WHI4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"WHI4" - Protein WHI4 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
WHI4Protein WHI4; Putative RNA binding protein; regulates the cell size requirement for passage through Start and commitment to cell division; WHI4 has a paralog, WHI3, that arose from the whole genome duplication (649 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein with an N-terminal kelch-like domain; putative negative regulator of early meiotic gene expression; required, with Mds3p, for growth under alkaline conditions; PMD1 has a paralog, MDS3, that arose from the whole genome duplication (1753 aa)
RNA binding protein that sequesters CLN3 mRNA in cytoplasmic foci; regulates genes involved in the cell cycle, sister chromatid cohesion, and stress response; acts as a cytoplasmic retention factor for Cdc28p and associated cyclins; regulates cell fate and dose-dependently regulates the critical cell size required for passage through Start; Tpk1p (PKA) mediated phosphorylation (S568) inhibits Whi3p function, decreasing its interaction with CLN3 mRNA; regulates ploidy (661 aa)
General negative regulator of transcription subunit 3; Component of the CCR4-NOT core complex, involved in mRNA decapping; involved in transcription initiation and elongation and in mRNA degradation; conserved lysine in human homolog of Not3p and Not5p is mutated in cancers (836 aa)
Nucleolar protein implicated in ribosome biogenesis; deletion extends chronological lifespan (211 aa)
Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase 1; Ubiquitin-specific protease; removes ubiquitin from ubiquitinated proteins; cleaves at the C terminus of ubiquitin fusions irrespective of their size; capable of cleaving polyubiquitin chains (809 aa)
S-phase entry cyclin-5; B-type cyclin involved in DNA replication during S phase; activates Cdc28p to promote initiation of DNA synthesis; functions in formation of mitotic spindles along with Clb3p and Clb4p; most abundant during late G1 phase; CLB5 has a paralog, CLB6, that arose from the whole genome duplication (435 aa)
G1/S-specific cyclin CLN3; G1 cyclin involved in cell cycle progression; activates Cdc28p kinase to promote G1 to S phase transition; plays a role in regulating transcription of other G1 cyclins, CLN1 and CLN2; regulated by phosphorylation and proteolysis; acetyl-CoA induces CLN3 transcription in response to nutrient repletion to promote cell-cycle entry; cell cycle arrest phenotype of the cln1 cln2 cln3 triple null mutant is complemented by any of human cyclins CCNA2, CCNB1, CCNC, CCND1, or CCNE1 (580 aa)
Protein with a role in regulating Swe1p-dependent polarized growth; involved in maintaining Cdc55p in the cytoplasm where it promotes mitotic entry; involved in mitotic exit through Cdc14p regulation; interacts with silencing proteins at telomeres; has a role in Bcy1p localization; implicated in mRNA nuclear export; ZDS1 has a paralog, ZDS2, that arose from the whole genome duplication (915 aa)
Morphogenesis-related protein MSB1; Protein of unknown function; may be involved in positive regulation of 1,3-beta-glucan synthesis and the Pkc1p-MAPK pathway; multicopy suppressor of temperature-sensitive mutations in CDC24 and CDC42, and of mutations in BEM4; potential Cdc28p substrate; relocalizes from bud neck to cytoplasm upon DNA replication stress (1137 aa)
Regulatory protein SWI4; DNA binding component of the SBF complex (Swi4p-Swi6p); a transcriptional activator that in concert with MBF (Mbp1-Swi6p) regulates late G1-specific transcription of targets including cyclins and genes required for DNA synthesis and repair; Slt2p-independent regulator of cold growth; acetylation at two sites, K1016 and K1066, regulates interaction with Swi6p (1093 aa)
