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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
ybhHPutative isomerase YbhH; Putative enzyme; Not classified; Belongs to the PrpF family (350 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Uncharacterized HTH-type transcriptional regulator YbhD; Putative transcriptional regulator LYSR-type; Protein involved in transcription activator activity, transcription repressor activity and transcription
Uncharacterized protein YdaS; Phage or Prophage Related
Putative membrane pump protein
2-methylisocitrate lyase; Involved in the catabolism of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) via the 2-methylcitrate cycle I (propionate degradation route). Catalyzes the thermodynamically favored C-C bond cleavage of (2R,3S)-2-methylisocitrate to yield pyruvate and succinate via an alpha-carboxy-carbanion intermediate; Belongs to the isocitrate lyase/PEP mutase superfamily. Methylisocitrate lyase family
2-methylcitrate dehydratase; Involved in the catabolism of short chain fatty acids (SCFA) via the tricarboxylic acid (TCA)(acetyl degradation route) and via the 2-methylcitrate cycle I (propionate degradation route). Catalyzes the stereospecific dehydration of (2S,3S)-2- methylcitrate (2-MC) to yield the cis isomer of 2-methyl- aconitate. It is also able to catalyze the dehydration of citrate and the hydration of cis-aconitate at a lower rate. Due to its broad substrate specificity, it seems to be responsible for the residual aconitase activity of the acnAB-null mutant; Belongs to the [...]
Aconitate hydratase A; Catalyzes the reversible isomerization of citrate to isocitrate via cis-aconitate. The apo form of AcnA functions as a RNA-binding regulatory protein which plays a role as a maintenance or survival enzyme during nutritional or oxidative stress. During oxidative stress inactive AcnA apo-enzyme without iron sulfur clusters binds the acnA mRNA 3' UTRs (untranslated regions), stabilizes acnA mRNA and increases AcnA synthesis, thus mediating a post-transcriptional positive autoregulatory switch. AcnA also enhances the stability of the sodA transcript
Transcription antitermination protein NusB; Involved in transcription antitermination. Required for transcription of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes. Binds specifically to the boxA antiterminator sequence of the ribosomal RNA (rrn) operons. The affinity of NusB for the boxA RNA sequence is significantly increased in the presence of the ribosomal protein S10. NusB may serve as a loading factor that ensures efficient entry of S10 into the transcription complexes. It also modulates the rrn boxA-mediated transcription elongation rates
Protein TolQ; Involved in the TonB-independent uptake of group A colicins (colicins A, E1, E2, E3, and K)
Uncharacterized protein YbhJ; Putative enzyme
ATP synthase gamma chain; Produces ATP from ADP in the presence of a proton gradient across the membrane. The gamma chain is believed to be important in regulating ATPase activity and the flow of protons through the CF(0) complex
