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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

sufCProbable ATP-dependent transporter SufC; Has low ATPase activity. The SufBCD complex acts synergistically with SufE to stimulate the cysteine desulfurase activity of SufS. The SufBCD complex contributes to the assembly or repair of oxygen-labile iron-sulfur clusters under oxidative stress. May facilitate iron uptake from extracellular iron chelators under iron limitation (248 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
sufD
FeS cluster assembly protein SufD; The SufBCD complex acts synergistically with SufE to stimulate the cysteine desulfurase activity of SufS. The SufBCD complex contributes to the assembly or repair of oxygen-labile iron-sulfur clusters under oxidative stress. May facilitate iron uptake from extracellular iron chelators under iron limitation. Required for the stability of the FhuF protein

sufB
FeS cluster assembly protein SufB; The SufBCD complex acts synergistically with SufE to stimulate the cysteine desulfurase activity of SufS. The SufBCD complex contributes to the assembly or repair of oxygen-labile iron-sulfur clusters under oxidative stress. May facilitate iron uptake from extracellular iron chelators under iron limitation

sufE
Cysteine desulfuration protein SufE; Participates in cysteine desulfuration mediated by SufS. Cysteine desulfuration mobilizes sulfur from L-cysteine to yield L-alanine and constitutes an essential step in sulfur metabolism for biosynthesis of a variety of sulfur-containing biomolecules. Functions as a sulfur acceptor for SufS, by mediating the direct transfer of the sulfur atom from the S-sulfanylcysteine of SufS, an intermediate product of cysteine desulfuration process. Together with the SufBCD complex, it thereby enhances up to 50- fold, the cysteine desulfurase activity of SufS. C [...]

sufS
Cysteine desulfurase; Cysteine desulfurases mobilize the sulfur from L- cysteine to yield L-alanine, an essential step in sulfur metabolism for biosynthesis of a variety of sulfur-containing biomolecules. Component of the suf operon, which is activated and required under specific conditions such as oxidative stress and iron limitation. Acts as a potent selenocysteine lyase in vitro, that mobilizes selenium from L-selenocysteine. Selenocysteine lyase activity is however unsure in vivo; Belongs to the class-V pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. Csd subfamily

csdA
Cysteine desulfurase CsdA; Catalyzes the removal of elemental sulfur and selenium atoms from L-cysteine, L-cystine, L-selenocysteine, and L- selenocystine to produce L-alanine, and transiently retains the released sulfur atom on a cysteine residue, in the form of a persulfide. Can also desulfinate L-cysteine sulfinate, which is the best substrate of the enzyme. Functions as a selenium delivery protein in the pathway for the biosynthesis of selenophosphate. Seems to participate in Fe/S biogenesis by recruiting the SufBCD- SufE proteins. Transfers sulfur to CsdE that increases the cystei [...]

iscU
Iron-sulfur cluster assembly scaffold protein IscU; 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; Belongs to the NifU family

fdx
2Fe-2S ferredoxin; Ferredoxin are iron-sulfur proteins that transfer electrons in a wide variety of metabolic reactions. Although the function of this ferredoxin is unknown it is probable that it has a role as a cellular electron transfer protein. Involved in the in vivo assembly of the Fe-S clusters in a wide variety of iron- sulfur proteins
   
  
 0.783
iscA
Iron-binding 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; Belongs to the HesB/IscA family
  
 
 0.781
entB
Enterobactin synthase component B; Involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin (enterochelin), which is a macrocyclic trimeric lactone of N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-serine. The serine trilactone serves as a scaffolding for the three catechol functionalities that provide hexadentate coordination for the tightly ligated iron(2+) atoms. EntB is a bifunctional protein that serves as an isochorismate lyase and an aryl carrier protein (ArCP). Catalyzes the conversion of isochorismate to 2,3-dihydro-2,3- dihydroxybenzoate (2,3-diDHB), the precursor of 2,3- dihydroxybenzoate (DH [...]
