YRB1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"YRB1" - Ran GTPase binding protein 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

YRB1Ran GTPase binding protein; involved in nuclear protein import and RNA export, ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation during the cell cycle; shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm; is essential; homolog of human RanBP1; Important for the export of protein containing nuclear export signal (NES) out of the nucleus. Stimulates the GTPase activity of GSP1 and GSP2 (201 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GTP binding protein (mammalian Ranp homolog) involved in the maintenance of nuclear organization, RNA processing and transport; interacts with Kap121p, Kap123p and Pdr6p (karyophilin betas); Gsp1p homolog that is not required for viability; GTP-binding protein involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport. Required for the import of protein into the nucleus and also for RNA export. Not essential for cell viability (220 aa)
Ran GTPase, GTP binding protein (mammalian Ranp homolog) involved in the maintenance of nuclear organization, RNA processing and transport; regulated by Srm1p, Rna1p, Yrb1p, Yrb2p, Yrp4p, Yrb30p, Cse1p and Kap95p; yeast Gsp2p homolog; GTP-binding protein involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport. Required for the import of protein into the nucleus and also for RNA export. Essential for cell viability. By analogy with Ras, Ran may be activated when GTP is exchanged for bound GDP by RCC1 and inactivated when GTP is hydrolyzed by Ran upon activation by RanGAP1 (219 aa)
Major karyopherin, involved in export of proteins, RNAs, and ribosomal subunits from the nucleus; exportin; Receptor for the leucine-rich nuclear export signal (NES) (1084 aa)
GTPase activating protein (GAP) for Gsp1p, involved in nuclear transport; GTPase activator for the nuclear Ras-related regulatory protein GSP1 (Ran), converting it to the putatively inactive GDP- bound state (407 aa)
Nucleotide exchange factor for Gsp1p, localizes to the nucleus, required for nucleocytoplasmic trafficking of macromolecules; suppressor of the pheromone response pathway; potentially phosphorylated by Cdc28p; Guanine nucleotide exchange factor that promotes the exchange of GSP1/GSP2-bound GDP by GTP and controls RNA metabolism and transport. Involved in yeast pheromone response pathway and in mRNA metabolism. Involved in nuclear pore complex (NPC) assembly and required for mRNA and ribosome nuclear export. Binds chromatin and is involved NPC-mediated transcriptional control (482 aa)
Karyopherin beta, forms a complex with Srp1p/Kap60p; interacts with nucleoporins to mediate nuclear import of NLS-containing cargo proteins via the nuclear pore complex; regulates PC biosynthesis; GDP-to-GTP exchange factor for Gsp1p; Importin beta subunit that functions in nuclear protein import through association with the importin alpha subunit, which binds to the classical nuclear localization signal (cNLS) in cargo substrates (PubMed-7622450). Docking of the importin/substrate complex to the nuclear pore complex (NPC) is mediated by importin beta through binding to nucleoporin FxF [...] (861 aa)
Ubiquitin-like protein of the SUMO family, conjugated to lysine residues of target proteins; regulates chromatid cohesion, chromosome segregation, APC-mediated proteolysis, DNA replication and septin ring dynamics; phosphorylated at Ser2; Not known; suppressor of MIF2 mutations (101 aa)
Nuclear pore complex (NPC) subunit, involved in protein import/export and in export of RNAs, possible karyopherin release factor that accelerates release of karyopherin-cargo complexes after transport across NPC; potential Cdc28p substrate; Functions as a component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC). NPC components, collectively referred to as nucleoporins (NUPs), can play the role of both NPC structural components and of docking or interaction partners for transiently associated nuclear transport factors. Active directional transport is assured by both, a Phe-Gly (FG) repeat affinity g [...] (1076 aa)
Karyopherin alpha homolog, forms a dimer with karyopherin beta Kap95p to mediate import of nuclear proteins, binds the nuclear localization signal of the substrate during import; may also play a role in regulation of protein degradation; Binds specifically and directly to substrates containing either a simple or bipartite NLS motif. Promotes docking of import substrates to the nuclear envelope. Seems to act as a cytosolic receptor for both simple and bipartite NLS motifs (By similarity) (542 aa)
Karyopherin involved in nuclear import and export of proteins, including import of replication protein A and export of Swi6p, Far1p, and Pho4p; required for re-export of mature tRNAs after their retrograde import from the cytoplasm (1224 aa)
