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

Gene Fusion
treRTrehalose 6-phosphate-inducible trehalose regulon transcriptional repressor; Repressor of the treBC operon. It is able to bind trehalose- 6-phosphate and trehalose (315 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Trehalose-6-phosphate hydrolase; Hydrolyzes trehalose-6-phosphate to glucose and glucose 6- phosphate. Can also very effectively hydrolyzes p-nitrophenyl-alpha-D- glucopyranoside, but it does not recognize trehalose, sucrose, maltose, isomaltose, or maltodextrins
Trehalose-specific pts enzyme: iib and 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 trehalose transport at low osmolarity
Since only maltooligosaccharides up to a chain length of 6 glucose units are actively transported through the cytoplasmic membrane via the membrane-bound complex of three proteins, MalF, MalG, and MalK, longer maltooligosaccharides must first be degraded by the periplasmic alpha-amylase, the MalS protein
Maltodextrin glucosidase; May play a role in regulating the intracellular level of maltotriose. Cleaves glucose from the reducing end of maltotriose and longer maltodextrins with a chain length of up to 7 glucose units
Dna-binding transcriptional dual regulator rbsr; Transcriptional repressor for the ribose rbsDACBK operon. RbsR binds to a region of perfect dyad symmetry spanning the rbs operon transcriptional start site. The affinity for the rbs operator is reduced by addition of ribose, consistent with ribose being the inducer of the operon
Laci family transcriptional regulator, asc operon repressor; Repressor of the asc operon. The cryptic operon is activated by the insertion of IS186 into the ascG gene
Laci family transcriptional regulator, purine nucleotide synthesis repressor; Is the main repressor of the genes involved in the de novo synthesis of purine nucleotides, regulating purB, purC, purEK, purF, purHD, purL, purMN and guaBA expression. In addition, it participates in the regulation or coregulation of genes involved in de novo pyrimidine nucleotide biosynthesis, salvage and uptake (pyrC, pyrD, carAB and codBA), and of several genes encoding enzymes necessary for nucleotide and polyamine biosynthesis (prsA, glyA, gcvTHP, speA, glnB). Binds to a 16-bp palindromic sequence locat [...]
Regulatory leader peptide for mgta; Mediates magnesium influx to the cytosol
Galactose- and fucose-inducible galactose regulon transcriptional isorepressor; Repressor of the mgl operon. Binds galactose and D-fucose as inducers. GalS binds to an operator DNA sequence within its own coding sequence (corresponding to residues 15 to 20)
Galactose-inducible d-galactose regulon transcriptional repressor; Repressor of the galactose operon. Binds galactose as an inducer
