CYK3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CYK3" - SH3-domain protein located in the mother-bud neck and the cytokinetic actin ring 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
CYK3SH3-domain protein located in the mother-bud neck and the cytokinetic actin ring; mutant phenotype and genetic interactions suggest a role in cytokinesis; Involved in cytokinesis by recruiting INN1 to the bud neck. Cooperates with INN1 to stimulate the synthesis of the primary septum (PS) by CHS2 (885 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Essential protein that associates with the contractile actomyosin ring, required for ingression of the plasma membrane into the bud neck during cytokinesis; C2 domain, a membrane targeting module, is required for function; Required for the ingression of the plasma membrane into the bud neck at the end of cytokinesis, leading to the separation of the mother and daughter cells. Stimulates the synthesis of the primary septum (PS) by CHS2 (409 aa)
Bud neck-localized, SH3 domain-containing protein required for cytokinesis; regulates actomyosin ring dynamics and septin localization; interacts with the formins, Bni1p and Bnr1p, and with Cyk3p, Vrp1p, and Bni5p; Throughout most of the cell cycle it forms a double ring that coincides with the septins. After the onset of mitosis, forms a ring-like structure which colocalizes with the medial actin ring. Mediates cytoskeletal rearrangements required for cytokinesis. In conjunction with the medial actin ring exhibits contraction-like action (669 aa)
Type II myosin heavy chain, required for wild-type cytokinesis and cell separation; localizes to the actomyosin ring; binds to myosin light chains Mlc1p and Mlc2p through its IQ1 and IQ2 motifs respectively; Required for cell division (1928 aa)
Essential protein required for determination of budding pattern, promotes localization of axial markers Bud4p and Cdc12p and functionally interacts with Sec3p, localizes to the contractile ring during anaphase, member of the IQGAP family; Required for the assembly and the contraction of the actomyosin ring at the bud neck during cytokinesis. Seems to be involved in additional tasks during cell division like axial bud- site selection and targeted secretion by recruiting the spatial landmark BUD4, the septin CDC12 and the secretion landmark SEC3 to the bud neck. May be regulated by calci [...] (1495 aa)
Transmembrane osmosensor involved in activation of the Cdc42p- and MAP kinase-dependent filamentous growth pathway and the high-osmolarity glycerol response pathway; phosphorylated by Hog1p; interacts with Pbs2p, Msb2p, Hkr1p, and Ste11p; Plasma membrane osmosensor that activates the high osmolarity glycerol (HOG) MAPK signaling pathway in response to high osmolarity. Detects changes in external osmolarity and activates PBS2 through the stimulation of STE11 and targets PBS2 to the plasma membrane. PBS2 activation leads to changes in glycerol production that helps to balance the intrace [...] (367 aa)
Essential light chain for Myo1p, light chain for Myo2p; stabilizes Myo2p by binding to the neck region; interacts with Myo1p, Iqg1p, and Myo2p to coordinate formation and contraction of the actomyosin ring with targeted membrane deposition; Essential light chain for the class II conventional myosin MYO1. Acts also as light chain for the class V unconventional myosin MYO2 and for IQG1. Involved in the assembly of the contractile actomyosin ring at the bud neck during cytokinesis by recruiting IQG1 to the bud neck. Also required for chitin and MYO2-dependent secretory vesicle deposition [...] (149 aa)
Chitin synthase II; catalyzes transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin upon activation of zymogenic form; required for chitin synthesis in the primary septum during cytokinesis; localization regulated by Cdk1p during mitosis; Essential for septum formation and cell division. CHS2 is required for maintaining normal cell morphology (963 aa)
14-3-3 protein, minor isoform; controls proteome at post-transcriptional level, binds proteins and DNA, involved in regulation of many processes including exocytosis, vesicle transport, Ras/MAPK signaling, and rapamycin-sensitive signaling (273 aa)
Small rho-like GTPase, essential for establishment and maintenance of cell polarity; mutants have defects in the organization of actin and septins; Involved in development of cell polarity during the cell division cycle, and essential for bud emergence. Affects signaling in the pheromone-response pathway through the STE20 protein kinase. Negatively regulated by the GTPase-activating proteins RGA1, BEM3, and BEM4 (191 aa)
Actin-associated protein with roles in endocytosis and exocytosis; interacts with Rvs161p to regulate actin cytoskeleton, endocytosis, and viability following starvation or osmotic stress; recruited to bud tips by Gyl1p and Gyp5p during polarized gr /.../homolog of mammalian amphiphysin; Component of a cytoskeletal structure that is required for the formation of endocytic vesicles at the plasma membrane level. Could be implicated in cytoskeletal reorganization in response to environmental stresses and could act in the budding site selection mechanism (482 aa)
