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

ftnAFerritin iron storage protein (cytoplasmic); Iron-storage protein (165 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Bacterioferritin, iron storage and detoxification protein; Iron-storage protein, whose ferroxidase center binds Fe(2+) ions, oxidizes them by dioxygen to Fe(3+), and participates in the subsequent Fe(3+) oxide mineral core formation within the central cavity of the protein complex. The mineralized iron core can contain as many as 2700 iron atoms/24-meric molecule
Bacterioferritin-associated ferredoxin; Seems to associate with BFR; could be a general redox and/or regulatory component participating in the iron storage mobilization functions of BFR. Could participate in the release or the delivery of iron from/to bacterioferritin (or other iron complexes)
Superoxide dismutase, fe-mn family; Destroys superoxide anion radicals which are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems
Free methionine-(r)-sulfoxide reductase; Catalyzes the reversible oxidation-reduction of the R- enantiomer of free methionine sulfoxide to methionine. Specific for free L-methionine-(R)-S-oxide
annotation not available
Inner membrane protein YebZ; Putative resistance protein; Protein involved in response to drug
annotation not available
Aconitate hydratase 1; Catalyzes the reversible isomerization of citrate to isocitrate via cis-aconitate. The apo form of AcnA functions as a RNA- binding regulatory protein which plays a role as a maintenance or survival enzyme during nutritional or oxidative stress. During oxidative stress inactive AcnA apo-enzyme without iron sulfur clusters binds the acnA mRNA 3' UTRs (untranslated regions), stabilizes acnA mRNA and increases AcnA synthesis, thus mediating a post- transcriptional positive autoregulatory switch. AcnA also enhances the stability of the sodA transcript
Fumarate hydratase (fumarase a), aerobic class i; Catalyzes the reversible hydration of fumarate to (S)-malate. Functions as an aerobic enzyme in the direction of malate formation as part of the citric acid cycle. Accounts for about 80% of the fumarase activity when the bacteria grow aerobically. To a lesser extent, also displays D-tartrate dehydratase activity in vitro, but is not able to convert (R)-malate, L-tartrate or meso-tartrate. Can also catalyze the isomerization of enol- to keto-oxaloacetate
Lysr family transcriptional regulator, hydrogen peroxide-inducible genes activator; Hydrogen peroxide sensor. Activates the expression of a regulon of hydrogen peroxide-inducible genes such as katG, gor, ahpC, ahpF, oxyS (a regulatory RNA), dps, fur and grxA. OxyR expression is negatively autoregulated by binding to a 43 bp region upstream of its own coding sequence. OxyR is inactivated by reduction of its essential disulfide bond by the product of GrxA, itself positively regulated by OxyR. Has also a positive regulatory effect on the production of surface proteins that control the col [...]
