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
GEX1Glutathione exchanger 1; Proton:glutathione antiporter; localized to the vacuolar and plasma membranes; imports glutathione from the vacuole and exports it through the plasma membrane; has a role in resistance to oxidative stress and modulation of the PKA pathway; GEX1 has a paralog, GEX2, that arose from a segmental duplication (615 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Permease of basic amino acids in the vacuolar membrane; VBA3 has a paralog, VBA5, that arose from a segmental duplication
Mfs transporter, dha2 family, multidrug resistance protein; Uncharacterized transporter YMR279C; Putative boron transporter involved in boron efflux and resistance; overexpression mutant but not null mutant displays boron tolerance phenotype; identified as a heat-induced gene in a high-throughout screen; YMR279C is not an essential gene; YMR279C has a paralog, ATR1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
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
Vacuolar basic amino acid transporter 5; Plasma membrane protein of the Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS); involved in amino acid uptake and drug sensitivity; VBA5 has a paralog, VBA3, that arose from a segmental duplication
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
Vacuolar basic amino acid transporter 2; Permease of basic amino acids in the vacuolar membrane
Putative uncharacterized protein ypl278c; Putative protein of unknown function; gene expression regulated by copper levels
Aminotriazole resistance protein; Multidrug efflux pump of the major facilitator superfamily; required for resistance to aminotriazole and 4-nitroquinoline-N-oxide; ATR1 has a paralog, YMR279C, that arose from the whole genome duplication; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress
Non-structural maintenance of chromosome element 3; Component of the SMC5-SMC6 complex; this complex plays a key role in the removal of X-shaped DNA structures that arise between sister chromatids during DNA replication and repair; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress
Good for full DBP5 activity protein 2; Protein of unknown function; identified as a high-copy suppressor of a dbp5 mutation; GFD2 has a paralog, YDR514C, that arose from the whole genome duplication
