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

slyBOuter membrane lipoprotein slyb; Belongs to the Pcp/SlyB lipoprotein family (155 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
yqjD
Ribosome- and membrane-associated duf883 domain-containing protein yqjd; Upon overexpression inhibits growth
  
   
 0.744
mgtA
Regulatory leader peptide for mgta; Mediates magnesium influx to the cytosol
      
 0.732
ompX
Membrane; Outer membrane constituents; Belongs to the Ail/OmpX/PagC/Lom family

phoP
Response regulator in two-component regulatory system with phoq; Member of the two-component regulatory system PhoP/PhoQ involved in adaptation to low Mg(2+) environments and the control of acid resistance genes. In low periplasmic Mg(2+), PhoQ phosphorylates PhoP, resulting in the expression of PhoP-activated genes (PAG) and repression of PhoP-repressed genes (PRG). In high periplasmic Mg(2+), PhoQ dephosphorylates phospho-PhoP, resulting in the repression of PAG and may lead to expression of some PRG (By similarity). Mediates magnesium influx to the cytosol by activation of MgtA. Pro [...]

gloA
Glyoxalase i, ni-dependent; Catalyzes the isomerization of the hemithioacetal formed spontaneously from methylglyoxal and glutathione, to S- lactoylglutathione, which is then hydrolyzed by a type II glyoxalase (GloB or GloC). Is involved in methylglyoxal (MG) detoxification (Probable). Involved in resistance to hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which is the active component of household bleach and a powerful antimicrobial during the innate immune response

elaB
Putative membrane-anchored duf883 family ribosome-binding protein; Belongs to the ElaB/YgaM/YqjD family
  
   
 0.631
mgrB
Regulatory peptide for phopq, feedback inhibition; Represses PhoP/PhoQ signaling, possibly by binding to the periplasmic domain of PhoQ, altering its activity and that of downstream effector PhoP. PhoP-regulated transcription is redox- sensitive, being activated when the periplasm becomes more reducing (deletion of dsbA/dsbB, treatment with dithiothreitol). MgrB acts between DsbA/DsbB and PhoP/PhoQ in this pathway; the 2 periplasmic Cys residues of MgrB are required for its action on PhoQ, and thus PhoP

ompA
With TolR probably plays a role in maintaining the position of the peptidoglycan cell wall in the periplasm (Probable). Plays a role in resistance to environmental stress, and a role in outer membrane functionality and cell shape . Non-covalently binds peptidoglycan (Probable). Acts as a porin with low permeability that allows slow penetration of small solutes . A very abundant protein, there can be up to 210,000 OmpA molecules per cell . Reconstitution in unilamellar lipid vesicles shows only about 3% of the protein is in an open conformation, which allows diffusion of L-arabinose at [...]

slyA
Marr family transcriptional regulator, transcriptional regulator for hemolysin; Transcription regulator that can specifically activate or repress expression of target genes. Activates expression of genes such as molecular chaperones (groL, groS, dnaK, grpE, and cbpA), proteins involved in acid resistance (hdeA, hdeB, and gadA), the starvation lipoprotein slp, virulence protein hlyE/clyA. Represses expression of genes involved in the histidine biosynthetic pathway such as hisA, hisB, hisD, hisF and hisG. Required for the activation of virulence genes

phoQ
Sensory histidine kinase in two-component regulatory system with phop; Member of the two-component regulatory system PhoP/PhoQ involved in adaptation to low Mg(2+) environments and the control of acid resistance genes. In low periplasmic Mg(2+), PhoQ functions as a membrane-associated protein kinase that undergoes autophosphorylation and subsequently transfers the phosphate to PhoP, resulting in the expression of PhoP-activated genes (PAG) and repression of PhoP- repressed genes (PRG). In high periplasmic Mg(2+), acts as a protein phosphatase that dephosphorylates phospho-PhoP, resulti [...]
