CIN8 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CIN8" - Kinesin motor protein involved in mitotic spindle assembly and chromosome segregation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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

CIN8Kinesin motor protein involved in mitotic spindle assembly and chromosome segregation; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle. Interacts with spindle microtubules to produce an outwardly directed force acting upon the poles. Following spindle assembly, CIN8 and KIP1 apparently act to oppose a force that draws separated poles back together. This force seems to be mediated by KAR3 (1000 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein kinase involved in the cell cycle checkpoint into anaphase; forms complex with Mad1p and Bub3p crucial to preventing cell cycle progression into anaphase in the presence of spindle damage; CDC28-mediated phosphorylation at Bub1p-T566 is impo /.../for its degradation in anaphase and adaptation of the checkpoint to prolonged mitotic arrest, but not to its kinase activity or chromosome segregation function; associates with centromere DNA via Skp1p; Involved in cell cycle checkpoint enforcement. The formation of a MAD1-BUB1-BUB3 complex seems to be required for the spindle checkpoi [...] (1021 aa)
Component of the evolutionarily conserved kinetochore-associated Ndc80 complex (Ndc80p-Nuf2p-Spc24p-Spc25p); conserved coiled-coil protein involved in chromosome segregation, spindle checkpoint activity, kinetochore assembly and clustering; Acts as a component of the essential kinetochore- associated NDC80 complex, which is involved in chromosome segregation and spindle checkpoint activity (691 aa)
Aurora kinase subunit of the conserved chromosomal passenger complex (CPC; Ipl1p-Sli15p-Bir1p-Nbl1p), involved in regulating kinetochore-microtubule attachments; helps maintain condensed chromosomes during anaphase and early telophase; required for /.../hesion and prevention of multipolar spindle formation; Required for high-fidelity chromosome segregation during the later part of each cell cycle. Acts in opposition to the phosphatase PP1. Has a role in attaching the kinetochores to the microtubules and ensuring that sister kinetochores connect to opposite poles. The promotion of bi-o [...] (367 aa)
Dual-specificity kinase required for spindle pole body (SPB) duplication and spindle checkpoint function; substrates include SPB proteins Spc42p, Spc110p, and Spc98p, mitotic exit network protein Mob1p, and checkpoint protein Mad1p; Involved in the regulation of the onset of mitosis. Involved in a pathway that coordinates cell proliferation and differentiation. Implicated in spindle pole body (SPD) duplication. Dual specificity kinase that can phosphorylate serine, threonine and tyrosine residues. Phosphorylates the SPC29 and SPC110 spindle pole body components (764 aa)
Component of the evolutionarily conserved kinetochore-associated Ndc80 complex (Ndc80p-Nuf2p-Spc24p-Spc25p); involved in chromosome segregation, spindle checkpoint activity and kinetochore clustering; Acts as component of the essential kinetochore- associated NDC80 complex, which is involved in chromosome segregation and spindle checkpoint activity (451 aa)
Component of the spindle-assembly checkpoint complex; delays the onset of anaphase in cells with defects in mitotic spindle assembly; forms a complex with Mad1p; regulates APC/C activity during prometaphase and metaphase of meiosis I; Central component of the spindle assembly checkpoint which is a feedback control that prevents cells with incompletely assembled spindles from leaving mitosis. Thought to be recruited to unattached kinetochores by MAD1. During checkpoint activity, MAD2 is relayed from the MAD1-MAD2 complex to the mitotic checkpoint complex (MCC). MCC and presumably the MA [...] (196 aa)
Mitotic spindle midzone localized microtubule-associated protein (MAP) family member; required for spindle elongation and stabilization; undergoes cell cycle-regulated degradation by anaphase promoting complex; potential Cdc28p substrate; Required for anaphase spindle elongation (885 aa)
Microtubule-associated protein (MAP) of the XMAP215/Dis1 family; regulates microtubule dynamics during spindle orientation and metaphase chromosome alignment; interacts with spindle pole body component Spc72p; May play a role in the attachment, organization, and/or dynamics of microtubule ends at the spindle pole body (888 aa)
Kinetochore-associated protein required for normal segregation of chromosomes in meiosis and mitosis; component of the FEAR regulatory network, which promotes Cdc14p release from the nucleolus during anaphase; potential Cdc28p substrate; Has a role in spindle assembly and stability. Required to ensure a timely exit form mitosis. Essential to maintain pre- anaphase spindle polarity. Associates to the plus ends of the microtubules at the kinetochore and spindle midzone. A component of the FEAR (CDC14 Early Anaphase Release) network which promotes CDC14 release from the nucleolus during e [...] (821 aa)
Cytoplasmic heavy chain dynein, microtubule motor protein, required for anaphase spindle elongation; involved in spindle assembly, chromosome movement, and spindle orientation during cell division, targeted to microtubule tips by Pac1p; Cytoplasmic dynein acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. Dynein has ATPase activity; the force-producing power stroke is thought to occur on release of ADP. Required to maintain uniform nuclear distribution in hyphae. May play an important role in the proper orientation of the mitotic sp [...] (4092 aa)
