STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

rbfA30S ribosome-binding factor; One of at least 4 proteins (Era, RbfA, RimM and RsgA/YjeQ) that assist in the late maturation steps of the functional core of the 30S subunit. Essential for efficient processing of pre-16S rRNA. Probably part of the 30S subunit prior to or during the final step in the processing of 16S free 30S ribosomal subunits. Probably interacts with the 5'-terminal helix region of 16S rRNA. Has affinity for free ribosomal 30S subunits but not for 70S ribosomes. Overexpression suppresses a cold-sensitive C23U 16S rRNA mutation. Overexpression decreases the lag time foll [...] (133 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
truB
tRNA pseudouridine synthase B; Responsible for synthesis of pseudouridine from uracil- 55 in the psi GC loop of transfer RNAs; Belongs to the pseudouridine synthase TruB family. Type 1 subfamily
 
  
 0.994
infB
Translation initiation factor IF-2; One of the essential components for the initiation of protein synthesis. May protect N-formylmethionyl-tRNA(fMet) from spontaneous hydrolysis. Promotes N-formylmethionyl-tRNA(fMet) binding to the 30S pre-initiation complex (PIC). Also involved in the hydrolysis of GTP during the formation of the 70S ribosomal complex. Upon addition of the 50S ribosomal subunit, IF-1, IF-2 and IF-3 are released leaving the mature 70S translation initation complex
 
  
 0.977
rimP
Ribosome maturation factor RimP; Required for maturation of 30S ribosomal subunits, probably at a late stage of ribosomal protein binding, while Era is associated and after RimM
  
 
 0.941
rsgA
Small ribosomal subunit biogenesis GTPase RsgA; One of at least 4 proteins (Era, RbfA, RimM and RsgA/YjeQ) that assist in the late maturation steps of the functional core of the 30S ribosomal subunit. Binds the 30S subunit contacting the head, platform, and rRNA helix 44, which may assist the last maturation stages. Removes RbfA from mature, but not immature 30S ribosomes in a GTP-dependent manner; 95% removal in the presence of GTP, 90% removal in GMP-PNP and 65% removal in the presence of GDP. Circulary permuted GTPase that catalyzes rapid hydrolysis of GTP with a slow catalytic turn [...]

rpsO
30S ribosomal protein S15; One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, it binds directly to 16S rRNA where it helps nucleate assembly of the platform of the 30S subunit by binding and bridging several RNA helices of the 16S rRNA. Binds to its own mRNA, stabilizing it 5-UTR and preventing its translation
  
  
 0.895
rimM
Ribosome maturation factor RimM; One of at least 4 proteins (Era, RbfA, RimM and RsgA/YjeQ) that assist in the late assembly stage of the 30S ribosomal subunit. An accessory protein needed during the final step in assembly of the 30S ribosomal subunit, for assembly of the head region (the 16S rRNA 3' domain). It may act while Era is associated and before RimP in 30S subunit assembly. Interacts with S19. Essential for efficient processing of 16S rRNA; a deletion mutant accumulates 17S rRNA. Deletions also do not assemble the head-associated ribosomal proteins correctly. May be needed bo [...]

pnp
Polyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase; Involved in mRNA degradation. Catalyzes the phosphorolysis of single-stranded polyribonucleotides processively in the 3'- to 5'-direction. Also involved, along with RNase II, in tRNA processing
 
  
 0.782
nusA
Transcription termination/antitermination protein NusA; Participates in both transcription termination and antitermination. Involved in a variety of cellular and viral termination and antitermination processes, such as Rho-dependent transcriptional termination, intrinsic termination, and phage lambda N-mediated transcriptional antitermination. Also important for coordinating the cellular responses to DNA damage by coupling the processes of nucleotide excision repair and translesion synthesis to transcription
  
    0.764
rpsQ
30S ribosomal protein S17; One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, it binds specifically to the 5'-end of 16S ribosomal RNA. Also plays a role in translational accuracy; neamine-resistant ribosomes show reduced neamine-induced misreading in vitro
