STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
VBA2Vacuolar basic amino acid transporter 2; Permease of basic amino acids in the vacuolar membrane (474 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Autophagy-related protein 22; Vacuolar integral membrane protein required for efflux of amino acids; required for efflux of amino acids during autophagic body breakdown in the vacuole; null mutation causes a gradual loss of viability during starvation
Protein of unknown function; proposed role as a basic amino acid permease based on phylogeny; GFP-fusion protein localizes to vacuolar membrane; physical interaction with Atg27p suggests a possible role in autophagy; non-essential gene
Drug resistance protein YOR378W; Low affinity NH4+ transporter; member of the DHA2 family of drug:H+ anti porters; putative paralog of ATR1; but not required for boron tolerance; non-essential gene
Uncharacterized membrane protein YJL163C; Putative protein of unknown function
Vacuolar transporter; exports large neutral amino acids from the vacuole; member of a family of seven S. cerevisiae genes (AVT1-7) related to vesicular GABA-glycine transporters; localizes to sites of contact between the vacuole and mitochondria (vCLAMPs)
Vacuolar transporter; exports large neutral amino acids from the vacuole; member of a family of seven S. cerevisiae genes (AVT1-7) related to vesicular GABA-glycine transporters
Glutathione exchanger 2; Proton:glutathione antiporter; localized to the vacuolar and plasma membranes; expressed at a very low level; potential role in resistance to oxidative stress and modulation of the PKA pathway; GEX2 has a paralog, GEX1, that arose from a segmental duplication
Uncharacterized membrane protein YMR155W; Putative protein of unknown function; identified as interacting with Hsp82p in a high-throughput two-hybrid screen
Vacuolar amino acid transporter 6; Vacuolar aspartate and glutamate exporter; member of a family of seven genes (AVT1-7) related to vesicular GABA-glycine transporters; involved in compartmentalizing acidic amino acids in response to nitrogen starvation; AVT6 has a paralog, AVT5, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Delta-1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate dehydrogenase; nuclear-encoded mitochondrial protein involved in utilization of proline as sole nitrogen source; deficiency of human homolog ALDH4A1 causes type II hyperprolinemia (HPII), an autosomal recessive inborn error of metabolism; human homolog ALDH4A1 can complement yeast null mutant
