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

Gene Fusion
HMLALPHA1Transcriptional co-activator mating type protein alpha; Silenced copy of ALPHA1 at HML; ALPHA1 encodes a transcriptional coactivator involved in the regulation of mating-type alpha-specific gene expression (175 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Silenced copy of ALPHA2 at HML; homeobox-domain protein that associates with Mcm1p in haploid cells to repress a-specific gene expression and interacts with a1p in diploid cells to repress haploid-specific gene expression; Belongs to the TALE/M-ATYP homeobox family
Receptor for a factor pheromone; couples to MAP kinase cascade to mediate pheromone response; transcribed in alpha cells and required for mating by alpha cells, ligand bound receptors endocytosed and recycled to the plasma membrane; GPCR
Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)2, although MF(ALPHA)1 produces most alpha-factor; binds copper(II) ions
Transcription factor; involved in cell-type-specific transcription and pheromone response; plays a central role in the formation of both repressor and activator complexes; relocalizes to the cytosol in response to hypoxia
Silenced mating-type protein ALPHA2; Homeobox-domain protein; with Mcm1p, represses a-specific genes in haploids; acts with A1p to repress transcription of haploid-specific genes in diploids; one of two genes encoded by the MATalpha mating type cassette
Silenced mating-type protein a1; Silenced copy of a1 at HMR; homeobox corepressor that interacts with Alpha2p to repress haploid-specific gene transcription in diploid cells
Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)1, which is more highly expressed; binds copper(II) ions
Protein STE12; Transcription factor that is activated by a MAPK signaling cascade; activates genes involved in mating or pseudohyphal/invasive growth pathways; cooperates with Tec1p transcription factor to regulate genes specific for invasive growth
Alpha-agglutinin of alpha-cells; binds to Aga1p during agglutination, N-terminal half is homologous to the immunoglobulin superfamily and contains binding site for a-agglutinin, C-terminal half is highly glycosylated and contains GPI anchor; To C.albicans ALS1
Uncharacterized protein YCR041W; Protein of unknown function; overexpression suppresses the high-frequency loss of mini-chromosomes, probably by increasing the rate of proper chromosome segregation; translated gene product of YCR041W, but not its transcript, is responsible for suppression; suppression ability of YCR041W is completely dependent on silencing protein Sir4p
