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

Gene Fusion
bepAOm protein maintenance and assembly metalloprotease and chaperone, periplasmic; Functions as both a chaperone and a metalloprotease. Maintains the integrity of the outer membrane by promoting either the assembly or the elimination of outer membrane proteins, depending on their folding state. Promotes disulfide rearrangement of LptD during its biogenesis, and proteolytic degradation of LptD and BamA when their proper assembly is compromised. May facilitate membrane attachment of LoiP under unfavorable conditions (487 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Putative peptidase-related chaperone; Involved in the degradation of the LPS-assembly protein LptD. Degrades LptD that have engaged the Bam complex but are stalled at an early step in the outer membrane protein assembly process
Arsenate reductase (glutaredoxin); Belongs to the ArsC family
Putative upf0118 family inner membrane permease; Putative permease
Nalidixic acid resistance protein, putative periplasmic protein; Uncharacterized protein YfgI; Putative membrane protein
Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase (ppiase); Chaperone involved in the correct folding and assembly of outer membrane proteins, such as OmpA, OmpF and LamB. Recognizes specific patterns of aromatic residues and the orientation of their side chains, which are found more frequently in integral outer membrane proteins. May act in both early periplasmic and late outer membrane- associated steps of protein maturation. Essential for the survival of E.coli in stationary phase. Required for pilus biogenesis
Lps assembly om complex lptde, beta-barrel component; Together with LptE, is involved in the assembly of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) at the surface of the outer membrane. Contributes to n-hexane resistance
Putative serine protease ydgd; Belongs to the peptidase S1B family
Bamabcde complex om biogenesis outer membrane pore-forming assembly factor; Part of the outer membrane protein assembly complex (Bam), which is involved in assembly and insertion of beta-barrel proteins into the outer membrane. Constitutes, with BamD, the core component of the assembly machinery. Efficient substrate folding and insertion into the outer membrane requires all 5 subunits A lateral gate may open between the first and last strands of the BamA beta-barrel that allows substrate to insert into the outer membrane; comparison of the structures of complete and nearly complete Bam [...]

Amino acid n-acetyltransferase and inactive acetylglutamate kinase; Belongs to the acetyltransferase family. ArgA subfamily
