STRINGSTRING
UTR2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"UTR2" - Chitin transglycosylase 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

UTR2Chitin transglycosylase; functions in the transfer of chitin to beta(1-6) and beta(1-3) glucans in the cell wall; similar to and functionally redundant with Crh1; glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored protein localized to bud neck; Probable glycosidase that plays a role in cell wall architecture. Required for the transfer of chitin to 1,6-beta- glucan in the cell wall (467 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GAS1
Beta-1,3-glucanosyltransferase, required for cell wall assembly and also has a role in transcriptional silencing; localizes to the cell surface via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; also found at the nuclear periphery; Splits internally a 1,3-beta-glucan molecule and transfers the newly generated reducing end (the donor) to the non- reducing end of another 1,3-beta-glucan molecule (the acceptor) forming a 1,3-beta linkage, resulting in the elongation of 1,3- beta-glucan chains in the cell wall. Involved in cell wall biosynthesis and morphogenesis (559 aa)
     
 
  0.880
FKS1
Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase, functionally redundant with alternate catalytic subunit Gsc2p; binds to regulatory subunit Rho1p; involved in cell wall synthesis and maintenance; localizes to sites of cell wall remodeling; Alternate catalytic subunit of the 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (GS). Synthesizes 1,3-beta-glucan, a major structural component of the yeast cell wall. Involved in cell wall synthesis, maintenance and cell wall remodeling (1876 aa)
     
 
  0.810
CRH1
Chitin transglycosylase; functions in the transfer of chitin to beta(1-6) and beta(1-3) glucans in the cell wall; similar and functionally redundant to Utr2; localizes to sites of polarized growth; expression induced by cell wall stress; Probable glycosidase that plays a role in cell wall architecture. Required for the transfer of chitin to 1,6-beta- glucan in the cell wall (507 aa)
     
 
0.706
ECM33
GPI-anchored protein of unknown function, has a possible role in apical bud growth; GPI-anchoring on the plasma membrane crucial to function; phosphorylated in mitochondria; similar to Sps2p and Pst1p; Required for proper cell wall integrity and for the correct assembly of the mannoprotein outer layer of the cell wall. Important for apical bud growth (429 aa)
     
   
  0.702
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; Cleaves proteins C-terminally to the most C-terminal basic residue. Can process the alpha-mating factor precursor. Required for cell wall integrity (596 aa)
     
   
  0.640
CWP1
Cell wall mannoprotein that localizes to birth scars of daughter cells; linked to a beta-1,3- and beta-1,6-glucan heteropolymer through a phosphodiester bond; required for propionic acid resistance; Component of the cell wall (239 aa)
           
  0.639
CHS3
Chitin synthase III, catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin; required for synthesis of the majority of cell wall chitin, the chitin ring during bud emergence, and spore wall chitosan; Appears to be responsible for the synthesis of the majority of the chitin found in the cell wall periphery. It is involved in the synthesis of the chitin ring that forms in the cell wall just before bud emergence. This ring remains at the base of the bud as the bud grows and ultimately forms part of the bud scar marking the division site on the mother cell. Also catalyzes the syn [...] (1165 aa)

HSP10
Mitochondrial matrix co-chaperonin; inhibits the ATPase activity of Hsp60p, a mitochondrial chaperonin; involved in protein folding and sorting in the mitochondria; 10 kD heat shock protein with similarity to E. coli groES; Eukaryotic CPN10 homolog which is essential for mitochondrial protein biogenesis, together with CPN60. Binds to CPN60 in the presence of Mg-ATP and suppresses the ATPase activity of the latter (106 aa)

EXG1
Major exo-1,3-beta-glucanase of the cell wall, involved in cell wall beta-glucan assembly; exists as three differentially glycosylated isoenzymes; Glucanases possibly play a role in cell expansion during growth, in cell-cell fusion during mating, and in spore release during sporulation. This enzyme hydrolyzes both 1,3-beta- and 1,6- beta-linkages and even has beta-glucosidase activity. It could also function biosynthetically as a transglycosylase (448 aa)

BGL2
Endo-beta-1,3-glucanase, major protein of the cell wall, involved in cell wall maintenance; Glucanases possibly play a role in cell expansion during growth, in cell-cell fusion during mating, and in spore release during sporulation. This enzyme may be involved in beta-glucan degradation and also function biosynthetically as a transglycosylase (313 aa)
