PDC2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"PDC2" - Putative transcription factor for thiamine-regulated genes 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
PDC2Putative transcription factor for thiamine-regulated genes; required for expression of the two isoforms of pyruvate decarboxylase (PDC1 and PDC5) along with thiamine biosynthetic genes; mutant fails to grow on 2% glucose and thus is scored as inviab /.../er standard conditions; Essential for the synthesis of pyruvate decarboxylase. May be important for a high basal level of PDC gene expression or play a positive role in the autoregulation control of PDC1 and PDC5 (925 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Probable alpha-ketoisocaproate decarboxylase, may have a role in catabolism of amino acids to long-chain and complex alcohols; required for expression of enzymes involved in thiamine biosynthesis; One of five 2-oxo acid decarboxylases (PDC1, PDC5, PDC6, ARO10, and THI3) involved in amino acid catabolism. The enzyme catalyzes the decarboxylation of amino acids, which, in a first step, have been transaminated to the corresponding 2-oxo acids (alpha-keto-acids). In a third step, the resulting aldehydes are reduced to alcohols, collectively referred to as fusel oils or alcohols. Its prefer [...] (609 aa)
Telomere end-binding and capping protein, plays a key role with Pol12p in linking telomerase action with completion of lagging strand synthesis, and in a regulatory step required for telomere capping; Has a role in telomere length regulation and telomere end protection. Acts as an inhibitor of telomerase loading through its interaction with CDC13 (494 aa)
Essential iron-sulfur protein required for ribosome biogenesis and translation initiation and termination; facilitates binding of a multifactor complex (MFC) of initiation factors to the small ribosomal subunit; predicted ABC family ATPase; Component of the multifactor complex (MFC) involved in translation initiation. Required for the binding of MFC to the 40S ribosome. Required for the processing and nuclear export of the 60S and 40S ribosomal subunits (608 aa)
Plasma membrane transporter responsible for the uptake of thiamine, member of the major facilitator superfamily of transporters; mutation of human ortholog causes thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia; Responsible for intake of thiamine (598 aa)
Minor isoform of pyruvate decarboxylase, key enzyme in alcoholic fermentation, decarboxylates pyruvate to acetaldehyde, regulation is glucose- and ethanol-dependent, repressed by thiamine, involved in amino acid catabolism; Second most abundant of three pyruvate decarboxylases (PDC1, PDC5, PDC6) implicated in the nonoxidative conversion of pyruvate to acetaldehyde and carbon dioxide during alcoholic fermentation. Most of the produced acetaldehyde is subsequently reduced to ethanol, but some is required for cytosolic acetyl-CoA production for biosynthetic pathways. The enzyme is also on [...] (563 aa)
Component of serine palmitoyltransferase, responsible along with Lcb1p for the first committed step in sphingolipid synthesis, which is the condensation of serine with palmitoyl-CoA to form 3-ketosphinganine; Catalytic subunit of serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT), which catalyzes the committed step in the synthesis of sphingolipids, the condensation of serine with palmitoyl CoA to form the long chain base 3-ketosphinganine (561 aa)
Transcriptional activator of thiamine biosynthetic genes; interacts with regulatory factor Thi3p to control expression of thiamine biosynthetic genes with respect to thiamine availability; acts together with Pdc2p to respond to thiaminediphosphate d /.../ possibly as related to carbon source availability; zinc finger protein of the Zn(II)2Cys6 type; Positive regulator of thiamine biosynthesis (450 aa)
Regulatory subunit of Cdc7p-Dbf4p kinase complex, required for Cdc7p kinase activity and initiation of DNA replication; phosphorylates the Mcm2-7 family of proteins; cell cycle regulated; Regulatory subunit of the CDC7-DBF4 kinase, also called DBF4-dependent kinase (DDK), which is involved in cell cycle regulation of premitotic and premeiotic chromosome replication and in chromosome segregation. DDK plays an essential role in initiating DNA replication at replication origins by phosphorylating the MCM2 and MCM4 subunits of the MCM2-7 helicase complex. DBF4 recruits the catalytic subuni [...] (704 aa)
Major of three pyruvate decarboxylase isozymes, key enzyme in alcoholic fermentation, decarboxylates pyruvate to acetaldehyde; subject to glucose-, ethanol-, and autoregulation; involved in amino acid catabolism; Major of three pyruvate decarboxylases (PDC1, PDC5, PDC6) implicated in the nonoxidative conversion of pyruvate to acetaldehyde and carbon dioxide during alcoholic fermentation. Most of the produced acetaldehyde is subsequently reduced to ethanol, but some is required for cytosolic acetyl-CoA production for biosynthetic pathways. The enzyme is also one of five 2-oxo acid decar [...] (563 aa)
Nucleosome assembly factor, involved in chromatin assembly and disassembly, anti-silencing protein that causes derepression of silent loci when overexpressed; plays a role in regulating Ty1 transposition; Histone chaperone that facilitates histone deposition and histone exchange and removal during nucleosome assembly and disassembly. Facilitates histone deposition through both replication-dependent and replication-independent chromatin assembly pathways. Cooperates with chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF-1) to promote replication-dependent chromatin assembly and with the HIR complex to p [...] (279 aa)
