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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Predicted Functional Partners:
Rv3802c, (MTV026.07c), len: 336 aa. Probable conserved membrane protein, with a N-terminal signal sequence followed by Pro-rich region. Equivalent to Q9CDB3|ML0099 hypothetical protein from Mycobacterium leprae (336 aa) FASTA scores: opt: 1759, E(): 1.1e-85,(75.5% identity in 335 aa overlap). A core mycobacterial gene; conserved in mycobacterial strains (See Marmiesse et al., 2004). Predicted to be an outer membrane protein (See Song et al., 2008).
Immunogenic protein Mpt64 (antigen Mpt64/MPB64); Rv1980c, (MT2032, MTCY39.39), len: 228 aa. Mpt64 (alternate gene name: mpb64), immunogenic protein (alternate gene name: mpb64) (see citations below),identical to MPT64|MPB64 from Mycobacterium bovis (228 aa). Similar to Rv3036c|MTV012.51c from Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Exported protein containing a N-terminal signal sequence: see notes below about proteomics. Predicted possible vaccine candidate (See Zvi et al.,2008).
Possible hydrolase; Rv0045c, (MTCY21D4.08c), len: 298 aa. Possible hydrolase, showing similarity with others. Also similar to Mycobacterium tuberculosis proteins Rv3473c, Rv1123c,Rv1938, Rv3617, Rv3670, etc.
10 kDa culture filtrate antigen EsxB (LHP) (CFP10); A secreted protein. Acts as a strong host (human) T-cell antigen. Involved in translocation of bacteria from the host (human) phagolysosome to the host cytoplasm. Might serve as a chaperone to prevent uncontrolled membrane lysis by its partner EsxA; native protein binds poorly to artificial liposomes in the absence or presence of EsxA. EsxA and EsxA-EsxB are cytotoxic to pneumocytes. EsxB (and EsxA-EsxB but not EsxA alone) activates human neutrophils; EsxB transiently induces host (human) intracellular Ca(2+) mobility in a dose-depend [...]
Rv1592c, (MTCY336.12), len: 446 aa. Conserved hypothetical protein, some similarity to Q49629|B1170_F1_46 from Mycobacterium leprae (132 aa), FASTA results: opt: 332, E(): 4.5e-14, (56.3% identity in 87 aa overlap). Nearly identical to truncated Mycobacterium bovis BCG protein (148 aa) AF041819|AF041819_11; Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Lipase family.
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase/mycolyltransferase Ag85B; The antigen 85 proteins (FbpA, FbpB, FbpC) are responsible for the high affinity of mycobacteria for fibronectin, a large adhesive glycoprotein, which facilitates the attachment of M.tuberculosis to murine alveolar macrophages (AMs). They also help to maintain the integrity of the cell wall by catalyzing the transfer of mycolic acids to cell wall arabinogalactan and through the synthesis of alpha,alpha- trehalose dimycolate (TDM, cord factor). They catalyze the transfer of a mycoloyl residue from one molecule of alpha,alpha-treha [...]
Probable transcriptional regulatory protein (probably LysR-family); Positively regulates the expression of the exporter LysE and represses its own expression. Activity requires the presence of a coinducer, lysine or histidine. Acts by binding to lysG-lysE promoter region. Also up-regulates the expression of ppsB, ppsC and ppsD, by binding to the upstream region of ppsB.
Rv3724A, (MTV025.072), len: 80 aa. Probable cut5a,truncated cutinase precursor, similar to N-terminal end of others e.g. Q9KK87 serine esterase cutinase from Mycobacterium avium (220 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 202, E(): 1.5e-06, (56.45% identity in 62 aa overlap); Q9XB09|RVD2-RV1758 protein (fragment) from Mycobacterium bovis BCG (143 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 200, E(): 1.5e-06,(61.4% identity in 57 aa overlap); and Q00298|CUTI_BOTCI|CUTA cutinase precursor from Botrytis cinerea (Botryotinia fuckeliana) (202 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 108, E(): 2.2, (40.4% identity in 52 aa overlap). Also high [...]
Ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase subunit beta nrdF1; Provides the precursors necessary for DNA synthesis. Catalyzes the biosynthesis of deoxyribonucleotides from the corresponding ribonucleotides (By similarity). Two genes for this protein are present in M.tuberculosis; this is thought to not be the active form. When coexpressed in E.coli with nrdE the 2 proteins do not complement a temperature-sensitive E.coli mutant, whereas the other gene (nrdF2) does complement; Belongs to the ribonucleoside diphosphate reductase small chain family.
Rv1263, (MTCY50.19c), len: 462 aa. Probable amiB2,amidase. Similar to G1001278 hypothetical 54.3 kDa protein (506 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 767, E(): 7.6e-40, (32.8% identity in 461 aa overlap), also similar to G580673 rhodococcus enantiose lective amidase gene (462 aa), FASTA scores, opt: 668, E(): 7.4e-34, (33.5% identity in 484 aa overlap) also to NYLA_PSES8|P13398 6-aminohexanoate-cyclic-dimer hydrolase (492 aa), FASTA scores opt: 543, E(): 3.1e-26, (33.5% identity in 493 aa overlap).
