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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
ycgXUncharacterized protein ycgx; To E.coli YbcV and YdfO (134 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Merr family transcriptional regulator, repressor of blue light- and temperature-responsive genes; Controls the expression of several small proteins that may play a role in biofilm maturation. Binds to and represses the operator of the ycgZ-ymgA-ariR-ymgC operon and also regulates ynaK. Binding is antagonized by BluF upon blue light (470 nm) irradiation. Blue light may increase the affinity of BluF for BluR, allowing it to be released from its operator
Inner membrane protein that interacts with cell division proteins; Could be involved in cell division. May participate in the stabilization of the cell divisome under specific conditions
E14 prophage; putative SAM-dependent methyltransferase; Uncharacterized protein YmfD; Phage or Prophage Related
Putative cytochrome c peroxidase; Protein involved in cytochrome complex assembly
Probably a connector protein for RcsB/C regulation of biofilm formation, providing additional signal input into the two-component signaling pathway. Partially antagonizes the activities of YmgA and AriR, proteins that, via the Rcs phosphorelay, promote the synthesis of colanic acid, an exopolysaccharide and matrix component
annotation not available
Putative membrane-anchored cyclic-di-gmp phosphodiesterase; Phosphodiesterase (PDE) that catalyzes the hydrolysis of cyclic-di-GMP (c-di-GMP) to 5'-pGpG
Blue light- and temperature-responsive anti-repressor; Binds to and releases the BluR repressor from its bound DNA target in a blue light-dependent (470 nm) fashion. A shift to low temperature also triggers a BluF-mediated relief of repression by BluR, suggesting BluF may serve as a thermometer. Blue light may act to increase the affinity of BluF for BluR, allowing it to be released from its operator. The protein has a reversible photocycle, and undergoes structural changes, probably in the EAL domain, in response to light
annotation not available
Uncharacterized protein YfdF; Protein involved in DNA metabolic process
