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

ecpEMat/ecp fimbriae periplasmic chaperone; Part of the ecpRABCDE operon, which encodes the E.coli common pilus (ECP). ECP is found in both commensal and pathogenic strains and plays a dual role in early-stage biofilm development and host cell recognition (By similarity) (236 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ecpC
Mat/ecp fimbriae outer membrane usher protein; Part of the ecpRABCDE operon, which encodes the E.coli common pilus (ECP). ECP is found in both commensal and pathogenic strains and plays a dual role in early-stage biofilm development and host cell recognition (By similarity)
 
  
 0.998
ecpD
Part of the ecpRABCDE operon, which encodes the E.coli common pilus (ECP). ECP is found in both commensal and pathogenic strains and plays a dual role in early-stage biofilm development and host cell recognition. Tip pilus adhesin, which is required for assembly of EcpA into fibers (By similarity)
 
  
 0.996
ecpA
Mat/ecp fimbriae major subunit; Part of the ecpRABCDE operon, which encodes the E.coli common pilus (ECP). ECP is found in both commensal and pathogenic strains and plays a dual role in early-stage biofilm development and host cell recognition. Major subunit of the fimbria (By similarity)
 
   
 0.988
ecpR
Luxr family transcriptional regulator, mat/ecp fimbriae transcriptional regulator; Part of the ecpRABCDE operon, which encodes the E.coli common pilus (ECP). ECP is found in both commensal and pathogenic strains and plays a dual role in early-stage biofilm development and host cell recognition. Positively regulates the expression of the ecp operon (By similarity). Also represses expression of the flagellar master operon flhDC, and consequently prevents flagellum biosynthesis and motility. Acts by binding to the regulatory region of the flhDC operon (Probable)

ydeS
Putative fimbrial-like adhesin protein; Putative fimbrial-like protein
  
   
 0.916
ecpB
Mat/ecp fimbriae periplasmic chaperone; Part of the ecpRABCDE operon, which encodes the E.coli common pilus (ECP). ECP is found in both commensal and pathogenic strains and plays a dual role in early-stage biofilm development and host cell recognition (By similarity)
 
  
0.890
ydeQ
Uncharacterized fimbrial-like protein YdeQ; Putative adhesin; similar to FimH protein
  
   
 0.868
yehC
Putative periplasmic pilin chaperone; Part of the yehABCD fimbrial operon. Could contribute to adhesion to various surfaces in specific environmental niches
      
 0.734
yehB
Putative fimbrial usher protein yehb; Part of the yehABCD fimbrial operon. Could contribute to adhesion to various surfaces in specific environmental niches. Probably involved in the export and assembly of fimbrial subunits across the outer membrane
      
 0.731
fimH
Involved in regulation of length and mediation of adhesion of type 1 fimbriae (but not necessary for the production of fimbriae). Adhesin responsible for the binding to D-mannose. It is laterally positioned at intervals in the structure of the type 1 fimbriae. In order to integrate FimH in the fimbriae FimF and FimG are needed
