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

ybiOMechanosensitive channel protein, intermediate conductance; Mechanosensitive channel that protects cells against hypoosmotic stress when highly overexpressed (741 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ynaI
Mechanosensitive channel protein, very small conductance; Mechanosensitive channel that protects cells against hypoosmotic stress when highly overexpressed
      
 0.938
mscM
Mechanosensitive channel protein, miniconductance; Mechanosensitive channel that protects cells against hypoosmotic stress when highly overexpressed. Gates spontaneously in response to increased membrane tension
     
 0.934
ybdG
Mechanosensitive channel protein, miniconductance; Mechanosensitive channel of miniconductance that confers protection against mild hypoosmotic shock. Overexpression confers protection against severe shocks
      
 0.933
mscL
Mechanosensitive channel protein, high conductance; Mechanosensitive channel that opens in response to stretch forces in the membrane lipid bilayer. Forms a nonselective ion channel with a conductance of about 4 nanosiemens. Participates in the regulation of osmotic pressure changes within the cell. Opens at a pressure just below that which would cause cell disruption and death. The force required to trigger channel opening depends on the membrane lipids composition
     
 0.890
mscS
Mechanosensitive channel protein, small conductance; Mechanosensitive channel that participates in the regulation of osmotic pressure changes within the cell, opening in response to stretch forces in the membrane lipid bilayer, without the need for other proteins. Contributes to normal resistance to hypoosmotic shock. Forms an ion channel of 1.0 nanosiemens conductance with a slight preference for anions. The channel is sensitive to voltage; as the membrane is depolarized, less tension is required to open the channel and vice versa. The channel is characterized by short bursts of activ [...]

ybgS
Putative periplasmic protein; Uncharacterized protein YbgS; Putative homeobox protein

yajI
annotation not available
  
     0.574
nanS
9-O-acetyl-N-acetylneuraminic acid deacetylase; Probably catalyzes the hydrolysis of the 9-O-acetyl group of 9-O-acetyl-N-acetylneuraminate (Neu5,9Ac2). Is required for growth of E.coli on Neu5,9Ac2, an alternative sialic acid commonly found in mammalian host mucosal sites, in particular in the human intestine

glnP
L-glutamine abc transporter membrane subunit; Part of the binding-protein-dependent transport system for glutamine; probably responsible for the translocation of the substrate across the membrane
