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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
nrdRNrdr transcriptional repressor; Represses transcription of the class Ib RNR genes nrdHIEF but has much smaller effect on transcription of the class Ia RNR genes nrdAB and class III RNR genes nrdDG. By binding to nrdR boxes in the promoter regions to alter promoter activity, nrdR differentially regulates nrdAB, nrdHIEF and nrdD transcription in aerobic growth (149 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Fused diaminohydroxyphosphoribosylaminopyrimidine deaminase/5-amino-6-(5-phosphoribosylamino)uracil reductase; Converts 2,5-diamino-6-(ribosylamino)-4(3h)-pyrimidinone 5'- phosphate into 5-amino-6-(ribosylamino)-2,4(1h,3h)-pyrimidinedione 5'- phosphate
Bira family transcriptional regulator, biotin operon repressor / biotin---[acetyl-coa-carboxylase] ligase; Acts both as a biotin--[acetyl-CoA-carboxylase] ligase and a biotin-operon repressor. In the presence of ATP, BirA activates biotin to form the BirA-biotinyl-5'-adenylate (BirA-bio-5'-AMP or holoBirA) complex. HoloBirA can either transfer the biotinyl moiety to the biotin carboxyl carrier protein (BCCP) subunit of acetyl-CoA carboxylase, or bind to the biotin operator site and inhibit transcription of the operon
6,7-dimethyl-8-ribityllumazine synthase; Catalyzes the formation of 6,7-dimethyl-8-ribityllumazine by condensation of 5-amino-6-(D-ribitylamino)uracil with 3,4-dihydroxy-2- butanone 4-phosphate. This is the penultimate step in the biosynthesis of riboflavin
L-arginine-responsive arginine metabolism regulon transcriptional regulator; Negatively controls the expression of the four operons of arginine biosynthesis in addition to the carAB operon. Predominantly interacts with A/T residues in ARG boxes. It also binds to a specific site in cer locus. Thus it is essential for cer-mediated site-specific recombination in ColE1. It is necessary for monomerization of the plasmid ColE1
Ribonucleoside-triphosphate reductase (formate); Catalyzes the conversion of ribonucleotides into deoxyribonucleotides, which are required for DNA synthesis and repair
Involved in transcription antitermination. Required for transcription of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes. Binds specifically to the boxA antiterminator sequence of the ribosomal RNA (rrn) operons The affinity of NusB for the boxA RNA sequence is significantly increased in the presence of the ribosomal protein S10 . NusB may serve as a loading factor that ensures efficient entry of S10 into the transcription complexes . It also modulates the rrn boxA-mediated transcription elongation rates
Bacterial alpha2-macroglobulin colonization factor ecam; Protects the bacterial cell from host peptidases . Acts by a 'trapping' mechanism. Cleavage of the bait-region domain by host peptidases leads to a global conformational change, which results in entrapment of the host peptidase and activation of the thioester bond that covalently binds the attacking host peptidase Trapped peptidases are still active except against very large substrates . May protect the entire periplam, including the lipoproteins anchored to the periplasmic side of the outer membrane, against intruding endopeptidases
Ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase 1, alpha subunit; Provides the precursors necessary for DNA synthesis. Catalyzes the biosynthesis of deoxyribonucleotides from the corresponding ribonucleotides. R1 contains the binding sites for both substrates and allosteric effectors and carries out the actual reduction of the ribonucleotide. It also provides redox-active cysteines
Thiamine-monophosphate kinase; Catalyzes the ATP-dependent phosphorylation of thiamine- monophosphate (TMP) to form thiamine-pyrophosphate (TPP), the active form of vitamin B1. Cannot use thiamine as substrate. Is highly specific for ATP as phosphate donor
Hydrogen donor for nrdef electron transport system; Electron transport system for the ribonucleotide reductase system NrdEF
