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

Gene Fusion
fiuPutative iron siderophore outer membrane transporter; Involved in the active transport across the outer membrane of iron complexed with catecholate siderophores such as dihydroxybenzoylserine and dihydroxybenzoate. It derives its energy for transport by interacting with the trans-periplasmic membrane protein TonB. Can also transport catechol-substituted cephalosporins. Receptor for microcins M, H47 and E492 (760 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Fe(ii)-dependent oxygenase superfamily protein; PKHD-type hydroxylase YbiX; Putative enzyme
Isochorismate synthase entc; Involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin (macrocyclic trimeric lactone of N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-serine). Catalyzes the reversible conversion of chorismate to isochorismate
Not yet known. Postulated to participate in iron transport. Outer membrane receptor for colicins IA and IB
annotation not available
Ferric enterobactin outer membrane transporter; This protein is involved in the initial step of iron uptake by binding ferrienterobactin (Fe-ENT), an iron chelatin siderophore that allows E.coli to extract iron from the environment. FepA also acts as a receptor for colicins B and D
Membrane spanning protein in tonb-exbb-exbd complex; Involved in the TonB-dependent energy-dependent transport of various receptor-bound substrates. Protects ExbD from proteolytic degradation and functionally stabilizes TonB
Involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin (enterochelin), which is a macrocyclic trimeric lactone of N-(2,3- dihydroxybenzoyl)-serine. The serine trilactone serves as a scaffolding for the three catechol functionalities that provide hexadentate coordination for the tightly ligated iron(2+) atoms. EntB is a bifunctional protein that serves as an isochorismate lyase and an aryl carrier protein (ArCP). Catalyzes the conversion of isochorismate to 2,3-dihydro-2,3-dihydroxybenzoate (2,3-diDHB), the precursor of 2,3- dihydroxybenzoate (DHB). In the enterobactin assembly, E [...]
2,3-dihydro-2,3-dihydroxybenzoate dehydrogenase; Involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin (enterochelin), which is a macrocyclic trimeric lactone of N-(2,3- dihydroxybenzoyl)-serine. Catalyzes the reversible NAD-dependent oxidation of the C3-hydroxyl group of 2,3-dihydro-2,3-dihydroxybenzoate (2,3-diDHB), producing the transient intermediate 2-hydroxy-3-oxo-4,6- cyclohexadiene-1-carboxylate, which undergoes rapid aromatization to the final product, 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate (2,3-DHB). Only the compounds with a C3-hydroxyl group such as methyl 2,3-dihydro-2,3- dihydroxyb [...]
Putative tonb-dependent outer membrane receptor; To H.influenzae HI_1369
Ferric iron reductase involved in ferric hydroximate transport; Involved in the reduction of ferric iron in cytoplasmic ferrioxamine B
