STRING protein interaction network
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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
ECM11Meiosis-specific protein; component of the Synaptonemal Complex (SC) along with Gmc2p; required for efficient crossover formation and for the efficient loading of the SC transverse filament protein, Zip1p; is SUMOlytaed in a Gmc2p manner, and SUMOylation is required for its function in meiosis; GFP fusion protein is present in discrete clusters in the nucleus throughout mitosis; may be involved in maintaining chromatin structure (302 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Grand meiotic recombination cluster protein 2; Protein involved in meiotic crossing over; component of the Synaptonemal Complex (SC) along with Ecm11p; required for the efficient loading of the SC transverse filament protein, Zip1p; promotes SUMOylation of Ecm11p; mutants are delayed in meiotic nuclear division and are defective in synaptonemal complex assembly; transcription is regulated by Ume6p and induced in response to alpha factor
Transverse filament protein of the synaptonemal complex; required for normal levels of meiotic recombination and pairing between homologous chromosome during meiosis; required for meiotic recombination between non-allelc sites; potential Cdc28p substrate
Sporulation-specific protein 22; Meiosis-specific protein essential for chromosome synapsis; involved in completion of nuclear divisions during meiosis; induced early in meiosis
SUMO E3 ligase; catalyzes sumoylation of Yku70p/80p and Sir4p promoting telomere anchoring to the nuclear envelope and regulating telomerase activity; DNA-bound form catalyzes a DNA-damaged triggered sumoylation wave resulting in multisite modification of several DNA repair proteins, enhancing interactions between these proteins and accelerating repair; sumoylates Cse4p, a prerequisite for STUbL-mediated Ub-dependent degradation; role in telomere length maintenance; Belongs to the PIAS family
Meiosis-specific protein that initiates meiotic recombination; initiates meiotic recombination by catalyzing the formation of double-strand breaks in DNA via a transesterification reaction; required for homologous chromosome pairing and synaptonemal complex formation
MutS protein homolog 4; Protein involved in meiotic recombination; required for normal levels of crossing over, colocalizes with Zip2p to discrete foci on meiotic chromosomes, has homology to bacterial MutS protein; Belongs to the DNA mismatch repair MutS family
Pachytene checkpoint protein 2; Hexameric ring ATPase that remodels chromosome axis protein Hop1p; nucleolar component of the pachytene checkpoint, which prevents chromosome segregation when recombination and chromosome synapsis are defective; also represses meiotic interhomolog recombination in rDNA; required for meiotic double-stranded break formation
Meiosis-specific protein; involved in normal synaptonemal complex formation and pairing between homologous chromosomes during meiosis; relocalizes from mitochondrion to cytoplasm upon DNA replication stress; Belongs to the ZIP2 family
Meiosis-specific transcription factor; required for exit from pachytene and for full meiotic recombination; activates middle sporulation genes; competes with Sum1p for binding to promoters containing middle sporulation elements (MSE)
Protein component of the synaptonemal complex axial elements; involved in chromosome segregation during the first meiotic division; critical for coupling checkpoint signaling to SC formation; promotes interhomolog recombination by phosphorylating Hop1p; also interacts with Mec3p and Ddc1p
