ESC2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ESC2" - Sumo-like domain 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

ESC2Sumo-like domain protein; prevents accumulation of toxic intermediates during replication-associated recombinational repair; roles in silencing, lifespan, chromatid cohesion and the intra-S-phase DNA damage checkpoint; RENi family member; May be a substrate targeting component of a cullin-RING- based E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex RTT101(MMS1-ESC2). Involved in HMR and telomere silencing via the recruitment or stabilizing of the SIR (silent information regulators) complex (456 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Nucleolar DNA helicase of the RecQ family; involved in genome integrity maintenance; regulates chromosome synapsis and meiotic joint molecule/crossover formation; potential role as repressor of a subset of rapamycin responsive genes; rapidly lost in /.../nse to rapamycin in Rrd1p-dependent manner; similar to human BLM and WRN proteins implicated in Bloom and Werner syndromes; ATP-dependent DNA helicase able to unwind duplex DNA or DNA- RNA heteroduplex (PubMed-9545297). Displacement of the DNA strand occurs in the 3’ to 5’ direction with respect to the single-stranded DNA flanking the [...] (1447 aa)
Subunit of the COP9 signalosome (CSN) and non-ATPase regulatory subunit of the 26S proteasome lid, similar to mammalian p55 subunit and to another S. cerevisiae regulatory subunit, Rpn7p; Rpn5p is an essential protein; Acts as a regulatory subunit of the 26S proteasome which is involved in the ATP-dependent degradation of ubiquitinated proteins (445 aa)
DNA helicase and DNA-dependent ATPase involved in DNA repair, needed for proper timing of commitment to meiotic recombination and transition from Meiosis I to II; blocks trinucleotide repeat expansion; affects genome stability; ATP-dependent DNA helicase involved in DNA repair at least for UV-induced lesions. The polarity of the helicase activity was determined to be 3’ to 5’ (1174 aa)
Subunit of the Slx5-Slx8 SUMO-targeted ubiquitin ligase (STUbL) complex, stimulated by SUMO-modified substrates; contains a RING domain and two SIMs (SUMO-interacting motifs); forms SUMO-dependent nuclear foci, including DNA repair centers; Mediates ubiquitination and subsequent desumoylation/degradation of sumoylated proteins and proteins containing SUMO-like domains. Promotes UBC4-dependent ubiquitination that mediates the proteolytic down-regulation of sumoylated proteins. Involved in the stimulation of ubiquitin conjugating enzymes, including UBC1, UBC4, UBC5 and UBC13-MMS2. Acts a [...] (619 aa)
Protein involved in silencing at mating-type loci HML and HMR; recruitment to silent chromatin requires interactions with Orc1p and with Sir4p, through a common Sir1p domain; binds to centromeric chromatin; Involved in the establishment, but not the maintenance, of heterochromatic silencing at the cryptic mating-type loci HMR and HML. Is recruited by interacting with the ORC1 subunit of the origin recognition complex (ORC), which binds to HML-I or HMR-E silencers, DNA elements that direct the formation of silent chromatin at the mating-type loci. Establishes transcriptional silencing b [...] (654 aa)
Endonuclease involved in processing DNA during recombination and repair; cleaves branched structures in a complex with Slx1p; involved in Rad1p/Rad10p-dependent removal of 3’-nonhomologous tails during DSBR via single-strand annealing; Regulatory subunit that interacts with and increases the activity of different structure-specific endonucleases. Has several distinct roles in protecting genome stability by resolving diverse forms of deleterious DNA structures. Component of the SLX1-SLX4 structure-specific endonuclease that resolves DNA secondary structures generated during DNA repair a [...] (748 aa)
Subunit of an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex involved in resolving replication intermediates or preventing the damage caused by blocked replication forks; regulates Ty1 transposition; involved with Rtt101p in nonfunctional rRNA decay; Component of multiple cullin-RING-based E3 ubiquitin- protein ligase complexes (CRLs), which mediate the ubiquitination of target proteins. The CRL associates with CDC34 as the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme. The functional specificity of the CRL depends on the type of the associated substrate receptor protein. RTT101(MMS1-MMS22) promotes fork progression t [...] (1407 aa)
S-phase checkpoint protein required for DNA replication; interacts with and stabilizes Pol2p at stalled replication forks during stress, where it forms a pausing complex with Tof1p and is phosphorylated by Mec1p; protects uncapped telomeres; Required for normal DNA replication. Phosphorylated in response to DNA replication stress. Phosphorylation allows it to mediate the activation of RAD53 (1096 aa)
Member of the DEAH family of helicases, functions in an error-free DNA damage bypass pathway that involves homologous recombination, binds to flap DNA and stimulates activity of Rad27p and Dna2p; mutations confer a mutator phenotype; ATP-dependent DNA helicase involved in DNA damage repair by homologous recombination and in genome maintenance (PubMed-10880470, PubMed-15126389, PubMed-15634678, PubMed-16121259). Capable of unwinding D-loops. Plays a role in limiting crossover recombinants during mitotic DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair (PubMed-19136626). Component of a FANCM-MHF com [...] (993 aa)
Conserved NAD+ dependent histone deacetylase of the Sirtuin family involved in regulation of lifespan; plays roles in silencing at HML, HMR, telomeres, and the rDNA locus; negatively regulates initiation of DNA replication; NAD-dependent deacetylase, which participates in a wide range of cellular events including chromosome silencing, chromosome segregation, DNA recombination and the determination of life span.
