HEM13 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"HEM13" - Coproporphyrinogen III oxidase, an oxygen requiring enzyme that catalyzes the sixth step in the heme biosynthetic pathway 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
HEM13Coproporphyrinogen III oxidase, an oxygen requiring enzyme that catalyzes the sixth step in the heme biosynthetic pathway; transcription is repressed by oxygen and heme (via Rox1p and Hap1p); Involved in the heme biosynthesis. Catalyzes the aerobic oxidative decarboxylation of propionate groups of rings A and B of coproporphyrinogen-III to yield the vinyl groups in protoporphyrinogen-IX (By similarity) (328 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase, catalyzes the fifth step in the heme biosynthetic pathway; localizes to both the cytoplasm and nucleus; a hem12 mutant has phenotypes similar to patients with porphyria cutanea tarda; Catalyzes the decarboxylation of four acetate groups of uroporphyrinogen-III to yield coproporphyrinogen-III (362 aa)
Protoporphyrinogen oxidase, a mitochondrial enzyme that catalyzes the seventh step in the heme biosynthetic pathway, converting protoporphyrinogen IX to protoporphyrin IX; inhibited by diphenyl ether-type herbicides; Catalyzes the 6-electron oxidation of protoporphyrinogen-IX to form protoporphyrin-IX (539 aa)
Translation elongation factor eIF-5A, previously thought to function in translation initiation; similar to and functionally redundant with Hyp2p; undergoes an essential hypusination modification; expressed under anaerobic conditions; mRNA-binding protein involved in translation elongation. Has an important function at the level of mRNA turnover, probably acting downstream of decapping. Involved in actin dynamics and cell cycle progression, mRNA decay and probably in a pathway involved in stress response and maintenance of cell wall integrity. Essential for polarized growth, a process n [...] (157 aa)
Porphobilinogen deaminase, catalyzes the conversion of 4-porphobilinogen to hydroxymethylbilane, the third step in heme biosynthesis; localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus; expression is regulated by Hap2p-Hap3p, but not by levels of heme; Tetrapolymerization of the monopyrrole PBG into the hydroxymethylbilane pre-uroporphyrinogen in several discrete steps (327 aa)
Heme-dependent repressor of hypoxic genes; contains an HMG domain that is responsible for DNA bending activity; Transcription factor that represses the expression of HEM13, COX5B, ANB1, CYC7 or AAC3 (hypoxic function). Binds to the DNA sequence 5’-RRRTAACAAGAG-3’ (368 aa)
5-aminolevulinate synthase, catalyzes the first step in the heme biosynthetic pathway; an N-terminal signal sequence is required for localization to the mitochondrial matrix; expression is regulated by Hap2p-Hap3p; Catalyzes the synthesis of 5-aminolevulinate (ALA) from succinyl-CoA and glycine, the first and rate-limiting step in heme biosynthesis (548 aa)
Ferrochelatase, a mitochondrial inner membrane protein, catalyzes the insertion of ferrous iron into protoporphyrin IX, the eighth and final step in the heme biosynthetic pathway; Catalyzes the ferrous insertion into protoporphyrin IX (393 aa)
Aminolevulinate dehydratase, a homo-octameric enzyme, catalyzes the conversion of 5-aminolevulinate to porphobilinogen, the second step in heme biosynthesis; enzymatic activity is zinc-dependent; localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus; Catalyzes an early step in the biosynthesis of tetrapyrroles. Binds two molecules of 5-aminolevulinate per subunit, each at a distinct site, and catalyzes their condensation to form porphobilinogen (342 aa)
Stress inducible cytoplasmic thioredoxin peroxidase; cooperates with Tsa1p in the removal of reactive oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur species using thioredoxin as hydrogen donor; deletion enhances the mutator phenotype of tsa1 mutants; Reduces peroxides. May play an important role in eliminating peroxides generated during metabolism (By similarity) (196 aa)
TFIID subunit (47 kDa), involved in promoter binding and RNA polymerase II transcription initiation; Functions as a component 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 pre- initiation 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 selectivity, TFIIA and TFIIB interaction, chromatin modification (histone acetylation by TAF [...] (353 aa)
