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
yegDBelongs to the heat shock protein 70 family (450 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Required for maximal bacterial cellulose synthesis.
Probable chaperone. Has ATPase activity. Not stimulated by DnaJ
Uncharacterized J domain-containing protein DjlB; Putative enzyme of polynucleotide modification; Protein involved in protein folding
Participates actively in the response to hyperosmotic and heat shock by preventing the aggregation of stress-denatured proteins, in association with DnaK and GrpE. It is the nucleotide exchange factor for DnaK and may function as a thermosensor. Unfolded proteins bind initially to DnaJ; upon interaction with the DnaJ-bound protein, DnaK hydrolyzes its bound ATP, resulting in the formation of a stable complex. GrpE releases ADP from DnaK; ATP binding to DnaK triggers the release of the substrate protein, thus completing the reaction cycle. Several rounds of ATP-dependent interactions be [...]
Regulatory DnaK co-chaperone. Direct interaction between DnaK and DjlA is needed for the induction of the wcaABCDE operon, involved in the synthesis of a colanic acid polysaccharide capsule, possibly through activation of the RcsB/RcsC phosphotransfer signaling pathway. The colanic acid capsule may help the bacterium survive conditions outside the host. ECO:0000269|PubMed:11106641, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11758943,
DNA-binding protein that preferentially recognizes a curved DNA sequence. It is probably a functional analog of DnaJ; displays overlapping activities with DnaJ, but functions under different conditions, probably acting as a molecular chaperone in an adaptive response to environmental stresses other than heat shock. Lacks autonomous chaperone activity; binds native substrates and targets them for recognition by DnaK. Its activity is inhibited by the binding of CbpM
