STRINGSTRING
MATALPHA1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MATALPHA1" - Transcriptional co-activator that regulates mating-type-specific genes 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

MATALPHA1Transcriptional co-activator that regulates mating-type-specific genes; targets the transcription factor Mcm1p to the promoters of alpha-specific genes; one of two genes encoded by the MATalpha mating type cassette; Mating type proteins are sequence specific DNA-binding proteins that act as master switches in yeast differentiation by controlling gene expression in a cell type-specific fashion. Silenced copy of ALPHA1 at HML (175 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
HMRA1
Silenced copy of a1 at HMR; homeobox corepressor that interacts with Alpha2p to repress haploid-specific gene transcription in diploid cells; Mating type proteins are sequence specific DNA-binding proteins that act as master switches in yeast differentiation by controlling gene expression in a cell type-specific fashion. Silenced copy of A1 at HMR (126 aa)

MATALPHA2
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; Mating type proteins are sequence specific DNA-binding proteins that act as master switches in yeast differentiation by controlling gene expression in a cell type-specific fashion. Silenced copy of ALPHA2 at HML (210 aa)

HMLALPHA2
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; Mating type proteins are sequence specific DNA-binding proteins that act as master switches in yeast differentiation by controlling gene expression in a cell type-specific fashion. Silenced copy of ALPHA2 at HML (210 aa)

SLX1
Subunit of a complex, with Slx4p, that hydrolyzes 5’ branches from duplex DNA in response to stalled or converging replication forks; function overlaps with that of Sgs1p-Top3p; Catalytic subunit of the SLX1-SLX4 structure-specific endonuclease that resolves DNA secondary structures generated during DNA repair and recombination. Has endonuclease activity towards branched DNA substrates, introducing single-strand cuts in duplex DNA close to junctions with ss-DNA. Has a preference for simple Y, 5’-flap and replication fork-like structures. It cleaves the strand bearing the 5’-non-homolog [...] (304 aa)

MCM1
Transcription factor involved in cell-type-specific transcription and pheromone response; plays a central role in the formation of both repressor and activator complexes; Transcription factor required for the efficient replication of minichromosomes and the transcriptional regulation of early cell cycle genes. Activates transcription of ECB- dependent genes during the G1/M phase. Genes that contain a ECB (early cell box) element in their transcription regulatory region are transcribed only during G1/M phases. Interacts with the alpha- 2 repressor or with the alpha-1 activator thereby r [...] (286 aa)

GPA1
GTP-binding alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein that couples to pheromone receptors; negatively regulates the mating pathway by sequestering G(beta)gamma and by triggering an adaptive response; activates Vps34p at the endosome; Alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide- binding protein (G protein) that mediates mating pheromone signal transduction. Binding of alpha-factor or a-factor to its cognate transmembrane receptor STE2 and STE3, respectively, allows the receptor to serve as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) on GPA1. The exchange of GDP for GTP on [...] (472 aa)

MF(ALPHA)1
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; The active factor is excreted into the culture medium by haploid cells of the alpha mating type and acts on cells of the opposite mating type (type A). It mediates the conjugation process between the two types by inhibiting the initiation of DNA synthesis in type a cells and synchronizing them with type alpha (165 aa)

YNL035C
Putative protein of unknown function with similarity to proteins containing WD-40 domains; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the nucleus; YNL035C is not an essential gene (389 aa)
