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

Gene Fusion
cutCCopper homeostasis protein; Participates in the control of copper homeostasis (248 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Putative metal-binding enzyme yecm; To H.influenzae HI_1582/HI_1581
Putative yeawx dioxygenase alpha subunit; Converts carnitine to trimethylamine and malic semialdehyde. Can also use gamma-butyrobetaine, choline and betaine as substrates
N-acetylglucosamine-6-phosphate deacetylase; Involved in the first step in the biosynthesis of amino- sugar-nucleotides. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of the N-acetyl group of N- acetylglucosamine-6-phosphate (GlcNAc-6-P) to yield glucosamine 6- phosphate and acetate. In vitro, can also hydrolyze substrate analogs such as N-thioacetyl-D-glucosamine-6-phosphate, N-trifluoroacetyl-D- glucosamine-6-phosphate, N-acetyl-D-glucosamine-6-sulfate, N-acetyl-D- galactosamine-6-phosphate, and N-formyl-D-glucosamine-6-phosphate
Divalent-cation tolerance protein, copper sensitivity; Involved in resistance toward heavy metals
Acts as an auxiliary protein in the Cpx two-component envelope stress response system, helping modulate the Cpx response systems response to some inducers . Binds the periplasmic domain of sensor histidine kinase CpxA, inhibiting induction of the Cpx envelope stress response in the absence of inducer; overexpression decreases Cpx pathway activity . Some periplasmic stimulii (shown for P pili subunit PapE and probably 0.3 M NaCl) increase CpxP's susceptibility to DegP, leading to CpxP degradation, inducing the Cpx pathway . Aids in combating extracytoplasmic protein-mediated toxicity Ov [...]
Glucosamine-6-phosphate deaminase; Catalyzes the reversible isomerization-deamination of glucosamine 6-phosphate (GlcN6P) to form fructose 6-phosphate (Fru6P) and ammonium ion
Modulates cellular lipopolysaccharide (LPS) levels by regulating LpxC, which is involved in lipid A biosynthesis. May act by modulating the proteolytic activity of FtsH towards LpxC. May also coordinate assembly of proteins involved in LPS synthesis at the plasma membrane
Thiol:disulfide interchange protein and activator of dsbc; Required to facilitate the formation of correct disulfide bonds in some periplasmic proteins and for the assembly of the periplasmic c-type cytochromes. Acts by transferring electrons from cytoplasmic thioredoxin to the periplasm, thereby maintaining the active site of DsbC, DsbE and DsbG in a reduced state. This transfer involves a cascade of disulfide bond formation and reduction steps
Lipoprotein involved with copper homeostasis and adhesion; Involved in copper homeostasis, could be involved in both copper efflux and the delivery of copper to copper-dependent enzymes . Required for efficient binding of stationary phase cells to hydrophobic surfaces, part of the process of biofilm formation . Functions during envelope stress responses; when overproduced induces degP through the activation of the two-component envelope stress response system CpxA/CpxR DegP induction seems to require membrane anchoring of this protein . Structural changes and/or interaction of the CXXC [...]
Arginine--tRNA ligase; Arginine tRNA synthetase; Protein involved in tRNA aminoacylation for protein translation
