STRINGSTRING
BEM1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"BEM1" - Protein containing SH3-domains, involved in establishing cell polarity and morphogenesis 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

BEM1Protein containing SH3-domains, involved in establishing cell polarity and morphogenesis; functions as a scaffold protein for complexes that include Cdc24p, Ste5p, Ste20p, and Rsr1p; Necessary for cell polarization during vegetative growth. May link the cytoskeleton to morphogenic determinants on the cell surface (551 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CDC24
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF or GDP-release factor) for Cdc42p; required for polarity establishment and maintenance, and mutants have morphological defects in bud formation and shmooing; Promotes the exchange of CDC42-bound GDP by GTP. Controls the polarity of calmodulin, and the calcium regulatory process of bud emergence. CDC24 may be involved in the initial selection and organization of the budding site (854 aa)
       
  0.999
CDC42
Small rho-like GTPase, essential for establishment and maintenance of cell polarity; mutants have defects in the organization of actin and septins; Involved in development of cell polarity during the cell division cycle, and essential for bud emergence. Affects signaling in the pheromone-response pathway through the STE20 protein kinase. Negatively regulated by the GTPase-activating proteins RGA1, BEM3, and BEM4 (191 aa)
       
  0.999
STE20
Cdc42p-activated signal transducing kinase of the PAK (p21-activated kinase) family; involved in pheromone response, pseudohyphal/invasive growth, vacuole inheritance, down-regulation of sterol uptake; GBB motif binds Ste4p; MAP4K component of the MAPK pathway required for the mating pheromone response, haploid invasive growth and diploid pseudohyphal development. Links the pheromone response G-protein beta gamma subunits to downstream signaling components. Needed for mating in haploid cells, induction of a mating-specific gene FUS1, induction of mating-specific morphologies, and phero [...] (939 aa)
     
  0.998
CLA4
Cdc42p-activated signal transducing kinase of the PAK (p21-activated kinase) family, along with Ste20p and Skm1p; involved in septin ring assembly, vacuole inheritance, cytokinesis, sterol uptake regulation; phosphorylates Cdc3p and Cdc10p; Involved in budding and cytokinesis (842 aa)
     
  0.994
BOI2
Protein implicated in polar growth, functionally redundant with Boi1p; interacts with bud-emergence protein Bem1p; contains an SH3 (src homology 3) domain and a PH (pleckstrin homology) domain; Binds to the BEM1 protein. Involved in bud formation (1040 aa)
       
 
  0.989
RSR1
GTP-binding protein of the ras superfamily required for bud site selection, morphological changes in response to mating pheromone, and efficient cell fusion; localized to the plasma membrane; significantly similar to mammalian Rap GTPases; Involved in development of cell polarity during the cell division cycle, and essential for bud emergence. RSR1 and CDC24 interact functionally and perhaps physically (272 aa)
       
 
  0.971
BOI1
Protein implicated in polar growth, functionally redundant with Boi2p; interacts with bud-emergence protein Bem1p; contains an SH3 (src homology 3) domain and a PH (pleckstrin homology) domain; Binds to the BEM1 protein (980 aa)
       
 
  0.971
RGA2
GTPase-activating protein for the polarity-establishment protein Cdc42p; implicated in control of septin organization, pheromone response, and haploid invasive growth; regulated by Pho85p and Cdc28p; GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for CDC42 and/or RHO1 (1009 aa)
       
 
  0.958
MSB1
Protein involved in positive regulation of both 1,3-beta-glucan synthesis and the Pkc1p-MAPK pathway, potential Cdc28p substrate; multicopy suppressor of temperature-sensitive mutations in CDC24 and CDC42, and of mutations in BEM4; May play a role in polarity establishment and bud formation. The MSB1 gene may be functionally redundant (1137 aa)
       
 
  0.937
ACT1
Actin, structural protein involved in cell polarization, endocytosis, and other cytoskeletal functions; Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells (375 aa)
       
 
  0.934
