STRINGSTRING
infB protein (Thermoproteus tenax) - STRING interaction network
infB translation initiation factor IF-2 in Thermoproteus tenax
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

infBinfB translation initiation factor IF-2; Function in general translation initiation by promoting the binding of the formylmethionine-tRNA to ribosomes. Seems to function along with eIF-2 (590 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
rpl7ae
50S ribosomal protein L7ae; Multifunctional RNA-binding protein that recognizes the K-turn motif in ribosomal RNA, the RNA component of RNase P, box H/ACA, box C/D and box C’/D’ sRNAs (150 aa)
 
  0.996
eif1a
Translation initiation factor eIF-1A; Seems to be required for maximal rate of protein biosynthesis. Enhances ribosome dissociation into subunits and stabilizes the binding of the initiator Met-tRNA(I) to 40 S ribosomal subunits (97 aa)
 
  0.995
rps2
30S ribosomal protein S2p (210 aa)
 
  0.995
rps3
30S ribosomal protein S3p; Binds the lower part of the 30S subunit head (216 aa)
     
  0.993
eif2G
Translation initiation factor eIF-2 gamma subunit (411 aa)
 
  0.993
rps5
Ribosomal protein S5p/L7e; With S4 and S12 plays an important role in translational accuracy (203 aa)
   
  0.992
rps13
30S ribosomal protein S13p; Located at the top of the head of the 30S subunit, it contacts several helices of the 16S rRNA. In the 70S ribosome it contacts the 23S rRNA (bridge B1a) and protein L5 of the 50S subunit (bridge B1b), connecting the 2 subunits; these bridges are implicated in subunit movement (154 aa)
     
  0.988
rps10
Ribosomal protein S10p; Involved in the binding of tRNA to the ribosomes (106 aa)
     
  0.986
rps19p
30S ribosomal protein S19p; Protein S19 forms a complex with S13 that binds strongly to the 16S ribosomal RNA (160 aa)
   
  0.981
rpl2
50S ribosomal protein L2p; 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 (243 aa)
