rpsR protein (Klebsiella pneumoniae) - STRING interaction network
"rpsR" - 30S ribosomal protein S18 in Klebsiella pneumoniae
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
rpsR30S ribosomal protein S18; Binds as a heterodimer with protein S6 to the central domain of the 16S rRNA, where it helps stabilize the platform of the 30S subunit (75 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
30S ribosomal protein S6; Binds together with S18 to 16S ribosomal RNA (131 aa)
50S ribosomal protein L9; Binds to the 23S rRNA (149 aa)
30S ribosomal protein S5; Located at the back of the 30S subunit body where it stabilizes the conformation of the head with respect to the body; Belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uS5 family (167 aa)
50S ribosomal protein L17; Is a component of the macrolide binding site in the peptidyl transferase center; Derived by automated computational analysis using gene prediction method- Protein Homology (128 aa)
30S ribosomal protein S12; Interacts with and stabilizes bases of the 16S rRNA that are involved in tRNA selection in the A site and with the mRNA backbone. Located at the interface of the 30S and 50S subunits, it traverses the body of the 30S subunit contacting proteins on the other side and probably holding the rRNA structure together. The combined cluster of proteins S8, S12 and S17 appears to hold together the shoulder and platform of the 30S subunit (124 aa)
30S ribosomal protein S14; Located in the peptidyl transferase center and involved in assembly of 30S ribosome subunit; similar to what is observed with proteins L31 and L33, some proteins in this family contain CXXC motifs that are involved in zinc binding; if two copies are present in a genome, then the duplicated copy appears to have lost the zinc-binding motif and is instead regulated by zinc; the proteins in this group do not appear to have the zinc-binding motif; Derived by automated computational analysis using gene prediction method- Protein Homology (101 aa)
30S ribosomal protein S3; Binds the lower part of the 30S subunit head. Binds mRNA in the 70S ribosome, positioning it for translation (232 aa)
30S ribosomal protein S8; One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, it binds directly to 16S rRNA central domain where it helps coordinate assembly of the platform of the 30S subunit (130 aa)
50S ribosomal protein L22; The globular domain of the protein is located near the polypeptide exit tunnel on the outside of the subunit, while an extended beta-hairpin is found that lines the wall of the exit tunnel in the center of the 70S ribosome (110 aa)
50S ribosomal protein L2; One of the primary rRNA binding proteins. Required for association of the 30S and 50S subunits to form the 70S ribosome, for tRNA binding and peptide bond formation. It has been suggested to have peptidyltransferase activity; this is somewhat controversial. Makes several contacts with the 16S rRNA in the 70S ribosome (273 aa)
