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

mepSA murein DD-endopeptidase with specificity for D-Ala-meso- diaminopimelic acid (mDAP) cross-links. Its role is probably to cleave D-Ala-mDAP cross-links to allow insertion of new glycans and thus cell wall expansion. Functionally redundant with MepM and MepH. Also has weak LD-carboxypeptidase activity on L-mDAP-D-Ala peptide bonds. Partially suppresses a prc disruption mutant. (188 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
mpaA
Involved in muropeptide degradation. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of the gamma-D-glutamyl-diaminopimelic acid (gamma-D-Glu-Dap) amide bond in the murein tripeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso- diaminopimelic acid, leading to the formation of L-Ala-gamma-D-Glu and Dap . Has weak activity with L-Ala- gamma-D-Glu-L-Lys, MurNAc-tripeptide and gamma-D-Glu-meso-Dap . Cannot hydrolyze murein tetrapeptide
     
 0.921
ampD
Involved in cell wall peptidoglycan recycling . Specifically cleaves the amide bond between the lactyl group of N-acetylmuramic acid and the alpha-amino group of the L-alanine in degradation products containing an anhydro N-acetylmuramyl moiety . Is also involved in beta-lactamase induction
    
 0.904
amiD
N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase AmiD; Putative regulator; Not classified
    
 0.904
mpl
Reutilizes the intact tripeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl- meso-diaminopimelate by linking it to UDP-N-acetylmuramate. The enzyme can also use the tetrapeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D-glutamyl-meso-2,6- diaminoheptanedioyl-D-alanine or the pentapeptide L-alanyl-gamma-D- glutamyl-meso-2,6-diaminoheptandioyl-D-alanyl-D-alanine in vivo and in vitro
   
 
 0.901
nlpI
May be involved in cell division. May play a role in bacterial septation or regulation of cell wall degradation during cell division. Negatively controls the production of extracellular DNA (eDNA)
      
 0.881
mepM
A murein DD-endopeptidase with specificity for D-Ala-meso- diaminopimelic acid (mDAP) cross-links. Its role is probably to cleave D-Ala-mDAP cross-links to allow insertion of new glycans and thus cell wall expansion. Functionally redundant with MepM and MepH. Partially suppresses an mepS disruption mutant
 
 
 0.867
prc
Involved in the cleavage of a C-terminal peptide of 11 residues from the precursor form of penicillin-binding protein 3 (PBP3). May be involved in protection of the bacterium from thermal and osmotic stresses
   
  
 0.831
mltD
Murein-degrading enzyme. May play a role in recycling of muropeptides during cell elongation and/or cell division (By similarity)
  
 
 0.750
lpoB
Regulator of peptidoglycan synthesis that is essential for the function of penicillin-binding protein 1B (PBP1b). Stimulates transpeptidase and transglycosylase activities of PBP1b in vitro. May also contribute to outer membrane constriction during cell division, in complex with PBP1b
