STRINGSTRING
FLO8 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"FLO8" - Transcription factor required for flocculation, diploid filamentous growth, and haploid invasive growth 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

FLO8Transcription factor required for flocculation, diploid filamentous growth, and haploid invasive growth; genome reference strain S288C and most laboratory strains have a mutation in this gene; Required for diploid filamentous growth, haploid invasive growth and flocculation. Putative transcriptional activator of FLO1 (799 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MSS11
Transcription factor involved in regulation of invasive growth and starch degradation; controls the activation of MUC1 and STA2 in response to nutritional signals; Transcription factor that regulates pseudohyphal differentiation, invasive growth, floculation, adhesion and starch metabolism in response to nutrient availability (758 aa)
       
 
  0.936
FLO11
GPI-anchored cell surface glycoprotein (flocculin); required for pseudohyphal formation, invasive growth, flocculation, and biofilms; transcriptionally regulated by the MAPK pathway (via Ste12p and Tec1p) and the cAMP pathway (via Flo8p); required f /.../ formation of fibrous interconnections between cells in a colony of a wild S. cerevisiae strain; Cell wall protein that participates in adhesive cell- cell interactions during yeast flocculation, a reversible, asexual and Ca(2+)-dependent process in which cells adhere to form aggregates (flocs) consisting of thousands of cells. Also in [...] (1367 aa)
       
 
  0.916
SFL1
Transcriptional repressor and activator; involved in repression of flocculation-related genes, and activation of stress responsive genes; negatively regulated by cAMP-dependent protein kinase A subunit Tpk2p; Involved in cell surface assembly and regulation of the gene related to flocculation (asexual cell aggregation). Mutations in SFL1 causes constitutive cell aggregation (766 aa)
       
 
  0.850
TEC1
Transcription factor targeting filamentation genes and Ty1 expression; Ste12p activation of most filamentation gene promoters depends on Tec1p and Tec1p transcriptional activity is dependent on its association with Ste12p; binds to TCS elements upst /.../f filamentation genes, which are regulated by Tec1p/Ste12p/Dig1p complex; competes with Dig2p for binding to Ste12p/Dig1p; positive regulator of chronological life span; TEA/ATTS DNA-binding domain family member; TEC1 is involved in the activation of TY1 and TY1- mediated gene expression. It is not involved in mating or sporulation processes (486 aa)
       
 
  0.833
TPK2
cAMP-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit; promotes vegetative growth in response to nutrients via the Ras-cAMP signaling pathway; partially redundant with Tpk1p and Tpk3p; localizes to P-bodies during stationary phase (380 aa)
       
 
  0.828
FLO1
Lectin-like protein involved in flocculation, cell wall protein that binds to mannose chains on the surface of other cells, confers floc-forming ability that is chymotrypsin sensitive and heat resistant; similar to Flo5p; Cell wall protein that participates directly in adhesive cell-cell interactions during yeast flocculation, a reversible, asexual and Ca(2+)-dependent process in which cells adhere to form aggregates (flocs) consisting of thousands of cells. The lectin- like protein sticks out of the cell wall of flocculent cells and selectively binds mannose residues in the cell walls [...] (1537 aa)
           
  0.821
MSN1
Transcriptional activator involved in regulation of invertase and glucoamylase expression, invasive growth and pseudohyphal differentiation, iron uptake, chromium accumulation, and response to osmotic stress; localizes to the nucleus; May function as a transcriptional activator. Increased dosage of MSN1 restores invertase expression in yeast mutants defective in the SNF1 protein kinase, and msn1 disruption reduced derepression of invertase in the wild-type. May affect SUC2 expression. Expression of MSN1 enhances growth in iron-limiting conditions (382 aa)
       
 
  0.812
FLO5
Lectin-like cell wall protein (flocculin) involved in flocculation, binds to mannose chains on the surface of other cells, confers floc-forming ability that is chymotrypsin resistant but heat labile; similar to Flo1p; Cell wall protein that participates directly in adhesive cell-cell interactions during yeast flocculation, a reversible, asexual and Ca(2+)-dependent process in which cells adhere to form aggregates (flocs) consisting of thousands of cells. The lectin- like protein sticks out of the cell wall of flocculent cells and selectively binds mannose residues in the cell walls of [...] (1075 aa)
           
  0.800
STE12
Transcription factor that is activated by a MAPK signaling cascade; activates genes involved in mating or pseudohyphal/invasive growth pathways; cooperates with Tec1p transcription factor to regulate genes specific for invasive growth; Binds to the DNA sequence mediating pheromone induction (called the pheromone response element = PRE) which is found in the upstream control region of several a-, alpha- and haploid- specific genes. Involved in mating of haploids and in pseudohyphae formation in diploids (688 aa)
       
 
  0.790
EFG1
Essential protein required for maturation of 18S rRNA; null mutant is sensitive to hydroxyurea and is delayed in recovering from alpha-factor arrest; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the nucleolus; Involved in rRNA processing. Required growth at elevated temperatures, resistance to hydroxyurea and for cell cycle progression (233 aa)
