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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
shiAMfs transporter, mhs family, shikimate and dehydroshikimate transport protein; Shikimate transporter; Pseudogene, glycosyltransferase homology (438 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Superoxide dismutase, fe-mn family; Destroys superoxide anion radicals which are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems
Amp nucleosidase; Catalyzes the hydrolysis of the N-glycosidic bond of AMP to form adenine and ribose 5-phosphate. Involved in regulation of AMP concentrations
Betaine/carnitine transporter, bcct family; Probable transporter whose substrate is unknown. Is not involved in aerobic D-malate transport
Rna-binding protein hfq; RNA chaperone that binds small regulatory RNA (sRNAs) and mRNAs to facilitate mRNA translational regulation in response to envelope stress, environmental stress and changes in metabolite concentrations. Involved in the regulation of stress responses mediated by the sigma factors RpoS, sigma-E and sigma-32 . Binds with high specificity to tRNAs . Binds sRNA antitoxin RalA . In vitro, stimulates synthesis of long tails by poly(A) polymerase I . Required for RNA phage Qbeta replication . Seems to play a role in persister cell formation; upon overexpression decreas [...]
Mfs transporter, dha1 family, l-arabinose/isopropyl-beta-d-thiogalactopyranoside export protein; Involved in the efflux of sugars. The physiological role may be the reduction of the intracellular concentration of toxic sugars or sugar metabolites. Transports L-arabinose and to a lesser extent IPTG. Seems to contribute to the control of the arabinose regulon
Not yet known. Postulated to participate in iron transport. Outer membrane receptor for colicins IA and IB
Serine o-acetyltransferase; Belongs to the transferase hexapeptide repeat family
3-deoxy-D-arabino-heptulosonate-7-phosphate synthase, phenylalanine repressible; Stereospecific condensation of phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) and D-erythrose-4-phosphate (E4P) giving rise to 3-deoxy-D-arabino- heptulosonate-7-phosphate (DAHP)
Glycine betaine abc transporter atp binding subunit yehx; Part of an ABC transporter complex involved in low-affinity glycine betaine uptake. Probably responsible for energy coupling to the transport system
Dehydroshikimate reductase, nad(p)-binding; Involved in the biosynthesis of the chorismate, which leads to the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids. Catalyzes the reversible NADPH linked reduction of 3-dehydroshikimate (DHSA) to yield shikimate (SA). It displays no activity in the presence of NAD
