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
yfiRPutative periplasmic inhibitor of yfin activity; Repressor of the cell division arrest function of DgcN. Prevents DgcN relocation to the midcell (172 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Putative membrane-anchored diguanylate cyclase; Bifunctional protein that catalyzes the synthesis of cyclic- di-GMP (c-di-GMP) in response to reductive stress and then dynamically relocates to the division site to arrest cell division in response to envelope stress. In the presence of high intracellular c-di-GMP levels, and in response to envelope stress, interacts with cell division proteins and halts cell division, without disassembling the Z ring, but by blocking its further progress toward cytokinesis . Part of a network that regulates cell motility by altering levels of c- di-GMP
Om lipoprotein putative positive effector of yfin activity; Putative lipoprotein YfiB; Putative outer membrane protein

Cellulose synthase, catalytic subunit; Catalytic subunit of cellulose synthase. It polymerizes uridine 5'-diphosphate glucose to cellulose, which is produced as an extracellular component for mechanical and chemical protection at the onset of the stationary phase, when the cells exhibit multicellular behavior (rdar morphotype). Coexpression of cellulose and thin aggregative fimbriae (curli fimbrae or fibers) leads to a hydrophobic network with tightly packed cells embedded in a highly inert matrix that confers cohesion, elasticity and tissue-like properties to colonies
Putative membrane-anchored diguanylate cyclase; Catalyzes the synthesis of cyclic-di-GMP (c-di-GMP) via the condensation of 2 GTP molecules (By similarity). Cyclic-di-GMP is a second messenger which controls cell surface-associated traits in bacteria. Involved in the regulation of cellulose production
Mannose-specific enzyme iic component of pts; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane . The enzyme II ManXYZ PTS system is involved in mannose transport . Also functions as a receptor for bacterial chemotaxis and is required for infection of the cell by bacteriophage lambda where it most likely functions as a pore for penetration of lambda DNA
Cyclic-di-gmp phosphodiesterase, flhdc-regulated; Involved in the control of the switch from cell motility to adhesion via regulation of cellular levels of cyclic-di-GMP (c-di-GMP) . Part of a signaling cascade that regulates curli biosynthesis. The cascade is composed of two c-di-GMP control modules, in which c-di-GMP controlled by the DgcE/PdeH pair (module I) regulates the activity of the DgcM/PdeR pair (module II), which in turn regulates activity of the transcription factor MlrA and expression of the master biofilm regulator csgD . Effect on flagella is controlled via the c-di-GMP [...]
Diguanylate cyclase dgcp; Catalyzes the synthesis of cyclic-di-GMP (c-di-GMP) via the condensation of 2 GTP molecules. Cyclic-di-GMP is a second messenger which controls cell surface-associated traits in bacteria
Protein dithiol oxidoreductase (disulfide-forming); Required for disulfide bond formation in some periplasmic proteins such as PhoA or OmpA. Acts by transferring its disulfide bond to other proteins and is reduced in the process. DsbA is reoxidized by DsbB. Required for pilus biogenesis. PhoP-regulated transcription is redox-sensitive, being activated when the periplasm becomes more reducing (deletion of dsbA/dsbB, treatment with dithiothreitol). MgrB acts between DsbA/DsbB and PhoP/PhoQ in this pathway
