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

yccANegatively modulates the activity of the FtsH protease for membrane substrates. Overexpression or stabilizing YccA counteracts the FtsH-mediated degradation of SecY when the SecYEG preprotein translocator is jammed (219 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ftsH
Acts as a processive, ATP-dependent zinc metallopeptidase for both cytoplasmic and membrane proteins. Plays a role in the quality control of integral membrane proteins. Degrades a few membrane proteins that have not been assembled into complexes such as SecY, F(0) ATPase subunit a and YccA, and also cytoplasmic proteins sigma-32, LpxC, KdtA and phage lambda cII protein among others. Degrades membrane proteins in a processive manner starting at either the N- or C-terminus; recognition requires a cytoplasmic tail of about 20 residues with no apparent sequence requirements. It presumably [...]

htpX
Membrane-localized protease able to endoproteolytically degrade overproduced SecY but not YccA, another membrane protein. It seems to cleave SecY at specific cytoplasmic sites. Does not require ATP. Its natural substrate has not been identified. Probably plays a role in the quality control of integral membrane proteins.

ybhM

 0.788
tusE
Part of a sulfur-relay system required for 2-thiolation of 5- methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine (mnm(5)s(2)U) at tRNA wobble positions. Could accept sulfur from TusD
  
  
 0.787
sohB
Multicopy suppressor of the HtrA (DegP) null phenotype. It is possibly a protease, not essential for bacterial viability
  
 
 0.680
secY
The central subunit of the protein translocation channel SecYEG. Consists of two halves formed by TMs 1-5 and 6-10. These two domains form a lateral gate at the front which open onto the bilayer between TMs 2 and 7, and are clamped together by SecE at the back. The channel is closed by both a pore ring composed of hydrophobic SecY resides and a short helix (helix 2A) on the extracellular side of the membrane which forms a plug. The plug probably moves laterally to allow the channel to open. The ring and the pore may move independently. SecY is required to insert newly synthesized SecY [...]

spy
An ATP-independent periplasmic chaperone, decreases protein aggregation and helps protein refolding. Binds substrate over a large region of its convex inner surface . Substrate protein folds while it is bound to chaperone . Increasing Spy flexibility increases its substrate affinity and overall chaperone activity (shown for 3 different substrates) . Protects proteins in vitro against tannin inactivation; tannins have antimicrobial activity . Overexpression enhances the stability of otherwise unstable periplasmic proteins .

hflK
HflC and HflK help govern the stability of phage lambda cII protein, and thereby control the lysogenization frequency of phage lambda. HflKC inhibits the SecY-degrading activity of FtsH, possibly helping quality control of integral membrane proteins.
