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

rtcBGTP-dependent RNA ligase that is involved in tRNA splicing and RNA repair (PubMed:21224389, PubMed:21757685, PubMed:22045815, PubMed:22730297, PubMed:22474365, PubMed:26858100). Joins RNA with 2',3'-cyclic-phosphate or 3'-phosphate ends to RNA with 5'-hydroxy ends (PubMed:21224389, PubMed:21757685, PubMed:22045815, PubMed:22730297, PubMed:22474365, PubMed:26858100). Also acts as a DNA ligase in case of DNA damage by splicing 'dirty' DNA breaks, characterized by 3'- phosphate (or cyclic-phosphate) and 5'-hydroxy ends that cannot be sealed by classical DNA ligases .

Predicted Functional Partners:
rtcA
Catalyzes the conversion of 3'-phosphate to a 2',3'-cyclic phosphodiester at the end of RNA. The mechanism of action of the enzyme occurs in 3 steps: (A) adenylation of the enzyme by ATP; (B) transfer of adenylate to an RNA-N3'P to produce RNA-N3'PP5'A; (C) and attack of the adjacent 2'-hydroxyl on the 3'-phosphorus in the diester linkage to produce the cyclic end product. The biological role of this enzyme is unknown but it is likely to function in some aspects of cellular RNA processing

rtcR
Transcriptional repressor of the rtcAB genes. Interacts with sigma-54
 
   
 0.989
yhcG
May be a nuclease involved in DNA recombination and repair.
  
   
 0.771
kptA
Removes the 2'-phosphate from RNA via an intermediate in which the phosphate is ADP-ribosylated by NAD followed by a presumed transesterification to release the RNA and generate ADP-ribose 1''-2''- cyclic phosphate (APPR>P). May function as an ADP-ribosylase.
 
  
 0.757
ligT
Hydrolyzes RNA 2',3'-cyclic phosphodiester to an RNA 2'- phosphomonoester . In vitro, can also ligate 5' and 3' half-tRNA molecules with 2',3'-cyclic phosphate and 5'-hydroxyl termini, respectively, to the product containing the 2'-5' phosphodiester linkage. This reaction does not require ATP and is reversible .
     
 0.648
mazF
Toxic component of a type II toxin-antitoxin (TA) system. A sequence-specific endoribonuclease it inhibits protein synthesis by cleaving mRNA and inducing bacterial stasis. It is stable, single- strand specific with mRNA cleavage independent of the ribosome, although translation enhances cleavage for some mRNAs . Cleavage occurs at the 5'-end of ACA sequences, yielding a 2',3'-cyclic phosphate and a free 5'-OH, although cleavage can also occur on the 3'-end of the first A (PubMed:15537630, PubMed:23280569). Digests 16S rRNA in vivo 43 nts upstream of the C- terminus; this removes the a [...]

ybiA
Catalyzes the hydrolysis of the N-glycosidic bond in the first two intermediates of riboflavin biosynthesis, which are highly reactive metabolites, yielding relatively innocuous products. Thus, can divert a surplus of harmful intermediates into relatively harmless products and pre-empt the damage these intermediates would otherwise do. Helps maintain flavin levels. May act on other substrates in vivo. Has no activity against GTP, nucleoside monophosphates or ADP-ribose . Is Required for swarming motility .

sbcC
SbcCD cleaves DNA hairpin structures. These structures can inhibit DNA replication and are intermediates in certain DNA recombination reactions. The complex acts as a 3'->5' double strand exonuclease that can open hairpins. It also has a 5' single-strand endonuclease activity
