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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
aerFused signal transducer for aerotaxis sensory component/methyl accepting chemotaxis component; Signal transducer for aerotaxis. The aerotactic response is the accumulation of cells around air bubbles. The nature of the sensory stimulus detected by this protein is the proton motive force or cellular redox state. It uses a FAD prosthetic group as a redox sensor to monitor oxygen levels (506 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Two-component system, chemotaxis family, sensor kinase chea; Involved in the transmission of sensory signals from the chemoreceptors to the flagellar motors. CheA is autophosphorylated; it can transfer its phosphate group to either CheB or CheY
Purine-binding chemotaxis protein chew; Involved in the transmission of sensory signals from the chemoreceptors to the flagellar motors. It physically bridges CheA to the MCPs (methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins) to allow regulated phosphotransfer to CheY and CheB
Chemotaxis regulator, protein-glutamate methyltransferase; Methylation of the membrane-bound methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins (MCP) to form gamma-glutamyl methyl ester residues in MCP
Two-component system, chemotaxis family, protein-glutamate methylesterase/glutaminase; Involved in chemotaxis Part of a chemotaxis signal transduction system that modulates chemotaxis in response to various stimuli . Catalyzes the demethylation of specific methylglutamate residues introduced into the chemoreceptors (methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins or MCP) by CheR Also mediates the irreversible deamidation of specific glutamine residues to glutamic acid . Catalyzes its own deactivation by removing the activating phosphoryl group
Chemotaxis regulator transmitting signal to flagellar motor component; Involved in the transmission of sensory signals from the chemoreceptors to the flagellar motors. In its active (phosphorylated or acetylated) form, CheY exhibits enhanced binding to a switch component, FliM, at the flagellar motor which induces a change from counterclockwise to clockwise flagellar rotation. Overexpression of CheY in association with MotA and MotB improves motility of a ycgR disruption, suggesting there is an interaction (direct or indirect) between the c-di-GMP-binding flagellar brake protein and th [...]
Two-component system, ompr family, aerobic respiration control sensor histidine kinase arcb; Member of the two-component regulatory system ArcB/ArcA. Sensor-regulator protein for anaerobic repression of the arc modulon. Activates ArcA via a four-step phosphorelay. ArcB can also dephosphorylate ArcA by a reverse phosphorelay involving His-717 and Asp-576
Chemotaxis regulator, protein phosphatase for chey; Plays an important role in bacterial chemotaxis signal transduction pathway by accelerating the dephosphorylation of phosphorylated CheY (CheY-P)
Hybrid sensory histidine kinase in two-component regulatory system with evga; Member of the two-component regulatory system EvgS/EvgA. Phosphorylates EvgA via a four-step phosphorelay in response to environmental signals
Rna polymerase sigma factor for flagellar operon flia; Sigma factors are initiation factors that promote the attachment of RNA polymerase to specific initiation sites and are then released. This sigma factor controls the expression of flagella-related genes
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 [...]
