STRINGSTRING
minE protein (Methylobacter tundripaludum) - STRING interaction network
"minE" - Cell division topological specificity factor 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

minECell division topological specificity factor ; Prevents the cell division inhibition by proteins MinC and MinD at internal division sites while permitting inhibition at polar sites. This ensures cell division at the proper site by restricting the formation of a division septum at the midpoint of the long axis of the cell (88 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mettu_2488
Site-determining protein (269 aa)
 
 
  0.999
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)
 
   
  0.992
rne
Ribonuclease E ; Endoribonuclease that plays a central role in RNA processing and decay. Required for the maturation of 5S and 16S rRNAs and the majority of tRNAs. Also involved in the degradation of most mRNAs (819 aa)
     
 
  0.822
ftsW
Cell division protein FtsW ; Essential cell division protein. Transports lipid-linked peptidoglycan precursors from the inner to the outer leaflet of the cytoplasmic membrane (386 aa)
   
   
  0.797
ftsZ
Cell 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)
           
  0.794
Mettu_1529
Peptidoglycan glycosyltransferase (592 aa)
         
  0.768
Mettu_2486
Putative uncharacterized protein (65 aa)
              0.758
Mettu_2829
30S ribosomal protein S1 ; Binds mRNA; thus facilitating recognition of the initiation point. It is needed to translate mRNA with a short Shine-Dalgarno (SD) purine-rich sequence (553 aa)
   
 
 
  0.732
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)
           
  0.696
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)
       
 
  0.670
