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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
mntPProbable manganese efflux pump MntP; Probably functions as a manganese efflux pump; Belongs to the MntP (TC 9.B.29) family (188 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Transcriptional regulator MntR; In the presence of manganese, represses expression of mntH and mntS. Up-regulates expression of mntP
Small protein MntS; Required for repression of mntH by MntR. May function as a chaperone that makes manganese more available by delivering it to the necessary cellular locations when manganese is limiting
Divalent metal cation transporter MntH; H(+)-stimulated, divalent metal cation uptake system. Involved in manganese and iron uptake. Can also transport cadmium, cobalt, zinc and to a lesser extent nickel and copper. Involved in response to reactive oxygen
2-(5''-triphosphoribosyl)-3'-dephosphocoenzyme-A synthase; Catalyzes the formation of 2-(5''-triphosphoribosyl)-3'- dephosphocoenzyme-A, the precursor of the prosthetic group of the holo-acyl carrier protein (gamma chain) of citrate lyase, from ATP and dephospho-CoA
Mechanosensitive channel MscK; Mechanosensitive channel that opens in response to membrane tension and specific ionic conditions. Requires high concentrations of external K(+), NH(4)(+), Rb(+) or Cs(+) to gate. May participate in the regulation of osmotic pressure changes within the cell, although it does not appear to have a major role in osmolarity regulation. Forms an ion channel of 1.0 nanosiemens conductance. The channel can remain active for between 30 seconds and over 3 minutes; it does not desensitize upon extended pressure. Its activity is masked in wild-type cells by the MscS [...]
PTS system mannose-specific EIID component; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. The enzyme II ManXYZ PTS system is involved in mannose transport. Also functions as a receptor for bacterial chemotaxis and is required for infection of the cell by bacteriophage lambda where it most likely functions as a pore for penetration of lambda DNA
Uncharacterized lipoprotein YgeR; Anticodon: CCC; Belongs to the peptidase M23B family
Ethanolamine utilization protein EutA; May protect the EutBC lyase from inhibition
Small-conductance mechanosensitive channel; Mechanosensitive channel that participates in the regulation of osmotic pressure changes within the cell, opening in response to stretch forces in the membrane lipid bilayer, without the need for other proteins. Contributes to normal resistance to hypoosmotic shock. Forms an ion channel of 1.0 nanosiemens conductance with a slight preference for anions. The channel is sensitive to voltage; as the membrane is depolarized, less tension is required to open the channel and vice versa. The channel is characterized by short bursts of activity that [...]
