MTF2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MTF2" - Mitochondrial matrix protein that interacts with an N-terminal region of mitochondrial RNA polymerase 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

Gene Fusion
MTF2Mitochondrial matrix protein that interacts with an N-terminal region of mitochondrial RNA polymerase (Rpo41p) and couples RNA processing and translation to transcription; Required for the processing and/or for the stability of the CYTB and COX1 intron-containing pre-mRNAs and of the ATP6 transcript. Could be a stem-loop RNA-binding protein that plays a role in determining RNA stability (440 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Specific translational activator for the COX1 mRNA, also influences stability of intron-containing COX1 primary transcripts; localizes to the mitochondrial inner membrane; contains seven pentatricopeptide repeats (PPRs); Required for initiation of translation of the COX1 coding region. Also involved in the stability of the intron containing transcript of COX1 (965 aa)
Mitochondrial RNA polymerase; single subunit enzyme similar to those of T3 and T7 bacteriophages; requires a specificity subunit encoded by MTF1 for promoter recognition; binding of Mtf1p to the Rpo41p-promoter complex stabilizes the binding and ind /.../NA bending; DNA-dependent RNA polymerase catalyzes the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates (1351 aa)
Cytochrome b, mitochondrially encoded subunit of the ubiquinol-cytochrome c reductase complex which includes Cobp, Rip1p, Cyt1p, Cor1p, Qcr2p, Qcr6p, Qcr7p, Qcr8p, Qcr9p, and Qcr10p; Component of the ubiquinol-cytochrome c reductase complex (complex III or cytochrome b-c1 complex), which is part of the mitochondrial respiratory chain that generates an electrochemical potential coupled to ATP synthesis. The complex couples electron transfer from ubiquinol to cytochrome c (385 aa)
Mitochondrial translational activator specific for the COX2 mRNA; located in the mitochondrial inner membrane; Required for translation of the mitochondrial gene for cytochrome c oxidase subunit II (COX2) (800 aa)
Mitochondrial membrane protein; coordinates expression of mitochondrially-encoded genes; may facilitate delivery of mRNA to membrane-bound translation machinery; Involved in aerobic respiration where it is required for assembly of respiratory chain enzyme complexes III and IV. Also has a role in mitochondrial gene expression. May be part of a mitochondrial membrane-associated RNA-shuttling system, delivering NAM1-associated transcripts to the translation machinery (643 aa)
Subunit I of cytochrome c oxidase, which is the terminal member of the mitochondrial inner membrane electron transport chain; one of three mitochondrially-encoded subunits; Cytochrome c oxidase is the component of the respiratory chain that catalyzes the reduction of oxygen to water. Subunits 1- 3 form the functional core of the enzyme complex. CO I is the catalytic subunit of the enzyme. Electrons originating in cytochrome c are transferred via the copper A center of subunit 2 and heme A of subunit 1 to the bimetallic center formed by heme A3 and copper B (534 aa)
Activator of Chs3p (chitin synthase III), recruits Chs3p to the bud neck via interaction with Bni4p; has similarity to Shc1p, which activates Chs3p during sporulation; Possible role in protoplast regeneration and killer toxin of K.lactis (PGKL) resistance (696 aa)
Mitochondrial alcohol dehydrogenase isozyme III; involved in the shuttling of mitochondrial NADH to the cytosol under anaerobic conditions and ethanol production (375 aa)
Amphiphysin-like lipid raft protein; interacts with Rvs167p and regulates polarization of the actin cytoskeleton, endocytosis, cell polarity, cell fusion and viability following starvation or osmotic stress; Component of a cytoskeletal structure that is required for the formation of endocytic vesicles at the plasma membrane level (265 aa)
Mitochondrially encoded subunit a of the F0 sector of mitochondrial F1F0 ATP synthase; translation is specifically activated by Atp22p; ATP6 and ATP8 mRNAs are not translated in the absence of the F1 sector of ATPase; Mitochondrial membrane ATP synthase (F(1)F(0) ATP synthase or Complex V) produces ATP from ADP in the presence of a proton gradient across the membrane which is generated by electron transport complexes of the respiratory chain. F-type ATPases consist of two structural domains, F(1) - containing the extramembraneous catalytic core and F(0) - containing the membrane proton [...] (259 aa)
