STRINGSTRING
LCD1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"LCD1" - Essential protein required for the DNA integrity checkpoint pathways in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

LCD1Essential protein required for the DNA integrity checkpoint pathways; interacts physically with Mec1p; putative homolog of S. pombe Rad26 and human ATRIP; Forms a complex with the serine/threonine kinase MEC1 which activates checkpoint signaling upon genotoxic stresses. The MEC1-LCD1 complex is recruited by the single-strand-binding protein complex RPA to DNA lesions in order to initiate the DNA repair by homologous recombination, after the MRX-complex and TEL1 are displaced. Required for the recruitment of MEC1 to DNA lesions, the activation of CHK1 and RAD53 kinases and phosphorylati [...] (747 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MEC1
Genome integrity checkpoint protein and PI kinase superfamily member; signal transducer required for cell cycle arrest and transcriptional responses prompted by damaged or unreplicated DNA; monitors and participates in meiotic recombination; Serine/threonine protein kinase which activates checkpoint signaling upon genotoxic stresses such as ionizing radiation (IR), ultraviolet light (UV), or DNA replication stalling, thereby acting as a DNA damage sensor. Recognizes the substrate consensus sequence [ST]-Q. Recruited in complex with protein LCD1 by the single-strand-binding protein comp [...] (2368 aa)

RAD53
Protein kinase, required for cell-cycle arrest in response to DNA damage; activated by trans autophosphorylation when interacting with hyperphosphorylated Rad9p; also interacts with ARS1 and plays a role in initiation of DNA replication; Controls S-phase checkpoint as well as G1 and G2 DNA damage checkpoints. Phosphorylates proteins on serine, threonine, and tyrosine. Prevents entry into anaphase and mitotic exit after DNA damage via regulation of the Polo kinase CDC5. Seems to be involved in the phosphorylation of RPH1 (821 aa)
     
 
  0.979
CHK1
Serine/threonine kinase and DNA damage checkpoint effector, mediates cell cycle arrest via phosphorylation of Pds1p; phosphorylated by checkpoint signal transducer Mec1p; homolog of S. pombe and mammalian Chk1 checkpoint kinase; Serine/threonine-protein kinase which is required for checkpoint-mediated cell cycle arrest and activation of DNA repair in response to the presence of DNA damage or unreplicated DNA. May also negatively regulate cell cycle progression during unperturbed cell cycles. Controls phosphorylation and abundance of PDS1 to prevent anaphase entry. Also helps prevent mi [...] (527 aa)

RAD9
DNA damage-dependent checkpoint protein, required for cell-cycle arrest in G1/S, intra-S, and G2/M; transmits checkpoint signal by activating Rad53p and Chk1p; hyperphosphorylated by Mec1p and Tel1p; potential Cdc28p substrate; Essential for cell cycle arrest at the G2 stage following DNA damage by X-irradiation or inactivation of DNA ligase (1309 aa)
         
  0.936
DPB11
Replication initiation protein that loads DNA pol epsilon onto pre-replication complexes at origins; checkpoint sensor recruited to stalled replication forks by the checkpoint clamp complex where it activates Mec1p; ortholog of human TopBP1; Has a role in the initiation of DNA replication. Required at S-phase checkpoint. Required for the association of PSF1 with origins. Also required for the proper activation of RAD53 in response to DNA damage and replication blocks. Multicopy suppressor of DPB2 mutation. Overexpression restores the growth defect conferred by POL2 mutation (764 aa)
     
 
  0.926
MRC1
S-phase checkpoint protein required for DNA replication; interacts with and stabilizes Pol2p at stalled replication forks during stress, where it forms a pausing complex with Tof1p and is phosphorylated by Mec1p; protects uncapped telomeres; Required for normal DNA replication. Phosphorylated in response to DNA replication stress. Phosphorylation allows it to mediate the activation of RAD53 (1096 aa)
         
  0.924
CDC28
Catalytic subunit of the main cell cycle cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK); alternately associates with G1 cyclins (CLNs) and G2/M cyclins (CLBs) which direct the CDK to specific substrates; This protein is essential for the completion of the start, the controlling event, in the cell cycle. More than 200 substrates have been identified (298 aa)

SML1
Ribonucleotide reductase inhibitor involved in regulating dNTP production; regulated by Mec1p and Rad53p during DNA damage and S phase; Strong inhibitor of ribonucleotide reductase (RNR1) and is involved in regulating dNTP production (104 aa)
       
 
  0.907
DNA2
Tripartite DNA replication factor with single-stranded DNA-dependent ATPase, ATP-dependent nuclease, and helicase activities; required for Okazaki fragment processing; involved in DNA repair; cell-cycle dependent localization; Key enzyme involved in DNA replication and DNA repair. Involved in Okazaki fragments processing by cleaving long flaps that escape FEN1- flaps that are longer than 27 nucleotides are coated by replication protein A complex (RPA), leading to recruit DNA2 which cleaves the flap until it is too short to bind RPA and becomes a substrate for FEN1. Also involved in 5’- [...] (1522 aa)

DDC1
DNA damage checkpoint protein, part of a PCNA-like complex required for DNA damage response, required for pachytene checkpoint to inhibit cell cycle in response to unrepaired recombination intermediates; potential Cdc28p substrate; Component of the checkpoint clamp complex involved in the surveillance mechanism that allows the DNA repair pathways to act to restore the integrity of the DNA prior to DNA synthesis or separation of the replicated chromosomes. Associates with sites of DNA damage and modulates the MEC1 signaling pathway and the activation of RAD53 in response to DNA damage a [...] (612 aa)
