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

ybeYProbable rrna maturation factor; Single strand-specific metallo-endoribonuclease involved in late-stage 70S ribosome quality control and in maturation of the 3' terminus of the 16S rRNA. Acts together with the RNase R to eliminate defective 70S ribosomes, but not properly matured 70S ribosomes or individual subunits, by a process mediated specifically by the 30S ribosomal subunit. Involved in the processing of 16S, 23S and 5S rRNAs, with a particularly strong effect on maturation at both the 5'- and 3'- ends of 16S rRNA as well as maturation of the 5'-end of 23S and 5S rRNAs (155 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Phosphate starvation-inducible protein phoh and related proteins; Belongs to the PhoH family
An essential GTPase that binds both GDP and GTP, with nucleotide exchange occurring on the order of seconds whereas hydrolysis occurs on the order of minutes. Plays a role in numerous processes, including cell cycle regulation, energy metabolism, as a chaperone for 16S rRNA processing and 30S ribosomal subunit biogenesis. One of at least 4 proteins (Era, RbfA, RimM and RsgA/YjeQ) that assist in the late assembly stage of the 30S ribosomal subunit. Its presence in the 30S subunit may prevent translation initiation. Seems to be critical for maintaining cell growth and cell divison rates; [...]
Magnesium and cobalt transporter; Plays a role in the transport of magnesium and cobalt ions
Ribonuclease iii; Digests double-stranded RNA formed within single-strand substrates, but not RNA-DNA hybrids. Involved in the processing of rRNA precursors, viral transcripts, some mRNAs and at least 1 tRNA (metY, a minor form of tRNA-init-Met). Cleaves the 30S primary rRNA transcript to yield the immediate precursors to the 16S and 23S rRNAs; cleavage can occur in assembled 30S, 50S and even 70S subunits and is influenced by the presence of ribosomal proteins. The E.coli enzyme does not cleave R.capsulatus rRNA precursor, although R.capsulatus will complement an E.coli disruption, sh [...]
16S rRNA m(6)A1518, m(6)A1519 dimethyltransferase, SAM-dependent; Specifically dimethylates two adjacent adenosines (A1518 and A1519) in the loop of a conserved hairpin near the 3'-end of 16S rRNA in the 30S particle. May play a critical role in biogenesis of 30S subunits. Has also a DNA glycosylase/AP lyase activity that removes C mispaired with oxidized T from DNA, and may play a role in protection of DNA against oxidative stress
Rna-binding protein hfq; RNA chaperone that binds small regulatory RNA (sRNAs) and mRNAs to facilitate mRNA translational regulation in response to envelope stress, environmental stress and changes in metabolite concentrations. Involved in the regulation of stress responses mediated by the sigma factors RpoS, sigma-E and sigma-32 . Binds with high specificity to tRNAs . Binds sRNA antitoxin RalA . In vitro, stimulates synthesis of long tails by poly(A) polymerase I . Required for RNA phage Qbeta replication . Seems to play a role in persister cell formation; upon overexpression decreas [...]
Apolipoprotein n-acyltransferase; Catalyzes the phospholipid dependent N-acylation of the N- terminal cysteine of apolipoprotein, the last step in lipoprotein maturation Utilizes a two-step reaction via a ping-pong mechanism . Lnt undergoes covalent modification in the presence of phospholipids, resulting in a thioester acyl-enzyme intermediate. It then transfers the acyl chain to the amine group of the N-terminal diacylglyceryl-modified cysteine of apolipoprotein, leading to the formation of mature triacylated lipoprotein . In vitro, can utilize the phospholipids phosphatidylethanolam [...]
Putative (di)nucleoside polyphosphate hydrolase; Master regulator of 5'-end-dependent mRNA decay . Accelerates the degradation of transcripts by removing pyrophosphate from the 5'-end of triphosphorylated RNA, leading to a more labile monophosphorylated state that can stimulate subsequent ribonuclease cleavage . Preferentially hydrolyzes diadenosine penta-phosphate with ATP as one of the reaction products . Also able to hydrolyze diadenosine hexa- and tetra-phosphate . Has no activity on diadenosine tri-phosphate, ADP-ribose, NADH and UDP-glucose . In an RNase PH (rph) wild-type strain [...]
Small subunit ribosomal protein s11; Located on the platform of the 30S subunit, it bridges several disparate RNA helices of the 16S rRNA. Forms part of the Shine- Dalgarno cleft in the 70S ribosome (By similarity)
Polynucleotide phosphorylase/polyadenylase; Involved in mRNA degradation. Catalyzes the phosphorolysis of single-stranded polyribonucleotides processively in the 3'- to 5'- direction. Also involved, along with RNase II, in tRNA processing. RNases II and R contribute to rRNA degradation during starvation, while RNase R and PNPase are the major contributors to quality control of rRNA during steady state growth
