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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
gnsBProtein GnsB; Overexpression increases levels of unsaturated fatty acids and suppresses both the temperature-sensitive fabA6 mutation and cold-sensitive secG null mutation (57 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
annotation not available
Ribonuclease G; Involved in the processing of the 5'-end of 16S rRNA. Could be involved in chromosome segregation and cell division. It may be one of the components of the cytoplasmic axial filaments bundles or merely regulate the formation of this structure; Belongs to the RNase E/G family. RNase G subfamily
Protein RhsA; Rhs elements have a nonessential function. They may play an important role in the natural ecology of the cell
Cell division protein ZapA; Activator of cell division through the inhibition of FtsZ GTPase activity, therefore promoting FtsZ assembly into bundles of protofilaments necessary for the formation of the division Z ring. It is recruited early at mid-cell but it is not essential for cell division; Belongs to the ZapA family. Type 1 subfamily
Lipopolysaccharide core biosynthesis; Protein involved in cell surface antigen activity, host-interacting and lipopolysaccharide core region biosynthetic process
FKBP-type peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase SlyD; Folding helper with both chaperone and peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase (PPIase) activities. Chaperone activity prevents aggregation of unfolded or partially folded proteins and promotes their correct folding. PPIases catalyze the cis-trans isomerization of Xaa-Pro bonds of peptides, which accelerates slow steps of protein folding and thus shortens the lifetime of intermediates. Both strategies lower the concentration of intermediates and increase the productivity and yield of the folding reaction. SlyD could be involved in Tat-dep [...]
Uncharacterized protein YnfN; Phage or Prophage Related
