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

zntRHTH-type transcriptional regulator ZntR; Zinc-responsive transcriptional regulator of zntA (141 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Zinc/cadmium/lead-transporting P-type ATPase; Confers resistance to zinc, cadmium and lead. Couples the hydrolysis of ATP with the export of zinc, cadmium or lead, with highest activity when the metals are present as metal-thiolate complexes. Can also bind nickel, copper, cobalt and mercury; Belongs to the cation transport ATPase (P-type) (TC 3.A.3) family. Type IB subfamily
annotation not available
Zinc transporter ZitB; Involved in zinc efflux across the cytoplasmic membrane, thus reducing zinc accumulation in the cytoplasm and rendering bacteria more resistant to zinc. It may contribute to zinc homeostasis at low concentrations of zinc, whereas ZntA is required for growth at more toxic concentrations; Belongs to the cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter (TC 2.A.4) family. SLC30A subfamily
Zinc transporter ZupT; Mediates zinc uptake. May also transport other divalent cations such as copper and cadmium ions
annotation not available
Alternative ribosome-rescue factor A; Rescues ribosomes stalled at the 3' end of non-stop mRNAs. This activity is crucial when the stalled ribosome cannot be rescued by the SsrA(tmRNA)- SmpB quality control system. Binds the 30S subunit, contacting 16S rRNA with the N-terminus near the decoding center and its C-terminus in the mRNA entry channel; contacts change in the presence of release factor 2 (RF2, also named PrfB). Requires RF2/PrfB to hydrolyze stalled peptidyl-tRNA on the ribosome; recruits and probably helps position RF2/PrfB correctly in the ribosomal A site so RF2's GGQ moti [...]
Arsenical resistance operon repressor; Transcriptional repressor for the arsEFG operon. ArsE is a trans-acting regulatory protein which controls its own expression. The repressive effect of ArsE is alleviated by oxyions of +III oxidation state of arsenic, antimony, and bismuth, as well as arsenate (As(V)) (By similarity)
Ferrous-iron efflux pump FieF; Iron-efflux transporter responsible for iron detoxification. Also able to transport Zn(2+) in a proton- dependent manner; Belongs to the cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter (TC 2.A.4) family. FieF subfamily
Transcriptional repressor RcnR; Repressor of rcnA expression. Acts by binding specifically to the rcnA promoter in the absence of nickel and cobalt. In the presence of one of these metals, it has a weaker affinity for rcnA promoter
Redox-sensitive transcriptional activator SoxR; Activates the transcription of the soxS gene which itself controls the superoxide response regulon. SoxR contains a 2Fe-2S iron-sulfur cluster that may act as a redox sensor system that recognizes superoxide. The variable redox state of the Fe-S cluster is employed in vivo to modulate the transcriptional activity of SoxR in response to specific types of oxidative stress. Upon reduction of 2Fe-2S cluster, SoxR reversibly loses its transcriptional activity, but retains its DNA binding affinity
