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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

mlcProtein mlc; Transcriptional repressor that regulates the expression of proteins that are part of the phosphotransferase system for sugar uptake. Regulates the expression of malT (406 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ptsG
PTS system glucose-specific EIICB component; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. The enzyme II complex composed of PtsG and Crr is involved in glucose transport. Also functions as a chemoreceptor monitoring the environment for changes in sugar concentration and an effector modulating the activity of the transcriptional repressor Mlc
   
 
 0.988
mtfA
Protein MtfA; Involved in the regulation of ptsG expression by binding and inactivating Mlc; Belongs to the MtfA family
   
 
 0.965
frsA
Esterase FrsA; Displays esterase activity toward pNP-butyrate
  
   
 0.784
malT
HTH-type transcriptional regulator MalT; Positively regulates the transcription of the maltose regulon whose gene products are responsible for uptake and catabolism of malto-oligosaccharides. Binds and recognizes a DNA motif (called the malT box): 5'-GGA[TG]GA-3'
   
  
 0.764
crr
PTS system glucose-specific EIIA component; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. The enzyme II complex composed of PtsG and Crr is involved in glucose transport. The non-phosphorylated EIII-Glc is an inhibitor for uptake of certain sugars such as maltose, melibiose, lactose, and glycerol. Phosphorylated EIII-Glc, however, may be an activator for adenylate cyclase. It is an impo [...]
      
 0.758
galS
HTH-type transcriptional regulator GalS; Repressor of the mgl operon. Binds galactose and D- fucose as inducers. GalS binds to an operator DNA sequence within its own coding sequence (corresponding to residues 15 to 20)
      
 0.751
crp
cAMP-activated global transcriptional regulator CRP; A global transcription regulator. Complexes with cyclic AMP (cAMP) which allosterically activates DNA binding (to consensus sequence 5'-AAATGTGATCTAGATCACATTT-3') to directly regulate the transcription of about 300 genes in about 200 operons and indirectly regulate the expression of about half the genome. There are 3 classes of CRP promoters; class I promoters have a single CRP-binding site upstream of the RNA polymerase (RNAP)- binding site, whereas in class II promoters the single CRP- and RNAP-binding site overlap, CRP making mult [...]
      
 0.750
ptsI
Phosphoenolpyruvate-protein phosphotransferase; 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. Enzyme I transfers the phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to the phosphoryl carrier protein (HPr). Can also use (Z)-3-fluoro-PEP (ZFPEP), (Z)-3-methyl-PEP (ZMePEP), (Z)-3-chloro-PEP (ZClPEP) and (E)-3-chloro-PEP (EClPEP) as alternative ph [...]
     
 0.685
ptsH
Phosphocarrier protein 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
      
 0.684
cyaA
Adenylate cyclase; Catalyzes the formation of the second messenger cAMP from ATP. Its transcript is probably degraded by endoribonuclease LS (rnlA), decreasing cAMP levels and the negative regulator Crp- cAMP, which then induces its own transcription again
