PHO2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"PHO2" - Homeobox transcription factor 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
PHO2Homeobox transcription factor; regulatory targets include genes involved in phosphate metabolism; binds cooperatively with Pho4p to the PHO5 promoter; phosphorylation of Pho2p facilitates interaction with Pho4p; Regulator in phosphate metabolism and acts as a derepressor of another central regulator PHO5. Binds to the upstream activator sequence (UAS) of PHO5. It also binds to the TRP4, HIS4, and CYC1 promoters (559 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor of the myc-family; activates transcription cooperatively with Pho2p in response to phosphate limitation; binding to ’CACGTG’ motif is regulated by chromatin restriction, competitive binding of Cbf1p to the same DNA binding motif and cooperation with Pho2p; function is regulated by phosphorylation at multiple sites and by phosphate availability; Transcriptional activator that regulates the expression of repressible phosphatase under phosphate starvation conditions. Binds to the upstream activating sequence (UAS) of several phosphatase e [...] (312 aa)
Myb-related transcription factor involved in regulating basal and induced expression of genes of the purine and histidine biosynthesis pathways; also involved in regulation of meiotic recombination at specific genes; Activates HIS4 transcription only in combination with PHO2/BAS2. BAS1 is also involved in the regulation of the purine biosynthesis pathway (811 aa)
Transcription factor that activates transcription of genes expressed at the M/G1 phase boundary and in G1 phase; localization to the nucleus occurs during G1 and appears to be regulated by phosphorylation by Cdc28p kinase; Determines the mother-cell-specific transcription of the HO endonuclease gene that is responsible for the initiation of mating-type switching in yeast. Recognizes a specific sequence in the promoter of the HO gene. Activates EGT2 transcription in a concentration-dependent manner. Synthesized during G2 and early mitosis (709 aa)
Repressible acid phosphatase (1 of 3) that also mediates extracellular nucleotide-derived phosphate hydrolysis; secretory pathway derived cell surface glycoprotein; induced by phosphate starvation and coordinately regulated by PHO4 and PHO2; Partially mediates extracellular nucleotide derived phosphate hydrolysis along with NPP1 and NPP2 (467 aa)
Cyclin, interacts with cyclin-dependent kinase Pho85p; regulates the response to nutrient levels and environmental conditions, including the response to phosphate limitation and stress-dependent calcium signaling; Cyclin partner of the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) PHO85. Negatively regulates the expression of phosphate- starvation-responsive genes under phosphate-rich conditions. The PHO80-PHO85 cyclin-CDK holoenzyme phosphorylates and inactivates the transcription factor PHO4, by preventing its association with the transcription factor PHO2 and the nuclear import receptor PSE1, and b [...] (293 aa)
Adenylosuccinate lyase, catalyzes two steps in the ’de novo’ purine nucleotide biosynthetic pathway; expression is repressed by adenine and activated by Bas1p and Pho2p; mutations in human ortholog ADSL cause adenylosuccinase deficiency (482 aa)
Catalytic subunit of the main cell cycle cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK); alternately associates with G1 cyclins (CLNs) and G2/M cyclins (CLBs) which direct the CDK to specific substrates; This protein is essential for the completion of the start, the controlling event, in the cell cycle. More than 200 substrates have been identified (298 aa)
TATA-binding protein, general transcription factor that interacts with other factors to form the preinitiation complex at promoters, essential for viability; General transcription factor that functions at the core of the DNA-binding general transcription factor complex TFIID. Binding of TFIID to a promoter (with or without TATA element) is the initial step in preinitiation complex (PIC) formation. TFIID plays a key role in the regulation of gene expression by RNA polymerase II through different activities such as transcription activator interaction, core promoter recognition and select [...] (240 aa)
bZIP transcriptional activator of amino acid biosynthetic genes; activator responds to amino acid starvation; expression is tightly regulated at both the transcriptional and translational levels; Is a transcription factor that is responsible for the activation of more than 30 genes required for amino acid or for purine biosynthesis in response to amino acid or purine starvation. Binds and recognize the DNA sequence- 5’-TGA[CG]TCA- 3’ (281 aa)
Multifunctional enzyme containing phosphoribosyl-ATP pyrophosphatase, phosphoribosyl-AMP cyclohydrolase, and histidinol dehydrogenase activities; catalyzes the second, third, ninth and tenth steps in histidine biosynthesis (799 aa)
