SXM1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SXM1" - Nuclear transport factor 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

SXM1Nuclear transport factor (karyopherin) involved in protein transport between the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm; similar to Nmd5p, Cse1p, Lph2p, and the human cellular apoptosis susceptibility protein, CAS1; Nuclear transport factor (karyopherin) involved in protein transport between the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Required for the nuclear import of ribosomal proteins (RPL11, RPL16, RPL25, RPL31A), the poly(A)-binding protein PAB1, the HO endonuclease or the tRNA and snRNA chaperone LHP1. Indirectly involved in nuclear mRNA export through its PAB1 nuclear import activity (944 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Karyopherin/importin that interacts with the nuclear pore complex; acts as the nuclear import receptor for specific proteins, including Pdr1p, Yap1p, Ste12p, and Aft1p; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for classical and arginine/glycine- rich nuclear localization signals (cNLS and rg-NLS) in cargo substrates (PubMed-15367670). Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be ribosomal proteins and ribosome biogenesis trans- and cis-acting factors (PubMed-9182759, PubMed-9321403, PubMed-15367670). Required for nuclear transport of YAP1, NO [...] (1089 aa)
Karyopherin, responsible for nuclear import of Spt15p, Sua7p, histones H2A and H2B, and Nap1p; amino terminus shows similarity to those of other importins, particularly Cse1p; localization is primarily nuclear; Required for nuclear protein import and mediates docking of import substrate to distinct nucleoporins. Serves a receptor for nuclear localization signals. Mediates the nuclear import of TATA-binding protein (TBP) and of histones H2A and H2B (1004 aa)
Karyopherin beta, mediates nuclear import of ribosomal proteins prior to assembly into ribosomes and import of histones H3 and H4; localizes to the nuclear pore, nucleus, and cytoplasm; exhibits genetic interactions with RAI1; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for nuclear localization signals (NLS) in cargo substrates. Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be ribosomal proteins (PubMed-9321403). Required for import of the ribbosomal assembly factor NMD3 (PubMed-12612077). May be involved in nuclear transport of YAP1 (PubMed-1127414 [...] (1113 aa)
Karyopherin beta, forms a complex with Srp1p/Kap60p; interacts with nucleoporins to mediate nuclear import of NLS-containing cargo proteins via the nuclear pore complex; regulates PC biosynthesis; GDP-to-GTP exchange factor for Gsp1p; Importin beta subunit that functions in nuclear protein import through association with the importin alpha subunit, which binds to the classical nuclear localization signal (cNLS) in cargo substrates (PubMed-7622450). Docking of the importin/substrate complex to the nuclear pore complex (NPC) is mediated by importin beta through binding to nucleoporin FxF [...] (861 aa)
Transportin or cytosolic karyopherin beta 2; functions in the rg-nuclear localization signal-mediated nuclear import/reimport of mRNA-binding proteins Nab2p and Hrp1p; regulates asymmetric protein synthesis in daughter cells during mitosis; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for arginine/glycine-rich nuclear localization signals (rg-NLS) and PY-NLS in cargo substrates. Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be mRNA-binding proteins. Required for nuclear transport of NAB2, HRP1/NAB4 and TFG2. Mediates docking of the importin/substrate [...] (918 aa)
Ran GTPase, GTP binding protein (mammalian Ranp homolog) involved in the maintenance of nuclear organization, RNA processing and transport; regulated by Srm1p, Rna1p, Yrb1p, Yrb2p, Yrp4p, Yrb30p, Cse1p and Kap95p; yeast Gsp2p homolog; GTP-binding protein involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport. Required for the import of protein into the nucleus and also for RNA export. Essential for cell viability. By analogy with Ras, Ran may be activated when GTP is exchanged for bound GDP by RCC1 and inactivated when GTP is hydrolyzed by Ran upon activation by RanGAP1 (219 aa)
Nucleoporin involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport, binds to either the nucleoplasmic or cytoplasmic faces of the nuclear pore complex depending on Ran-GTP levels; also has a role in chromatin organization; Functions as a component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC). NPC components, collectively referred to as nucleoporins (NUPs), can play the role of both NPC structural components and of docking or interaction partners for transiently associated nuclear transport factors. Active directional transport is assured by both, a Phe-Gly (FG) repeat affinity gradient for these transport facto [...] (720 aa)
Nuclear import receptor, mediates the nuclear localization of proteins involved in mRNA-nucleus export; promotes dissociation of mRNAs from the nucleus-cytoplasm mRNA shuttling protein Npl3p; required for retrograde import of mature tRNAs; Involved in mRNA transport from nucleus to cytoplasm (972 aa)
Adenylate cyclase, required for cAMP production and cAMP-dependent protein kinase signaling; the cAMP pathway controls a variety of cellular processes, including metabolism, cell cycle, stress response, stationary phase, and sporulation; Plays essential roles in regulation of cellular metabolism by catalyzing the synthesis of a second messenger, cAMP (2026 aa)
RNA polymerase I second largest subunit A135; DNA-dependent RNA polymerases catalyze the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates. Component of RNA polymerase I (Pol I) which synthesizes ribosomal RNA precursors. Besides, RNA polymerase I has intrinsic RNA cleavage activity. RPA190 and RPA135 both contribute to the polymerase catalytic activity and together form the Pol I active center. In addition, subunit RPA12 contributes a catalytic zinc ribbon that is required for RNA cleavage by Pol I. A single stranded DNA template strand of the pro [...] (1203 aa)
