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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
cysZSulfate transporter CysZ; High affinity, high specificity proton-dependent sulfate transporter, which mediates sulfate uptake. Provides the sulfur source for the cysteine synthesis pathway. Does not transport thiosulfate; Belongs to the CysZ family (253 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Cysteine synthase A; In addition to its role in cysteine synthesis, stimulates the tRNase activity of CdiA-CT from E.coli strain 536 / UPEC; stimulation does not require O-acetylserine sulfhydrylase activity. CdiA is the toxic component of a toxin-immunity protein module, which functions as a cellular contact-dependent growth inhibition (CDI) system. CDI modules allow bacteria to communicate with and inhibit the growth of closely related neighboring bacteria in a contact-dependent fashion (experiments done in strains BW25113 and X90, both K12 derivatives). This protein is not required [...]
Cell division protein ZipA; Essential cell division protein that stabilizes the FtsZ protofilaments by cross-linking them and that serves as a cytoplasmic membrane anchor for the Z ring. Also required for the recruitment to the septal ring of the downstream cell division proteins FtsK, FtsQ, FtsL and FtsN. ZipA overproduction protects FtsZ from degradation by ClpP by preventing recognition by ClpX. Does not affect the GTPase activity of FtsZ
High frequency lysogenization protein HflD; Negative regulator of phage lambda lysogenization. Contributes to the degradation of the phage regulatory protein CII. Acts probably by holding CII on the membrane surface, away from the target promoters, but close to the FtsH protease; Belongs to the HflD family
DNA ligase; DNA ligase that catalyzes the formation of phosphodiester linkages between 5'-phosphoryl and 3'-hydroxyl groups in double-stranded DNA using NAD as a coenzyme and as the energy source for the reaction. It is essential for DNA replication and repair of damaged DNA; Belongs to the NAD-dependent DNA ligase family. LigA subfamily
annotation not available
RNA polymerase-associated protein RapA; Transcription regulator that activates transcription by stimulating RNA polymerase (RNAP) recycling in case of stress conditions such as supercoiled DNA or high salt concentrations. Probably acts by releasing the RNAP, when it is trapped or immobilized on tightly supercoiled DNA. Does not activate transcription on linear DNA. Probably not involved in DNA repair (By similarity); Belongs to the SNF2/RAD54 helicase family. RapA subfamily
annotation not available
3',5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate phosphodiesterase CpdA; Hydrolyzes cAMP to 5'-AMP. Plays an important regulatory role in modulating the intracellular concentration of cAMP, thereby influencing cAMP-dependent processes. Specific for cAMP
Putative permease
tRNA U34 carboxymethyltransferase; Catalyzes carboxymethyl transfer from carboxy-S- adenosyl-L-methionine (Cx-SAM) to 5-hydroxyuridine (ho5U) to form 5-carboxymethoxyuridine (cmo5U) at position 34 in tRNAs. Can also catalyze the SAM-dependent methylation of ho5U, with much lower efficiency
