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

yebGDna damage-inducible protein regulated by lexa; Uncharacterized protein YebG; Protein involved in DNA repair and SOS response (96 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Dna-damage-inducible protein i; Involved in SOS regulation. Inhibits RecA by preventing RecA to bind ssDNA. Can displace ssDNA from RecA
annotation not available
Dna repair protein recn (recombination protein n); May be involved in recombinational repair of damaged DNA
Dna-binding transcriptional repressor lexa; Represses a number of genes involved in the response to DNA damage (SOS response), including recA and lexA. Binds to the 16 bp palindromic sequence 5'-CTGTATATATATACAG-3'. In the presence of single- stranded DNA, RecA interacts with LexA causing an autocatalytic cleavage which disrupts the DNA-binding part of LexA, leading to derepression of the SOS regulon and eventually DNA repair. Implicated in hydroxy radical-mediated cell death induced by hydroxyurea treatment .The SOS response controls an apoptotic-like death (ALD) induced (in the absen [...]
Dna recombination/repair protein reca; Required for homologous recombination and the bypass of mutagenic DNA lesions by the SOS response. Catalyzes ATP-driven homologous pairing and strand exchange of DNA molecules necessary for DNA recombinational repair. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of ATP in the presence of single-stranded DNA, the ATP-dependent uptake of single- stranded DNA by duplex DNA, and the ATP-dependent hybridization of homologous single-stranded DNAs. The SOS response controls an apoptotic-like death (ALD) induced (in the absence of the mazE-mazF toxin-antitoxin module) in res [...]
Dna-damage-inducible protein d; Protein involved in DNA repair
Component of the SOS system and an inhibitor of cell division. Accumulation of SulA causes rapid cessation of cell division and the appearance of long, non-septate filaments. In the presence of GTP, binds a polymerization-competent form of FtsZ in a 1:1 ratio, thus inhibiting FtsZ polymerization and therefore preventing it from participating in the assembly of the Z ring. This mechanism prevents the premature segregation of damaged DNA to daughter cells during cell division. The effect of overexpression of SulA is neutralized by antitoxin CbeA (yeeU)
Involved in UV protection and mutation. Poorly processive, error-prone DNA polymerase involved in translesion repair . Essential for induced (or SOS) mutagenesis. Able to replicate DNA across DNA lesions (thymine photodimers and abasic sites, called translesion synthesis) in the presence of activated RecA; efficiency is maximal in the presence of the beta sliding-clamp and clamp-loading complex of DNA polymerase III plus single-stranded binding protein (SSB) . RecA and to a lesser extent the beta clamp-complex may target Pol V to replication complexes stalled at DNA template lesions
Dna gyrase inhibitor; Inhibits the supercoiling activity of DNA gyrase. Acts by inhibiting DNA gyrase at an early step, prior to (or at the step of) binding of DNA by the gyrase. It protects cells against toxins that target DNA gyrase, by inhibiting activity of these toxins and reducing the formation of lethal double-strand breaks in the cell. Protects cells against the natural plasmid-encoded toxins microcin B17 (MccB17) and CcdB, and synthetic quinolones. Can also protect cells against alkylating agents that act independently of DNA gyrase, suggesting a more general role in protectin [...]
