FZO1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"FZO1" - Mitofusin 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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
FZO1Mitofusin; integral membrane protein involved in mitochondrial outer membrane tethering and fusion; role in mitochondrial genome maintenance; efficient tethering and degradation of Fzo1p requires an intact N-terminal GTPase domain; targeted for dest /.../n by the ubiquitin ligase SCF-Mdm30p and the cytosolic ubiquitin-proteasome system; Essential transmembrane GTPase, which mediates mitochondrial fusion. Fusion of mitochondria occurs in many cell types and constitutes an important step in mitochondrial morphology, which is balanced between fusion and fission, mediated by FZO1 and DNM1, [...] (855 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mitochondrial GTPase, present in complex with Ugo1p and Fzo1p; required for mt morphology and genome maintenance; exists as long and short form with different distributions; homolog of human OPA1 involved in autosomal dominant optic atrophy; Dynamin-related GTPase required for mitochondrial fusion. Coordinates interaction between the inner and outer mitochondrial membrane to promote the formation of the double membrane (881 aa)
Protein involved in mitochondrial membrane fission and peroxisome abundance; required for localization of Dnm1p and Mdv1p during mitochondrial division; mediates ethanol-induced apoptosis and ethanol-induced mitochondrial fragmentation; Has a role in mitochondrial fission. Has a role in outer membrane fission but not matrix separation. Required for targeting MDV1 to the mitochondria. Regulates the assembly of DNM1 into punctate structures, in the mitochondrial tubules, promoting mitochondrial membrane constriction and/or division (155 aa)
Outer membrane component of the mitochondrial fusion machinery; binds directly to Fzo1p and Mgm1p and thus links these two GTPases during mitochondrial fusion; involved in fusion of both the outer and inner membranes; facilitates dimerization of Fzo /.../ing fusion; import into the outer membrane is mediated by Tom70p and Mim1p; has similarity to carrier proteins but is not likely to function as a transmembrane transporter; Required for mitochondrial fusion as well as normal mitochondrial morphology by bridging the essential interaction between FZO1 and MGM1. May coordinate fusion of i [...] (502 aa)
Dynamin-related GTPase required for mitochondrial fission and morphology; assembles on the cytoplasmic face of mitochondrial tubules at sites at which division will occur; also participates in endocytosis and regulating peroxisome abundance; Microtubule-associated force-producing protein that participates mitochondrial fission. Fission of mitochondria occurs in many cell types and constitutes an important step in mitochondria morphology, which is balanced between fusion and fission. Functions antagonistically with FZO1 (757 aa)
Peripheral protein of the cytosolic face of the mitochondrial outer membrane, required for mitochondrial fission; interacts with Fis1p and with the dynamin-related GTPase Dnm1p; contains WD repeats; Involved in mitochondrial fission. Has a partially redundant function to CAF4 in acting as an adapter protein, binding to FIS1 on the mitochondrial outer membrane and recruiting the dynamin-like GTPase DNM1 to form mitochondrial fission complexes. Formation of these complexes is required to promote constriction and fission of the mitochondrial compartment at a late step in mitochondrial division (714 aa)
F-box component of an SCF ubiquitin protein ligase complex; associates with and is required for Fzo1p ubiquitination and for mitochondria fusion; stimulates nuclear export of specific mRNAs; promotes ubiquitin-mediated degradation of Gal4p in some strains; Substrate recognition component of a SCF (SKP1-CUL1-F- box protein) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex which mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins. Probably recognizes and binds to phosphorylated target proteins (By similarity). Recognizes FZO1 and regulates the amount of FZO1. Regulat [...] (598 aa)
WD40 repeat-containing protein associated with the CCR4-NOT complex, interacts in a Ccr4p-dependent manner with Ssn2p; also interacts with Fis1p, Mdv1p and Dnm1p and plays a role in mitochondrial fission; Involved in mitochondrial fission. Has a partially redundant function to MDV1 in acting as an adapter protein, binding to FIS1 on the mitochondrial outer membrane and recruiting the dynamin-like GTPase DNM1 to form mitochondrial fission complexes. Plays a key role in determining the polarized localization of those DNM1 clusters that are not immediately involved in the mitochondrial fi [...] (643 aa)
Subunit of both the ERMES complex that links the ER to mitochondria, and of the mitochondrial sorting and assembly machinery (SAM complex) that functions in import and assembly of outer membrane beta-barrel proteins; Component of the ERMES/MDM complex, which serves as a molecular tether to connect the endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria. Components of this complex are involved in the control of mitochondrial shape and protein biogenesis and may function in phospholipid exchange. MDM10 is involved in the late assembly steps of the general translocase of the mitochondrial outer membra [...] (493 aa)
Bifunctional carbamoylphosphate synthetase/aspartate transcarbamylase; catalyzes the first two enzymatic steps in the de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidines; both activities are subject to feedback inhibition by UTP; This protein is a "fusion" protein encoding three enzymatic activities of the pyrimidine pathway (GATase, CPSase, and ATCase) (2214 aa)
Silencing protein that interacts with Sir2p and Sir4p, and histone H3 and H4 tails, to establish a transcriptionally silent chromatin state; required for spreading of silenced chromatin; recruited to chromatin through interaction with Rap1p; The proteins SIR1 through SIR4 are required for transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci, HML and HMR. The proteins SIR2 through SIR4 repress mulitple loci by modulating chromatin structure. Involves the compaction of chromatin fiber into a more condensed form (978 aa)
