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

sbmCDna 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 [...] (157 aa)

csgA
Curlin subunit, amyloid curli fibers, cryptic; Curlin is the structural subunit of the curli fimbriae. Curli are coiled surface structures that assemble preferentially at growth temperatures below 37 degrees Celsius. Curli can bind to fibronectin

gyrB
DNA gyrase negatively supercoils closed circular double- stranded DNA in an ATP-dependent manner to maintain chromosomes in an underwound state This makes better substrates for topoisomerase 4 (ParC and ParE) which is the main enzyme that unlinks newly replicated chromosomes in E.coli . Gyrase catalyzes the interconversion of other topological isomers of double-stranded DNA rings, including catenanes . Relaxes negatively supercoiled DNA in an ATP-independent manner . E.coli gyrase has higher supercoiling activity than other characterized bacterial gyrases; at comparable concentrations [...]

gyrA
A type II topoisomerase that negatively supercoils closed circular double-stranded (ds) DNA in an ATP-dependent manner to maintain chromosomes in an underwound state This makes better substrates for topoisomerase IV (ParC and ParE) which is the main enzyme that unlinks newly replicated chromosomes in E.coli . Gyrase catalyzes the interconversion of other topological isomers of dsDNA rings, including catenanes . Relaxes negatively supercoiled DNA in an ATP-independent manner . E.coli gyrase has higher supercoiling activity than many other bacterial gyrases; at comparable concentrations [...]

umuD
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
