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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
betAOxygen-dependent choline dehydrogenase; Involved in the biosynthesis of the osmoprotectant glycine betaine. Catalyzes the oxidation of choline to betaine aldehyde and betaine aldehyde to glycine betaine at the same rate; Belongs to the GMC oxidoreductase family (556 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
NAD/NADP-dependent betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase; Involved in the biosynthesis of the osmoprotectant glycine betaine. Catalyzes the reversible oxidation of betaine aldehyde to the corresponding acid. It is highly specific for betaine and has a significantly higher affinity for NAD than for NADP
HTH-type transcriptional regulator BetI; Repressor involved in the biosynthesis of the osmoprotectant glycine betaine. It represses transcription of the choline transporter BetT and the genes of BetAB involved in the synthesis of glycine betaine
High-affinity choline transport protein; High-affinity uptake of choline driven by a proton- motive force; Belongs to the BCCT transporter (TC 2.A.15) family
Phosphatidylserine decarboxylase proenzyme; Catalyzes the formation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PtdEtn) from phosphatidylserine (PtdSer). Only decarboxylates the lipid-linked form of the serine moiety, and not serine alone or derivatives like phosphoserine or glycerophosphoserine
Bifunctional protein Aas; Plays a role in lysophospholipid acylation. Transfers fatty acids to the 1-position via an enzyme-bound acyl-ACP intermediate in the presence of ATP and magnesium. Its physiological function is to regenerate phosphatidylethanolamine from 2-acyl-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine (2-acyl-GPE) formed by transacylation reactions or degradation by phospholipase A1
Phospholipase A1; Has broad substrate specificity including hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine with phospholipase A2 (EC and phospholipase A1 (EC activities. Strong expression leads to outer membrane breakdown and cell death; is dormant in normal growing cells. Required for efficient secretion of bacteriocins
Iron-sulfur cluster assembly scaffold protein IscU; A scaffold on which IscS assembles Fe-S clusters. Exists as 2 interconverting forms, a structured (S) and disordered (D) form. The D-state is the preferred substrate for IscS. Converts to the S-state when an Fe-S cluster is assembled, which helps it dissociate from IscS to transfer the Fe-S to an acceptor. It is likely that Fe-S cluster coordination is flexible as the role of this complex is to build and then hand off Fe-S clusters; Belongs to the NifU family
Glucans biosynthesis protein D; Probably involved in the control of the structural glucose backbone of osmoregulated periplasmic glucans (OPGs)
Aquaporin Z; Channel that permits osmotically driven movement of water in both directions. It is involved in the osmoregulation and in the maintenance of cell turgor during volume expansion in rapidly growing cells. It mediates rapid entry or exit of water in response to abrupt changes in osmolarity
Probable lipoprotein YiaD; Suppresses temperature-sensitive mutations in BamB when overexpressed
