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

cirANot yet known. Postulated to participate in iron transport. Outer membrane receptor for colicins IA and IB (663 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
entC
Involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin (macrocyclic trimeric lactone of N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-serine). Catalyzes the reversible conversion of chorismate to isochorismate. ECO:0000269|PubMed:2139795, ECO:0000269|PubMed:2536681,
 
  
 0.949
fhuE
Required for the uptake of Fe(3+) via coprogen, ferrioxamine B, and rhodotorulic acid
 
  
 0.949
tonB
Interacts with outer membrane receptor proteins that carry out high-affinity binding and energy dependent uptake into the periplasmic space of specific substrates such as cobalamin, and various iron compounds (such as iron dicitrate, enterochelin, aerobactin, etc.). In the absence of TonB these receptors bind their substrates but do not carry out active transport. TonB also interacts with some colicins and is involved in the energy-dependent, irreversible steps of bacteriophages phi 80 and T1 infection. It could act to transduce energy from the cytoplasmic membrane to specific energy-r [...]

entA
Involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin (enterochelin), which is a macrocyclic trimeric lactone of N-(2,3- dihydroxybenzoyl)-serine. Catalyzes the reversible NAD-dependent oxidation of the C3-hydroxyl group of 2,3-dihydro-2,3-dihydroxybenzoate (2,3-diDHB), producing the transient intermediate 2-hydroxy-3-oxo-4,6- cyclohexadiene-1-carboxylate, which undergoes rapid aromatization to the final product, 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate (2,3-DHB). Only the compounds with a C3-hydroxyl group such as methyl 2,3-dihydro-2,3- dihydroxybenzoate, methyl-3-hydroxy-1,4-cyclohexadiene-1-ca [...]

fes
Upon internalization, ferric enterobactin is processed via an exquisitely specific pathway that is dependent on FES activity, making iron available for metabolic use
 
 
 0.904
entE
Involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin (enterochelin), which is a macrocyclic trimeric lactone of N-(2,3- dihydroxybenzoyl)-serine. The serine trilactone serves as a scaffolding for the three catechol functionalities that provide hexadentate coordination for the tightly ligated iron(2+) atoms. EntE proccesses via a two-step adenylation-ligation reaction (bi-uni-uni-bi ping-pong mechanism). First, it catalyzes the activation of the carboxylate group of 2,3-dihydroxy-benzoate (DHB), via a reversible ATP-dependent pyrophosphate exchange reactions to yield the acylade [...]

entB
Involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin (enterochelin), which is a macrocyclic trimeric lactone of N-(2,3- dihydroxybenzoyl)-serine. The serine trilactone serves as a scaffolding for the three catechol functionalities that provide hexadentate coordination for the tightly ligated iron(2+) atoms. EntB is a bifunctional protein that serves as an isochorismate lyase and an aryl carrier protein (ArCP). Catalyzes the conversion of isochorismate to 2,3-dihydro-2,3-dihydroxybenzoate (2,3-diDHB), the precursor of 2,3- dihydroxybenzoate (DHB). In the enterobactin assembly, E [...]

fepA
This protein is involved in the initial step of iron uptake by binding ferrienterobactin (Fe-ENT), an iron chelatin siderophore that allows E.coli to extract iron from the environment. FepA also acts as a receptor for colicins B and D
  
 
0.886
exbB
Involved in the TonB-dependent energy-dependent transport of various receptor-bound substrates. Protects ExbD from proteolytic degradation and functionally stabilizes TonB
  
 
 0.885
fiu
Involved in the active transport across the outer membrane of iron complexed with catecholate siderophores such as dihydroxybenzoylserine and dihydroxybenzoate. It derives its energy for transport by interacting with the trans-periplasmic membrane protein TonB. Can also transport catechol-substituted cephalosporins. Receptor for microcins M, H47 and E492.
