RAD18 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"RAD18" - E3 ubiqutin ligase, forms heterodimer with Rad6p to monoubiquitinate PCNA-K164 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

RAD18E3 ubiqutin ligase, forms heterodimer with Rad6p to monoubiquitinate PCNA-K164; heterodimer binds single-stranded DNA and has single-stranded DNA dependent ATPase activity; required for postreplication repair; E3 RING-finger protein, member of the UBC2/RAD6 epistasis group. Associates to the E2 ubiquitin conjugating enzyme UBC2/RAD6 to form the UBC2-RAD18 ubiquitin ligase complex involved in postreplicative repair (PRR) of damaged DNA. The UBC2-RAD18 complex cooperates with RAD5 and the UBC13-MMS2 dimer to attach mono-ubiquitin chains on ’Lys-164’ of POL30, which is necessary for PRR. [...] (487 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2), involved in postreplication repair (as a heterodimer with Rad18p), DSBR and checkpoint control (as a heterodimer with Bre1p), ubiquitin-mediated N-end rule protein degradation (as a heterodimer with Ubr1p; Catalyzes the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to other proteins. In association with the E3 enzyme BRE1 and LGE1, it plays a role in transcription regulation by catalyzing the monoubiquitination of histone H2B to form H2BK123ub1. H2BK123ub1 gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation, elongation by RNA polymerase II, telomeric si [...] (172 aa)
Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), functions as the sliding clamp for DNA polymerase delta; may function as a docking site for other proteins required for mitotic and meiotic chromosomal DNA replication and for DNA repair; This protein is an auxiliary protein of DNA polymerase delta and is involved in the control of eukaryotic DNA replication by increasing the polymerase’s processibility during elongation of the leading strand. Involved in DNA repair (258 aa)
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme involved in the error-free DNA postreplication repair pathway; interacts with Mms2p to assemble ubiquitin chains at the Ub Lys-63 residue; DNA damage triggers redistribution from the cytoplasm to the nucleus; Has a role in the DNA error-free postreplication repair (PRR) pathway. The UBC13/MMS2 heterodimer catalyzes the synthesis of non-canonical poly-ubiquitin chains that are linked through ’Lys-63’ (153 aa)
DNA helicase proposed to promote replication fork regression during postreplication repair by template switching; RING finger containing ubiquitin ligase; stimulates the synthesis of free and PCNA-bound polyubiquitin chains by Ubc13p-Mms2p; Probable helicase, member of the UBC2/RAD6 epistasis group. Functions with the DNA repair protein RAD18 in error-free postreplication DNA repair. Involved in the maintenance of wild- type rates of instability of simple repetitive sequences such as poly(GT) repeats. Seems to be involved in maintaining a balance which acts in favor of error-prone non- [...] (1169 aa)
Subunit of heterotrimeric Replication Protein A (RPA), which is a highly conserved single-stranded DNA binding protein involved in DNA replication, repair, and recombination; As part of the replication protein A (RPA/RP-A), a single-stranded DNA-binding heterotrimeric complex, may play an essential role in DNA replication, recombination and repair. Binds and stabilizes single-stranded DNA intermediates, preventing complementary DNA reannealing and recruiting different proteins involved in DNA metabolism. Binds to single-stranded sequences participating in DNA replication in addition to [...] (621 aa)
Catalytic subunit of DNA polymerase zeta, involved in translesion synthesis during post-replication repair; required for mutagenesis induced by DNA damage; involved in double-strand break repair; Nonessential DNA polymerase. Required for DNA damage induced mutagenesis. Involved in DNA repair, mitochondrial DNA repair and translesion synthesis. Translesion synthesis in S.cerevisiae may use a specialized DNA polymerase that is not required for other DNA replicative processes. Has a role in the bypass of abasic (AP) sites. Highly inefficient in incorporating nucleotides opposite the AP si [...] (1504 aa)
DNA helicase and DNA-dependent ATPase involved in DNA repair, needed for proper timing of commitment to meiotic recombination and transition from Meiosis I to II; blocks trinucleotide repeat expansion; affects genome stability; ATP-dependent DNA helicase involved in DNA repair at least for UV-induced lesions. The polarity of the helicase activity was determined to be 3’ to 5’ (1174 aa)
Strand exchange protein, forms a helical filament with DNA that searches for homology; involved in the recombinational repair of double-strand breaks in DNA during vegetative growth and meiosis; homolog of Dmc1p and bacterial RecA protein; Required both for recombination and for the repair of DNA damage caused by X-rays. Its function may be modulated by interaction with other repair proteins. RAD52 interacts directly with RAD51, via its C-terminus. Forms a nucleoprotein filament with DNA as an early intermediate in recombination (400 aa)
DNA polymerase eta, involved in translesion synthesis during post-replication repair; catalyzes the synthesis of DNA opposite cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers and other lesions; mutations in human pol eta are responsible for XPV; DNA polymerase specifically involved in DNA repair. Plays an important role in translesion synthesis, where the normal high fidelity DNA polymerases cannot proceed and DNA synthesis stalls. Plays an important role in the repair of UV-induced pyrimidine dimers. Depending on the context, it inserts the correct base, but causes frequent base transitions and transver [...] (632 aa)
Protein that stimulates strand exchange by facilitating Rad51p binding to single-stranded DNA; anneals complementary single-stranded DNA; involved in the repair of double-strand breaks in DNA during vegetative growth and meiosis; Involved in DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair and recombination.
