MRK1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MRK1" - Glycogen synthase kinase 3 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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
MRK1Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3) homolog; one of four GSK-3 homologs in S. cerevisiae that function to activate Msn2p-dependent transcription of stress responsive genes and that function in protein degradation (501 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Adenylate cyclase, required for cAMP production and cAMP-dependent protein kinase signaling; the cAMP pathway controls a variety of cellular processes, including metabolism, cell cycle, stress response, stationary phase, and sporulation; Plays essential roles in regulation of cellular metabolism by catalyzing the synthesis of a second messenger, cAMP (2026 aa)
Acetyl-CoA carboxylase, biotin containing enzyme that catalyzes the carboxylation of acetyl-CoA to form malonyl-CoA; required for de novo biosynthesis of long-chain fatty acids; Carries out three functions- biotin carboxyl carrier protein, biotin carboxylase and carboxyltransferase. Involved in the synthesis of very-long-chain fatty acid synthesis which is required to maintain a functional nuclear envelope. Required for acylation and vacuolar membrane association of VAC8 which is necessary to maintain a normal morphology of the vacuole (2233 aa)
Mitochondrial acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase, catalyzes the production of malonyl-CoA in mitochondrial fatty acid biosynthesis; Catalyzes the rate-limiting reaction in the mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis (FAS) type II pathway. Responsible for the production of the mitochondrial malonyl-CoA, used for the biosynthesis of the cofactor lipoic acid. This protein carries three functions- biotin carboxyl carrier protein, biotin carboxylase, and carboxyltransferase (2123 aa)
Trimeric heat shock transcription factor, activates multiple genes in response to stresses that include hyperthermia; recognizes variable heat shock elements (HSEs) consisting of inverted NGAAN repeats; posttranslationally regulated; DNA-binding protein that specifically binds heat shock promoter elements (HSE) and activates transcription. Also required for growth at normal temperatures (833 aa)
Uridine/cytidine kinase, component of the pyrimidine ribonucleotide salvage pathway that converts uridine into UMP and cytidine into CMP; involved in the pyrimidine deoxyribonucleotide salvage pathway, converting deoxycytidine into dCMP; Catalyzes the conversion of uridine into UMP and cytidine into CMP in the pyrimidine salvage pathway (501 aa)
Uracil phosphoribosyltransferase, synthesizes UMP from uracil; involved in the pyrimidine salvage pathway; Catalyzes the conversion of uracil and 5-phospho-alpha- D-ribose 1-diphosphate (PRPP) to UMP and diphosphate (216 aa)
Urea amidolyase, contains both urea carboxylase and allophanate hydrolase activities, degrades urea to CO2 and NH3; expression sensitive to nitrogen catabolite repression and induced by allophanate, an intermediate in allantoin degradation; Hydrolysis of urea to ammonia and CO(2) (1835 aa)
Outward-rectifier potassium channel of the plasma membrane with two pore domains in tandem, each of which forms a functional channel permeable to potassium; carboxy tail functions to prevent inner gate closures; target of K1 toxin; Outwardly rectifying potassium channel (691 aa)
Serine-rich, hydrophilic protein with similarity to Mbr1p; overexpression suppresses growth defects of hap2, hap3, and hap4 mutants; expression is under glucose control; cotranscribed with NAM7 in a cyp1 mutant; Could influence the NAM7/UPF1 function, possibly at the level of mRNA turnover. Participates in mitochondrial biogenesis (338 aa)
Type 2C protein phosphatase (PP2C); dephosphorylates Hog1p, inactivating osmosensing MAPK cascade; involved in Fus3p activation during pheromone response; deletion affects precursor tRNA splicing, mitochondrial inheritance, and sporulation; It has a serine and a weak tyrosine phosphatase activity with ratios of serine to tyrosine phosphatase activity as high as 200-1. It is essential for growth or germination at 37 degrees Celsius. May have a role in the heat shock response. Involved in tRNA splicing and cell separation (281 aa)
