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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
mugG/U mismatch-specific DNA glycosylase; Excises ethenocytosine and uracil, which can arise by alkylation or deamination of cytosine, respectively, from the corresponding mispairs with guanine in ds-DNA. It is capable of hydrolyzing the carbon-nitrogen bond between the sugar-phosphate backbone of the DNA and the mispaired base. The complementary strand guanine functions in substrate recognition. Required for DNA damage lesion repair in stationary-phase cells; Belongs to the uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) superfamily. TDG/mug family (168 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Beta-glucuronidase; Protein involved in carbohydrate catabolic process; Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 2 family
Uracil-DNA glycosylase; Excises uracil residues from the DNA which can arise as a result of misincorporation of dUMP residues by DNA polymerase or due to deamination of cytosine
Uncharacterized protein YggC; Putative kinase
annotation not available
Sugar efflux transporter B; Involved in the efflux of sugars. The physiological role may be the detoxification of non-metabolizable sugar analogs. Can transport lactose and glucose
Probable inner membrane protein Smp; Membrane; Not classified; Belongs to the Smp family
Peptidoglycan D,D-transpeptidase MrdA; Catalyzes cross-linking of the peptidoglycan cell wall. Responsible for the determination of the rod shape of the cell. Is probably required for lateral peptidoglycan synthesis and maintenance of the correct diameter during lateral and centripetal growth; Belongs to the transpeptidase family. MrdA subfamily
tRNA/tmRNA (uracil-C(5))-methyltransferase; Dual-specificity methyltransferase that catalyzes the formation of 5-methyluridine at position 54 (m5U54) in all tRNAs, and that of position 341 (m5U341) in tmRNA (transfer-mRNA)
NADPH-dependent ferric-chelate reductase; Plays a role in iron homeostasis under excess nickel conditions; Belongs to the SIP oxidoreductase family
Type I restriction enzyme EcoKI M protein; The M and S subunits together form a methyltransferase (MTase) that methylates two adenine residues in complementary strands of a bipartite DNA recognition sequence. In the presence of the R subunit the complex can also act as an endonuclease, binding to the same target sequence but cutting the DNA some distance from this site. Whether the DNA is cut or modified depends on the methylation state of the target sequence. When the target site is unmodified, the DNA is cut. When the target site is hemimethylated, the complex acts as a maintenance M [...]
