RGA2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"RGA2" - GTPase-activating protein for the polarity-establishment protein Cdc42p 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

RGA2GTPase-activating protein for the polarity-establishment protein Cdc42p; implicated in control of septin organization, pheromone response, and haploid invasive growth; regulated by Pho85p and Cdc28p; GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for CDC42 and/or RHO1 (1009 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Small rho-like GTPase, essential for establishment and maintenance of cell polarity; mutants have defects in the organization of actin and septins; Involved in development of cell polarity during the cell division cycle, and essential for bud emergence. Affects signaling in the pheromone-response pathway through the STE20 protein kinase. Negatively regulated by the GTPase-activating proteins RGA1, BEM3, and BEM4 (191 aa)
Protein containing SH3-domains, involved in establishing cell polarity and morphogenesis; functions as a scaffold protein for complexes that include Cdc24p, Ste5p, Ste20p, and Rsr1p; Necessary for cell polarization during vegetative growth. May link the cytoskeleton to morphogenic determinants on the cell surface (551 aa)
Non-essential small GTPase of the Rho/Rac subfamily of Ras-like proteins, likely involved in protein kinase C (Pkc1p)-dependent signal transduction pathway that controls cell integrity; Negatively regulates a MAP kinase branch, downstream of SLT2, of the PKC1-mediated signal transduction pathway (331 aa)
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF or GDP-release factor) for Cdc42p; required for polarity establishment and maintenance, and mutants have morphological defects in bud formation and shmooing; Promotes the exchange of CDC42-bound GDP by GTP. Controls the polarity of calmodulin, and the calcium regulatory process of bud emergence. CDC24 may be involved in the initial selection and organization of the budding site (854 aa)
GTPase-activating protein for the polarity-establishment protein Cdc42p; implicated in control of septin organization, pheromone response, and haploid invasive growth; GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for CDC42 and/or RHO1. Negative regulator of the pheromone-response pathway through the STE20 protein kinase; acts at a step between the G-protein and the MAP kinase module. Dominant suppressor of bud emergence defect caused by deletion of IPL2/BEM2. Involved in the control of polarized cell growth and proper bud site selection (1007 aa)
Protein involved in bud-site selection, Bud14p-Glc7p complex is a cortical regulator of dynein; inhibitor of the actin assembly factor Bnr1p (formin); diploid mutants display a random budding pattern instead of the wild-type bipolar pattern; Important for bud site selection. Seems to be a regulatory subunit of the BUD14-GLC7 type-I phosphatase complex. The BUD14-GLC7 complex is necessary to regulate microtubule dynamics at the cortex and may function as a specific activator of the dynein complex (709 aa)
Component of the septin ring that is required for cytokinesis; septins are GTP-binding proteins that assemble into rod-like hetero-oligomers that can associate with other rods to form filaments; septin rings at the mother-bud neck act as scaffolds for recruiting cell division factors and as barriers to prevent diffusion of specific proteins between mother and daughter cells; Septins are GTPases involved in cytokinesis that assemble early in the cell cycle as a patch at the incipient bud site and form a ring approximate 15 minutes before bud emergence, which transforms into an hour-glas [...] (407 aa)
Serine-threonine protein kinase; component of a glucose-sensing system that inhibits growth in response to glucose availability; upon nutrient deprivation Yak1p phosphorylates Pop2p to regulate mRNA deadenylation, the co-repressor Crf1p to inhibit t /.../iption of ribosomal genes, and the stress-responsive transcription factors Hsf1p and Msn2p; nuclear localization negatively regulated by the Ras/PKA signaling pathway in the presence of glucose; Negative regulator of the cell cycle acting downstream of the cAMP-dependent protein kinase. Part of a glucose-sensing system involved in grow [...] (807 aa)
GTP-binding protein of the rho subfamily of Ras-like proteins, involved in establishment of cell polarity; regulates protein kinase C (Pkc1p) and the cell wall synthesizing enzyme 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (Fks1p and Gsc2p); Acts as a central regulator in the cell wall integrity signaling pathway, which is regulated by the cell cycle and in response to various types of cell wall stress. Integrates signals from different cell surface sensors, and activates a set of effectors, regulating processes including beta-glucan synthesis at the site of wall remodeling, gene expression related to c [...] (209 aa)
Catalytic subunit of the main cell cycle cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK); alternately associates with G1 cyclins (CLNs) and G2/M cyclins (CLBs) which direct the CDK to specific substrates; This protein is essential for the completion of the start, the controlling event, in the cell cycle. More than 200 substrates have been identified (298 aa)
