ECM11 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ECM11" - Non-essential protein apparently involved in meiosis, GFP fusion protein is present in discrete clusters in the nucleus throughout mitosis 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

ECM11Non-essential protein apparently involved in meiosis, GFP fusion protein is present in discrete clusters in the nucleus throughout mitosis; may be involved in maintaining chromatin structure; May be involved in cell wall organization and biogenesis (302 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Putative protein of unknown function; transcription is regulated by Ume6p and induced in response to alpha factor; Probable transcriptional activator involved in meiotic prophase and synaptonemal complex (SC) assembly (188 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)
Meiosis-specific protein that 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; Required for meiotic recombination. Mediates DNA cleavage that forms the double-strand breaks (DSB) that initiate meiotic recombination. The action of SPO11 is important in setting off a regulatory chain of events encompassing 5’ to 3’ resection. When there are no SPO11-DSBs, resection of a site specific VDE-DSB takes place but it is faster than in wild- [...] (398 aa)
Meiosis-specific protein involved in synaptonemal complex assembly; implicated in regulation of crossover formation; required for sporulation; Necessary for efficient spore formation (198 aa)
Essential ATP-binding protein required for DNA replication, component of the pre-replicative complex (pre-RC) which requires ORC to associate with chromatin and is in turn required for Mcm2-7p DNA association; homologous to S. pombe Cdc18p; Plays a crucial role in forming the pre-replicative complexes. Interacts with the origin recognition complex (ORC) and MCM2-7 helicase complex leading to the linking of those complexes and loading of the replicative helicase MCM2-7 onto the pre- replicative complexes. Required for the initiation of DNA replication and then actively participates in t [...] (513 aa)
Non-essential protein of unknown function; May be involved in cell wall organization and biogenesis (354 aa)
Putative protein of unknown function; RNA-binding protein that acts as a post-transcriptional regulator of phosphate metabolism by binding to the 3’-UTR region of PHO4 mRNA, decreasing its stability (PubMed-24206186). Acts by recognizing and binding N6-methyladenosine (m6A)-containing RNAs, a modification present at internal sites of mRNAs and some non- coding RNAs (PubMed-24269006, PubMed-26318451) (306 aa)
Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the vacuole, while HA-tagged protein is found in the soluble fraction, suggesting cytoplasmic localization (602 aa)
Non-essential protein of unknown function, likely exists as tetramer, may be regulated by the binding of small-molecule ligands (possibly sulfate ions), may have a role in yeast cell-wall biogenesis (104 aa)
SUMO E3 ligase; required for synaptonemal complex formation; localizes to synapsis initiation sites on meiotic chromosomes; potential Cdc28p substrate; Component of the synapsis initiation complex (SIC) necessary for the synaptonemal complex assembly. Stabilizes the ZIP2 component to the chromosomes. The SIC complex loads onto chromosomes and nucleates ZIP1 polymerization, a molecular zipper that acts to bring homologous chromosomes in close apposition, which is required for meiotic crossover. May also be involved in double strand break repair (482 aa)
