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:
a 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

ybbNDnaK co-chaperone, thioredoxin-like protein; Chaperedoxin that combines a chaperone activity with a redox- protective function. Involved in the protection against hypochlorous acid (HOCl), the active ingredient of bleach, which kills bacteria by causing protein aggregation. Functions as an efficient holdase chaperone that protects the substrates of the major folding systems GroEL/GroES and DnaK/DnaJ/GrpE from aggregation. In addition, it prevents the irreversible oxidation of its substrates through the formation of mixed disulfide complexes. After bleach stress, it transfers its substr [...] (284 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
grpE
Heat shock protein; Participates actively in the response to hyperosmotic and heat shock by preventing the aggregation of stress-denatured proteins, in association with DnaK and GrpE. It is the nucleotide exchange factor for DnaK and may function as a thermosensor. Unfolded proteins bind initially to DnaJ; upon interaction with the DnaJ-bound protein, DnaK hydrolyzes its bound ATP, resulting in the formation of a stable complex. GrpE releases ADP from DnaK; ATP binding to DnaK triggers the release of the substrate protein, thus completing the reaction cycle. Several rounds of ATP-depen [...]

gor
Glutathione oxidoreductase; Maintains high levels of reduced glutathione in the cytosol; Belongs to the class-I pyridine nucleotide-disulfide oxidoreductase family.
  
  
 0.886
hslU
Molecular chaperone and ATPase component of HslUV protease; ATPase subunit of a proteasome-like degradation complex; this subunit has chaperone activity. The binding of ATP and its subsequent hydrolysis by HslU are essential for unfolding of protein substrates subsequently hydrolyzed by HslV. HslU recognizes the N-terminal part of its protein substrates and unfolds these before they are guided to HslV for hydrolysis.

ybbO
Putative oxidoreductase; Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.
    0.884
hslV
Peptidase component of the HslUV protease; Protease subunit of a proteasome-like degradation complex believed to be a general protein degrading machinery. The complex has been shown to be involved in the specific degradation of heat shock induced transcription factors such as RpoH and SulA. In addition, small hydrophobic peptides are also hydrolyzed by HslV. HslV has weak protease activity even in the absence of HslU, but this activity is induced more than 100-fold in the presence of HslU. HslU recognizes protein substrates and unfolds these before guiding them to HslV for hydrolysis. [...]

htpG
Protein refolding molecular co-chaperone Hsp90, Hsp70-dependent; Molecular chaperone. Has ATPase activity.
  
 
 0.873
tesA
acyl-CoA thioesterase 1 and protease I and lysophospholipase L1; TesA is a multifunctional esterase that can act as a thioesterase, lysophospholipase and protease. TesA functions as a thioesterase specific for fatty acyl thioesters of greater than ten carbons, with highest activity on palmitoyl-CoA, cis-vaccenyl-CoA and palmitoleoyl-CoA. TesA also possesses an arylesterase activity towards short acyl-chain aromatic esters such as alpha-naphthyl acetate, alpha-naphthyl butyrate, benzyl acetate and phenyl acetate. Also able to hydrolyze short acyl-chain triacylglycerols such as triacetin [...]

dnaK
Chaperone Hsp70, with co-chaperone DnaJ; Plays an essential role in the initiation of phage lambda DNA replication, where it acts in an ATP-dependent fashion with the DnaJ protein to release lambda O and P proteins from the preprimosomal complex. DnaK is also involved in chromosomal DNA replication, possibly through an analogous interaction with the DnaA protein. Also participates actively in the response to hyperosmotic shock.
 
 
 0.858
dnaJ
Chaperone Hsp40, DnaK co-chaperone; Interacts with DnaK and GrpE to disassemble a protein complex at the origins of replication of phage lambda and several plasmids. Participates actively in the response to hyperosmotic and heat shock by preventing the aggregation of stress-denatured proteins and by disaggregating proteins, also in an autonomous, DnaK-independent fashion. Unfolded proteins bind initially to DnaJ; upon interaction with the DnaJ-bound protein, DnaK hydrolyzes its bound ATP, resulting in the formation of a stable complex. GrpE releases ADP from DnaK; ATP binding to DnaK t [...]

clpB
Protein disaggregation chaperone; Part of a stress-induced multi-chaperone system, it is involved in the recovery of the cell from heat-induced damage, in cooperation with DnaK, DnaJ and GrpE. Acts before DnaK, in the processing of protein aggregates. Protein binding stimulates the ATPase activity; ATP hydrolysis unfolds the denatured protein aggregates, which probably helps expose new hydrophobic binding sites on the surface of ClpB-bound aggregates, contributing to the solubilization and refolding of denatured protein aggregates by DnaK.
