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

lsrKAutoinducer-2 kinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of autoinducer-2 (AI-2) to phospho-AI-2, which subsequently inactivates the transcriptional regulator LsrR and leads to the transcription of the lsr operon. Phosphorylates the ring-open form of (S)-4,5-dihydroxypentane-2,3-dione (DPD), which is the precursor to all AI-2 signaling molecules, at the C5 position. Required for the regulation of the lsr operon and many other genes (530 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
lsrG
(4S)-4-hydroxy-5-phosphonooxypentane-2,3-dione isomerase; Involved in the degradation of phospho-AI-2, thereby terminating induction of the lsr operon and closing the AI-2 signaling cycle. Catalyzes the conversion of (4S)-4-hydroxy-5- phosphonooxypentane-2,3-dione (P-DPD) to 3-hydroxy-5- phosphonooxypentane-2,4-dione (P-HPD)
 
 
 0.999
lsrR
Dna-binding transcriptional repressor lsrr; Regulates transcription of many different genes. In the absence of autoinducer 2 (AI-2), represses transcription of the lsrACDBFG operon and its own transcription. In the presence of AI-2, LsrR is inactivated by binding phospho-AI-2, leading to the transcription of the lsr genes
 
  
 0.998
lsrB
Autoinducer-2 ABC transporter periplasmic binding protein; Part of the ABC transporter complex LsrABCD involved in autoinducer 2 (AI-2) import. Binds AI-2 and delivers it to the LsrC and LsrD permeases (Probable)
 
  
 0.997
lsrF
3-hydroxy-5-phosphonooxypentane-2,4-dione thiolase; Involved in the degradation of phospho-AI-2, thereby terminating induction of the lsr operon and closing the AI-2 signaling cycle. Catalyzes the transfer of an acetyl moiety from 3-hydroxy-5- phosphonooxypentane-2,4-dione to CoA to form glycerone phosphate and acetyl-CoA
 
 
 0.996
ptsH
Phosphohistidinoprotein-hexose phosphotransferase component of pts system (hpr); General (non sugar-specific) component of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS). This major carbohydrate active-transport system catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. The phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) is transferred to the phosphoryl carrier protein HPr by enzyme I. Phospho-HPr then transfers it to the PTS EIIA domain
    
 0.988
lsrC
Autoinducer-2 ABC transporter membrane subunit LsrC; Part of the ABC transporter complex LsrABCD involved in autoinducer 2 (AI-2) import. Probably responsible for the translocation of the substrate across the membrane (Probable)
 
  
 0.985
lsrD
Autoinducer-2 ABC transporter membrane subunit LsrD; Part of the ABC transporter complex LsrABCD involved in autoinducer 2 (AI-2) import. Probably responsible for the translocation of the substrate across the membrane (Probable)
 
  
 0.985
lsrA
Autoinducer-2 ABC transporter ATP binding subunit; Part of the ABC transporter complex LsrABCD involved in autoinducer 2 (AI-2) import. Responsible for energy coupling to the transport system (Probable). This protein is essential for aerobic growth
 
  
 0.984
luxS
S-ribosylhomocysteine lyase; Involved in the synthesis of autoinducer 2 (AI-2) which is secreted by bacteria and is used to communicate both the cell density and the metabolic potential of the environment. The regulation of gene expression in response to changes in cell density is called quorum sensing. Catalyzes the transformation of S-ribosylhomocysteine (RHC) to homocysteine (HC) and 4,5-dihydroxy-2,3-pentadione (DPD)
      
 0.900
tam
Trans-aconitate 2-methyltransferase; Catalyzes the S-adenosylmethionine monomethyl esterification of trans-aconitate at high affinity and of cis-aconitate, isocitrate, and citrate at lower velocities and affinities
