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

sfmZTwo-component system, narl family, response regulator, fimbrial z protein, fimz; Fimbrial Z protein; probable signal transducer; Protein involved in transcription activator activity and transcription (210 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
sfmF
Fima homolog, function unknown; Part of the sfmACDHF fimbrial operon. Could contribute to adhesion to various surfaces in specific environmental niches. Increases adhesion to eukaryotic T24 bladder epithelial cells in the absence of fim genes
  
 
 0.828
sfmA
Fima homolog, function unknown; Part of the sfmACDHF fimbrial operon. Could contribute to adhesion to various surfaces in specific environmental niches. Increases adhesion to eukaryotic T24 bladder epithelial cells in the absence of fim genes
  
 
 0.787
sfmH
Putative fimbrial adhesin protein sfmh; Part of the sfmACDHF fimbrial operon. Could contribute to adhesion to various surfaces in specific environmental niches. Increases adhesion to eukaryotic T24 bladder epithelial cells in the absence of fim genes
  
 
 0.770
fimA
Major type 1 subunit fimbrin (pilin); Fimbriae (also called pili), polar filaments radiating from the surface of the bacterium to a length of 0.5-1.5 micrometers and numbering 100-300 per cell, enable bacteria to colonize the epithelium of specific host organs
   
 
 0.756
fimI
Fimbrin-like protein FimI; Fimbrial protein; Protein involved in glycoprotein biosynthetic process
    
 
 0.747
sfmC
Putative periplasmic pilus chaperone; Part of the sfmACDHF fimbrial operon. Could contribute to adhesion to various surfaces in specific environmental niches. Increases adhesion to eukaryotic T24 bladder epithelial cells in the absence of fim genes
  
 
 0.730
yedW
Two-component system, ompr family, response regulator; Member of a two-component regulatory system HprR/HprS involved in response to hydrogen peroxide Regulates the expression of at least 5 operons, cyoABCDE, hprRS, hiuH, cusRS and cusCFBA. Bifunctional regulator that acts as an activator and a repressor
  
 
 
 0.710
fimC
Type 1 fimbriae periplasmic chaperone; Required for the biogenesis of type 1 fimbriae. Binds and interact with FimH
   
 
 0.662
fliZ
Dna-binding transcriptional regulator fliz; During the post-exponential growth phase transiently interferes with RpoS (sigma S) activity without affecting expression of RpoS itself. It is probably not an anti-sigma factor as its overexpression is detrimental in rapidly growing cells where there is almost no sigma S factor. There is a strong overlap between Crl- activated genes and FliZ-down-regulated genes. FliZ acts as a timing device for expression of the genes for the adhesive curli fimbriae by indirectly decreasing expression of the curli regulator CsgD
    
 
 0.660
lrhA
Transcriptional repressor of flagellar, motility and chemotaxis genes; Not known, does not seem to act on the proton translocating NADH dehydrogenase genes (nuoA-N) which are part of the lrhA operon
      
 0.640
