STRINGSTRING
SCM3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SCM3" - Nonhistone component of centromeric chromatin that binds stoichiometrically to CenH3-H4 histones, required for kinetochore assembly 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

SCM3Nonhistone component of centromeric chromatin that binds stoichiometrically to CenH3-H4 histones, required for kinetochore assembly; required for G2/M progression and localization of Cse4p; may protect Cse4p from ubiquitylation (223 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CSE4
Centromere protein that resembles histone H3, required for proper kinetochore function; homolog of human CENP-A; levels are regulated by E3 ubiquitin ligase Psh1p; Histone H3-like variant which exclusively replaces conventional H3 in the nucleosome core of centromeric chromatin at the inner plate of the kinetochore. Required for recruitment and assembly of kinetochore proteins, mitotic progression and chromosome segregation. May serve as an epigenetic mark that propagates centromere identity through replication and cell division. Required for functional chromatin architecture at the ye [...] (229 aa)

HHF2
Histone H4, core histone protein required for chromatin assembly and chromosome function; one of two identical histone proteins (see also HHF1); contributes to telomeric silencing; N-terminal domain involved in maintaining genomic integrity; Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-trans [...] (103 aa)

HHT2
Histone H3, core histone protein required for chromatin assembly, part of heterochromatin-mediated telomeric and HM silencing; one of two identical histone H3 proteins (see HHT1); regulated by acetylation, methylation, and phosphorylation; Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-transla [...] (136 aa)

CBF2
Essential kinetochore protein, component of the CBF3 multisubunit complex that binds to the CDEIII region of the centromere; Cbf2p also binds to the CDEII region possibly forming a different multimeric complex, ubiquitinated in vivo; Acts as a component of the centromere DNA-binding protein complex CBF3, which is essential for chromosome segregation and movement of centromeres along microtubules. CBF3 is required for the recruitment of other kinetochore complexes to CEN DNA. It plays a role in the attachment of chromosomes to the spindle and binds selectively to a highly conserved DNA [...] (956 aa)

PSH1
E3 ubiquitin ligase that mediates poyubiquitination and degradation of centromere-binding protein Cse4p and prevents Cse4p from mislocalizing to euchromatin; ubiquitylation of Cse4p may be antagonized by Scm3p (406 aa)

MCM21
Protein involved in minichromosome maintenance; component of the COMA complex (Ctf19p, Okp1p, Mcm21p, Ame1p) that bridges kinetochore subunits that are in contact with centromeric DNA and the subunits bound to microtubules; Component of the central kinetochore, which mediates the attachment of the centromere to the mitotic spindle by forming essential interactions between the microtubule-associated outer kinetochore proteins and the centromere-associated inner kinetochore proteins. Required for establishing bipolar spindle- microtubule attachments and proper chromosome segregation (368 aa)

CTF19
Outer kinetochore protein, required for accurate mitotic chromosome segregation; component of the kinetochore sub-complex COMA (Ctf19p, Okp1p, Mcm21p, Ame1p) that functions as a platform for kinetochore assembly; Component of the central kinetochore, which mediates the attachment of the centromere to the mitotic spindle by forming essential interactions between the microtubule-associated outer kinetochore proteins and the centromere-associated inner kinetochore proteins. Required for establishing bipolar spindle- microtubule attachments and proper chromosome segregation (369 aa)
