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

ihfBIntegration host factor subunit beta; One of the 2 subunits of integration host factor (IHF), a specific DNA-binding protein that functions in genetic recombination as well as in transcriptional and translational control (94 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ihfA
Integration host factor subunit alpha; One of the 2 subunits of integration host factor (IHF), a specific DNA-binding protein that functions in genetic recombination as well as in transcriptional and translational control. Binds to hundreds of transcriptionally inactive, AT-rich DNA sites, approximately half its binding sites are in non-coding DNA, which only accounts for about 10% of the genome

rpsA
30S ribosomal protein S1; Required for translation of most natural mRNAs except for leaderless mRNA. Binds mRNA upstream of the Shine-Dalgarno (SD) sequence and helps it bind to the 30S ribosomal subunit; acts as an RNA chaperone to unfold structured mRNA on the ribosome but is not essential for mRNAs with strong SDs and little 5'-UTR structure, thus it may help fine-tune which mRNAs that are translated. Unwinds dsRNA by binding to transiently formed ssRNA regions; binds about 10 nucleotides. Has a preference for polypyrimidine tracts. Negatively autoregulates its own translation

cmk
Cytidylate kinase; ATP, dATP, and GTP are equally effective as phosphate donors. CMP and dCMP are the best phosphate acceptors
   
 0.947
lpxK
Tetraacyldisaccharide 4'-kinase; Transfers the gamma-phosphate of ATP to the 4'-position of a tetraacyldisaccharide 1-phosphate intermediate (termed DS-1- P) to form tetraacyldisaccharide 1,4'-bis-phosphate (lipid IVA)

ygbF
CRISPR-associated endoribonuclease Cas2; CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat), is an adaptive immune system that provides protection against mobile genetic elements (viruses, transposable elements and conjugative plasmids). CRISPR clusters contain sequences complementary to antecedent mobile elements and target invading nucleic acids. CRISPR clusters are transcribed and processed into CRISPR RNA (crRNA). The Cas1-Cas2 complex is involved in CRISPR adaptation, the first stage of CRISPR immunity, being required for the addition/removal of CRISPR spacers at th [...]

serC
Phosphoserine aminotransferase; Catalyzes the reversible conversion of 3- phosphohydroxypyruvate to phosphoserine and of 3-hydroxy-2-oxo-4- phosphonooxybutanoate to phosphohydroxythreonine. Is involved in both pyridoxine and serine biosynthesis; Belongs to the class-V pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. SerC subfamily

hcaT
Probable 3-phenylpropionic acid transporter; Probable permease involved in the uptake of 3- phenylpropionic acid

csrA
Carbon storage regulator; A key translational regulator that binds mRNA to regulate translation initiation and/or mRNA stability, initially identified for its effects on central carbon metabolism. Mediates global changes in gene expression, shifting from rapid growth to stress survival by linking envelope stress, the stringent response and the catabolite repression systems. Binds to the 5'-UTR of mRNA to repress or activate translation; 2 binding sites on the homodimer can bridge 2 sites within target RNA (By similarity). Exerts reciprocal effects on enzymes of gluconeogenesis and glyc [...]
