STRINGSTRING
BAP2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"BAP2" - High-affinity leucine permease, functions as a branched-chain amino acid permease involved in the uptake of leucine, isoleucine and valine 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

BAP2High-affinity leucine permease, functions as a branched-chain amino acid permease involved in the uptake of leucine, isoleucine and valine; contains 12 predicted transmembrane domains; Permease for leucine, valine and isoleucine. Also transports cysteine, methionine, phenyalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan (609 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GCN4
bZIP transcriptional activator of amino acid biosynthetic genes; activator responds to amino acid starvation; expression is tightly regulated at both the transcriptional and translational levels; Is a transcription factor that is responsible for the activation of more than 30 genes required for amino acid or for purine biosynthesis in response to amino acid or purine starvation. Binds and recognize the DNA sequence- 5’-TGA[CG]TCA- 3’ (281 aa)
           
  0.829
LEU2
Beta-isopropylmalate dehydrogenase (IMDH), catalyzes the third step in the leucine biosynthesis pathway; Catalyzes the oxidation of 3-carboxy-2-hydroxy-4- methylpentanoate (3-isopropylmalate) to 3-carboxy-4-methyl-2- oxopentanoate. The product decarboxylates to 4-methyl-2 oxopentanoate (364 aa)
           
  0.829
PTR3
Component of the SPS plasma membrane amino acid sensor system (Ssy1p-Ptr3p-Ssy5p), which senses external amino acid concentration and transmits intracellular signals that result in regulation of expression of amino acid permease genes; Component of the SPS-sensor system, which regulates the expression of several amino acid-metabolizing enzymes and amino acid- and peptide-permeases in response to extracellular amino acid levels by controlling the activity of two transcription factors, STP1 and STP2 (678 aa)
           
  0.827
LEU1
Isopropylmalate isomerase, catalyzes the second step in the leucine biosynthesis pathway; Catalyzes the isomerization between 2-isopropylmalate and 3-isopropylmalate, via the formation of 2-isopropylmaleate (779 aa)
     
   
  0.757
ILV2
Acetolactate synthase, catalyses the first common step in isoleucine and valine biosynthesis and is the target of several classes of inhibitors, localizes to the mitochondria; expression of the gene is under general amino acid control (687 aa)
     
   
  0.754
ILV5
Acetohydroxyacid reductoisomerase and mtDNA binding protein; involved in branched-chain amino acid biosynthesis and maintenance of wild-type mitochondrial DNA; found in mitochondrial nucleoids (395 aa)
           
  0.735
LEU4
Alpha-isopropylmalate synthase (2-isopropylmalate synthase); the main isozyme responsible for the first step in the leucine biosynthesis pathway; Catalyzes the condensation of the acetyl group of acetyl-CoA with 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate (2-oxoisovalerate) to form 3-carboxy-3-hydroxy-4-methylpentanoate (2-isopropylmalate) (619 aa)
     
   
  0.733
SSY5
Serine protease of SPS plasma membrane amino acid sensor system (Ssy1p-Ptr3p-Ssy5p); contains an inhibitory domain that dissociates in response to extracellular amino acids, freeing a catalytic domain to activate transcription factor Stp1p; Protease component of the SPS-sensor system, which regulates the expression of several amino acid-metabolizing enzymes and amino acid- and peptide-permeases in response to extracellular amino acid levels by controlling the activity of two transcription factors, STP1 and STP2. Catalyzes the activation of these transcription factors, which are synthes [...] (699 aa)
           
  0.726
LEU3
Zinc-finger transcription factor that regulates genes involved in branched chain amino acid biosynthesis and ammonia assimilation; positively regulated by alpha-isopropylmalate, an intermediate in leucine biosynthesis; Factor for control of RNA levels of a group of leucine- specific genes (886 aa)
