According to STRING analysis, Dm-Csp1 is predicted to functionally interact with a variety of proteins including those (rpoB, rpoC, and rpoA, and rpoZ, RNA polymerase subunits) involved in transcription and a polyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase (pnp) potentially playing a role in mRNA degradation (Figure 7).
