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
aidBPutative acyl-CoA dehydrogenase AidB; Part of the adaptive DNA-repair response to alkylating agents. Could prevent alkylation damage by protecting DNA and destroying alkylating agents that have yet to reach their DNA target. Binds to double-stranded DNA with a preference for a DNA region that includes its own promoter. Shows weak isovaleryl-CoA dehydrogenase activity in vitro (541 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
DNA-3-methyladenine glycosylase 2; Hydrolysis of the deoxyribose N-glycosidic bond to excise 3-methyladenine, 3-methylguanine, 7-methylguanine, O2- methylthymine, and O2-methylcytosine from the damaged DNA polymer formed by alkylation lesions
Methylated-DNA--protein-cysteine methyltransferase; Involved in the cellular defense against the biological effects of O6-methylguanine (O6-MeG) and O4-methylthymine (O4-MeT) in DNA. Repairs the methylated nucleobase in DNA by stoichiometrically transferring the methyl group to a cysteine residue in the enzyme. This is a suicide reaction: the enzyme is irreversibly inactivated
Alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase AlkB; Dioxygenase that repairs alkylated DNA and RNA containing 3-methylcytosine or 1-methyladenine by oxidative demethylation. Has highest activity towards 3-methylcytosine. Has lower activity towards alkylated DNA containing ethenoadenine, and no detectable activity towards 1-methylguanine or 3-methylthymine. Accepts double-stranded and single-stranded substrates. Requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron. Provides extensive resistance to alkylating agents such as MMS and DMS (SN2 agents), but not to MMNG and MNU (SN1 agents)
Bifunctional transcriptional activator/DNA repair enzyme Ada; Involved in the adaptive response to alkylation damage in DNA caused by alkylating agents. Repairs O6-methylguanine (O6- MeG) and O4-methylthymine (O4-MeT) in DNA. Repairs the methylated nucleobase in DNA by stoichiometrically transferring the methyl group to a cysteine residue in the enzyme (Cys-321). Also specifically repairs the Sp diastereomer of DNA methylphosphotriester lesions by the same mechanism, although the methyl transfer occurs onto a different cysteine residue (Cys-38). Cannot demethylate the other diastereome [...]
DNA base-flipping protein; Involved in DNA damage recognition. Binds DNA containing O(6)-methylguanine and larger O(6)-alkylguanine adducts, and to double-stranded DNA that contains an AP (apurinic/apyrimidinic) site. Binds to the damaged base and flips the base out of the DNA duplex into an extrahelical conformation, which allows processing by repair proteins. Works in partnership with the nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway to enhance the repair of the O(6)-alkylguanine adducts larger than the methyl adduct. Also prevents methyl-directed mismatch repair (MMR)-mediated attack of [...]
Putative glutaminase; Protein involved in cellular amino acid catabolic process
Glutamate decarboxylase alpha; Converts glutamate to gamma-aminobutyrate (GABA), consuming one intracellular proton in the reaction. The gad system helps to maintain a near-neutral intracellular pH when cells are exposed to extremely acidic conditions. The ability to survive transit through the acidic conditions of the stomach is essential for successful colonization of the mammalian host by commensal and pathogenic bacteria
Fatty acid oxidation complex subunit alpha; Catalyzes the formation of a hydroxyacyl-CoA by addition of water on enoyl-CoA. Also exhibits 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA epimerase and 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase activities. Strongly involved in the anaerobic degradation of long and medium-chain fatty acids in the presence of nitrate and weakly involved in the aerobic degradation of long-chain fatty acids
Curved DNA-binding protein; DNA-binding protein that preferentially recognizes a curved DNA sequence. It is probably a functional analog of DnaJ; displays overlapping activities with DnaJ, but functions under different conditions, probably acting as a molecular chaperone in an adaptive response to environmental stresses other than heat shock. Lacks autonomous chaperone activity; binds native substrates and targets them for recognition by DnaK. Its activity is inhibited by the binding of CbpM
Probable pyruvate-flavodoxin oxidoreductase; Oxidoreductase required for the transfer of electrons from pyruvate to flavodoxin
