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

lpxPCatalyzes the transfer of palmitoleate from palmitoleoyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) to Kdo(2)-lipid IV(A) to form Kdo(2)- (palmitoleoyl)-lipid IV(A). Required for the biosynthesis of a distinct molecular species of lipid A, which is present only in cells grown at low temperatures. It may confer a selective advantage to cells growing at lower temperatures by making the outer membrane a more effective barrier to harmful chemicals (306 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
waaA
Involved in lipopolysaccharide (LPS) biosynthesis. Catalyzes the transfer of two 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonate (Kdo) residues from CMP-Kdo to lipid IV(A), the tetraacyldisaccharide-1,4'-bisphosphate precursor of lipid A
 
 0.989
lpxM
Catalyzes the transfer of myristate from myristoyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) to Kdo(2)-(lauroyl)-lipid IV(A) to form Kdo(2)- lipid A. Can probably also catalyze the transfer of myristate to Kdo(2)-(palmitoleoyl)-lipid IV(A) to form the cold-adapted Kdo(2)-lipid A. In vitro, can acylate Kdo(2)-lipid IV(A), but acylation of (KDO)2- (lauroyl)-lipid IV(A) is about 100 times faster. In vitro, can use lauroyl-ACP but displays a slight kinetic preference for myristoyl-ACP.
 
  
0.949
lpxD
Catalyzes the N-acylation of UDP-3-O- (hydroxytetradecanoyl)glucosamine using 3-hydroxytetradecanoyl-ACP as the acyl donor. Is involved in the biosynthesis of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell. Prefers (3R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoyl-ACP over (3R)-3-hydroxyhexadecanoyl-ACP as the acyl donor in vitro, which is consistent with the structure of E.coli lipid A that contains over 95% (R)-3-hydroxytetradecanoate at the 2 and 2' positions.
 
  
 0.936
lpxL
Catalyzes the transfer of laurate from lauroyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) to Kdo(2)-lipid IV(A) to form Kdo(2)-(lauroyl)-lipid IV(A). Has 10 fold selectivity for lauroyl-ACP over myristoyl-ACP. In vitro, can also catalyze a slow second acylation reaction leading to the formation of Kdo(2)-(dilauroyl)-lipid IV(A).
  
  
0.906
lpxA
Involved in the biosynthesis of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell
 
  
 0.887
lpxB
Condensation of UDP-2,3-diacylglucosamine and 2,3- diacylglucosamine-1-phosphate to form lipid A disaccharide, a precursor of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell
 
 
 0.885
lpxH
Hydrolyzes the pyrophosphate bond of UDP-2,3- diacylglucosamine to yield 2,3-diacylglucosamine 1-phosphate (lipid X) and UMP by catalyzing the attack of water at the alpha-P atom . Involved in the biosynthesis of lipid A, a phosphorylated glycolipid that anchors the lipopolysaccharide to the outer membrane of the cell . Is essential for E.coli growth . Does not cleave the unacylated UDP-GlcNAc, the mono-acylated UDP-3-O-(R)-3- hydroxymyristoyl-GlcNAc, and CDP-diacylglycerol .
 
 
 
 0.872
lpxK
Transfers the gamma-phosphate of ATP to the 4'-position of a tetraacyldisaccharide 1-phosphate intermediate (termed DS-1-P) to form tetraacyldisaccharide 1,4'-bis-phosphate (lipid IVA).
 
 
 0.872
lpxC
Catalyzes the hydrolysis of UDP-3-O-myristoyl-N- acetylglucosamine to form UDP-3-O-myristoylglucosamine and acetate, the committed step in lipid A biosynthesis. Rule:MF_00388, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10026271, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8530464,
 
  
 0.830
hldE
Catalyzes the phosphorylation of D-glycero-D-manno-heptose 7- phosphate at the C-1 position to selectively form D-glycero-beta-D- manno-heptose-1,7-bisphosphate
