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

lpxMMyristoyl-acyl carrier protein (acp)-dependent acyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of myristate from myristoyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) to Kdo(2)-(lauroyl)-lipid IV(A) to form Kdo(2)- lipid A. Can probably also catalyze the transfer of myristate to Kdo(2)-(palmitoleoyl)-lipid IV(A) to form the cold-adapted Kdo(2)-lipid A. In vitro, can acylate Kdo(2)-lipid IV(A), but acylation of (KDO)2- (lauroyl)-lipid IV(A) is about 100 times faster. In vitro, can use lauroyl-ACP but displays a slight kinetic preference for myristoyl-ACP (323 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
pagP
Phospholipid:lipid a palmitoyltransferase; Transfers a palmitate residue from the sn-1 position of a phospholipid to the N-linked hydroxymyristate on the proximal unit of lipid A or its precursors. Phosphatidylglycerol (PtdGro), phosphatidylethanolamine (PtdEtn), phosphatidylserine (PtdSer) and phosphatidic acid (Ptd-OH) are all effective acyl donors
     
 0.987
eptA
Lipid a ethanolaminephosphotransferase; Catalyzes the addition of a phosphoethanolamine moiety to the lipid A. The phosphoethanolamine modification is required for resistance to polymyxin
     
 0.959
lpxL
Lauryl-acyl carrier protein (acp)-dependent acyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of laurate from lauroyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) to Kdo(2)-lipid IV(A) to form Kdo(2)-(lauroyl)-lipid IV(A). Has 10 fold selectivity for lauroyl-ACP over myristoyl-ACP. In vitro, can also catalyze a slow second acylation reaction leading to the formation of Kdo(2)-(dilauroyl)-lipid IV(A)
 
 
0.954
lpxP
Palmitoleoyl-acyl carrier protein (acp)-dependent acyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of palmitoleate from palmitoleoyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) to Kdo(2)-lipid IV(A) to form Kdo(2)- (palmitoleoyl)-lipid IV(A). Required for the biosynthesis of a distinct molecular species of lipid A, which is present only in cells grown at low temperatures. It may confer a selective advantage to cells growing at lower temperatures by making the outer membrane a more effective barrier to harmful chemicals
 
  
0.949
eptB
Kdo phosphoethanolamine transferase, ca(2+)-inducible; Catalyzes the addition of a phosphoethanolamine (pEtN) moiety to the outer 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonic acid (Kdo) residue of a Kdo(2)-lipid A. Phosphatidylethanolamines with one unsaturated acyl group functions as pEtN donors and the reaction releases diacylglycerol
     
 0.946
lpxB
tetraacyldisaccharide-1-P synthase; Condensation of UDP-2,3-diacylglucosamine and 2,3- diacylglucosamine-1-phosphate to form lipid A disaccharide, a precursor of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell
 
 
 0.941
arnT
Lipid iva 4-amino-4-deoxy-l-arabinosyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of the L-Ara4N moiety of the glycolipid undecaprenyl phosphate-alpha-L-Ara4N to lipid A. The modified arabinose is attached to lipid A and is required for resistance to polymyxin and cationic antimicrobial peptides
   
 
 0.940
lpxT
Kdo2-lipid A phosphotransferase; Involved in the modification of the lipid A domain of lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Transfers a phosphate group from undecaprenyl pyrophosphate (C55-PP) to lipid A to form lipid A 1- diphosphate. Contributes to the recycling of undecaprenyl phosphate (C55-P) . In vitro, has low undecaprenyl-diphosphate phosphatase activity
   
 
 0.933
waaA
3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonic-acid transferase (KDO transferase); Involved in lipopolysaccharide (LPS) biosynthesis. Catalyzes the transfer of two 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonate (Kdo) residues from CMP-Kdo to lipid IV(A), the tetraacyldisaccharide-1,4'-bisphosphate precursor of lipid A
 
 
 0.932
lpxD
UDP-3-O-[3-hydroxymyristoyl] glucosamine N-acyltransferase; Catalyzes the N-acylation of UDP-3-O- (hydroxytetradecanoyl)glucosamine using 3-hydroxytetradecanoyl-ACP as the acyl donor. Is involved in the biosynthesis of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell. Prefers (3R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoyl-ACP over (3R)-3-hydroxyhexadecanoyl-ACP as the acyl donor in vitro, which is consistent with the structure of E.coli lipid A that contains over 95% (R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoate at the 2 and 2' positions
