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

elfAPart of the elfADCG-ycbUVF fimbrial operon, which promotes adhesion of bacteria to different abiotic surfaces. ElfA is the major fimbrial subunit produced by this operon. (179 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
elfD
Part of the elfADCG-ycbUVF fimbrial operon, which promotes adhesion of bacteria to different abiotic surfaces. Could be required for the biogenesis of the ElfA fimbriae
 
  
 0.974
ycbF
Part of the elfADCG-ycbUVF fimbrial operon, which promotes adhesion of bacteria to different abiotic surfaces. Could be required for the biogenesis of fimbriae
 
  
 0.973
ycbU
Part of the elfADCG-ycbUVF fimbrial operon, which promotes adhesion of bacteria to different abiotic surfaces.
 
   
 0.965
elfC
Part of the elfADCG-ycbUVF fimbrial operon, which promotes adhesion of bacteria to different abiotic surfaces. Could be involved in the export and assembly of the ElfA fimbrial subunits across the outer membrane
 
   
 0.945
elfG
Part of the elfADCG-ycbUVF fimbrial operon, which promotes adhesion of bacteria to different abiotic surfaces.
 
   
 0.928
ecpA
Part of the ecpRABCDE operon, which encodes the E.coli common pilus (ECP). ECP is found in both commensal and pathogenic strains and plays a dual role in early-stage biofilm development and host cell recognition. Major subunit of the fimbria (By similarity).
  
   
 0.909
ybgO
May be involved in a fimbrial system chaperoned by YbgP and exported by YbgQ
  
   
 0.798
ycbV
Part of the elfADCG-ycbUVF fimbrial operon, which promotes adhesion of bacteria to different abiotic surfaces.
 
   
0.754
yqiH
Could be required for the biogenesis of a putative fimbria.
  
 
   0.752
ygiL
Putative fimbrial-like protein
  
     0.750
