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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
IRC22Increased recombination centers protein 22; Protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion localizes to the ER; YEL001C is non-essential; null mutant displays increased levels of spontaneous Rad52p foci; Belongs to the IRC22 family (225 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Peptidyl-trna hydrolase, pth2 family; Peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase 2; One of two mitochondrially-localized peptidyl-tRNA hydrolases; negatively regulates the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway via interactions with ubiquitin-like ubiquitin-associated proteins; dispensable for cell growth; see also PTH1
Nuclear-enriched ubiquitin-like polyubiquitin-binding protein; required for spindle pole body (SPB) duplication and for transit through the G2/M phase of the cell cycle; involved in proteolysis; interacts with the proteasome; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress
Aspartic proteinase MKC7; GPI-anchored aspartyl protease; member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance; shares functions with Yap3p and Kex2p; MKC7 has a paralog, YPS1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
DNA damage-inducible v-SNARE binding protein; role in suppression of protein secretion; may play a role in S-phase checkpoint control; has ubiquitin-associated (UBA), ubiquitin-like (UBL), and retroviral-like proteinase (RVP) domains
Aspartic proteinase yapsin-6; Putative GPI-anchored aspartic protease; member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance
Aspartic proteinase yapsin-3; Aspartic protease; member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance; attached to the plasma membrane via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; Belongs to the peptidase A1 family
Aspartic proteinase 3; Aspartic protease; hyperglycosylated member of the yapsin family of proteases, attached to the plasma membrane via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; involved in nutrient limitation-induced cleavage of the extracellular inhibitory domain of signaling mucin Msb2p, resulting in activation of the filamentous growth MAPK pathway; involved with other yapsins in the cell wall integrity response; role in KEX2-independent processing of the alpha factor precursor
L-homoserine-O-acetyltransferase; catalyzes the conversion of homoserine to O-acetyl homoserine which is the first step of the methionine biosynthetic pathway; Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. MetX family
UV excision repair protein RAD23; Protein with ubiquitin-like N terminus; subunit of Nuclear Excision Repair Factor 2 (NEF2) with Rad4p that binds damaged DNA; enhances protein deglycosylation activity of Png1p; also involved, with Rad4p, in ubiquitylated protein turnover; Rad4p-Rad23p heterodimer binds to promoters of DNA damage response genes to repress their transcription in the absence of DNA damage
Heat shock protein STI1; Hsp90 cochaperone; regulates spatial organization of amyloid-like proteins in the cytosol, thereby buffering the proteotoxicity caused by amyloid-like proteins; interacts with the Ssa group of the cytosolic Hsp70 chaperones and activates Ssa1p ATPase activity; interacts with Hsp90 chaperones and inhibits their ATPase activity; homolog of mammalian Hop
