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

Gene Fusion
YAT2Carnitine O-acetyltransferase YAT2; Carnitine acetyltransferase; has similarity to Yat1p, which is a carnitine acetyltransferase associated with the mitochondrial outer membrane (923 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Carnitine O-acetyltransferase, mitochondrial; Carnitine acetyl-CoA transferase; present in both mitochondria and peroxisomes; transfers activated acetyl groups to carnitine to form acetylcarnitine which can be shuttled across membranes
Isocitrate lyase; catalyzes the formation of succinate and glyoxylate from isocitrate, a key reaction of the glyoxylate cycle; expression of ICL1 is induced by growth on ethanol and repressed by growth on glucose
Outer mitochondrial carnitine acetyltransferase; minor ethanol-inducible enzyme involved in transport of activated acyl groups from the cytoplasm into the mitochondrial matrix; phosphorylated
Solute carrier family 25 (mitochondrial carnitine/acylcarnitine transporter), member 20/29; Mitochondrial inner membrane carnitine transporter; required for carnitine-dependent transport of acetyl-CoA from peroxisomes to mitochondria during fatty acid beta-oxidation; human homolog SLC25A20 complements yeast null mutant
Fatty-acyl coenzyme A oxidase; involved in the fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway; localized to the peroxisomal matrix
Acetyl-coA synthetase isoform; along with Acs2p, acetyl-coA synthetase isoform is the nuclear source of acetyl-coA for histone acetylation; expressed during growth on nonfermentable carbon sources and under aerobic conditions; Belongs to the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family
Citrate synthase, peroxisomal isozyme involved in glyoxylate cycle; catalyzes condensation of acetyl coenzyme A and oxaloacetate to form citrate; expression is controlled by Rtg1p and Rtg2p transcription factors; SCF-Ucc1 regulates level of Cit2p to maintain citrate homeostasis; oxaloacetate-dependent positive feedback loop inhibits Cit2p ubiquitination; CIT2 has a paralog, CIT1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Peroxisomal hydratase-dehydrogenase-epimerase; 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase and enoyl-CoA hydratase; multifunctional enzyme of the peroxisomal fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway; mutation is functionally complemented by human HSD17B4
Malate synthase, enzyme of the glyoxylate cycle; involved in utilization of non-fermentable carbon sources; expression is subject to carbon catabolite repression; localizes in peroxisomes during growth on oleic acid, otherwise cytosolic; can accept butyryl-CoA as acyl-CoA donor in addition to traditional substrate acetyl-CoA
Solute carrier family 25 (mitochondrial citrate transporter), member 1; Mitochondrial succinate-fumarate transporter; transports succinate into and fumarate out of the mitochondrion; required for ethanol and acetate utilization
