higher expression in the presence of deoxycholate inhibits cell growth completely. Bile acid detergents such as deoxycholate are important for host defense against bacterial growth in the gall bladder and duodenum; Belongs to the bacterial solute-binding protein 5 family
annotation not available
Uncharacterized HTH-type transcriptional regulator YdcR; Multi modular; putative transcriptional regulator; also putative ATP-binding component of a transport system; Protein involved in ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter activity and regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; In the C-terminal section; belongs to the class-I pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family
Protein HokD; When overexpressed kills the cells from the inside by interfering with a vital function in the cell membrane
Nucleoside triphosphate pyrophosphohydrolase; Involved in the regulation of bacterial cell survival under conditions of nutritional stress. Regulates the type II MazE-MazF toxin-antitoxin (TA) system which mediates programmed cell death (PCD). This is achieved by lowering the cellular concentration of (p)ppGpp produced by RelA under amino acid starvation, thus protecting the cell from the toxicity of MazF. Reduction of (p)ppGpp can be achieved by direct degradation of (p)ppGpp or by degradation of NTPs, which are substrates for (p)ppGpp synthesis by RelA; Belongs to the nucleoside trip [...]
Inorganic pyrophosphatase; Catalyzes the hydrolysis of inorganic pyrophosphate (PPi) forming two phosphate ions
2,4-dienoyl-CoA reductase; Functions as an auxiliary enzyme in the beta-oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids with double bonds at even carbon positions. Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of the C4-C5 double bond of the acyl chain of 2,4-dienoyl-CoA to yield 2-trans- enoyl-CoA. Acts on both isomers, 2-trans,4-cis- and 2-trans,4-trans-decadienoyl-CoA, with almost equal efficiency. Is not active with NADH instead of NADPH. Does not show cis->trans isomerase activity
mRNA interferase toxin YafQ; Toxic component of a type II toxin-antitoxin (TA) system. A sequence-specific mRNA endoribonuclease that inhibits translation elongation and induces bacterial stasis. Cleavage occurs between the second and third residue of the Lys codon followed by a G or A (5'AAA(G/A)3'), is reading-frame dependent and occurs within the 5' end of most mRNAs. Ribosome-binding confers the sequence specificity and reading frame-dependence. When overexpressed in liquid media YafQ partially inhibits protein synthesis, with a reduction in growth rate and colony growth rate. This [...]
