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
VAC8Vacuolar protein 8; Phosphorylated and palmitoylated vacuolar membrane protein; interacts with Atg13p, required for the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; interacts with Nvj1p to form nucleus-vacuole junctions (578 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Nucleus-vacuole junction protein 1; Nuclear envelope protein; anchored to the nuclear inner membrane, that interacts with the vacuolar membrane protein Vac8p to promote formation of nucleus-vacuole junctions during piecemeal microautophagy of the nucleus (PMN)
Vacuole-related protein 17; Phosphoprotein involved in vacuole inheritance; degraded in late M phase of the cell cycle; acts as a vacuole-specific receptor for myosin Myo2p; involved in regulation of asymmetric inheritance of aggregated/misfolded proteins and age reset
Autophagy-related protein 13; Regulatory subunit of the Atg1p signaling complex; stimulates Atg1p kinase activity; required for vesicle formation during autophagy and the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; contains a HORMA domain required for autophagy and for recruitment of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex subunit Atg14p to the pre-autophagosomal structure; Belongs to the ATG13 family. Fungi subfamily
Palmitoyltransferase for Vac8p; required for vacuolar membrane fusion; contains an Asp-His-His-Cys-cysteine rich (DHHC-CRD) domain; autoacylates; required for vacuolar integrity under stress conditions; Belongs to the DHHC palmitoyltransferase family. PFA3 subfamily
Myosin-2; Type V myosin motor involved in actin-based transport of cargos; required for the polarized delivery of secretory vesicles, the vacuole, late Golgi elements, peroxisomes, and the mitotic spindle; MYO2 has a paralog, MYO4, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Myosin family
Subunit of the BLOC-1 complex involved in endosomal maturation; interacts with Vps21p-GFP; has potential role in vacuolar function, as suggested by its ability to bind Vac8p; likely member of; Vab2p-GFP-fusion localizes to cytoplasm in punctate pattern
Protein MEH1; Component of the EGO and GSE complexes; EGO is involved in the regulation of microautophagy and GSE is required for proper sorting of amino acid permease Gap1p; loss results in a defect in vacuolar acidification
Autophagy-related protein 11; Adapter protein for pexophagy and the Cvt targeting pathway; directs receptor-bound cargo to the phagophore assembly site (PAS) for packaging into vesicles; required for recruiting other proteins to the PAS; recruits Dnm1p to facilitate fission of mitochondria that are destined for removal by mitophagy; Belongs to the ATG11 family
Membrane-anchored lipid-binding protein LAM6; Sterol transporter that transfers sterols between membranes; may regulate and coordinate formation of contact sites between organelles; localizes to ER-mitochondrial contact sites in a Tom70p- and Tom71p-dependent manner; mitochondrial localization requires GRAM domain; also localizes to ER-vacuole contact sites, in a Vac8p-dependent manner; has GRAM and StART-like (VASt) domains; one of six StART-like domain-containing proteins in yeast; conserved across eukaryotes; Belongs to the YSP2 family
Palmitoyltransferase that acts on transmembrane proteins; including the SNAREs Snc1p, Syn8p, Tlg1p and likely all SNAREs; contains an Asp-His-His-Cys-cysteine rich (DHHC-CRD) domain; may have a role in vacuole fusion
