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:
a 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
PHO87Low-affinity inorganic phosphate (Pi) transporter; acts upstream of Pho81p in regulation of the PHO pathway; expression is independent of Pi concentration and Pho4p activity; contains 12 membrane-spanning segments; PHO87 has a paralog, PHO90, that arose from the whole genome duplication. (923 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
High-affinity inorganic phosphate (Pi) transporter; also low-affinity manganese transporter; regulated by Pho4p and Spt7p; mutation confers resistance to arsenate; exit from the ER during maturation requires Pho86p; cells overexpressing Pho84p accumulate heavy metals but do not develop symptoms of metal toxicity.
Phosphate permease PHO89; Plasma membrane Na+/Pi cotransporter; active in early growth phase; similar to phosphate transporters of Neurospora crassa; transcription regulated by inorganic phosphate concentrations and Pho4p; mutations in related human transporter genes hPit1 and hPit2 are associated with hyperphosphatemia-induced calcification of vascular tissue and familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification.
Phosphate system positive regulatory protein PHO81; Cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor; regulates Pho80p-Pho85p and Pcl7p-Pho85p cyclin-CDK complexes in response to phosphate levels; inhibitory activity for Pho80p-Pho85p requires myo-D-inositol heptakisphosphate (IP7) generated by Vip1p; relative distribution to the nucleus increases upon DNA replication stress.
Phosphate system positive regulatory protein PHO4; Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor of the myc-family; activates transcription cooperatively with Pho2p in response to phosphate limitation; binding to 'CACGTG' motif is regulated by chromatin restriction, competitive binding of Cbf1p to the same DNA binding motif and cooperation with Pho2p; function is regulated by phosphorylation at multiple sites and by phosphate availability.
Inorganic phosphate transporter PHO86; Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) resident protein; required for ER exit of the high-affinity phosphate transporter Pho84p, specifically required for packaging of Pho84p into COPII vesicles; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress.
Protein with similarity to cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors; downregulates low-affinity phosphate transport during phosphate limitation by targeting Pho87p to the vacuole; upstream region harbors putative hypoxia response element (HRE) cluster; overproduction suppresses a plc1 null mutation; promoter shows an increase in Snf2p occupancy after heat shock; GFP-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm.
Cyclin-dependent kinase; has ten cyclin partners; involved in regulating the cellular response to nutrient levels and environmental conditions and progression through the cell cycle; human lissencephaly-associated homolog CDK5 functionally complements null mutation; Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CDC2/CDKX subfamily.
PHO85 cyclin PHO80; Cyclin; interacts with cyclin-dependent kinase Pho85p; regulates the response to nutrient levels and environmental conditions, including the response to phosphate limitation and stress-dependent calcium signaling; Belongs to the cyclin family. PHO80 subfamily.
Plasma membrane protein of unknown function; truncation and overexpression suppresses lethality of G-alpha protein deficiency.
Glycerophosphocholine (GroPCho) phosphodiesterase; hydrolyzes GroPCho to choline and glycerolphosphate, for use as a phosphate source and as a precursor for phosphocholine synthesis; may interact with ribosomes.
