SKT5 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SKT5" - Activator of Chs3p (chitin synthase III), recruits Chs3p to the bud neck via interaction with Bni4p in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 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
protein homology

SKT5Activator of Chs3p (chitin synthase III), recruits Chs3p to the bud neck via interaction with Bni4p; has similarity to Shc1p, which activates Chs3p during sporulation; Possible role in protoplast regeneration and killer toxin of K.lactis (PGKL) resistance (696 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Chitin synthase III, catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin; required for synthesis of the majority of cell wall chitin, the chitin ring during bud emergence, and spore wall chitosan; Appears to be responsible for the synthesis of the majority of the chitin found in the cell wall periphery. It is involved in the synthesis of the chitin ring that forms in the cell wall just before bud emergence. This ring remains at the base of the bud as the bud grows and ultimately forms part of the bud scar marking the division site on the mother cell. Also catalyzes the syn [...] (1165 aa)
Targeting subunit for Glc7p protein phosphatase, localized to the bud neck, required for localization of chitin synthase III to the bud neck via interaction with the chitin synthase III regulatory subunit Skt5p (892 aa)
ER quality-control lectin; integral subunit of the HRD ligase; binds to glycans with terminal alpha-1,6 linked mannose on misfolded N-glycosylated proteins and participates in targeting proteins to ERAD; member of the OS-9 protein family; Lectin involved in the quality control of the secretory pathway. As a member of the endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation lumenal (ERAD-L) surveillance system, targets misfolded endoplasmic reticulum lumenal glycoproteins for degradation. The recognition of targets is N-glycan specific (542 aa)
Chitin synthase II; catalyzes transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin upon activation of zymogenic form; required for chitin synthesis in the primary septum during cytokinesis; localization regulated by Cdk1p during mitosis; Essential for septum formation and cell division. CHS2 is required for maintaining normal cell morphology (963 aa)
Component of the exomer complex, which also contains Csh6p, Bch1p, Bch2p, and Bud7p and is involved in export of selected proteins, such as chitin synthase Chs3p, from the Golgi to the plasma membrane; Component of the CHS5/6 complex which mediates export of specific cargo proteins, including chitin synthase CHS3. Also involved in targeting FUS1 to sites of polarized growth (671 aa)
Member of the ChAPs family of proteins (Chs5p-Arf1p-binding proteins- Bch1p, Bch2p, Bud7p, Chs6p), that forms the exomer complex with Chs5p to mediate export of specific cargo proteins, including Chs3p, from the Golgi to the plasma membrane; Member of the CHS5-ARF1P-binding proteins (CHAPS) which mediates export of specific cargo proteins, including chitin synthase CHS3 (746 aa)
Protein of unknown function, involved in chitin biosynthesis by regulating Chs3p export from the ER; Chaperone required for the export of the chitin synthase CHS3 from the endoplasmic reticulum (316 aa)
Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase, functionally redundant with alternate catalytic subunit Gsc2p; binds to regulatory subunit Rho1p; involved in cell wall synthesis and maintenance; localizes to sites of cell wall remodeling; Alternate catalytic subunit of the 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (GS). Synthesizes 1,3-beta-glucan, a major structural component of the yeast cell wall. Involved in cell wall synthesis, maintenance and cell wall remodeling (1876 aa)
Component of the septin ring that is required for cytokinesis; septins are GTP-binding proteins that assemble into rod-like hetero-oligomers that can associate with other rods to form filaments; septin rings at the mother-bud neck act as scaffolds for recruiting cell division factors and as barriers to prevent diffusion of specific proteins between mother and daughter cells; Septins are GTPases involved in cytokinesis that assemble early in the cell cycle as a patch at the incipient bud site and form a ring approximate 15 minutes before bud emergence, which transforms into an hour-glas [...] (407 aa)
Beta-1,3-glucanosyltransferase, required for cell wall assembly and also has a role in transcriptional silencing; localizes to the cell surface via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; also found at the nuclear periphery; Splits internally a 1,3-beta-glucan molecule and transfers the newly generated reducing end (the donor) to the non- reducing end of another 1,3-beta-glucan molecule (the acceptor) forming a 1,3-beta linkage, resulting in the elongation of 1,3- beta-glucan chains in the cell wall. Involved in cell wall biosynthesis and morphogenesis (559 aa)
