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

Predicted Functional Partners:
Anaerobic c4-dicarboxylate transporter dcub; Responsible for the transport of C4-dicarboxylates from the periplasm across the inner membrane
Toxic upf0083 family protein inhibitor of 70s ribosome formation; Toxic component of a type II toxin-antitoxin (TA) system. Binds to 50S ribosomal subunits, preventing them from associating with 30S subunits to form 70S ribosomes and reducing polysomes. It does not cause ribosomes to dissociate however. The antibiotic paromomycin blocks the anti-association activity of RatA. Overexpression results in inhibition of growth in liquid cultures, and in a decrease in protein translation. The other gene of this operon, ratB, is not the cognate antitoxin in this strain; in CFT073 however it do [...]
Two-component system, citb family, sensor histidine kinase dcus; Member of the two-component regulatory system DcuR/DcuS. Involved in the C4-dicarboxylate-stimulated regulation of the genes encoding the anaerobic fumarate respiratory system (frdABCD; nuoAN; dcuB; dcuC; sdhCDAB; etc.). Weakly regulates the aerobic C4- dicarboxylate transporter dctA. Activates DcuR by phosphorylation
Anaerobic class i fumarate hydratase (fumarase b); Catalyzes the reversible hydration of fumarate to (S)-malate. Functions in the generation of fumarate for use as an anaerobic electron acceptor. To a lesser extent, also displays D-tartrate dehydratase activity, but is not able to convert (R)-malate, L-tartrate or meso-tartrate. Is required for anaerobic growth on D-tartrate
Thiamine pyrimidine pyrophosphate hydrolase; Catalyzes the hydrolysis of 4-amino-2-methyl-5- hydroxymethylpyrimidine pyrophosphate (HMP-PP) to 4-amino-2-methyl-5- hydroxymethylpyrimidine phosphate (HMP-P). Can also hydrolyze other substrates such as MeO-HMP-PP and 4-amino-2-trifluoromethyl 5- hydroxymethylpyrimidine pyrophosphate (CF3-HMP-PP) to give MeO-HMP-P and 4-amino-2-trifluoromethyl-5-hydroxymethylpyrimidine phosphate. This hydrolysis generates resistance to the antibiotics (bacimethrin, CF3- HMP) by reducing the formation of their toxic forms, 2'-methoxythiamin pyrophosphate (M [...]
