STRINGSTRING
CHS2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CHS2" - Chitin synthase II 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

CHS2Chitin 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)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
HOF1
Bud neck-localized, SH3 domain-containing protein required for cytokinesis; regulates actomyosin ring dynamics and septin localization; interacts with the formins, Bni1p and Bnr1p, and with Cyk3p, Vrp1p, and Bni5p; Throughout most of the cell cycle it forms a double ring that coincides with the septins. After the onset of mitosis, forms a ring-like structure which colocalizes with the medial actin ring. Mediates cytoskeletal rearrangements required for cytokinesis. In conjunction with the medial actin ring exhibits contraction-like action (669 aa)

CHS3
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)

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)
     
 
  0.927
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)
   
   
  0.901
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)
       
 
  0.873
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)
       
 
  0.866
MYO1
Type II myosin heavy chain, required for wild-type cytokinesis and cell separation; localizes to the actomyosin ring; binds to myosin light chains Mlc1p and Mlc2p through its IQ1 and IQ2 motifs respectively; Required for cell division (1928 aa)
     
 
  0.839
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)

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)
     
 
  0.825
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)
