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

Predicted Functional Partners:
Outer membrane protein assembly factor BamB; Part of the outer membrane protein assembly complex (Bam), which is involved in assembly and insertion of beta-barrel proteins into the outer membrane. Nonessential member of the complex, which may orient the flexible periplasmic domain of BamA for interaction with other Bam components, chaperones and nascent outer membrane proteins. 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 [...]
Histidine--tRNA ligase; Histidine tRNA synthetase; Protein involved in tRNA aminoacylation for protein translation
4-hydroxy-3-methylbut-2-en-1-yl diphosphate synthase (flavodoxin); Converts 2C-methyl-D-erythritol 2,4-cyclodiphosphate (ME-2,4cPP) into 1-hydroxy-2-methyl-2-(E)-butenyl 4-diphosphate, using flavodoxin as the reducing agent; Belongs to the IspG family
GTPase Der; GTPase that plays an essential role in the late steps of ribosome biogenesis. GTPase point mutations (but not a deletion mutant) are suppressed by mild overexpression of RelA, probably due to increased levels of the stringent response mediator (p)ppGpp. 50S subunits assembled in the absence of Der are defective and unable to assemble into 70S ribosomes. GTPase activity is stimulated by YihI. Overexpression rescues an rrmJ deletion, stabilizing the 70S ribosome. Der and RrmJ are likely to share a mechanism to stabilize 50S ribosomal subunits at a very late stage of 50S subun [...]
Modulator protein MzrA; Modulates the activity of the EnvZ/OmpR two-component regulatory system, probably by directly modulating EnvZ enzymatic activity and increasing stability of phosphorylated OmpR. Links the two-component systems CpxA/CpxR and EnvZ/OmpR; Belongs to the MzrA family
Transcriptional regulatory protein RcsB; Component of the Rcs signaling system, which controls transcription of numerous genes. RcsB is the response regulator that binds to regulatory DNA regions. Can function both in an RcsA-dependent or RcsA-independent manner. The system regulates expression of numerous genes, including genes involved in colanic acid capsule synthesis, biofilm formation, cell division and outer membrane proteins synthesis. Also involved, with GadE, in control of glutamate-dependent acid resistance, and, with BglJ, in derepression of the cryptic bgl operon. The RcsB- [...]

Divisome-associated membrane protein Blr; Component of the cell division machinery, which is probably involved in the stabilization of the divisome under certain stress conditions
Hexuronate transporter; Aldohexuronate transport system
Uncharacterized protein YqjD; Upon overexpression inhibits growth
