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

ybjGUndecaprenyl pyrophosphate phosphatase; Overexpression leads to increased undecaprenyl diphosphatase activity and to increased resistance to bacitracin. May have a preferred substrate other than undecaprenyl diphosphate in vivo (198 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Undecaprenyl pyrophosphate phosphatase; Catalyzes the dephosphorylation of undecaprenyl diphosphate (UPP). Confers resistance to bacitracin
Undecaprenyl pyrophosphate synthase; Generates ditrans,octacis-undecaprenyl pyrophosphate (UPP) from isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP) and farnesyl diphosphate (FPP). UPP is the precursor of glycosyl carrier lipid in the biosynthesis of bacterial cell wall polysaccharide components such as peptidoglycan and lipopolysaccharide
Phospho-n-acetylmuramoyl-pentapeptide-transferase; First step of the lipid cycle reactions in the biosynthesis of the cell wall peptidoglycan
Phosphatidylglycerophosphatase b; Catalyzes the dephosphorylation of diacylglycerol diphosphate (DGPP) to phosphatidate (PA) and the subsequent dephosphorylation of PA to diacylglycerol (DAG). Also has undecaprenyl pyrophosphate phosphatase activity, required for the biosynthesis of the lipid carrier undecaprenyl phosphate. Can also use lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and phosphatidylglycerophosphate as substrates. The pattern of activities varies according to subcellular location, PGP phosphatase activity is higher in the cytoplasmic membrane, whereas PA and LPA phosphatase activities are [...]
Kdo2-lipid A phosphotransferase; Involved in the modification of the lipid A domain of lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Transfers a phosphate group from undecaprenyl pyrophosphate (C55-PP) to lipid A to form lipid A 1- diphosphate. Contributes to the recycling of undecaprenyl phosphate (C55-P) . In vitro, has low undecaprenyl-diphosphate phosphatase activity

deoxyribose-5-phosphate-inducible deoxyribose operon transcriptional repressor; This protein is one of the repressors that regulate the expression of deoCABD genes, which encode nucleotide and deoxy ribonucleotide catabolizing enzymes. It also negatively regulates the expression of nupG (a transport protein) and tsx (a pore-forming protein). The inducer is deoxyribose-5-phosphate
Mfs transporter, dha1 family, multidrug/chloramphenicol efflux transport protein; Efflux pump driven by the proton motive force. Confers resistance to a broad spectrum of chemically unrelated drugs. Confers resistance to a diverse group of cationic or zwitterionic lipophilic compounds such as ethidium bromide, tetraphenylphosphonium, rhodamine, daunomycin, benzalkonium, rifampicin, tetracycline, puromycin, and to chemically unrelated, clinically important antibiotics such as chloramphenicol, erythromycin, and certain aminoglycosides and fluoroquinolones. Overexpression results in isopr [...]
Udpglucose 6-dehydrogenase; UDP-glucose 6-dehydrogenase; Protein involved in cell surface antigen activity, host-interacting, colanic acid biosynthetic process and response to desiccation
Phosphatidylglycerophosphatase a; Lipid phosphatase which dephosphorylates phosphatidylglycerophosphate (PGP) to phosphatidylglycerol (PG)
