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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Gene Fusion
modFPutative molybdenum transport ATP-binding protein ModF; Involved in the transport of molybdenum into the cell. Involved in photorepair. Could act on UV-induced DNA damage other than pyrimidine dimers (490 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Deoxyribodipyrimidine photo-lyase; Involved in repair of UV radiation-induced DNA damage. Catalyzes the light-dependent monomerization (300-600 nm) of cyclobutyl pyrimidine dimers (in cis-syn configuration), which are formed between adjacent bases on the same DNA strand upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation
Molybdenum import ATP-binding protein ModC; Part of the ABC transporter complex ModABC involved in molybdenum import. Responsible for energy coupling to the transport system; Belongs to the ABC transporter superfamily. Molybdate importer (TC 3.A.1.8) family
Transcriptional regulator ModE; The ModE-Mo complex acts as a repressor of the modABC operon, involved in the transport of molybdate. Upon binding molybdate, the conformation of the protein changes, promoting dimerization of ModE-Mo. The protein dimer is then competent to bind a DNA region, upstream of the modABC operon, which contains an 8-base inverted repeat 5'-TAACGTTA-3' flanked by two CAT boxes. Acts also as an enhancer of the expression of genes coding for molybdoenzymes, both directly and indirectly. ModE also interacts with tungstate
Molybdate-binding periplasmic protein; Involved in the transport of molybdenum into the cell. Binds molybdate with high specificity and affinity
Molybdenum transport system permease protein ModB; Part of the binding-protein-dependent transport system for molybdenum; probably responsible for the translocation of the substrate across the membrane
UPF0758 protein YeeS; Putative DNA repair protein, RADC family; Belongs to the UPF0758 family
Uncharacterized protein YfbL; Putative aminopeptidase
UPF0758 protein YfjY; Putative DNA repair protein; Belongs to the UPF0758 family
Uncharacterized protein YdaV; Putative DNA replication factor
Putative general secretion pathway protein B; Part of a cryptic operon that encodes proteins involved in type II secretion pathway in other organisms, but is not expressed in strain K12 under standard laboratory conditions. May play a regulatory role under conditions of derepressed gsp gene expression
