STRINGSTRING
CHS3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CHS3" - Chitin synthase III, catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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:
some 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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

CHS3Chitin 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)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CHS5
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)
       
 
  0.996
CHS6
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)
       
 
  0.995
SKT5
Activator 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)
   
 
  0.980
CHS2
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)
     
0.930
CHS7
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)
     
 
  0.929
QRI1
UDP-N-acetylglucosamine pyrophosphorylase, catalyzes the formation of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc), which is important in cell wall biosynthesis, protein N-glycosylation, and GPI anchor biosynthesis (477 aa)
     
 
  0.914
FKS1
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)
     
 
  0.911
CDA1
Chitin deacetylase, together with Cda2p involved in the biosynthesis ascospore wall component, chitosan; required for proper rigidity of the ascospore wall; Hydrolyzes the N-acetamido groups of N-acetyl-D- glucosamine residues in chitin (301 aa)
   
   
  0.889
CHS1
Chitin synthase I, requires activation from zymogenic form in order to catalyze the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin; required for repairing the chitin septum during cytokinesis; transcription activated by mating factor; Septum formation and repair, especially under certain adverse conditions (1131 aa)
     
 
0.877
GAS1
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)
