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

yfcFExhibits glutathione (GSH) S-transferase activity toward 1- chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (CDNB); however this activity is as low as 1% of that of GstA. Also displays a GSH-dependent peroxidase activity toward cumene hydroperoxide. Is involved in defense against oxidative stress, probably via its peroxidase activity. (214 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Catalyzes the conjugation of reduced glutathione (GSH) to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles. Shows activity toward 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (CDNB) and ethacrynic acid. Also possesses thiol:disulfide oxidoreductase activity, using GSH to reduce bis-(2-hydroxyethyl) disulfide (HEDS). Has a low level of glutathione-dependent peroxidase activity toward cumene hydroperoxide. Is important for defense against oxidative stress, probably via its peroxidase activity.

Maintains high levels of reduced glutathione in the cytosol
Non-specific peroxidase that can use thioredoxin or glutathione as a reducing agent. In vitro, utilizes preferentially thioredoxin A to decompose hydrogen peroxide as well as cumene-, tert- butyl-, and linoleic acid hydroperoxides, suggesting that it may have one or more organic hydroperoxide as its physiological substrate.
Protein involved in glutathione biosynthetic process
Catalyzes the cleavage of glutathione into 5-oxo-L-proline and a Cys-Gly dipeptide. Acts specifically on glutathione, but not on other gamma-glutamyl peptides
Cleaves the gamma-glutamyl bond of periplasmic glutathione (gamma-Glu-Cys-Gly), glutathione conjugates, and other gamma-glutamyl compounds. The metabolism of glutathione releases free glutamate and the dipeptide cysteinyl-glycine, which is hydrolyzed to cysteine and glycine by dipeptidases; it may function in amino acid uptake/salvage, or possibly in peptidoglycan linkage. Catalyzes the hydrolysis and transpeptidation of many gamma-glutamyl compounds (including some D- gamma-glutamyl substrates), with a preference for basic and aromatic amino acids as acceptors . The KM values for gamm [...]
Catalyzes the formation of an amide bond between glutathione (GSH) and spermidine coupled with hydrolysis of ATP; also catalyzes the opposing reaction, i.e. the hydrolysis of glutathionylspermidine (Gsp) back to glutathione and spermidine. The amidase active site can also hydrolyze Gsp-disulfide (Gsp-S-S-Gsp) to Gsp-SG and Gsp S-thiolated proteins (GspSSPs) to GSH S-thiolated protein (GSSPs). Likely acts synergistically with glutaredoxin to regulate the redox environment of E.coli and defend against oxidative damage. In vitro, the amidase active site also catalyzes hydrolysis of amide [...]
Exhibits a very robust glutathione (GSH)-dependent disulfide- bond reductase activity toward the model substrate, 2-hydroxyethyl disulfide; the actual physiological substrates are not known. Has also a low GSH-dependent hydroperoxidase activity toward cumene hydroperoxide, but does not reduce H(2)O(2), tert-butyl hydroperoxide, benzyl peroxide, or lauroyl peroxide. Exhibits little or no GSH transferase activity with most typical electrophilic substrates, and has no detectable transferase activity using glutathionylspermidine (GspSH) as the nucleophilic substrate. Is involved in defense [...]
Conjugation of reduced glutathione to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles. Catalyzes the glutathione-dependent dehalogenation of bromoacetate.
Shows phosphodiesterase activity, hydrolyzing phosphodiesters bonds in the artificial chromogenic substrates bis-p-nitrophenyl phosphate (bis-pNPP), and less efficiently thymidine 5'-monophosphate p-nitrophenyl ester (pNP-TMP) and p-nitrophenylphosphorylcholine (pNPPC). The physiological substrate is unknown.
