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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
srkAStress response kinase A; A protein kinase that (auto)phosphorylates on Ser and Thr residues. Probably acts to suppress the effects of stress linked to accumulation of reactive oxygen species. Protects cells from stress by antagonizing the MazE-MazF TA module, probably indirectly as it has not been seen to phosphorylate MazE, MazF or MazG. Probably involved in the extracytoplasmic stress response (328 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Thiol:disulfide interchange protein DsbA; Required for disulfide bond formation in some periplasmic proteins such as PhoA or OmpA. Acts by transferring its disulfide bond to other proteins and is reduced in the process. DsbA is reoxidized by DsbB. Required for pilus biogenesis. PhoP-regulated transcription is redox-sensitive, being activated when the periplasm becomes more reducing (deletion of dsbA/dsbB, treatment with dithiothreitol). MgrB acts between DsbA/DsbB and PhoP/PhoQ in this pathway; Belongs to the thioredoxin family. DsbA subfamily
annotation not available
DNA polymerase I; In addition to polymerase activity, this DNA polymerase exhibits 3'-5' and 5'-3' exonuclease activity. It is able to utilize nicked circular duplex DNA as a template and can unwind the parental DNA strand from its template
Bifunctional: aspartokinase I (N-terminal); homoserine dehydrogenase I (C-terminal); Protein involved in threonine biosynthetic process, methionine biosynthetic process and homoserine biosynthetic process
Bifunctional aspartokinase/homoserine dehydrogenase 2; Aspartokinase II and homoserine dehydrogenase II; Protein involved in methionine biosynthetic process and homoserine biosynthetic process
DNA polymerase II; Thought to be involved in DNA repair and/or mutagenesis. Its processivity is enhanced by the beta sliding clamp (dnaN) and clamp loader
Chemotaxis protein CheA; Involved in the transmission of sensory signals from the chemoreceptors to the flagellar motors. CheA is autophosphorylated; it can transfer its phosphate group to either CheB or CheY
Uncharacterized protein YihF; Putative GTP-binding protein; To E.coli YdgA and H.influenzae HI_1236
Modulator of FtsH protease YccA; Negatively modulates the activity of the FtsH protease for membrane substrates. Overexpression or stabilizing YccA counteracts the FtsH-mediated degradation of SecY when the SecYEG preprotein translocator is jammed; Belongs to the BI1 family
Periplasmic protein CpxP; Acts as an auxiliary protein in the Cpx two-component envelope stress response system, helping modulate the Cpx response systems response to some inducers. Binds the periplasmic domain of sensor histidine kinase CpxA, inhibiting induction of the Cpx envelope stress response in the absence of inducer; overexpression decreases Cpx pathway activity. Some periplasmic stimulii (shown for P pili subunit PapE and probably 0.3 M NaCl) increase CpxP's susceptibility to DegP, leading to CpxP degradation, inducing the Cpx pathway. Aids in combating extracytoplasmic prote [...]
