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
derGTPase Der; GTPase that plays an essential role in the late steps of ribosome biogenesis (452 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
50S ribosomal protein L15; Binds to the 23S rRNA
50S ribosomal protein L1; Binds directly to 23S rRNA. The L1 stalk is quite mobile in the ribosome, and is involved in E site tRNA release
Bifunctional pantoate ligase/cytidylate kinase; Catalyzes the condensation of pantoate with beta-alanine in an ATP-dependent reaction via a pantoyl-adenylate intermediate; In the C-terminal section; belongs to the cytidylate kinase family. Type 1 subfamily
PFAM: ribosomal protein L17; KEGG: amr:AM1_1252 50S ribosomal protein L17
50S ribosomal protein L20; Binds directly to 23S ribosomal RNA and is necessary for the in vitro assembly process of the 50S ribosomal subunit. It is not involved in the protein synthesizing functions of that subunit
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
50S ribosomal protein L13; This protein is one of the early assembly proteins of the 50S ribosomal subunit, although it is not seen to bind rRNA by itself. It is important during the early stages of 50S assembly
Glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of an acyl group from acyl- phosphate (acyl-PO(4)) to glycerol-3-phosphate (G3P) to form lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). This enzyme utilizes acyl-phosphate as fatty acyl donor, but not acyl-CoA or acyl-ACP
Elongation factor 4; Required for accurate and efficient protein synthesis under certain stress conditions. May act as a fidelity factor of the translation reaction, by catalyzing a one-codon backward translocation of tRNAs on improperly translocated ribosomes. Back- translocation proceeds from a post-translocation (POST) complex to a pre-translocation (PRE) complex, thus giving elongation factor G a second chance to translocate the tRNAs correctly. Binds to ribosomes in a GTP-dependent manner
Ribosomal RNA small subunit methyltransferase H; Specifically methylates the N4 position of cytidine in position 1402 (C1402) of 16S rRNA
