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

bglGMediates the positive regulation of the beta-glucoside (bgl) operon by functioning as a transcriptional antiterminator. This is an RNA-binding protein that recognizes a specific sequence located just upstream of two termination sites within the operon (278 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
bglF
Fused beta-glucoside-specific pts enzymes: iia component/iib component/iic component; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active -transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. This system is involved in beta-glucoside transport
 
 
 
 0.999
bglB
Cryptic phospho-beta-glucosidase b; Catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphorylated beta-glucosides into glucose-6-phosphate (G-6-P) and aglycone. It has a high affinity for phosphorylated aromatic beta-glucosides (p-nitrophenyl-beta- glucoside, phenyl beta-glucoside, arbutin and phosphorylated salicin), and a low affinity for phosphorylated beta-methyl-glucoside
 
  
 0.988
bglA
6-phospho-beta-glucosidase A; Catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphorylated beta-glucosides into glucose-6-phosphate (G-6-P) and aglycone. It has a high affinity for phosphorylated aromatic beta-glucosides (p-nitrophenyl-beta- glucoside, phenyl beta-glucoside, arbutin), with the exception of phosphorylated salicin, and a low affinity for phosphorylated beta- methyl-glucoside. Apparently, it has only a very limited role in the utilization of external beta-glucosides
 
   
 0.862
bglH
Carbohydrate-specific outer membrane porin, cryptic; Part of a cryptic operon that is poorly expressed in vivo. May be an ancestral sugar porin with a broad carbohydrate specificity; it binds aromatic beta-D-glucosides such as arbutin and salicin, but with low affinity compared to the binding of maltooligosaccharides to the LamB porin
 
   
 0.849
ptsP
Phosphoenolpyruvate-protein phosphotransferase ptsp; Component of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent nitrogen- metabolic phosphotransferase system (nitrogen-metabolic PTS), that seems to be involved in regulating nitrogen metabolism. Enzyme I-Ntr transfers the phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to the phosphoryl carrier protein (NPr) . Could function in the transcriptional regulation of sigma-54 dependent operons in conjunction with the NPr (PtsO) and EIIA-Ntr (PtsN) proteins . Enzyme I-Ntr is specific for NPr
      
 0.828
ascB
Cryptic 6-phospho-beta-glucosidase; Can hydrolyze salicin, cellobiose, and probably arbutin
 
   
 0.808
ascF
Beta-glucoside (arbutin/salicin/cellobiose) pts system eiicb component; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active -transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. This system is involved in arbutin, cellobiose, and salicin transport
 
   
 0.804
ptsH
Phosphohistidinoprotein-hexose phosphotransferase component of pts system (hpr); General (non sugar-specific) component of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS). This major carbohydrate active-transport system catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. The phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) is transferred to the phosphoryl carrier protein HPr by enzyme I. Phospho-HPr then transfers it to the PTS EIIA domain
   
 
 0.800
ptsG
Fused glucose-specific pts enzymes: iib component/iic component; The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (sugar PTS), a major carbohydrate active transport system, catalyzes the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitantly with their translocation across the cell membrane. The enzyme II complex composed of PtsG and Crr is involved in glucose transport . Also functions as a chemoreceptor monitoring the environment for changes in sugar concentration and an effector modulating the activity of the transcriptional repressor Mlc

yieL
Putative hydrolase yiel; Uncharacterized protein YieL; Protein involved in carbohydrate catabolic process
