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

sbcCAtp dependent, structure specific dna nuclease - sbcc subunit; SbcCD cleaves DNA hairpin structures. These structures can inhibit DNA replication and are intermediates in certain DNA recombination reactions. The complex acts as a 3'->5' double strand exonuclease that can open hairpins. It also has a 5' single-strand endonuclease activity (1048 aa)

polA
In addition to polymerase activity, this DNA polymerase exhibits 3'-5' and 5'-3' exonuclease activity. It is able to utilize nicked circular duplex DNA as a template and can unwind the parental DNA strand from its template
  
 0.992
recQ
Atp-dependent dna helicase recq; Involved in the RecF recombination pathway; its gene expression is under the regulation of the SOS system. It is a DNA helicase
  
 0.985
recA
Dna recombination/repair protein reca; Required for homologous recombination and the bypass of mutagenic DNA lesions by the SOS response. Catalyzes ATP-driven homologous pairing and strand exchange of DNA molecules necessary for DNA recombinational repair. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of ATP in the presence of single-stranded DNA, the ATP-dependent uptake of single- stranded DNA by duplex DNA, and the ATP-dependent hybridization of homologous single-stranded DNAs. The SOS response controls an apoptotic-like death (ALD) induced (in the absence of the mazE-mazF toxin-antitoxin module) in res [...]

recB
Exonuclease v (recbcd complex), beta subunit; A helicase/nuclease that prepares dsDNA breaks (DSB) for recombinational DNA repair. Binds to DSBs and unwinds DNA via a rapid (>1 kb/second) and highly processive (>30 kb) ATP-dependent bidirectional helicase. Unwinds dsDNA until it encounters a Chi (crossover hotspot instigator, 5'-GCTGGTGG-3') sequence from the 3' direction. Cuts ssDNA a few nucleotides 3' to Chi site, by nicking one strand or switching the strand degraded (depending on the reaction conditions). The properties and activities of the enzyme are changed at Chi. The Chi-alte [...]
 
  
 0.952
recJ
Single-stranded-DNA-specific exonuclease. Required for many types of recombinational events, although the stringency of the requirement for RecJ appears to vary with the type of recombinational event monitored and the other recombination gene products which are available
     
 0.944
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
   
  
 0.936
recN
Dna repair protein recn (recombination protein n); May be involved in recombinational repair of damaged DNA
     
 0.897
umuC
Involved in UV protection and mutation. Poorly processive, error-prone DNA polymerase involved in translesion repair . Essential for induced (or SOS) mutagenesis. Able to replicate DNA across DNA lesions (thymine photodimers and abasic sites, translesion synthesis) in the presence of activated RecA; efficiency is maximal in the presence of the beta sliding-clamp and clamp-loading complex of DNA polymerase III plus single-stranded binding protein (SSB) . RecA and to a lesser extent the beta clamp- complex may target Pol V to replication complexes stalled at DNA template lesions
  
 0.882
sbcB
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
