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
STL1Sugar transporter STL1; Glycerol proton symporter of the plasma membrane; subject to glucose-induced inactivation, strongly but transiently induced when cells are subjected to osmotic shock (569 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mitogen-activated protein kinase involved in osmoregulation; controls global reallocation of RNAPII during osmotic shock; mediates recruitment/activation of RNAPII at Hot1p-dependent promoters; binds calmodulin; stimulates antisense transcription to activate CDC28; defines novel S-phase checkpoint with Mrc1p that prevent replication/transcription conflicts; nuclear form represses pseudohyphal growth; autophosphorylates; protein abundance increases under DNA replication stress
Glycerol uptake/efflux facilitator protein; Aquaglyceroporin, plasma membrane channel; involved in efflux of glycerol and xylitol, and in uptake of acetic acid, arsenite, and antimonite; key factor in maintaining redox balance by mediating passive diffusion of glycerol; phosphorylated by Hog1p MAPK under acetate stress; deletion improves xylose fermentation; regulated by Rgc1p and Ask10p, which are regulated by Hog1p phosphorylation under osmotic stress; phosphorylation by Ypk1p required to maintain an open state; Belongs to the MIP/aquaporin (TC 1.A.8) family
High-osmolarity-induced transcription protein 1; Transcription factor for glycerol biosynthetic genes; required for the transient induction of glycerol biosynthetic genes GPD1 and GPP2 in response to high osmolarity; targets Hog1p to osmostress responsive promoters; has similarity to Msn1p and Gcr1p; Belongs to the HOT1 family
NAD-dependent glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase; key enzyme of glycerol synthesis, essential for growth under osmotic stress; expression regulated by high-osmolarity glycerol response pathway; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress; constitutively inactivated via phosphorylation by the protein kinases Ypk1p and Ypk2p, dephosphorylation increases catalytic activity; forms a heterodimer with Pnc1p to facilitate its peroxisomal import
Cytosolic catalase T; has a role in protection from oxidative damage by hydrogen peroxide
Glycerol-1-phosphate phosphohydrolase 2; DL-glycerol-3-phosphate phosphatase involved in glycerol biosynthesis; also known as glycerol-1-phosphatase; induced in response to hyperosmotic or oxidative stress, and during diauxic shift; GPP2 has a paralog, GPP1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the HAD-like hydrolase superfamily. DOG/GPP family
Glycerol-1-phosphate phosphohydrolase 1; Constitutively expressed DL-glycerol-3-phosphate phosphatase; also known as glycerol-1-phosphatase; involved in glycerol biosynthesis, induced in response to both anaerobic and osmotic stress; GPP1 has a paralog, GPP2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
CRE-binding bZIP protein SKO1; Basic leucine zipper transcription factor of the ATF/CREB family; forms a complex with Tup1p and Cyc8p to both activate and repress transcription; cytosolic and nuclear protein involved in osmotic and oxidative stress responses
MAP kinase kinase of the HOG signaling pathway; activated under severe osmotic stress; mitophagy-specific regulator; plays a role in regulating Ty1 transposition; Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase kinase subfamily
3-methylbutanal reductase and NADPH-dependent methylglyoxal reductase; stress induced (osmotic, ionic, oxidative, heat shock and heavy metals); regulated by the HOG pathway; restores resistance to glycolaldehyde by coupling reduction of glycolaldehyde to ethylene glycol and oxidation of NADPH to NADP+; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress; methylglyoxal reductase (NADPH-dependent) is also known as D-lactaldehyde dehydrogenase
