ELO2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ELO2" - Fatty acid elongase, involved in sphingolipid biosynthesis 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

ELO2Fatty acid elongase, involved in sphingolipid biosynthesis; acts on fatty acids of up to 24 carbons in length; mutations have regulatory effects on 1,3-beta-glucan synthase, vacuolar ATPase, and the secretory pathway; Component of a microsomal membrane-bound long-chain fatty acid elongation system, which produces the 20-26-carbon very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) from long-chain fatty acid precursors and is involved ceramide and inositol sphingolipid biosynthesis. Component of elongase II, which elongates 16-18 carbon fatty acyl-CoAs such as palmitoyl-CoA and stearoyl-CoA to 20-22-ca [...] (347 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Elongase, involved in fatty acid and sphingolipid biosynthesis; synthesizes very long chain 20-26-carbon fatty acids from C18-CoA primers; involved in regulation of sphingolipid biosynthesis; Component of a microsomal membrane bound long-chain fatty acid elongation system, which produces the 20-26-carbon very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) from long-chain fatty acid precursors and is involved ceramide and inositol sphingolipid biosynthesis. Component of elongase III, which synthesizes 20-26- carbon fatty acids from 18-carbon-fatty acyl-CoA primers such as stearoyl-CoA by incorporation [...] (345 aa)
Microsomal beta-keto-reductase; contains oleate response element (ORE) sequence in the promoter region; mutants exhibit reduced VLCFA synthesis, accumulate high levels of dihydrosphingosine, phytosphingosine and medium-chain ceramides; Component of the microsomal membrane bound fatty acid elongation system, which produces the 26-carbon very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) from palmitate. Catalyzes the reduction of the 3-ketoacyl-CoA intermediate that is formed in each cycle of fatty acid elongation. VLCFAs serve as precursors for ceramide and sphingolipids (347 aa)
Enoyl reductase that catalyzes the last step in each cycle of very long chain fatty acid elongation, localizes to the ER, highly enriched in a structure marking nuclear-vacuolar junctions, coimmunoprecipitates with elongases Fen1p and Sur4p; Catalyzes the last of the four reactions of the long- chain fatty acids elongation cycle. This endoplasmic reticulum- bound enzymatic process, allows the addition of 2 carbons to the chain of long- and very long-chain fatty acids/VLCFAs per cycle. This enzyme reduces the trans-2,3-enoyl-CoA fatty acid intermediate to an acyl-CoA that can be further [...] (310 aa)
Golgi GDP-mannose transporter; regulates Golgi function and glycosylation in Golgi; Involved in the import of GDP-mannose from the cytoplasm into the Golgi lumen. Defective copy causes severe glycosylation defect and abnormal retention of soluble endoplasmic reticulum proteins. Involved in vanadate sensitivity (337 aa)
Elongase I, medium-chain acyl elongase, catalyzes carboxy-terminal elongation of unsaturated C12-C16 fatty acyl-CoAs to C16-C18 fatty acids; Component of a microsomal membrane bound medium-chain fatty acid elongation system, which extends medium-chain-length fatty acids to long-chain fatty acids. Component of elongase I, which extends 12-16-carbon fatty acyl-CoAs such as lauroyl-CoA to 14-18-carbon fatty acids by incorporation of malonyl-CoA (310 aa)
Mitochondrial beta-keto-acyl synthase with possible role in fatty acid synthesis; required for mitochondrial respiration; Possibly involved in the synthesis of a specialized molecule, probably related to a fatty acid, which is essential for mitochondrial respiration. Is essential for oxygen uptake and the presence of cytochromes A and B (442 aa)
Vesicle membrane receptor protein (v-SNARE) involved in the fusion between Golgi-derived secretory vesicles with the plasma membrane; member of the synaptobrevin/VAMP family of R-type v-SNARE proteins; SNC1 and SNC2 are vesicle-targeting proteins essential for normal secretory traffic between the Golgi and the plasma membrane. They may also be involved in vesicle fusion (115 aa)
Shuttling pre-60S factor; involved in the biogenesis of ribosomal large subunit; interacts directly with Arx1p; responsible for Tif6p recycling defects in absence of Rei1p; With ARX1, involved in proper assembly of pre-ribosomal particles during the biogenesis of the 60S ribosomal subunit. Accompanies the pre-60S particles to the cytoplasm (175 aa)
Sphingoid long-chain base kinase, responsible for synthesis of long-chain base phosphates, which function as signaling molecules, regulates synthesis of ceramide from exogenous long-chain bases, localizes to the Golgi and late endosomes; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of the sphingoid long chain bases dihydrosphingosine (DHS or sphinganine) and phytosphingosine (PHS) to form dihydrosphingosine 1-phosphate (DHS-1P) and phytosphingosine 1-phosphate (PHS-1P) respectively (PubMed-9677363, PubMed-11102354, PubMed-11795842, PubMed-16141212). Involved in the biosynthesis of sphingolipids and c [...] (624 aa)
Very long chain fatty acyl-CoA synthetase and fatty acid transporter; activates imported fatty acids with a preference for very long lengths (C20-C26); has a separate function in the transport of long chain fatty acids; May be involved in long-chain fatty acids uptake, and thus may play a pivotal role in regulating their accessibility prior to metabolic utilization. May play an important role in uptake of these hydrophobic compounds under conditions where fatty acid synthesis is compromised (669 aa)
