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

ompWOuter membrane protein w; Acts as a receptor for colicin S4 (212 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
fadL
Involved in translocation of long-chain fatty acids across the outer membrane. It is a receptor for the bacteriophage T2. FadL may form a specific channel

ompA
With TolR probably plays a role in maintaining the position of the peptidoglycan cell wall in the periplasm (Probable). Plays a role in resistance to environmental stress, and a role in outer membrane functionality and cell shape . Non-covalently binds peptidoglycan (Probable). Acts as a porin with low permeability that allows slow penetration of small solutes . A very abundant protein, there can be up to 210,000 OmpA molecules per cell . Reconstitution in unilamellar lipid vesicles shows only about 3% of the protein is in an open conformation, which allows diffusion of L-arabinose at [...]

ompX
Membrane; Outer membrane constituents; Belongs to the Ail/OmpX/PagC/Lom family
     
 0.886
ompC
Outer membrane porin protein c; Forms pores that allow passive diffusion of small molecules across the outer membrane. (Microbial infection) A mixed OmpC-OmpF heterotrimer is the outer membrane receptor for toxin CdiA-EC536; polymorphisms in extracellular loops 4 and 5 of OmpC confer susceptibility to CdiA- EC536-mediated toxicity
      
 0.876
tolC
Outer membrane channel, which is required for the function of several efflux systems such as AcrAB-TolC, AcrEF-TolC, EmrAB-TolC and MacAB-TolC. These systems are involved in export of antibiotics and other toxic compounds from the cell. TolC is also involved in import of colicin E1 into the cells
    
 
 0.857
ompF
Outer membrane porin 1a (ia;b;f); Forms pores that allow passive diffusion of small molecules across the outer membrane. (Microbial infection) A mixed OmpC-OmpF heterotrimer is the outer membrane receptor for toxin CdiA-EC536; polymorphisms in extracellular loops 4 and 5 of OmpC confer susceptibility to CdiA- EC536-mediated toxicity
      
 0.828
ompT
Outer membrane protease vii (outer membrane protein 3b); Protease that can cleave T7 RNA polymerase, ferric enterobactin receptor protein (FEP), antimicrobial peptide protamine and other proteins. This protease has a specificity for paired basic residues
      
 0.820
tsx
Nucleoside channel, receptor of phage t6 and colicin k; Functions as substrate-specific channel for nucleosides and deoxynucleosides . Has a greater affinity for deoxynucleosides than for nucleosides, and does not transport free bases . In addition, constitutes the receptor for colicin K and phage T6
      
 0.790
lamB
Maltose outer membrane channel/phage lambda receptor protein; Involved in the transport of maltose and maltodextrins, indispensable for translocation of dextrins containing more than three glucosyl moieties. A hydrophobic path ('greasy slide') of aromatic residues serves to guide and select the sugars for transport through the channel. Also acts as a receptor for several bacteriophages including lambda

bamA
Bamabcde complex om biogenesis outer membrane pore-forming assembly factor; Part of the outer membrane protein assembly complex (Bam), which is involved in assembly and insertion of beta-barrel proteins into the outer membrane. Constitutes, with BamD, the core component of the assembly machinery. Efficient substrate folding and insertion into the outer membrane requires all 5 subunits A lateral gate may open between the first and last strands of the BamA beta-barrel that allows substrate to insert into the outer membrane; comparison of the structures of complete and nearly complete Bam [...]
