STRINGSTRING
MCD1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MCD1" - Essential subunit of the cohesin complex required for sister chromatid cohesion in mitosis and meiosis 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

MCD1Essential subunit of the cohesin complex required for sister chromatid cohesion in mitosis and meiosis; apoptosis induces cleavage and translocation of a C-terminal fragment to mitochondria; expression peaks in S phase; Cleavable component of the cohesin complex involved in chromosome cohesion during cell cycle. The cohesin complex is required for the cohesion of sister chromatids after DNA replication. The cohesin complex apparently forms a large proteinaceous ring within which sister chromatids can be trapped. At metaphase-anaphase transition, this protein is cleaved by ESP1 and diss [...] (566 aa)

Subunit of the multiprotein cohesin complex required for sister chromatid cohesion in mitotic cells; also required, with Rec8p, for cohesion and recombination during meiosis; phylogenetically conserved SMC chromosomal ATPase family member; Involved in chromosome cohesion during cell cycle and in DNA repair. Central component of cohesin complex. The cohesin complex is required for the cohesion of sister chromatids after DNA replication. The cohesin complex apparently forms a large proteinaceous ring within which sister chromatids can be trapped. At anaphase, the complex is cleaved and d [...] (1230 aa)

SMC1
Subunit of the multiprotein cohesin complex, essential protein involved in chromosome segregation and in double-strand DNA break repair; SMC chromosomal ATPase family member, binds DNA with a preference for DNA with secondary structure; Involved in chromosome cohesion during cell cycle and in DNA repair. Central component of cohesin complex. The cohesin complex is required for the cohesion of sister chromatids after DNA replication. The cohesin complex apparently forms a large proteinaceous ring within which sister chromatids can be trapped. At anaphase, the complex is cleaved and diss [...] (1225 aa)

IRR1
Subunit of the cohesin complex, which is required for sister chromatid cohesion during mitosis and meiosis and interacts with centromeres and chromosome arms, essential for viability; Component of cohesin complex, a complex required for the cohesion of sister chromatids after DNA replication. The cohesin complex apparently forms a large proteinaceous ring within which sister chromatids can be trapped. At anaphase, the MCD1/SCC1 subunit of the complex is cleaved and dissociates from chromatin, allowing sister chromatids to segregate. The cohesin complex may also play a role in spindle p [...] (1150 aa)

PDS5
Protein required for establishment and maintenance of sister chromatid condensation and cohesion, colocalizes with cohesin on chromosomes, may function as a protein-protein interaction scaffold; also required during meiosis; Essential for the establishment and maintenance of sister chromatid cohesion at centromere proximal and distal regions during S phase. Also required for chromosomal condensation (1277 aa)
     
 
  0.999
ESP1
Separase, a caspase-like cysteine protease that promotes sister chromatid separation by mediating dissociation of the cohesin Scc1p from chromatin; inhibits protein phosphatase 2A-Cdc55p to promote mitotic exit; inhibited by Pds1p; Caspase-like protease, which plays a central role in the chromosome segregation by cleaving the MCD1/SCC1 subunit of the cohesin complex at the onset of anaphase. During most of the cell cycle, it is inactivated by securin/PDS1 protein. It also promotes anaphase spindle elongation. A component of the FEAR (CDC14 early anaphase release) network which promotes [...] (1630 aa)

SMC4
Subunit of the condensin complex; reorganizes chromosomes during cell division; forms a complex with Smc2p that has ATP-hydrolyzing and DNA-binding activity; required for tRNA gene clustering at the nucleolus; potential Cdc28p substrate; Central component of the condensin complex, a complex required for conversion of interphase chromatin into mitotic-like condense chromosomes. The condensin complex probably introduces positive supercoils into relaxed DNA in the presence of type I topoisomerases and converts nicked DNA into positive knotted forms in the presence of type II topoisomerases (1418 aa)

ECO1
Acetyltransferase required for establishment of sister chromatid cohesion; modifies Smc3p at replication forks and Mcd1p in response to ds DNA breaks; has a C2H2-type zinc finger; mutations in human homolog ESCO2 cause Roberts syndrome; Required for establishment of sister chromatid cohesion during S phase but not for its further maintenance during G2 or M phases or for loading the cohesin complex onto DNA. Interacts with the three known alternate replication factor C (RFC) complexes, suggesting that these complexes have essential but redundant activity in cohesion establishment. Acts [...] (281 aa)

RAD50
Subunit of MRX complex, with Mre11p and Xrs2p, involved in processing double-strand DNA breaks in vegetative cells, initiation of meiotic DSBs, telomere maintenance, and nonhomologous end joining; Involved in DNA double-strand break repair (DSBR). The rad50/mre11 complex possesses single-strand endonuclease activity and ATP-dependent double-strand-specific exonuclease activity. Rad50 provides ATP-dependent control of mre11 by unwinding and/or repositioning DNA ends into the mre11 active site (1312 aa)

CDC5
Polo-like kinase with multiple functions in mitosis and cytokinesis through substrate phosphorylation, also functions in adaptation to DNA damage during meiosis; has similarity to Xenopus Plx1 and S. pombe Plo1p; possible Cdc28p substrate; Protein kinase required for the cell cycle where it is involved in mitotic exit. A component of the fear (CDC14 early anaphase release) network which promotes CDC14 release from the nucleolus during early anaphase. Phosphorylates SCC1/MCD1 and NET1 (705 aa)

PDS1
Securin, inhibits anaphase by binding separin Esp1p; blocks cyclin destruction and mitotic exit, essential for meiotic progression and mitotic cell cycle arrest; localization is cell-cycle dependent and regulated by Cdc28p phosphorylation; Regulatory protein, which plays a central role in chromosome stability. Probably acts by blocking the action of key proteins. During the mitosis, it blocks Separase/ESP1 function, preventing the proteolysis of the cohesin complex and the subsequent segregation of the chromosomes. At the onset of anaphase, it is ubiquitinated, conducting to its destru [...] (373 aa)
