SCO2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SCO2" - Protein anchored to the mitochondrial inner membrane, similar to Sco1p and may have a redundant function with Sco1p in delivery of copper to cytochrome c oxidase 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

SCO2Protein anchored to the mitochondrial inner membrane, similar to Sco1p and may have a redundant function with Sco1p in delivery of copper to cytochrome c oxidase; interacts with Cox2p; Acts as a copper chaperone, transporting copper to the Cu(A) site on the cytochrome c oxidase subunit II (COX2) (301 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein required for delivery of copper to Cox1p; mitochondrial inner membrane protein; association with mitochondrial ribosomes suggests that copper delivery may occur during translation of Cox1p; Exerts its effect at some terminal stage of cytochrome c oxidase synthesis, probably by being involved in the insertion of the copper B into subunit I (300 aa)
Subunit II of cytochrome c oxidase, which is the terminal member of the mitochondrial inner membrane electron transport chain; one of three mitochondrially-encoded subunits; Cytochrome c oxidase is the component of the respiratory chain that catalyzes the reduction of oxygen to water. Subunits 1- 3 form the functional core of the enzyme complex. Subunit 2 transfers the electrons from cytochrome c via its binuclear copper A center to the bimetallic center of the catalytic subunit 1 (251 aa)
Heme A-farnesyltransferase, catalyzes the first step in the conversion of protoheme to the heme A prosthetic group required for cytochrome c oxidase activity; human ortholog is associated with mitochondrial disorders; Converts protoheme IX and farnesyl diphosphate to heme O (462 aa)
Protein required for the hydroxylation of heme O to form heme A, which is an essential prosthetic group for cytochrome c oxidase; Required for the assembly of yeast cytochrome oxidase. Involved in the biosynthesis of heme A and the initial step in this pathway, the hydroxylation of heme O, is thought to be catalyzed by a three-component mono-oxygenase consisting of COX15, ferredoxin and ferredoxin reductase (486 aa)
Mitochondrial inner membrane protein required for assembly of cytochrome c oxidase (complex IV); associates with complex IV assembly intermediates and complex III/complex IV supercomplexes; similar to human SURF1 involved in Leigh Syndrome; Required for efficient assembly of cytochrome c oxidase in the mitochondrial inner membrane. Involved in a step that couples MSS51-COX14-dependent regulation of COX1 translation to early steps of cytochrome c oxidase assembly (389 aa)
Protein required for cytochrome c oxidase assembly, located in the cytosol and mitochondrial intermembrane space; putative copper metallochaperone that delivers copper to cytochrome c oxidase; contains twin cysteine-x9-cysteine motifs; Required for the assembly of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase (98 aa)
Cu(+2)-transporting P-type ATPase, required for export of copper from the cytosol into an extracytosolic compartment; has similarity to human proteins involved in Menkes and Wilsons diseases; Probably involved in copper transport and in the regulation of cellular copper level. Retrieves copper from the metallochaperone ATX1 and incorporates it into trans-Golgi vesicles (1004 aa)
Mitochondrial integral inner membrane protein involved in membrane insertion of C-terminus of Cox2p, interacts genetically and physically with Cox18p; deletion mutant sensitive to the anti-Pneumocystis carinii drug pentamidine; Probably involved in mitochondrial export. Confers resistance to the anti-pneumocystis carinii drug pentamidine. May act by the removal of pentamidine, or its damage targets, from the matrix by an active-transport mechanism (423 aa)
Copper metallochaperone that transfers copper to Sco1p and Cox11p for eventual delivery to cytochrome c oxidase; contains twin cysteine-x9-cysteine motifs; Copper chaperone for cytochrome c oxidase (COX). Binds two copper ions and deliver them to the Cu(A) site of COX (69 aa)
Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to both the cytoplasm and nucleus and is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS; YMR244C-A is not an essential gene; Involved in the maturation of the mitochondrial respiratory chain complex IV subunit MT-CO2/COX2. Thereby, may regulate early steps of complex IV assembly. Mitochondrial respiratory chain complex IV or cytochrome c oxidase is the component of the respiratory chain that catalyzes the transfer of electrons from intermembrane space cytochrome c to molecular oxygen in th [...] (104 aa)
