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
sydSecy interacting protein syd; Interacts with the SecY protein in vivo. May bind preferentially to an uncomplexed state of SecY, thus functioning either as a chelating agent for excess SecY in the cell or as a regulatory factor that negatively controls the translocase function (181 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
A GTPase-activating protein (GAP) that modifies Der/EngA GTPase function, negatively regulating cell growth, probably via ribosome assembly. Stimulates the GTPase activity of Der; a construct missing the first 45 residues is even more stimulatory. Does not stimulate 2 other GTPases (ObgE and Era). Overexpression inhibits cell growth; precursor 16S rRNA accumulates, the 23S rRNA is 6-7 bases longer than usual, and 50S ribosomal subunits are improperly assembled, leading to 45S subunits lacking proteins L9, L18 and L25. Overexpression of Der in the same cells suppresses the 50S subunit a [...]
putrescine:2-oxoglutaric acid aminotransferase, PLP-dependent; Catalyzes the aminotransferase reaction from putrescine to 2- oxoglutarate, leading to glutamate and 4-aminobutanal, which spontaneously cyclizes to form 1-pyrroline This is the first step in one of two pathways for putrescine degradation, where putrescine is converted into 4- aminobutanoate (gamma-aminobutyrate or GABA) via 4-aminobutanal, which allows E.coli to grow on putrescine as the sole nitrogen source . Also functions as a cadaverine transaminase in a a L-lysine degradation pathway to succinate that proceeds via cad [...]
Gamma-aminobutyraldehyde dehydrogenase; Catalyzes the oxidation 4-aminobutanal (gamma- aminobutyraldehyde) to 4-aminobutanoate (gamma-aminobutyrate or GABA) . This is the second step in one of two pathways for putrescine degradation, where putrescine is converted into 4-aminobutanoate via 4-aminobutanal, which allows E.coli to grow on putrescine as the sole nitrogen source Also functions as a 5-aminopentanal dehydrogenase in a a L-lysine degradation pathway to succinate that proceeds via cadaverine, glutarate and L-2-hydroxyglutarate . Can also oxidize n-alkyl medium-chain aldehydes, b [...]
7-cyano-7-deazaguanine reductase (NADPH-dependent); Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of 7-cyano-7- deazaguanine (preQ0) to 7-aminomethyl-7-deazaguanine (preQ1), a late step in the queuosine pathway. Is highly specific for its natural substrate preQ0, since it cannot use various aliphatic, aromatic, benzylic and heterocyclic nitriles, such as acetonitrile, benzonitrile, benzylcyanide and 2-cyanopyrrole, although it can reduce the substrate analog 5-cyanopyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-4-one with lesser efficiency
Cell division protein zapc; Contributes to the efficiency of the cell division process by stabilizing the polymeric form of the cell division protein FtsZ. Acts by promoting interactions between FtsZ protofilaments and suppressing the GTPase activity of FtsZ
Gnat family putative n-acetyltransferase; Uncharacterized protein YiiD; Putative acetyltransferase

Psp operon transcription co-activator; The phage shock protein (psp) operon (pspABCDE) may play a significant role in the competition for survival under nutrient- or energy-limited conditions. PspB is involved in transcription regulation
Seqa, negative modulator of initiation of replication; Negative regulator of replication initiation, which contributes to regulation of DNA replication and ensures that replication initiation occurs exactly once per chromosome per cell cycle. Binds to pairs of hemimethylated GATC sequences in the oriC region, thus preventing assembly of replication proteins and re- initiation at newly replicated origins. Repression is relieved when the region becomes fully methylated. Can also bind to hemimethylated GATC sequences outside of oriC region. Binds, with less affinity, to fully methylated G [...]
