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

mscKMechanosensitive channel protein, intermediate conductance, K+ regulated; Mechanosensitive channel that opens in response to membrane tension and specific ionic conditions. Requires high concentrations of external K(+), NH(4)(+), Rb(+) or Cs(+) to gate. May participate in the regulation of osmotic pressure changes within the cell, although it does not appear to have a major role in osmolarity regulation. Forms an ion channel of 1.0 nanosiemens conductance. The channel can remain active for between 30 seconds and over 3 minutes; it does not desensitize upon extended pressure. Its activi [...] (1120 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mechanosensitive channel protein, miniconductance; Mechanosensitive channel of miniconductance that confers protection against mild hypoosmotic shock. Overexpression confers protection against severe shocks.
Mechanosensitive channel protein, high conductance; Mechanosensitive channel that opens in response to stretch forces in the membrane lipid bilayer. Forms a nonselective ion channel with a conductance of about 4 nanosiemens. Participates in the regulation of osmotic pressure changes within the cell. Opens at a pressure just below that which would cause cell disruption and death. The force required to trigger channel opening depends on the membrane lipids composition.
Mechanosensitive channel protein, miniconductance; Mechanosensitive channel that protects cells against hypoosmotic stress when highly overexpressed. Gates spontaneously in response to increased membrane tension.
Translocation and assembly module for autotransporter export, inner membrane subunit; Part of the translocation and assembly module (TAM) autotransporter assembly complex, which functions in translocation of autotransporters across the outer membrane. In reconstituted TAM this subunit (Ag43, AC P39180) is not necessary for substrate penetration in the outer membrane. Substrate binding to TamA moves its POTRA domains about 30 Angstroms into the periplasm, which would deform either the outer membrane or TamB and may provide force to reset TAM.
Endoribonuclease; 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. Can also process other RNA species, such as RNAI, a molecule that controls the replication of ColE1 plasmid, and the cell division inhibitor DicF- RNA. It initiates the decay of RNAs by cutting them internally near their 5'-end. It is able to remove poly(A) tails by an endonucleolytic process. Required to initiate rRNA degradation during both starvation and quality control; ac [...]
DUF1097 family inner membrane protein.
Transcriptional repressor; Potential regulator protein for the acrAB genes.
Lipoprotein involved with copper homeostasis and adhesion; Involved in copper homeostasis, could be involved in both copper efflux and the delivery of copper to copper-dependent enzymes. Required for efficient binding of stationary phase cells to hydrophobic surfaces, part of the process of biofilm formation. Functions during envelope stress responses; when overproduced induces degP through the activation of the two-component envelope stress response system CpxA/CpxR. DegP induction seems to require membrane anchoring of this protein. Structural changes and/or interaction of the CXXC m [...]
HCP oxidoreductase, NADH-dependent; NADH oxidoreductase acting in concert with HCP.
Anaerobic C4-dicarboxylate transport; Responsible for the transport of C4-dicarboxylates during anaerobic growth; Belongs to the DcuC/DcuD transporter (TC 2.A.61) family.
