KAP104 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KAP104" - Transportin or cytosolic karyopherin beta 2 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

KAP104Transportin or cytosolic karyopherin beta 2; functions in the rg-nuclear localization signal-mediated nuclear import/reimport of mRNA-binding proteins Nab2p and Hrp1p; regulates asymmetric protein synthesis in daughter cells during mitosis; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for arginine/glycine-rich nuclear localization signals (rg-NLS) and PY-NLS in cargo substrates. Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be mRNA-binding proteins. Required for nuclear transport of NAB2, HRP1/NAB4 and TFG2. Mediates docking of the importin/substrate [...] (918 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Karyopherin beta, mediates nuclear import of ribosomal proteins prior to assembly into ribosomes and import of histones H3 and H4; localizes to the nuclear pore, nucleus, and cytoplasm; exhibits genetic interactions with RAI1; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for nuclear localization signals (NLS) in cargo substrates. Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be ribosomal proteins (PubMed-9321403). Required for import of the ribbosomal assembly factor NMD3 (PubMed-12612077). May be involved in nuclear transport of YAP1 (PubMed-1127414 [...] (1113 aa)
Karyopherin/importin that interacts with the nuclear pore complex; acts as the nuclear import receptor for specific proteins, including Pdr1p, Yap1p, Ste12p, and Aft1p; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for classical and arginine/glycine- rich nuclear localization signals (cNLS and rg-NLS) in cargo substrates (PubMed-15367670). Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be ribosomal proteins and ribosome biogenesis trans- and cis-acting factors (PubMed-9182759, PubMed-9321403, PubMed-15367670). Required for nuclear transport of YAP1, NO [...] (1089 aa)
Nuclear import receptor, mediates the nuclear localization of proteins involved in mRNA-nucleus export; promotes dissociation of mRNAs from the nucleus-cytoplasm mRNA shuttling protein Npl3p; required for retrograde import of mature tRNAs; Involved in mRNA transport from nucleus to cytoplasm (972 aa)
Ran GTPase, GTP binding protein (mammalian Ranp homolog) involved in the maintenance of nuclear organization, RNA processing and transport; regulated by Srm1p, Rna1p, Yrb1p, Yrb2p, Yrp4p, Yrb30p, Cse1p and Kap95p; yeast Gsp2p homolog; GTP-binding protein involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport. Required for the import of protein into the nucleus and also for RNA export. Essential for cell viability. By analogy with Ras, Ran may be activated when GTP is exchanged for bound GDP by RCC1 and inactivated when GTP is hydrolyzed by Ran upon activation by RanGAP1 (219 aa)
Nuclear polyadenylated RNA-binding protein required for nuclear mRNA export and poly(A) tail length control; binds nuclear pore protein Mlp1p; autoregulates mRNA levels; related to human hnRNPs; nuclear localization sequence binds Kap104p; This essential protein binds to polyadenylated RNA and single-stranded DNA. It may be involved not only in RNA processing but also in transcription regulation. Believed to associate directly with nascent RNA polymerase II transcripts and remain associated during subsequent nuclear RNA processing reactions (525 aa)
Poly(A)RNA binding protein involved in nuclear mRNA export, component of the nuclear pore; ortholog of human TAP; Involved in the export of mRNA from the nucleus to the cytoplasm (599 aa)
Major karyopherin, involved in export of proteins, RNAs, and ribosomal subunits from the nucleus; exportin; Receptor for the leucine-rich nuclear export signal (NES) (1084 aa)
Nuclear transport factor (karyopherin) involved in protein transport between the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm; similar to Nmd5p, Cse1p, Lph2p, and the human cellular apoptosis susceptibility protein, CAS1; Nuclear transport factor (karyopherin) involved in protein transport between the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Required for the nuclear import of ribosomal proteins (RPL11, RPL16, RPL25, RPL31A), the poly(A)-binding protein PAB1, the HO endonuclease or the tRNA and snRNA chaperone LHP1. Indirectly involved in nuclear mRNA export through its PAB1 nuclear import activity (944 aa)
Karyopherin, responsible for nuclear import of Spt15p, Sua7p, histones H2A and H2B, and Nap1p; amino terminus shows similarity to those of other importins, particularly Cse1p; localization is primarily nuclear; Required for nuclear protein import and mediates docking of import substrate to distinct nucleoporins. Serves a receptor for nuclear localization signals. Mediates the nuclear import of TATA-binding protein (TBP) and of histones H2A and H2B (1004 aa)
Karyopherin, a carrier protein involved in nuclear import of proteins; importin beta homolog; Active in protein import into the nucleus. Its major import substrate is transcription elongation factor TFIIS (1048 aa)
