SIZ1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SIZ1" - SUMO/Smt3 ligase that promotes the attachment of sumo (Smt3p 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

SIZ1SUMO/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)    
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)
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)
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme involved in the error-free DNA postreplication repair pathway; interacts with Mms2p to assemble ubiquitin chains at the Ub Lys-63 residue; DNA damage triggers redistribution from the cytoplasm to the nucleus; Has a role in the DNA error-free postreplication repair (PRR) pathway. The UBC13/MMS2 heterodimer catalyzes the synthesis of non-canonical poly-ubiquitin chains that are linked through ’Lys-63’ (153 aa)
Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), functions as the sliding clamp for DNA polymerase delta; may function as a docking site for other proteins required for mitotic and meiotic chromosomal DNA replication and for DNA repair; This protein is an auxiliary protein of DNA polymerase delta and is involved in the control of eukaryotic DNA replication by increasing the polymerase’s processibility during elongation of the leading strand. Involved in DNA repair (258 aa)
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme variant involved in error-free postreplication repair; forms a heteromeric complex with Ubc13p, an active ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme; cooperates with chromatin-associated RING finger proteins, Rad18p and Rad5p; Has a role in the DNA error-free postreplication repair (PRR) pathway. Lacks catalytic activity by itself. The UBC13/MMS2 heterodimer catalyzes the synthesis of non-canonical poly- ubiquitin chains that are linked through ’Lys-63’ (137 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)
Topoisomerase II, relieves torsional strain in DNA by cleaving and re-sealing the phosphodiester backbone of both positively and negatively supercoiled DNA; cleaves complementary strands; localizes to axial cores in meiosis; Control of topological states of DNA by transient breakage and subsequent rejoining of DNA strands. Topoisomerase II makes double-strand breaks. Essential during mitosis and meiosis for proper segregation of daughter chromosomes (1428 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)
SUMO ligase and component of the SMC5-SMC6 complex; this complex plays a key role in the removal of X-shaped DNA structures that arise between sister chromatids during DNA replication and repair; mutants are sensitive to methyl methanesulfonate and /.../ncreased spontaneous mutation and mitotic recombination; Acts as an E3 ligase mediating SUMO/Smt3 attachment to SMC5 and YKU70. Acts in a DNA repair pathway for removal of UV- induced DNA damage that is distinct from classical nucleotide excision repair and in repair of ionizing radiation damage. Functions in homologous recombination r [...] (267 aa)
SUMO E3 ligase, catalyzes the covalent attachment of SUMO (Smt3p) to proteins; primary E3 ligase for Sir4p; sumoylates Yku70p/Yku80p and Sir4p in vivo to promote chromatin anchoring; promotes telomere anchoring to the nuclear envelope; involved in m /.../ance of proper telomere length; May act as an E3 ligase mediating SUMO/Smt3 attachment to septins. May be involved in chromosome maintenance (726 aa)
