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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

mlaCAbc transporter maintaining om lipid asymmetry, periplasmic binding protein; Involved in a phospholipid transport pathway that maintains lipid asymmetry in the outer membrane by retrograde trafficking of phospholipids from the outer membrane to the inner membrane. May transfer phospholipid across the periplasmic space and deliver it to the MlaFEDB complex at the inner membrane (211 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
mlaB
Abc transporter maintaining om lipid asymmetry, cytoplasmic stas component; Part of the ABC transporter complex MlaFEDB, which is involved in a phospholipid transport pathway that maintains lipid asymmetry in the outer membrane by retrograde trafficking of phospholipids from the outer membrane to the inner membrane . MlaB plays critical roles in both the assembly and activity of the complex. May act by modulating MlaF structure and stability

mlaD
Phospholipid/cholesterol/gamma-hch transport system substrate-binding protein; Part of the ABC transporter complex MlaFEDB, which is involved in a phospholipid transport pathway that maintains lipid asymmetry in the outer membrane by retrograde trafficking of phospholipids from the outer membrane to the inner membrane . MlaD functions in substrate binding with strong affinity for phospholipids and modulates ATP hydrolytic activity of the complex
 0.999
mlaE
Abc transporter maintaining om lipid asymmetry, inner membrane permease protein; Part of the ABC transporter complex MlaFEDB, which is involved in a phospholipid transport pathway that maintains lipid asymmetry in the outer membrane by retrograde trafficking of phospholipids from the outer membrane to the inner membrane. Probably responsible for the translocation of the substrate across the membrane
 
 0.998
mlaF
Phospholipid/cholesterol/gamma-hch transport system atp-binding protein; Part of the ABC transporter complex MlaFEDB, which is involved in a phospholipid transport pathway that maintains lipid asymmetry in the outer membrane by retrograde trafficking of phospholipids from the outer membrane to the inner membrane. Responsible for energy coupling to the transport system

mlaA
Intermembrane phospholipid transport system - outer membrane lipoprotein mlaa; Involved in a phospholipid transport pathway that maintains lipid asymmetry in the outer membrane by retrograde trafficking of phospholipids from the outer membrane to the inner membrane
 
 
 0.995
lptC
Periplasmic membrane-anchored lps-binding protein; Involved in the assembly of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Required for the translocation of LPS from the inner membrane to the outer membrane. Facilitates the transfer of LPS from the inner membrane to the periplasmic protein LptA. Could be a docking site for LptA
 
  
 0.866
lolA
Participates in the translocation of lipoproteins from the inner membrane to the outer membrane. Only forms a complex with a lipoprotein if the residue after the N-terminal Cys is not an aspartate (The Asp acts as a targeting signal to indicate that the lipoprotein should stay in the inner membrane); the inner membrane retention signal functions at the release step
  
  
 0.824
ibaG
Acid stress protein ibag; Involved in cell resistance against acid stress
 
  
 0.819
macB
Abc-type tripartite efflux pump atp binding/membrane subunit; Part of the tripartite efflux system MacAB-TolC. MacB is a non-canonical ABC transporter that contains transmembrane domains (TMD), which form a pore in the inner membrane, and an ATP-binding domain (NBD), which is responsible for energy generation. When overexpressed, the system confers resistance against macrolides composed of 14- and 15-membered lactones but no or weak resistance against 16-membered ones. In addition, the system could also transport R-LPS or a similar glycolipid

lptA
Lipopolysaccharide export abc transporter periplasmic binding protein; Involved in the assembly of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Required for the translocation of LPS from the inner membrane to the outer membrane. May form a bridge between the inner membrane and the outer membrane, via interactions with LptC and LptD, thereby facilitating LPS transfer across the periplasm
