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
rdgCRecombination-associated protein RdgC; May be involved in recombination (303 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Regulatory protein RecX; Modulates RecA activity through direct physical interaction. Can inhibit both RecA recombinase and coprotease activities. May have a regulatory role during the SOS response. Inhibits DNA strand exchange in vitro; Belongs to the RecX family
DNA damage-inducible protein I; Involved in SOS regulation. Inhibits RecA by preventing RecA to bind ssDNA. Can displace ssDNA from RecA
DNA repair protein RecO; Involved in DNA repair and RecF pathway recombination; Belongs to the RecO family
Fe/S biogenesis protein NfuA; Involved in iron-sulfur cluster biogenesis under severe conditions such as iron starvation or oxidative stress. Binds a 4Fe-4S cluster, can transfer this cluster to apoproteins, and thereby intervenes in the maturation of Fe/S proteins. Could also act as a scaffold/chaperone for damaged Fe/S proteins. Required for E.coli to sustain oxidative stress and iron starvation. Also necessary for the use of extracellular DNA as the sole source of carbon and energy; Belongs to the NfuA family
DNA replication and repair protein RecF; The RecF protein is involved in DNA metabolism; it is required for DNA replication and normal SOS inducibility. RecF binds preferentially to single-stranded, linear DNA. It also seems to bind ATP
Fructokinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of fructose to fructose-6- P. Has also low level glucokinase activity in vitro. Is not able to phosphorylate D-ribose, D-mannitol, D-sorbitol, inositol, and L-threonine
Ribosomal RNA large subunit methyltransferase M; Catalyzes the 2'-O-methylation at nucleotide C2498 in 23S rRNA. Modifies C2498 in naked 23S rRNA, but not in assembled 50S subunits or ribosomes
Exodeoxyribonuclease I; Degrades single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) in a highly processive manner. Also functions as a DNA deoxyribophosphodiesterase that releases deoxyribose-phosphate moieties following the cleavage of DNA at an apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) site by either an AP endonuclease or AP lyase
UPF0307 protein YjgA; Putative alpha helix protein; Protein involved in ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter activity
Glutamate--tRNA ligase; Catalyzes the attachment of glutamate to tRNA(Glu) in a two-step reaction: glutamate is first activated by ATP to form Glu-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of tRNA(Glu)
