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

mdtKMultidrug resistance protein, mate family; Multidrug efflux pump that probably functions as a Na(+)/drug antiporter. Confers resistance to many drugs such as fluoroquinolones (norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, enoxacin) and tetraphenylphosphonium ion (TPP) . Also to deoxycholate, doxorubicin, trimethoprim, chloramphenicol, fosfomycin, ethidium bromide and benzalkonium . Also able to export peptides; when overexpressed, allows cells deleted for multiple peptidases (pepA, pepB, pepD and pepN) to grow in the presence of dipeptides Ala-Gln or Gly-Tyr which otherwise inhibit growth . Cells overex [...] (457 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Abc-type tripartite efflux pump atp binding/membrane subunit; Part of the tripartite efflux system MacAB-TolC. MacB is a non-canonical ABC transporter that contains transmembrane domains (TMD), which form a pore in the inner membrane, and an ATP-binding domain (NBD), which is responsible for energy generation. When overexpressed, the system confers resistance against macrolides composed of 14- and 15-membered lactones but no or weak resistance against 16-membered ones. In addition, the system could also transport R-LPS or a similar glycolipid
Mfs transporter, dha1 family, multidrug/chloramphenicol efflux transport protein; Efflux pump driven by the proton motive force. Confers resistance to a broad spectrum of chemically unrelated drugs. Confers resistance to a diverse group of cationic or zwitterionic lipophilic compounds such as ethidium bromide, tetraphenylphosphonium, rhodamine, daunomycin, benzalkonium, rifampicin, tetracycline, puromycin, and to chemically unrelated, clinically important antibiotics such as chloramphenicol, erythromycin, and certain aminoglycosides and fluoroquinolones. Overexpression results in isopr [...]
Multidrug resistance protein, mate family; Belongs to the multi antimicrobial extrusion (MATE) (TC 2.A.66.1) family
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
Outer membrane channel, which is required for the function of several efflux systems such as AcrAB-TolC, AcrEF-TolC, EmrAB-TolC and MacAB-TolC. These systems are involved in export of antibiotics and other toxic compounds from the cell. TolC is also involved in import of colicin E1 into the cells
Mfs transporter, dha1 family, 2-module integral membrane pump emrd; Multidrug resistance pump that participates in a low energy shock adaptive response
Multidrug efflux pump rnd permease acrd; Participates in the efflux of aminoglycosides. Confers resistance to a variety of these substances
Multidrug efflux pump membrane fusion lipoprotein acra; AcrA-AcrB-AcrZ-TolC is a drug efflux protein complex with broad substrate specificity that uses the proton motive force to export substrates. This subunit may act as an adapter protein that links AcrB and TolC stably together. It is elongated in shape, being long enough to span the periplasm
Macrolide transporter membrane fusion protein (mfp) component; Part of the tripartite efflux system MacAB-TolC. MacA stimulates the ATPase activity of MacB by promoting the closed ATP- bound state of MacB, increases the capacity of MacB to bind macrolides such as erythromycin, and provides a physical link between MacB and TolC. When overexpressed, the system confers resistance against macrolides composed of 14- and 15-membered lactones but no or weak resistance against 16-membered ones. In addition, MacA binds tightly rough-core lipopolysaccharide (R-LPS), suggesting that the system co [...]
Mfs transporter, dha1 family, multidrug resistance protein; Confers resistance to norfloxacin and enoxacin
