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

ycgZProbably 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 (78 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ariR
Probably a connector protein for RcsB/C regulation of biofilm and acid-resistance, providing additional signal input into the two- component signaling pathway. May serve to stimulate biofilm maturation, via the Rcs phosphorelay. Regulates expression of genes involved in acid-resistance and biofilm formation, including the RcsB/C two- component system. May be a non-specific DNA-binding protein that binds genes and/or intergenic regions via a geometric recognition. Also confers resistance to H(2)O(2). Overexpression at 28 and 16 degrees Celsius increases the production of colanic acid, a [...]

ymgA
Probably a connector protein for RcsB/C regulation of biofilm formation, providing additional signal input into the two-component signaling pathway. May serve to stimulate biofilm maturation, probably via the Rcs phosphorelay. Mild overexpression at 16 degrees Celsius increases the production of colanic acid, an exopolysaccharide and matrix component, and reduces adhesive curli fimbriae expression. Both of these effects require RcsB

bluR
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

bluF
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.
