TEC1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"TEC1" - Transcription factor targeting filamentation genes and Ty1 expression 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

TEC1Transcription factor targeting filamentation genes and Ty1 expression; Ste12p activation of most filamentation gene promoters depends on Tec1p and Tec1p transcriptional activity is dependent on its association with Ste12p; binds to TCS elements upst /.../f filamentation genes, which are regulated by Tec1p/Ste12p/Dig1p complex; competes with Dig2p for binding to Ste12p/Dig1p; positive regulator of chronological life span; TEA/ATTS DNA-binding domain family member; TEC1 is involved in the activation of TY1 and TY1- mediated gene expression. It is not involved in mating or sporulation processes (486 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Transcription factor that is activated by a MAPK signaling cascade; activates genes involved in mating or pseudohyphal/invasive growth pathways; cooperates with Tec1p transcription factor to regulate genes specific for invasive growth; Binds to the DNA sequence mediating pheromone induction (called the pheromone response element = PRE) which is found in the upstream control region of several a-, alpha- and haploid- specific genes. Involved in mating of haploids and in pseudohyphae formation in diploids (688 aa)
MAP kinase-responsive inhibitor of the Ste12p transcription factor, involved in the regulation of mating-specific genes and the invasive growth pathway; related regulators Dig1p and Dig2p bind to Ste12p; DIG1 and DIG2 are negative regulators of the filamentation and pheromone induced mating program. DIG1 and DIG2 inhibit the transcriptional activity of STE12 by direct protein- protein interaction. DIG1 colocalizes to promoters with STE12 and redistributes with it during induction of filamentation (by butanol) or mating (by pheromone) to program specific genes, but binding of DIG1 to ST [...] (452 aa)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) involved in signal transduction pathways that control filamentous growth and pheromone response; the KSS1 gene is nonfunctional in S288C strains and functional in W303 strains; Together with closely related FUS3, KSS1 is the final kinase in the signal transduction cascade regulating activation/repression of the mating and filamentation pathways, induced by pheromone and nitrogen/carbon limitation, respectively. Phosphorylated KSS1 activates both pathways, whereas activated FUS3 activates the mating but suppresses the filamentation pathway. KSS1 a [...] (368 aa)
Mitogen-activated serine/threonine protein kinase involved in mating; phosphoactivated by Ste7p; substrates include Ste12p, Far1p, Bni1p, Sst2p; inhibits invasive growth during mating by phosphorylating Tec1p, promoting its degradation; Together with closely related KSS1, FUS3 is the final kinase in the signal transduction cascade regulating activation/repression of the mating and filamentation pathways, induced by pheromone and nitrogen/carbon limitation, respectively. Phosphorylated FUS3 activates the mating but suppresses the filamentation pathway, whereas activated KSS1 activates b [...] (353 aa)
E3 ubiquitin ligase of the NEDD4 family; involved in regulating many cellular processes including MVB sorting, heat shock response, transcription, endocytosis, and ribosome stability; human homolog is involved in Liddle syndrome; mutant tolerates an /.../dy; ubiquitylates Sec23p; E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which accepts ubiquitin from an E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme in the form of a thioester and then directly transfers the ubiquitin to targeted substrates. Component of a RSP5 ubiquitin ligase complex which specifies polyubiquitination and intracellular trafficking of the general a [...] (809 aa)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase involved in osmoregulation; acts via three independent osmosensors; mitophagy-specific regulator; mediates the recruitment and activation of RNA Pol II at Hot1p-dependent promoters; localization regulated by Ptp2p an /.../p; Mitogen-activated protein kinase involved in a signal transduction pathway that is activated by changes in the osmolarity of the extracellular environment. Controls osmotic regulation of transcription via the stress response element (STRE) in promoters of target genes. Upon osmotic shock, associates with the SKO1-SSN6-TUP1 complex, [...] (435 aa)
E3 ubiquitin ligase of the hect-domain class; has a role in mRNA export from the nucleus and may regulate transcriptional coactivators; involved in degradation of excess histones; Probable ubiquitin ligase protein involved in many cellular processes, such as transcription regulation, maintenance of nuclear structure, cell cycle, mRNA export and rRNA maturation. E3 ubiquitin ligase proteins mediate ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins. Involved in transcription regulation by interacting, and probably mediating, ubiquitination of some subunit of the SA [...] (3268 aa)
Transcription factor involved in regulation of invasive growth and starch degradation; controls the activation of MUC1 and STA2 in response to nutritional signals; Transcription factor that regulates pseudohyphal differentiation, invasive growth, floculation, adhesion and starch metabolism in response to nutrient availability (758 aa)
Transcriptional repressor and activator; involved in repression of flocculation-related genes, and activation of stress responsive genes; negatively regulated by cAMP-dependent protein kinase A subunit Tpk2p; Involved in cell surface assembly and regulation of the gene related to flocculation (asexual cell aggregation). Mutations in SFL1 causes constitutive cell aggregation (766 aa)
Nuclear protein that plays a regulatory role in the cyclic AMP (cAMP)-dependent protein kinase (PKA) signal transduction pathway; negatively regulates pseudohyphal differentiation; homologous to several transcription factors; Plays a general regulatory role in the cyclic AMP- dependent protein kinase-stimulated (PKA) signal transduction pathway by regulating the expression of genes important in growth and development. May inhibit the switch from unicellular to filamentous growth (785 aa)
