STRINGSTRING
MKC7 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MKC7" - GPI-anchored aspartyl protease, member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance 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

MKC7GPI-anchored aspartyl protease, member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance; shares functions with Yap3p and Kex2p; Cleaves proteins C-terminally to the most C-terminal basic residue. Can process the alpha-mating factor precursor. Required for cell wall integrity (596 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
KEX2
Subtilisin-like protease (proprotein convertase), a calcium-dependent serine protease involved in the activation of proproteins of the secretory pathway; Processing of precursors of alpha-factors and killer toxin (814 aa)
     
 
  0.967
YPS1
Aspartic protease, member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance; attached to the plasma membrane via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; Cleaves proteins C-terminally to mono- and paired-basic residues. Involved in the shedding of a subset of GPI-anchored plasma membrane proteins from the cell surface, including itself, GAS1 and MSB2. May also play a role in the maturation of GPI- mannoproteins associated with the cell wall. Can process the alpha-mating factor precursor. Required for cell wall integrity (569 aa)
       
0.929
MSB2
Mucin family member involved in the Cdc42p- and MAP kinase-dependent filamentous growth signaling pathway; also functions as an osmosensor in parallel to the Sho1p-mediated pathway; potential Cdc28p substrate; Plasma membrane signaling mucin that promotes activation of the MAPK for the filamentous growth pathway. Partially redundant with the SHO1 osmosensing branch for the activation of STE11 (1306 aa)
         
  0.853
YOS9
ER quality-control lectin; integral subunit of the HRD ligase; binds to glycans with terminal alpha-1,6 linked mannose on misfolded N-glycosylated proteins and participates in targeting proteins to ERAD; member of the OS-9 protein family; Lectin involved in the quality control of the secretory pathway. As a member of the endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation lumenal (ERAD-L) surveillance system, targets misfolded endoplasmic reticulum lumenal glycoproteins for degradation. The recognition of targets is N-glycan specific (542 aa)
       
 
  0.760
YPS7
Putative GPI-anchored aspartic protease, member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance; located in the cytoplasm and endoplasmic reticulum (596 aa)
       
 
0.741
SAP4
Protein required for function of the Sit4p protein phosphatase, member of a family of similar proteins that form complexes with Sit4p, including Sap155p, Sap185p, and Sap190p; Associates with the SIT4 phosphatase in a cell cycle dependent manner. May be directly or indirectly involved in SIT4- dependent functions in budding and in normal G1 cyclin expression (By similarity) (818 aa)
           
  0.697
PRC1
Vacuolar carboxypeptidase Y (proteinase C, CPY); broad-specificity C-terminal exopeptidase involved in non-specific protein degradation in the vacuole; member of the serine carboxypeptidase family; Involved in degradation of small peptides. Digests preferentially peptides containing an aliphatic or hydrophobic residue in P1’ position, as well as methionine, leucine or phenylalanine in P1 position of ester substrate (532 aa)
     
 
  0.694
MF(ALPHA)1
Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)2, although MF(ALPHA)1 produces most alpha-factor; The active factor is excreted into the culture medium by haploid cells of the alpha mating type and acts on cells of the opposite mating type (type A). It mediates the conjugation process between the two types by inhibiting the initiation of DNA synthesis in type a cells and synchronizing them with type alpha (165 aa)
           
  0.686
PRB1
Vacuolar proteinase B (yscB), a serine protease of the subtilisin family; involved in protein degradation in the vacuole and required for full protein degradation during sporulation; activity inhibited by Pbi2p; Vacuolar proteinase B involved in protein degradation in the vacuole. Among other substrates, acts on carboxypeptidase Y (cpY/PRC1) to activate it by processing its Pro-peptide. Required for meiosis and spore formation, and for optimal survival in stationary phase (635 aa)
     
 
  0.679
ACT1
Actin, structural protein involved in cell polarization, endocytosis, and other cytoskeletal functions; Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells (375 aa)
