KCC4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KCC4" - Protein kinase of the bud neck involved in the septin checkpoint, associates with septin proteins, negatively regulates Swe1p by phosphorylation, shows structural homology to bud neck kinases Gin4p and Hsl1p 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

KCC4Protein kinase of the bud neck involved in the septin checkpoint, associates with septin proteins, negatively regulates Swe1p by phosphorylation, shows structural homology to bud neck kinases Gin4p and Hsl1p; Involved in regulation of bud growth during cell cycle and in septin organization. Plays a role in cell wall synthesis (1037 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Adenylate cyclase, required for cAMP production and cAMP-dependent protein kinase signaling; the cAMP pathway controls a variety of cellular processes, including metabolism, cell cycle, stress response, stationary phase, and sporulation; Plays essential roles in regulation of cellular metabolism by catalyzing the synthesis of a second messenger, cAMP (2026 aa)
Protein kinase involved in bud growth and assembly of the septin ring, proposed to have kinase-dependent and kinase-independent activities; undergoes autophosphorylation; similar to Kcc4p and Hsl1p; Serine/threonine-protein kinase which regulates the localization and the function of the septins during mitosis. Phosphorylates SHS1 (1142 aa)
Protein kinase that regulates the G2/M transition by inhibition of Cdc28p kinase activity; localizes to the nucleus and to the daughter side of the mother-bud neck; homolog of S. pombe Wee1p; potential Cdc28p substrate; Protein kinase that acts as a negative regulator of entry into mitosis (G2 to M transition) by phosphorylating and inhibiting the mitosis-promoting cyclin B-bound CDC28 at ’Tyr-19’. SWE1-mediated inhibition of CDC28 acts in a cell size or morphogenesis checkpoint to delay mitosis in response to defects in growth, actin organization or bud formation. Inhibits the activit [...] (819 aa)
Acetyl-CoA carboxylase, biotin containing enzyme that catalyzes the carboxylation of acetyl-CoA to form malonyl-CoA; required for de novo biosynthesis of long-chain fatty acids; Carries out three functions- biotin carboxyl carrier protein, biotin carboxylase and carboxyltransferase. Involved in the synthesis of very-long-chain fatty acid synthesis which is required to maintain a functional nuclear envelope. Required for acylation and vacuolar membrane association of VAC8 which is necessary to maintain a normal morphology of the vacuole (2233 aa)
Mitochondrial acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase, catalyzes the production of malonyl-CoA in mitochondrial fatty acid biosynthesis; Catalyzes the rate-limiting reaction in the mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis (FAS) type II pathway. Responsible for the production of the mitochondrial malonyl-CoA, used for the biosynthesis of the cofactor lipoic acid. This protein carries three functions- biotin carboxyl carrier protein, biotin carboxylase, and carboxyltransferase (2123 aa)
Protein that interacts with mitotic cyclin Clb2p; required for the regulation of microtubule dynamics during mitosis; controls bud morphogenesis; involved in the transport of H2A and H2B histones to the nucleus; phosphorylated by CK2; Acidic protein, which assembles histones into an octamer (in vitro). Involved in the regulation of the localization and the function of the septins during mitosis. Involved in the function of B-type cyclins (417 aa)
Hsp90 chaperone required for pheromone signaling and negative regulation of Hsf1p; docks with Tom70p for mitochondrial preprotein delivery; promotes telomerase DNA binding and nucleotide addition; interacts with Cns1p, Cpr6p, Cpr7p, Sti1p; Molecular chaperone that promotes the maturation, structural maintenance and proper regulation of specific target proteins involved in cell cycle control and signal transduction. Undergoes a functional cycle that is linked to its ATPase activity. The nucleotide-free form of the dimer is found in an open conformation in which the N-termini are not dim [...] (709 aa)
Type 2C protein phosphatase (PP2C); dephosphorylates Hog1p, inactivating osmosensing MAPK cascade; involved in Fus3p activation during pheromone response; deletion affects precursor tRNA splicing, mitochondrial inheritance, and sporulation; It has a serine and a weak tyrosine phosphatase activity with ratios of serine to tyrosine phosphatase activity as high as 200-1. It is essential for growth or germination at 37 degrees Celsius. May have a role in the heat shock response. Involved in tRNA splicing and cell separation (281 aa)
G-protein beta subunit and guanine nucleotide dissociation inhibitor for Gpa2p; ortholog of RACK1 that inhibits translation; core component of the small (40S) ribosomal subunit; represses Gcn4p in the absence of amino acid starvation; Located at the head of the 40S ribosomal subunit in the vicinity of the mRNA exit channel, it serves as a scaffold protein that can recruit other proteins to the ribosome. Involved in the negative regulation of translation of a specific subset of proteins (319 aa)
DDK (Dbf4-dependent kinase) catalytic subunit required for firing origins and replication fork progression in S phase through phosphorylation of Mcm2-7p complexes and Cdc45p; kinase activity correlates with cyclical DBF4 expression; Serine/threonine-protein kinase. Needed for the initiation of DNA synthesis during mitosis as well as for synaptonemal complex formation and commitment to recombination during meiosis. Required for HTA1-HTB1 locus transcription repression (507 aa)
