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:
a 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

Gene Fusion
pgaABiofilm adhesin polysaccharide PGA secretin; Exports the biofilm adhesin polysaccharide poly-beta-1,6-N- acetyl-D-glucosamine (PGA) across the outer membrane. The PGA transported seems to be partially N-deacetylated since N-deacetylation of PGA by PgaB is needed for PGA export through the PgaA porin. (807 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Biofilm PGA synthase PgaCD, catalytic subunit; Probable N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase that catalyzes the polymerization of single monomer units of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine to produce the linear homopolymer poly-beta-1,6-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (PGA), a biofilm adhesin polysaccharide; Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 2 family.
Biofilm PGA synthase PgaCD, regulatory subunit; Required for the synthesis of poly-beta-1,6-N-acetyl-D- glucosamine (PGA), a biofilm adhesin polysaccharide. May assist the glycosyltransferase PgaC in the polymerization of PGA.
Pleiotropic regulatory protein for carbon source metabolism; 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 [...]
poly-beta-1,6-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (PGA) N-deacetylase outer membrane export lipoprotein; Catalyzes the N-deacetylation of poly-beta-1,6-N-acetyl-D- glucosamine (PGA), a biofilm adhesin polysaccharide. N-deacetylation promotes PGA export through the PgaA porin. Belongs to the polysaccharide deacetylase family.
Cellulose synthase subunit; Required for maximal bacterial cellulose synthesis.
Transcriptional activator of nhaA; Plays a role in the positive regulation of NhaA. Belongs to the LysR transcriptional regulatory family.
Diguanylate cyclase, membrane-anchored; Probably catalyzes the synthesis of cyclic-di-GMP (c-di-GMP) via the condensation of 2 GTP molecules. Overexpression leads to a strong repression of swimming; swimming returns to normal when residues 359-360 are both mutated to Ala. Overexpression also leads to a 20-fold increase in c-di-GMP levels in vivo. Cyclic-di-GMP is a second messenger which controls cell surface-associated traits in bacteria.
Glucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase; Involved in the biosynthesis of ADP-glucose, a building block required for the elongation reactions to produce glycogen. Catalyzes the reaction between ATP and alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate (G1P) to produce pyrophosphate and ADP-Glc; Belongs to the bacterial/plant glucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase family.
Carbon starvation protein involved in peptide utilization; Involved in peptide utilization during carbon starvation.
csgBAC operon transcriptional regulator; The master regulator for adhesive curli fimbriae expression; necessary for transcription of the csgBAC/ymdA operon. Plays a positive role in biofilm formation. May have the capability to respond to starvation and/or high cell density by activating csgBA transcription. Low-level constitutive expression confers an adherent curli fimbriae- expressing phenotype, up-regulates 10 genes and down-regulates 14 others.
