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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
ugdUDP-glucose 6-dehydrogenase; Protein involved in cell surface antigen activity, host-interacting, colanic acid biosynthetic process and response to desiccation (388 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
UTP--glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase; May play a role in stationary phase survival; Belongs to the UDPGP type 2 family
Bifunctional polymyxin resistance protein ArnA; Bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of UDP-glucuronic acid (UDP-GlcUA) to UDP-4-keto- arabinose (UDP-Ara4O) and the addition of a formyl group to UDP-4- amino-4-deoxy-L-arabinose (UDP-L-Ara4N) to form UDP-L-4-formamido- arabinose (UDP-L-Ara4FN). The modified arabinose is attached to lipid A and is required for resistance to polymyxin and cationic antimicrobial peptides; In the N-terminal section; belongs to the Fmt family. UDP-L-Ara4N formyltransferase subfamily
Mannose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase; Involved in the biosynthesis of the capsular polysaccharide colanic acid
UDP-glucose 4-epimerase; Involved in the metabolism of galactose. Catalyzes the conversion of UDP-galactose (UDP-Gal) to UDP-glucose (UDP-Glc) through a mechanism involving the transient reduction of NAD. It is only active on UDP-galactose and UDP-glucose
UTP--glucose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase; Protein involved in nucleotide-sugar biosynthetic process
Galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase; Protein involved in cell surface antigen activity, host-interacting, galactose metabolic process, colanic acid biosynthetic process, carbohydrate catabolic process and response to desiccation; Belongs to the galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase type 1 family
UDP-4-amino-4-deoxy-L-arabinose--oxoglutarate aminotransferase; Catalyzes the conversion of UDP-4-keto-arabinose (UDP- Ara4O) to UDP-4-amino-4-deoxy-L-arabinose (UDP-L-Ara4N). The modified arabinose is attached to lipid A and is required for resistance to polymyxin and cationic antimicrobial peptides
Transcriptional regulatory protein BasR; Member of the two-component regulatory system BasS/BasR. BasR induces the transcription of the ugd, ais, arnBCADTEF and eptA-basRS loci, all involved in resistance to polymyxin (By similarity)
dTDP-4-dehydrorhamnose 3,5-epimerase; Catalyzes the epimerization of the C3' and C5'positions of dTDP-6-deoxy-D-xylo-4-hexulose, forming dTDP-6-deoxy-L-lyxo-4- hexulose; Belongs to the dTDP-4-dehydrorhamnose 3,5-epimerase family
Signal transduction protein PmrD; Interacts with phosphorylated BasR protein to mediate transcriptional induction of BasR-activated genes to induce polymyxin resistance in some natural isolates
