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
pepBPepb aminopeptidase; Probably plays an important role in intracellular peptide degradation (427 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase / glutathione hydrolase; 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 arom [...]
Glutathione synthetase; Protein involved in glutathione biosynthetic process
Glutathione-specific gamma-glutamylcyclotransferase; 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
Belongs to the glutamate--cysteine ligase type 1 family. Type 1 subfamily
Glutamate---cysteine ligase / carboxylate-amine ligase; ATP-dependent carboxylate-amine ligase which exhibits weak glutamate--cysteine ligase activity. However, because of the low catalytic rate, the question remains whether L-cysteine is the actual biological substrate
Leucyl aminopeptidase; Probably involved in the processing and regular turnover of intracellular proteins . Catalyzes the removal of unsubstituted N-terminal amino acids from various peptides. Required for plasmid ColE1 site-specific recombination but not in its aminopeptidase activity. Could act as a structural component of the putative nucleoprotein complex in which the Xer recombination reaction takes place
Aminopeptidase N is involved in the degradation of intracellular peptides generated by protein breakdown during normal growth as well as in response to nutrient starvation
Fe(2+) donor and activity modulator for cysteine desulfurase; May function as iron donor in the assembly of iron-sulfur clusters
Aspartate aminotransferase, plp-dependent; Aspartate aminotransferase; Protein involved in cellular amino acid catabolic process and aspartate biosynthetic process
(Microbial infection) 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 [...]
