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

rluB23S rRNA pseudouridine(2605) synthase; Responsible for synthesis of pseudouridine from uracil-2605 in 23S ribosomal RNA (291 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
23S rRNA pseudouridine(955/2504/2580) synthase; Responsible for synthesis of pseudouridine from uracil at positions 955, 2504 and 2580 in 23S ribosomal RNA
Trna pseudouridine32 synthase / 23s rrna pseudouridine746 synthase; Dual specificity enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of pseudouridine from uracil-746 in 23S ribosomal RNA and from uracil-32 in the anticodon stem and loop of transfer RNAs
Atp-dependent rna helicase srmb; DEAD-box RNA helicase involved in the assembly of the 50S ribosomal subunit at low temperature. Exhibits RNA-stimulated ATP hydrolysis and RNA unwinding activity. Acts before DeaD
23S rRNA (guanine2445-N2)-methyltransferase / 23S rRNA (guanine2069-N7)-methyltransferase; Specifically methylates the guanine in position 2445 (m2G2445) and the guanine in position 2069 (m7G2069) of 23S rRNA. Methylation occurs before assembly of 23S rRNA into 50S subunits
Dual specificity 23s rrna m(2)a2503, trna m(2)a37 methyltransferase, sam-dependent; Specifically methylates position 2 of adenine 2503 in 23S rRNA and position 2 of adenine 37 in tRNAs. m2A2503 modification seems to play a crucial role in the proofreading step occurring at the peptidyl transferase center and thus would serve to optimize ribosomal fidelity. Unmodified tRNA is not a suitable substrate for RlmN, which suggests that RlmN works in a late step during tRNA maturation
Queuine trna-ribosyltransferase; Catalyzes the base-exchange of a guanine (G) residue with the queuine precursor 7-aminomethyl-7-deazaguanine (PreQ1) at position 34 (anticodon wobble position) in tRNAs with GU(N) anticodons (tRNA-Asp, -Asn, -His and -Tyr). Catalysis occurs through a double-displacement mechanism. The nucleophile active site attacks the C1' of nucleotide 34 to detach the guanine base from the RNA, forming a covalent enzyme-RNA intermediate. The proton acceptor active site deprotonates the incoming PreQ1, allowing a nucleophilic attack on the C1' of the ribose to form th [...]
Trna pseudouridine(38-40) synthase; Formation of pseudouridine at positions 38, 39 and 40 in the anticodon stem and loop of transfer RNAs
Trna pseudouridine(55) synthase; Responsible for synthesis of pseudouridine from uracil-55 in the psi GC loop of transfer RNAs
23S rRNA pseudouridine(1911/1915/1917) synthase; Responsible for synthesis of pseudouridine from uracil at positions 1911, 1915 and 1917 in 23S ribosomal RNA. Isomerization occurs as a late step during the assembly of the large ribosomal subunit
50S ribosomal subunit stability factor; GTPase that plays an essential role in the late steps of ribosome biogenesis. GTPase point mutations (but not a deletion mutant) are suppressed by mild overexpression of RelA, probably due to increased levels of the stringent response mediator (p)ppGpp. 50S subunits assembled in the absence of Der are defective and unable to assemble into 70S ribosomes. GTPase activity is stimulated by YihI. Overexpression rescues an rrmJ deletion, stabilizing the 70S ribosome. Der and RrmJ are likely to share a mechanism to stabilize 50S ribosomal subunits at a [...]
