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

creCSensory histidine kinase in two-component regulatory system with creb or phob; Member of the two-component regulatory system CreC/CreB involved in catabolic regulation. CreC may function as a membrane- associated protein kinase that phosphorylates CreB in response to environmental signals. CreC can also phosphorylate PhoB (474 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Two-component system, ompr family, catabolic regulation response regulator creb; Member of the two-component regulatory system CreC/CreB involved in catabolic regulation
Putative inner membrane protein; Inner membrane protein CreD; Tolerance to colicin E2
annotation not available
Two-component system, ompr family, phosphate regulon response regulator phob; This protein is a positive regulator for the phosphate regulon. Transcription of this operon is positively regulated by PhoB and PhoR when phosphate is limited
Negative regulator of phor/phob two-component regulator; Part of the phosphate (Pho) regulon, which plays a key role in phosphate homeostasis. Encoded together with proteins of the phosphate-specific transport (Pst) system in the polycistronic pstSCAB- phoU operon. PhoU is essential for the repression of the Pho regulon at high phosphate conditions. In this role, it may bind, possibly as a chaperone, to PhoR, PhoB or a PhoR-PhoB complex to promote dephosphorylation of phospho-PhoB, or inhibit formation of the PhoR- PhoB transitory complex. Is also part of complex networks important for [...]
Member of the two-component regulatory system BaeS/BaeR which responds to envelope stress . Activates expression of periplasmic chaperone spy in response to spheroplast formation, indole and P pili protein PapG overexpression . Activates the mdtABCD and probably the CRISPR-Cas casABCDE-ygbT-ygbF operon
Bacterial alkaline phosphatase; Belongs to the alkaline phosphatase family
Response regulator in two-component regulatory system with bass; Member of the two-component regulatory system BasS/BasR. BasR induces the transcription of the ugd, ais, arnBCADTEF and eptA-basRS loci, all involved in resistance to polymyxin (By similarity)
Member of the two-component regulatory system ArcB/ArcA. Represses a wide variety of aerobic enzymes under anaerobic conditions. Controls the resistance of E.coli to dyes; required for expression of the alkaline phosphatase and sex factor F genes; It also may be involved in the osmoregulation of envelope proteins. When activated by ArcB, it negatively regulates the expression of genes of aerobic function. Activates the transcription of the plfB operon by binding to its promoter
Two-component system, ompr family, response regulator; Member of a two-component regulatory system HprR/HprS involved in response to hydrogen peroxide Regulates the expression of at least 5 operons, cyoABCDE, hprRS, hiuH, cusRS and cusCFBA. Bifunctional regulator that acts as an activator and a repressor
