STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

cusBCopper/silver efflux system, membrane fusion protein; Part of a cation efflux system that mediates resistance to copper and silver. (407 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
cusC
Copper/silver efflux system, outer membrane component; Forms pores that allow passive diffusion of cations across the outer membrane. Part of a cation efflux system that mediates resistance to copper and silver. In pathogenic strains it allows the bacteria to invade brain microvascular endothelial cells (BMEC) thus allowing it to cross the blood-brain barrier and cause neonatal meningitis.
 
 0.999
cusF
Periplasmic copper- and silver-binding protein; Part of a cation efflux system that mediates resistance to copper and silver. Binds one copper per polypeptide.
 
 0.999
cusA
Copper/silver efflux system, membrane component; Part of a cation efflux system that mediates resistance to copper and silver; Belongs to the resistance-nodulation-cell division (RND) (TC 2.A.6) family.
 0.999
cusS
Copper-sensing histidine kinase in two-component regulatory system with CusR; Member of the two-component regulatory system CusS/CusR involved in response to copper and silver. Acts as a copper/silver ion sensor. Activates CusR by phosphorylation.
 
  
 0.973
cusR
Response regulator in two-component regulatory system with CusS; Member of the two-component regulatory system CusS/CusR involved in response to copper and silver. Activates the expression of cusCFBA, hiuH and plasmid pRJ1004 gene pcoE in response to increasing levels of copper or silver ions. Can also increase the basal-level expression of copper resistance gene operon pcoABCD.
 
  
 0.967
tolC
Transport channel; Outer membrane channel, which is required for the function of several efflux systems such as AcrAB-TolC, AcrEF-TolC, EmrAB-TolC and MacAB-TolC. These systems are involved in export of antibiotics and other toxic compounds from the cell. TolC is also involved in import of colicin E1 into the cells.
  
 
 0.878
cueO
Multicopper oxidase (laccase); Probably involved in periplasmic detoxification of copper by oxidizing Cu(+) to Cu(2+) and thus preventing its uptake into the cytoplasm. Possesses phenoloxidase and ferroxidase activities and might be involved in the production of polyphenolic compounds and the prevention of oxidative damage in the periplasm.
   
  
 0.817
acrA
Multidrug efflux system; AcrA-AcrB-AcrZ-TolC is a drug efflux protein complex with broad substrate specificity that uses the proton motive force to export substrates. This subunit may act as an adapter protein that links AcrB and TolC stably together. It is elongated in shape, being long enough to span the periplasm.
      
 0.810
macA
Macrolide transporter membrane fusion protein (MFP) component; Part of the tripartite efflux system MacAB-TolC. MacA stimulates the ATPase activity of MacB by promoting the closed ATP- bound state of MacB, increases the capacity of MacB to bind macrolides such as erythromycin, and provides a physical link between MacB and TolC. When overexpressed, the system confers resistance against macrolides composed of 14- and 15-membered lactones but no or weak resistance against 16-membered ones. In addition, MacA binds tightly rough-core lipopolysaccharide (R-LPS), suggesting that the system co [...]
      
 0.807
cueR
Copper-responsive regulon transcriptional regulator; Regulates the transcription of the copA and cueO genes. It detects cytoplasmic copper stress and activates transcription in response to increasing copper concentrations.
