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

mepHMurein dd-endopeptidase, space-maker hydrolase; A murein DD-endopeptidase with specificity for D-Ala-meso- diaminopimelic acid (mDAP) cross-links. Its role is probably to cleave D-Ala-mDAP cross-links to allow insertion of new glycans and thus cell wall expansion. Functionally redundant with MepM and MepH. Partially suppresses an mepS disruption mutant (271 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
mepM
Murein dd-endopeptidase, space-maker hydrolase, septation protein; A murein DD-endopeptidase with specificity for D-Ala-meso- diaminopimelic acid (mDAP) cross-links. Its role is probably to cleave D-Ala-mDAP cross-links to allow insertion of new glycans and thus cell wall expansion. Functionally redundant with MepM and MepH. Partially suppresses an mepS disruption mutant

nlpI
Lipoprotein involved in osmotic sensitivity and filamentation; May be involved in cell division. May play a role in bacterial septation or regulation of cell wall degradation during cell division. Negatively controls the production of extracellular DNA (eDNA)
      
 0.790
mepA
Peptidoglycan dd-endopeptidase/peptidoglycan ld-endopeptidase; Murein endopeptidase that cleaves the D-alanyl-meso-2,6- diamino-pimelyl amide bond that connects peptidoglycan strands. Likely plays a role in the removal of murein from the sacculus and could also play a role in the integration of nascent murein strands into the sacculus
      
 0.601
tldD
Metalloprotease tldd; Metalloprotease involved in CcdA degradation. Suppresses the inhibitory activity of the carbon storage regulator (CsrA)
      
 0.600
grxD
Monothiol glutaredoxin involved in the biogenesis of iron- sulfur clusters
     
 0.568
sodB
Superoxide dismutase, fe-mn family; Destroys superoxide anion radicals which are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems
     
 0.566
nlpA
D-methionine transport system substrate-binding protein; Lipoprotein-28
      
 0.561
lhr
Atp-dependent helicase lhr and lhr-like helicase; Belongs to the helicase family
     
 0.511
mepS
Peptidoglycan dd-endopeptidase/peptidoglycan ld-carboxypeptidase; A murein DD-endopeptidase with specificity for D-Ala-meso- diaminopimelic acid (mDAP) cross-links. Its role is probably to cleave D-Ala-mDAP cross-links to allow insertion of new glycans and thus cell wall expansion. Functionally redundant with MepM and MepH. Also has weak LD-carboxypeptidase activity on L-mDAP-D-Ala peptide bonds. Partially suppresses a prc disruption mutant
 
  
0.499
pbpG
Serine-type d-ala-d-ala endopeptidase (penicillin-binding protein 7); Cell wall formation. May play a specialized role in remodeling the cell wall. Specifically hydrolyzes the DD- diaminopimelate-alanine bonds in high-molecular-mass murein sacculi
