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:
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 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
HMRA1Silenced mating-type protein a1; Silenced copy of a1 at HMR; homeobox corepressor that interacts with Alpha2p to repress haploid-specific gene transcription in diploid cells (126 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
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; Belongs to the TALE/M-ATYP homeobox family
Silenced mating-type protein ALPHA2; 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
Silenced copy of a2 at HMR; similarity to Alpha2p; required along with a1p for inhibiting expression of the HO endonuclease in a/alpha HO/HO diploid cells with an active mating-type interconversion system; Belongs to the TALE/M-ATYP homeobox family
Silenced mating-type protein ALPHA1; Transcriptional 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
Transcriptional co-activator mating type protein alpha; Silenced copy of ALPHA1 at HML; ALPHA1 encodes a transcriptional coactivator involved in the regulation of mating-type alpha-specific gene expression
Receptor for alpha-factor pheromone; seven transmembrane-domain GPCR that interacts with both pheromone and a heterotrimeric G protein to initiate the signaling response that leads to mating between haploid a and alpha cells; Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 4 family
Alpha-factor-transporting ATPase; Plasma membrane ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter; required for the export of a-factor, catalyzes ATP hydrolysis coupled to a-factor transport; contains 12 transmembrane domains and two ATP binding domains; expressed only in MATa cells; human homolog ABCB1 mediates multidrug resistance in many chemotherapy-resistant tumors by effluxing toxic compounds from the cell
Mating pheromone a-factor; made by a cells; interacts with alpha cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; biogenesis involves C-terminal modification, N-terminal proteolysis, and export; also encoded by MFA1
Zinc finger protein involved in control of meiosis; prevents meiosis by repressing IME1 expression and promotes mitosis by activating CLN2 expression; directly repressed by a1-alpha2 regulator; mediates cell type control of sporulation; relocalizes from nucleus to cytoplasm upon DNA replication stress
A-agglutinin-binding subunit; Adhesion subunit of a-agglutinin of a-cells; C-terminal sequence acts as a ligand for alpha-agglutinin (Sag1p) during agglutination, modified with O-linked oligomannosyl chains, linked to anchorage subunit Aga1p via two disulfide bonds
