UBA2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"UBA2" - Subunit of heterodimeric nuclear SUMO activating enzyme E1 with Aos1p 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

UBA2Subunit of heterodimeric nuclear SUMO activating enzyme E1 with Aos1p; activates Smt3p (SUMO) before its conjugation to proteins (sumoylation), which may play a role in protein targeting; essential for viability; The dimeric enzyme acts as a SMT3 E1 ligase. It mediates ATP-dependent activation of SMT3 and formation of a thioester with a conserved cysteine residue on AOS1 (636 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SUMO-conjugating enzyme involved in the Smt3p conjugation pathway; nuclear protein required for S- and M-phase cyclin degradation and mitotic control; involved in proteolysis mediated by the anaphase-promoting complex cyclosome (APCC); E2 ubiquitin-like--protein ligase mediating SUMO/Smt3 attachment to septins and PCNA. Seems to be involved in degradation of S- (CLB5) and M-phase cyclins (CLB2) (157 aa)
Subunit of a heterodimeric nuclear SUMO activating enzyme (E1) with Uba2p; activates Smt3p (SUMO) before its conjugation to proteins (sumoylation), which may play a role in protein targeting; essential for viability; Could be involved in a ubiquitin-related process important for DNA damage tolerance (347 aa)
Ubiquitin-like protein of the SUMO family, conjugated to lysine residues of target proteins; regulates chromatid cohesion, chromosome segregation, APC-mediated proteolysis, DNA replication and septin ring dynamics; phosphorylated at Ser2; Not known; suppressor of MIF2 mutations (101 aa)
Peptidase that deconjugates Smt3/SUMO-1 peptides from proteins, plays a role in chromosome cohesion at centromeric regions and recovery from checkpoint arrest induced by DNA damage or DNA replication defects; potential Cdc28p substrate; Insertion mutation in SMT4 confers temperature and benomyl sensitivity; high copy suppressor of a temperature sensitive mutation in MIF2 (1034 aa)
Ubiquitin, becomes conjugated to proteins, marking them for selective degradation via the ubiquitin-26S proteasome system; essential for the cellular stress response; encoded as a polyubiquitin precursor comprised of 5 head-to-tail repeats; Ubiquitin exists either covalently attached to another protein, or free (unanchored). When covalently bound, it is conjugated to target proteins via an isopeptide bond either as a monomer (monoubiquitin), a polymer linked via different Lys residues of the ubiquitin (polyubiquitin chains) or a linear polymer linked via the initiator Met of the ubiqui [...] (381 aa)
Enzyme that mediates the conjugation of Rub1p, a ubiquitin-like protein, to other proteins; related to E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes; Accepts the ubiquitin-like protein NEDD8/RUB1 from the UBA3-ULA1 E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. The major substrate is CDC53/Cullin (188 aa)
Protease that specifically cleaves Smt3p protein conjugates; required for cell cycle progression; associates with nucleoporins and may interact with septin rings during telophase; sequestered to the nucleolus under stress conditions; Protease that catalyzes two essential functions in the SUMO pathway- processing of full-length SMT3 to its mature form and deconjugation of SMT3 from targeted proteins. Has an essential role in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle (621 aa)
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2), involved in postreplication repair (as a heterodimer with Rad18p), DSBR and checkpoint control (as a heterodimer with Bre1p), ubiquitin-mediated N-end rule protein degradation (as a heterodimer with Ubr1p; Catalyzes the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to other proteins. In association with the E3 enzyme BRE1 and LGE1, it plays a role in transcription regulation by catalyzing the monoubiquitination of histone H2B to form H2BK123ub1. H2BK123ub1 gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation, elongation by RNA polymerase II, telomeric si [...] (172 aa)
SUMO/Smt3 ligase that promotes the attachment of sumo (Smt3p; small ubiquitin-related modifier) to proteins; binds Ubc9p and may bind septins; specifically required for sumoylation of septins in vivo; localized to the septin ring; Acts as an E3 ligase mediating SUMO/Smt3 attachment to septins and PCNA. May be involved in chromosome maintenance (904 aa)
Ubiquitin-like protein with similarity to mammalian NEDD8; conjugation (neddylation) substrates include the cullins Cdc53p, Rtt101p, and Cul3p; activated by Ula1p and Uba3p (E1 enzyme pair); conjugation mediated by Ubc12p (E2 enzyme); Ubiquitin-like protein modifier that can be covalently attached to lysine residues of target proteins. Activated by the dimeric UBA3-ULA1 E1 enzyme and conjugated by the E2 UBC12 to substrate proteins. RUB1-conjugated (neddylated) substrate proteins include the cullins CDC53, RTT101 and CUL3, and the modification enhances the ubiquitin-ligase activity of [...] (77 aa)
