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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
ychAUPF0162 protein YchA; Protein involved in regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; Belongs to the UPF0162 family (269 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein involved in regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent
Acid stress protein IbaG; Involved in cell resistance against acid stress
Peptide chain release factor RF1; Peptide chain release factor 1 directs the termination of translation in response to the peptide chain termination codons UAG and UAA
Release factor glutamine methyltransferase; Methylates the class 1 translation termination release factors RF1/PrfA and RF2/PrfB on the glutamine residue of the universally conserved GGQ motif, i.e. on 'Gln-235' in RF1 and on 'Gln-252' in RF2; Belongs to the protein N5-glutamine methyltransferase family. PrmC subfamily
2-dehydro-3-deoxyphosphooctonate aldolase; Synthesis of KDO 8-P which is required for lipid A maturation and cellular growth
Glutamyl-tRNA reductase; Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of glutamyl- tRNA(Glu) to glutamate 1-semialdehyde (GSA). In the absence of NADPH, exhibits substrate esterase activity, leading to the release of glutamate from tRNA; Belongs to the glutamyl-tRNA reductase family
4-diphosphocytidyl-2-C-methyl-D-erythritol kinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of the position 2 hydroxy group of 4-diphosphocytidyl-2C-methyl-D-erythritol. Phosphorylates isopentenyl phosphate at low rates. Also acts on isopentenol, and, much less efficiently, dimethylallyl alcohol. Dimethylallyl monophosphate does not serve as a substrate
Cold shock protein; Protein involved in transcription activator activity, transcription and response to temperature stimulus
annotation not available
DNA-binding transcriptional regulator BolA; Transcriptional regulator that plays an important role in general stress response. Has many effects on cell morphology, cell growth and cell division. Acts by regulating the transcription of many genes, including dacA (PBP-5), dacC (PBP-6), ampC and mreB. Probably involved in the coordination of genes that adapt the cell physiology in order to enhance cell adaptation and survival under stress conditions. Essential for normal cell morphology in stationary phase and under conditions of starvation. Also regulates a complex network of genes encod [...]
