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

Predicted Functional Partners:
Hnh nuclease family protein; Belongs to the HNH nuclease family
Cysteine desulfuration protein sufe; Stimulates the cysteine desulfurase activity of CsdA. Contains a cysteine residue (Cys-61) that acts to accept sulfur liberated via the desulfurase activity of CsdA. May be able to transfer sulfur to TcdA/CsdL. Seems to support the function of TcdA in the generation of cyclic threonylcarbamoyladenosine at position 37 (ct(6)A37) in tRNAs that read codons beginning with adenine. Does not appear to participate in Fe/S biogenesis
Sulfurtransferase for 2-thiolation step of mnm(5)-s(2)u34-trna synthesis; Part of a sulfur-relay system required for 2-thiolation of 5- methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine (mnm(5)s(2)U) at tRNA wobble positions. Accepts sulfur from TusA and transfers it in turn to TusE
Uncharacterized protein; Highly specific potassium binding protein that is required for normal growth in the presence of high levels of external K(+). May act as a sensor of cytoplasmic K(+) concentration. Binds a single K(+) ion, which induces a large conformational change. Can also bind the larger alkali metal ions Rb(+) and Cs(+), and NH(4)(+) . May be involved in the regulation of peptidoglycan cross-linking
Mechanosensitive channel protein, intermediate conductance, k+ regulated; Mechanosensitive channel that opens in response to membrane tension and specific ionic conditions. Requires high concentrations of external K(+), NH(4)(+), Rb(+) or Cs(+) to gate. May participate in the regulation of osmotic pressure changes within the cell, although it does not appear to have a major role in osmolarity regulation. Forms an ion channel of 1.0 nanosiemens conductance. The channel can remain active for between 30 seconds and over 3 minutes; it does not desensitize upon extended pressure. Its activi [...]
Trna threonylcarbamoyladenosine dehydratase; Catalyzes the ATP-dependent dehydration of threonylcarbamoyladenosine at position 37 (t(6)A37) to form cyclic t(6)A37 (ct(6)A37) in tRNAs that read codons beginning with adenine. TcdA is also part of a sulfur transfer pathway; is able to accept sulfur from CsdA directly in vitro, but CsdE might act as the sulfur donor in vivo
mnm(5)-s(2)U34-tRNA 2-thiolation sulfurtransferase; 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
Ribosomal silencing factor rsfs; Functions as a ribosomal silencing factor. Addition to isolated ribosomal subunits partially inhibits their association, preventing translation. Interacts with ribosomal protein L14 (rplN), blocking formation of intersubunit bridge B8, preventing association of the 30S and 50S ribosomal subunits and the formation of functional ribosomes, thus repressing translation
mnm(5)-s(2)U34-tRNA 2-thiolation sulfurtransferase; Sulfur carrier protein involved in sulfur trafficking in the cell. Part of a sulfur-relay system required for 2-thiolation during synthesis of 2-thiouridine of the modified wobble base 5- methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine (mnm(5)s(2)U) in tRNA . Interacts with IscS and stimulates its cysteine desulfurase activity . Accepts an activated sulfur from IscS, which is then transferred to TusD, and thus determines the direction of sulfur flow from IscS to 2-thiouridine formation . Also appears to be involved in sulfur transfer for the biosynth [...]
mnm(5)-s(2)U34-tRNA synthesis 2-thiolation protein; Part of a sulfur-relay system required for 2-thiolation of 5- methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine (mnm(5)s(2)U) at tRNA wobble positions
