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
yegWUncharacterized HTH-type transcriptional regulator YegW; Putative transcriptional regulator; Protein involved in transcription repressor activity and transcription (248 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Putative transcriptional regulator for sulphoquinovose utilization; Involved in the regulation of the sulfoquinovose operon . Represses the expression of the yihUTS operon and of the yihV and csqR genes. Binds DNA inside the spacer between the bidirectional transcription units comprising the yihUTS operon and the yihV gene, and upstream the csqR gene itself
Putative carbamoyltransferase ygew; Putative carbamoyltransferase. No activity can be detected with allantoin or 25 other related compounds, including 20 naturally occurring amino acids, N-acetyl-L-ornithine, N-succinyl-L-ornithine, L- ornithine, oxamate, beta-alanine and putrescine
annotation not available
Tetr/acrr family transcriptional regulator, regulator of biofilm formation and stress response; Regulates the expression of a number of genes involved in biofilm formation and stress response. Target genes include six stress- response transcriptional regulators: csgD, which is a master regulator of biofilm formation, appY, sxy, ycgF, fimB and rcdA itself. This indicates that a large number of genes must be regulated indirectly via these transcriptional regulators. Acts by binding to the upstream region of its target genes
Uncharacterized sugar kinase YegV; Putative enzyme; Not classified; Belongs to the carbohydrate kinase PfkB family
Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 25 family
Adp-ribosylglycohydrolase family protein; Belongs to the ADP-ribosylglycohydrolase family
Bifunctional hydroxymethylpyrimidine kinase/phosphomethylpyrimidine kinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of hydroxymethylpyrimidine phosphate (HMP-P) to HMP-PP, and of HMP to HMP-P. Shows no activity with pyridoxal, pyridoxamine or pyridoxine
Hydroxyethylthiazole kinase; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of the hydroxyl group of 4- methyl-5-beta-hydroxyethylthiazole (THZ)
Activator of asnA transcription; autogenous regulator of its own transcription; and repressor of the expression of gidA at a post- transcriptional level
