STRINGSTRING
BIK1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"BIK1" - Microtubule-associated protein, component of the interface between microtubules and kinetochore, involved in sister chromatid separation 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

BIK1Microtubule-associated protein, component of the interface between microtubules and kinetochore, involved in sister chromatid separation; essential in polyploid cells but not in haploid or diploid cells; ortholog of mammalian CLIP-170; Required for nuclear fusion, chromosome disjunction, and nuclear segregation during mitosis. Probably required for the formation or stabilization of microtubules during mitosis and for spindle pole body fusion during conjugation (440 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
STU2
Microtubule-associated protein (MAP) of the XMAP215/Dis1 family; regulates microtubule dynamics during spindle orientation and metaphase chromosome alignment; interacts with spindle pole body component Spc72p; May play a role in the attachment, organization, and/or dynamics of microtubule ends at the spindle pole body (888 aa)
       
  0.995
KAR9
Karyogamy protein required for correct positioning of the mitotic spindle and for orienting cytoplasmic microtubules, localizes at the shmoo tip in mating cells and at the tip of the growing bud in small-budded cells through anaphase; Involved in karyogamy. Component of a cortical adaptor complex that orients cytoplasmic microtubules. It may be involved in anchoring cytoplasmic microtubules to the cell cortex (644 aa)
       
  0.990
BIM1
Microtubule-binding protein that together with Kar9p makes up the cortical microtubule capture site and delays the exit from mitosis when the spindle is oriented abnormally; Binds microtubules (344 aa)
       
 
  0.988
CIN8
Kinesin motor protein involved in mitotic spindle assembly and chromosome segregation; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle. Interacts with spindle microtubules to produce an outwardly directed force acting upon the poles. Following spindle assembly, CIN8 and KIP1 apparently act to oppose a force that draws separated poles back together. This force seems to be mediated by KAR3 (1000 aa)
       
  0.983
SPC24
Component of the evolutionarily conserved kinetochore-associated Ndc80 complex (Ndc80p-Nuf2p-Spc24p-Spc25p); involved in chromosome segregation, spindle checkpoint activity and kinetochore clustering; Acts as a component of the essential kinetochore- associated NDC80 complex, which is involved in chromosome segregation and spindle checkpoint activity (213 aa)
       
  0.975
KIP2
Kinesin-related motor protein involved in mitotic spindle positioning, stabilizes microtubules by targeting Bik1p to the plus end; Kip2p levels are controlled during the cell cycle; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle (706 aa)
       
 
  0.974
DAM1
Essential subunit of the Dam1 complex (aka DASH complex), couples kinetochores to the force produced by MT depolymerization thereby aiding in chromosome segregation; Ipl1p target for regulating kinetochore-MT attachments; Component of the DASH complex, a microtubule-binding subcomplex of the outer kinetochore that is essential for proper chromosome segregation. The DASH complex mediates the formation and maintenance of bipolar kinetochore-microtubule attachments by forming closed rings around spindle microtubules and establishing interactions with proteins from the central kinetochore. [...] (343 aa)
       
  0.963
DUO1
Essential subunit of the Dam1 complex (aka DASH complex), couples kinetochores to the force produced by MT depolymerization thereby aiding in chromosome segregation; is transferred to the kinetochore prior to mitosis; Component of the DASH complex, a microtubule-binding subcomplex of the outer kinetochore that is essential for proper chromosome segregation. The DASH complex mediates the formation and maintenance of bipolar kinetochore-microtubule attachments by forming closed rings around spindle microtubules and establishing interactions with proteins from the central kinetochore. The [...] (247 aa)

MTW1
Essential component of the MIND kinetochore complex (Mtw1p Including Nnf1p-Nsl1p-Dsn1p) which joins kinetochore subunits contacting DNA to those contacting microtubules; critical to kinetochore assembly; Acts as essential component of the kinetochore MIND complex, which is required for the spindle checkpoint and kinetochore integrity. MIND plays a role in establishing a bipolar spindle-kinetochore interaction by joining kinetochore subunits contacting DNA to those contacting microtubules (289 aa)
         
  0.955
TUB1
Alpha-tubulin; associates with beta-tubulin (Tub2p) to form tubulin dimer, which polymerizes to form microtubules; Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (447 aa)
