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

Predicted Functional Partners:
Voltage-gated potassium channel Kch; K(+)-specific ion channel. May play a role in the defense against osmotic shock
Probable prophage lysozyme; Essential for lysis of bacterial cell wall, by showing cell wall hydrolyzing activity
Cardiolipin synthase A; Catalyzes the reversible phosphatidyl group transfer from one phosphatidylglycerol molecule to another to form cardiolipin (CL) (diphosphatidylglycerol) and glycerol
Lysozyme RrrD; Essential for lysis of bacterial cell wall, by showing cell wall hydrolyzing activity. Exhibits lytic activity against E.coli and S.typhi cell wall substrate; Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 24 family
Protein SprT; Involved in bolA gene expression at the stationary phase
Protein TonB; Interacts with outer membrane receptor proteins that carry out high-affinity binding and energy dependent uptake into the periplasmic space of specific substrates such as cobalamin, and various iron compounds (such as iron dicitrate, enterochelin, aerobactin, etc.). In the absence of TonB these receptors bind their substrates but do not carry out active transport. TonB also interacts with some colicins and is involved in the energy- dependent, irreversible steps of bacteriophages phi 80 and T1 infection. It could act to transduce energy from the cytoplasmic membrane to sp [...]
Tryptophan--tRNA ligase; Catalyzes the attachment of tryptophan to tRNA(Trp). Amino acylates tRNA(Trp) with both L- and D-tryptophan, although D-tryptophan is a poor substrate; Belongs to the class-I aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family
annotation not available
tRNA 5-methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine biosynthesis bifunctional protein MnmC; Catalyzes the last two steps in the biosynthesis of 5- methylaminomethyl-2-thiouridine (mnm(5)s(2)U) at the wobble position (U34) in tRNA. Catalyzes the FAD-dependent demodification of cmnm(5)s(2)U34 to nm(5)s(2)U34, followed by the transfer of a methyl group from S-adenosyl-L-methionine to nm(5)s(2)U34, to form mnm(5)s(2)U34; In the N-terminal section; belongs to the methyltransferase superfamily. tRNA (mnm(5)s(2)U34)- methyltransferase family
Glutamate synthase [NADPH] large chain; Catalyzes the conversion of L-glutamine and 2- oxoglutarate into two molecules of L-glutamate
