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

grxDMonothiol glutaredoxin involved in the biogenesis of iron- sulfur clusters (115 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
nfuA
Fe/s biogenesis protein, putative scaffold/chaperone protein; Involved in iron-sulfur cluster biogenesis under severe conditions such as iron starvation or oxidative stress. Binds a 4Fe-4S cluster, can transfer this cluster to apoproteins, and thereby intervenes in the maturation of Fe/S proteins. Could also act as a scaffold/chaperone for damaged Fe/S proteins. Required for E.coli to sustain oxidative stress and iron starvation. Also necessary for the use of extracellular DNA as the sole source of carbon and energy

bolA
Bola family transcriptional regulator, general stress-responsive regulator; Transcriptional regulator that plays an important role in general stress response. Has many effects on cell morphology, cell growth and cell division. Acts by regulating the transcription of many genes, including dacA (PBP-5), dacC (PBP-6), ampC and mreB. Probably involved in the coordination of genes that adapt the cell physiology in order to enhance cell adaptation and survival under stress conditions. Essential for normal cell morphology in stationary phase and under conditions of starvation Also regulates a [...]
 
 
 0.992
grxA
Glutaredoxin 1, redox coenzyme for ribonucleotide reductase (rnr1a); The disulfide bond functions as an electron carrier in the glutathione-dependent synthesis of deoxyribonucleotides by the enzyme ribonucleotide reductase. In addition, it is also involved in reducing some disulfide bonds in a coupled system with glutathione reductase
  
 
 0.930
hscB
Hsca co-chaperone, j domain-containing protein hsc56; Co-chaperone involved in the maturation of iron-sulfur cluster-containing proteins. Seems to help targeting proteins to be folded toward HscA
   
 0.918
grxC
Glutaredoxin 3; The disulfide bond functions as an electron carrier in the glutathione-dependent synthesis of deoxyribonucleotides by the enzyme ribonucleotide reductase. In addition, it is also involved in reducing some disulfide bonds in a coupled system with glutathione reductase
  
 
 0.918
iscU
Nitrogen fixation protein nifu and related proteins; A scaffold on which IscS assembles Fe-S clusters. Exists as 2 interconverting forms, a structured (S) and disordered (D) form. The D- state is the preferred substrate for IscS. Converts to the S-state when an Fe-S cluster is assembled, which helps it dissociate from IscS to transfer the Fe-S to an acceptor. It is likely that Fe-S cluster coordination is flexible as the role of this complex is to build and then hand off Fe-S clusters
  
 
 0.907
ibaG
Acid stress protein ibag; Involved in cell resistance against acid stress
 
   
 0.873
sufA
annotation not available
 
 0.839
iscA
Iron-sulfur cluster insertion protein isca; Is able to transfer iron-sulfur clusters to apo-ferredoxin. Multiple cycles of [2Fe2S] cluster formation and transfer are observed, suggesting that IscA acts catalytically. Recruits intracellular free iron so as to provide iron for the assembly of transient iron-sulfur cluster in IscU in the presence of IscS, L-cysteine and the thioredoxin reductase system TrxA/TrxB
 
 0.826
erpA
Iron-sulfur cluster insertion protein erpa; Probably involved in the insertion of Fe-S clusters into apoproteins in vivo including IspG and/or IspH. Essential for growth under aerobic conditions and for anaerobic respiration but not for fermentation. In vitro it binds Fe-S clusters and transfers them to apo-IspG, which is involved in quinone biosynthesis among many other cell components. Experiments indicate that it is probably also involved in the insertion of other Fe-S clusters than IspG/IspH
