DYN2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"DYN2" - Cytoplasmic light chain dynein, microtubule motor 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

Gene Fusion
DYN2Cytoplasmic light chain dynein, microtubule motor protein; proposed to be involved in the assembly of the nuclear pore complex; Acts as one of several non-catalytic accessory components of the cytoplasmic dynein complex that are thought to be involved in linking dynein to cargos and to adapter proteins that regulate dynein function. Cytoplasmic dynein 1 acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. May play a role in changing or maintaining the spatial distribution of cytoskeletal structures (By similarity) (92 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Dynein intermediate chain, acts in the cytoplasmic dynein pathway, forms cortical cytoplasmic microtubule capture site with Num1p; null mutant is defective in nuclear migration, essential in the absence of CIN8; Required for viability in the absence of the kinesin- related CIN8 mitotic motor. May be a dynein intermediate chain (533 aa)
Cytoplasmic heavy chain dynein, microtubule motor protein, required for anaphase spindle elongation; involved in spindle assembly, chromosome movement, and spindle orientation during cell division, targeted to microtubule tips by Pac1p; Cytoplasmic dynein acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. Dynein has ATPase activity; the force-producing power stroke is thought to occur on release of ADP. Required to maintain uniform nuclear distribution in hyphae. May play an important role in the proper orientation of the mitotic sp [...] (4092 aa)
Peroxisomal membrane peroxin that is a central component of the peroxisomal protein import machinery; interacts with both PTS1 (Pex5p) and PTS2 (Pex7p), peroxisomal matrix protein signal recognition factors and membrane receptor Pex13p; Component of the peroxisomal translocation machinery with PEX13 and PEX17. Interacts with both the PTS1 and PTS2 receptors. Binds directly to PEX17 (341 aa)
Dynein light intermediate chain (LIC); localizes with dynein, null mutant is defective in nuclear migration; Component of the cytoplasmic dynein which acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. May play an important role in the proper orientation of the mitotic spindle into the budding daughter cell yeast. Probably required for normal progression of the cell cycle (312 aa)
Nucleoporin, subunit of the Nup82 subcomplex of the nuclear pore; part of the nuclear pore that is found exclusively on the cytoplasmic side; required for mRNA export; regulates ADP release from the ATP-dependent RNA helicase Dbp5p; 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 [...] (1460 aa)
Integral peroxisomal membrane protein required for translocation of peroxisomal matrix proteins, interacts with the PTS1 signal recognition factor Pex5p and the PTS2 signal recognition factor Pex7p, forms a complex with Pex14p and Pex17p; Component of the peroxisomal translocation machinery with PEX14 and PEX17. Interacts with the PTS1 receptor (PAS10/PEX5) (386 aa)
Chaperone and import receptor for newly-synthesized class I peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs), binds PMPs in the cytoplasm and delivers them to the peroxisome for subsequent insertion into the peroxisomal membrane; Required for proper post-translational import and stabilization of peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs). Acts as a cytosolic import receptor for PMPs and delivers them to the docking factor PEX3 at the peroxisomal membrane for subsequent insertion into the membrane. Acts as a chaperone in stabilizing or maintaining PMPs in the lipid bilayer. Directs PEX17, a peripheral co [...] (342 aa)
Peroxisomal membrane protein required for medium-chain fatty acid oxidation and peroxisome proliferation, possibly by inducing membrane curvature; localization regulated by phosphorylation; transcription regulated by Adr1p and Pip2p-Oaf1p; Involved in peroxisomal proliferation. Promotes peroxisome division and biogenesis (236 aa)
Peroxisomal membrane signal receptor for the C-terminal tripeptide signal sequence (PTS1) of peroxisomal matrix proteins, required for peroxisomal matrix protein import; also proposed to have PTS1-receptor independent functions; Binds to the C-terminal PTS1-type tripeptide peroxisomal targeting signal (SKL-type) and plays an essential role in peroxisomal protein import (612 aa)
Membrane peroxin of the peroxisomal importomer complex; complex facilitates the import of peroxisomal matrix proteins; required for peroxisome biogenesis; Component of the peroxisomal translocation machinery with PEX13 and PEX14. Interacts indirectly with the PTS1 receptor (PAS10/PEX5) and directly binds to PEX14. Required for import of both PTS1 and PTS2 proteins (199 aa)
