STRINGSTRING
ftsZ protein (Methylobacter tundripaludum) - STRING interaction network
"ftsZ" - Cell division protein FtsZ in Methylobacter tundripaludum
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

ftsZCell division protein FtsZ ; Essential cell division protein that forms a contractile ring structure (Z ring) at the future cell division site. The regulation of the ring assembly controls the timing and the location of cell division. One of the functions of the FtsZ ring is to recruit other cell division proteins to the septum to produce a new cell wall between the dividing cells. Binds GTP and shows GTPase activity (391 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ftsA
Cell division protein FtsA ; Cell division protein that is involved in the assembly of the Z ring. May serve as a membrane anchor for the Z ring (408 aa)
 
 
  0.999
Mettu_2488
Site-determining protein (269 aa)
     
 
  0.980
Mettu_0838
Cell division protein ZipA ; Essential cell division protein that stabilizes the FtsZ protofilaments by cross-linking them and that serves as a cytoplasmic membrane anchor for the Z ring. Also required for the recruitment to the septal ring of downstream cell division proteins (234 aa)
       
 
  0.975
minC
Probable septum site-determining protein MinC ; Cell division inhibitor that blocks the formation of polar Z ring septums. Rapidly oscillates between the poles of the cell to destabilize FtsZ filaments that have formed before they mature into polar Z rings. Prevents FtsZ polymerization (246 aa)
       
 
  0.974
Mettu_1390
Cell shape determining protein, MreB/Mrl family (347 aa)
       
 
  0.972
Mettu_2600
Cell division FtsK/SpoIIIE (759 aa)
       
 
  0.971
murC
UDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine synthetase ; Cell wall formation (480 aa)
   
 
  0.970
ftsQ
Cell division protein FtsQ ; Essential cell division protein. May link together the upstream cell division proteins, which are predominantly cytoplasmic, with the downstream cell division proteins, which are predominantly periplasmic. May control correct divisome assembly (260 aa)
   
 
  0.970
murG
Undecaprenyl-PP-MurNAc-pentapeptide-UDPGlcNAc GlcNAc transferase ; Cell wall formation. Catalyzes the transfer of a GlcNAc subunit on undecaprenyl-pyrophosphoryl-MurNAc-pentapeptide (lipid intermediate I) to form undecaprenyl-pyrophosphoryl-MurNAc- (pentapeptide)GlcNAc (lipid intermediate II) (349 aa)
 
 
  0.952
Mettu_0148
Cell division ATP-binding protein FtsE (218 aa)
       
 
  0.951
