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

ybaPTrab family protein ybap; Uncharacterized protein YbaP; Putative ligase (264 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Functions in trans to edit the amino acid from incorrectly charged Cys-tRNA(Pro) via a Cys-tRNA(Pro) deacylase activity. May compensate for the lack of Cys-tRNA(Pro) editing by ProRS. Is also able to deacylate Cys-tRNA(Cys), and displays weak deacylase activity in vitro against Gly-tRNA(Gly), as well as, at higher concentrations, some other correctly charged tRNAs. Unlike some of its orthologs it is not able to remove the amino acid moiety from incorrectly charged Ala- tRNA(Pro)
N,n'-diacetylchitobiose-specific enzyme iib component of pts; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. The enzyme II ChbABC PTS system is involved in the transport of the chitin disaccharide N,N'-diacetylchitobiose (GlcNAc2) . Also able to use N,N',N''-triacetyl chitotriose (GlcNAc3)
Chitobiose outer membrane channel; Involved in the uptake of chitosugars
Probable inner membrane protein Smp; Membrane; Not classified; Belongs to the Smp family

Two-component system, citb family, cit operon sensor histidine kinase cita; Member of the two-component regulatory system DpiA/DpiB, which is essential for expression of citrate-specific fermentation genes and genes involved in plasmid inheritance. Could be involved in response to both the presence of citrate and external redox conditions. Functions as a sensor kinase that phosphorylates DpiA in the presence of citrate
Helicase IV catalyzes the unwinding of duplex DNA in the 3' to 5' direction with respect to the bound single strand in a reaction that is dependent upon the hydrolysis of ATP
Putative inner membrane-anchored periplasmic asma family protein; Belongs to the AsmA family
Inhibitor of replication at ter, dna-binding protein; Trans-acting protein required for termination of DNA replication. Binds to DNA replication terminator sequences (terA to terF) to prevent the passage of replication forks. The termination efficiency will be affected by the affinity of this protein for the terminator sequence
