ATG15 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ATG15" - Lipase required for intravacuolar lysis of autophagic bodies and Cvt bodies 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

ATG15Lipase required for intravacuolar lysis of autophagic bodies and Cvt bodies; targeted to intravacuolar vesicles during autophagy via the multivesicular body (MVB) pathway; Lipase which is essential for lysis of subvacuolar cytoplasm to vacuole targeted bodies and intravacuolar autophagic bodies. Involved in the lysis of intravacuolar multivesicular body (MVB) vesicles. The intravacuolar membrane disintegration by ATG15 is critical to life span extension (520 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Autophagy-related protein and dual specificity member of the E1 family of ubiquitin-activating enzymes; mediates the conjugation of Atg12p with Atg5p and Atg8p with phosphatidylethanolamine, required steps in autophagosome formation; E1-like activating enzyme involved in the 2 ubiquitin- like systems required for cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) and autophagy. Activates ATG12 for its conjugation with ATG5 and ATG8 for its conjugation with phosphatidylethanolamine. Both systems are needed for the ATG8 association to Cvt vesicles and autophagosomes membranes. Autophagy is essential f [...] (630 aa)
Protein ser/thr kinase required for vesicle formation in autophagy and the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; structurally required for phagophore assembly site formation; during autophagy forms a complex with Atg13p and Atg17p; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in the cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) and found to be essential in autophagy, where it is required for the formation of autophagosomes. Involved in the clearance of protein aggregates which cannot be efficiently cleared by the proteasome. Required for selective autophagic degradation of the nucleus (nucl [...] (897 aa)
Bifunctional enzyme with triacylglycerol lipase and lysophosphatidylethanolamine acyltransferase activity; responsible for all the triacylglycerol lipase activity of the lipid particle; required with Tgl4p for timely bud formation; Releases specific fatty acids from neutral lipid triacylglycerols (TAG) thereby supplying fatty acids to a general acylation process (642 aa)
Multifunctional triacylglycerol lipase, steryl ester hydrolase, and Ca2+-independent phospholipase A2; catalyzes acyl-CoA dependent acylation of LPA to PA; required with Tgl3p for timely bud formation; phosphorylated and activated by Cdc28p; Releases specific fatty acids from neutral lipid triacylglycerols (TAG) thereby supplying fatty acids to a general acylation process. May have a specific role in sporulation (910 aa)
Monoglyceride lipase (MGL), functional ortholog of mammalian MGL, localizes to lipid particles and membranes, also member of the eukaryotic serine hydrolase family; Converts monoacylglycerides (MAG) to free fatty acids and glycerol. Required for efficient degradation of MAG, short- lived intermediates of glycerolipid metabolism which may also function as lipid signaling molecules. Controls inactivation of the signaling lipid N-palmitoylethanolamine (PEA) (313 aa)
Autophagy-specific protein that is required for recruitment of other ATG proteins to the pre-autophagosomal structure (PAS); interacts with Atg17p and localizas to the PAS in a manner interdependent with Atg17p and Cis1p; not conserved; Plays a role in autophagy. Functions at the preautophagosomal structure (PAS) in order to form normal autophagosomes under starvation conditions. Plays also a role in mitophagy and regulation of filamentous growth (213 aa)
Sorting nexin family member required for the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway and for endosomal sorting; has a Phox homology domain that binds phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate; interacts with Snx4p; potential Cdc28p substrate; Required for cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt), pexophagy and mitophagy. Also involved in endoplasmic reticulum- specific autophagic process and is essential for the survival of cells subjected to severe ER stress. Functions in protein retrieval from the endocytic pathway. Required for proper sorting of the v-SNARE protein SNC1 (640 aa)
Triacylglycerol lipase that is localized to the mitochondria; has lipolytic activity towards triacylglycerols and diacylglycerols when expressed in E. coli; Lipolytic activity towards triacylglycerols and diacylglycerols with short-chain fatty acids (326 aa)
Acyltransferase that catalyzes diacylglycerol esterification; one of several acyltransferases that contribute to triglyceride synthesis; putative homolog of human lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase; Triacylglycerol formation by an acyl-CoA independent pathway. The enzyme specifically transfers acyl groups from the sn-2 position of a phospholipid to diacylglycerol, thus forming an sn-1-lysophospholipid (661 aa)
Peripheral membrane protein required for the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway and efficient macroautophagy; cycles between the phagophore assembly site (PAS) and non-PAS locations; forms a complex with Atg9p and Atg27p; Required for cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) vesicle formation and efficient autophagy. Plays a role in ATG protein retrieval from the pre-autophagosomal structure (PAS) and is especially required for autophagy-dependent cycling of ATG9. Plays also a role in regulation of filamentous growth (453 aa)
