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

Gene Fusion
tusInhibitor of replication at ter, dna-binding protein; Trans-acting protein required for termination of DNA replication. Binds to DNA replication terminator sequences (terA to terF) to prevent the passage of replication forks. The termination efficiency will be affected by the affinity of this protein for the terminator sequence (309 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Replicative dna helicase; Participates in initiation and elongation during chromosome replication; it exhibits DNA-dependent ATPase activity and contains distinct active sites for ATP binding, DNA binding, and interaction with DnaC protein, primase, and other prepriming proteins
Plays a key role in the initiation and regulation of chromosomal replication. Binds in an ATP-dependent fashion to the origin of replication (oriC) to initiate formation of the DNA replication initiation complex exactly once per cell cycle. Binds the DnaA box (consensus sequence 5'-TTATC[CA]A[CA]A-3'); subsequent binding of DNA polymerase III subunits leads to replisome formation. The DnaA- ATP form converts to DnaA-ADP; once converted to ADP the protein cannot initiate replication, ensuring only 1 round of replication per cell cycle. DnaA can inhibit its own gene expression as well as [...]
Endonuclease that specifically degrades the RNA of RNA-DNA hybrids. RNase H participates in DNA replication; it helps to specify the origin of genomic replication by suppressing initiation at origins other than the oriC locus; along with the 5'-3' exonuclease of pol1, it removes RNA primers from the Okazaki fragments of lagging strand synthesis; and it defines the origin of replication for ColE1-type plasmids by specific cleavage of an RNA preprimer
Atp-dependent dna helicase recg; Plays a critical role in recombination and DNA repair. Helps process Holliday junction intermediates to mature products by catalyzing branch migration. Has a DNA unwinding activity characteristic of a DNA helicase with 3'- to 5'- polarity. Unwinds branched duplex DNA (Y-DNA). Has a role in constitutive stable DNA replication (cSDR) and R-loop formation. Is genetically synergistic to RadA and RuvABC
Ssdna translocase and dsdna helicase - dna helicase ii; A helicase with DNA-dependent ATPase activity . Unwinds DNA duplexes with 3' to 5' polarity with respect to the bound strand. Initiates unwinding more efficiently from a nicked substrate than ds duplex DNA . Involved in the post-incision events of nucleotide excision repair and methyl-directed mismatch repair, and probably also in repair of alkylated DNA (Probable)

Inner membrane protein - inhibits the rcs signaling pathway; Putative membrane protein IgaA homolog; Putative dehydrogenase
Dna recombination/repair protein reca; Required for homologous recombination and the bypass of mutagenic DNA lesions by the SOS response. Catalyzes ATP-driven homologous pairing and strand exchange of DNA molecules necessary for DNA recombinational repair. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of ATP in the presence of single-stranded DNA, the ATP-dependent uptake of single- stranded DNA by duplex DNA, and the ATP-dependent hybridization of homologous single-stranded DNAs. The SOS response controls an apoptotic-like death (ALD) induced (in the absence of the mazE-mazF toxin-antitoxin module) in res [...]
Two-component system, ompr family, sensor histidine kinase rstb; Member of the two-component regulatory system RstB/RstA. RstB functions as a membrane-associated protein kinase that phosphorylates RstA (Probable)
Primosomal replication protein n''; PriA recognizes a specific hairpin sequence on bacteriophage phi X174 ssDNA. This structure is then recognized and bound by proteins PriB and PriC. Formation of the primosome proceeds with the subsequent actions of DnaB, DnaC, DnaT and primase
