STRINGSTRING
MSH4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MSH4" - Protein involved in meiotic recombination, required for normal levels of crossing over, colocalizes with Zip2p to discrete foci on meiotic chromosomes, has homology to bacterial MutS protein 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

Predicted Functional Partners:
MLH1
Protein required for mismatch repair in mitosis and meiosis as well as crossing over during meiosis; forms a complex with Pms1p and Msh2p-Msh3p during mismatch repair; human homolog is associated with hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer; Required for DNA mismatch repair (MMR), correcting base- base mismatches and insertion-deletion loops (IDLs) resulting from DNA replication, DNA damage or from recombination events between non-identical sequences during meiosis. Component of different MutL heterodimers that form a ternary complex with the MutS heterodimers, which initially recognize [...] (769 aa)

MLH3
Protein involved in DNA mismatch repair and crossing-over during meiotic recombination; forms a complex with Mlh1p; mammalian homolog is implicated mammalian microsatellite instability; Involved in DNA mismatch repair (MMR), correcting insertion-deletion loops (IDLs) resulting from DNA replication, DNA damage or from recombination events between non-identical sequences during meiosis. Component of the MutLbeta heterodimer, which probably forms a ternary complex with the MutSbeta heterodimer that initially recognizes the DNA mismatches. This complex is thought to be responsible for dire [...] (715 aa)

MLH2
Protein involved in the mismatch repair of certain frameshift intermediates and involved in meiotic recombination; forms a complex with Mlh1p; Involved in DNA mismatch repair (MMR), correcting insertion-deletion loops (IDLs) resulting from DNA replication, DNA damage or from recombination events between non-identical sequences during meiosis. Component of a MutL heterodimer with MLH1, which probably forms a ternary complex with the MutSbeta heterodimer that initially recognizes the DNA mismatches. This complex is thought to be responsible for directing the downsteam MMR events, includi [...] (695 aa)

PMS1
ATP-binding protein required for mismatch repair in mitosis and meiosis; functions as a heterodimer with Mlh1p, binds double- and single-stranded DNA via its N-terminal domain, similar to E. coli MutL; Required for DNA mismatch repair (MMR), correcting base- base mismatches and insertion-deletion loops (IDLs) resulting from DNA replication, DNA damage or from recombination events between non-identical sequences during meiosis. Component of the MutLalpha heterodimer that forms a ternary complex with the MutS heterodimers, which initially recognize the DNA mismatches. This complex is tho [...] (873 aa)

SPO11
Meiosis-specific protein that initiates meiotic recombination by catalyzing the formation of double-strand breaks in DNA via a transesterification reaction; required for homologous chromosome pairing and synaptonemal complex formation; Required for meiotic recombination. Mediates DNA cleavage that forms the double-strand breaks (DSB) that initiate meiotic recombination. The action of SPO11 is important in setting off a regulatory chain of events encompassing 5’ to 3’ resection. When there are no SPO11-DSBs, resection of a site specific VDE-DSB takes place but it is faster than in wild- [...] (398 aa)

HFM1
Meiosis specific DNA helicase involved in the conversion of double-stranded breaks to later recombination intermediates and in crossover control; catalyzes the unwinding of Holliday junctions; has ssDNA and dsDNA stimulated ATPase activity; DNA-dependent ATPase. Required in the control of double strand breaks transition and crossover during meiosis. Unwinds DNA in the 3’ TO 5’ direction. Prefers single-stranded DNA (1187 aa)

EXO1
5’-3’ exonuclease and flap-endonuclease involved in recombination, double-strand break repair and DNA mismatch repair; member of the Rad2p nuclease family, with conserved N and I nuclease domains; 5’->3’ double-stranded DNA exonuclease involved in mismatch repair and eventually also in mitotic recombination between direct repeats. Also has a minor role in the correction of large DNA mismatches that occur in the heteroduplex DNA during meiotic recombination at the HIS4 locus (702 aa)

POL30
Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), functions as the sliding clamp for DNA polymerase delta; may function as a docking site for other proteins required for mitotic and meiotic chromosomal DNA replication and for DNA repair; This protein is an auxiliary protein of DNA polymerase delta and is involved in the control of eukaryotic DNA replication by increasing the polymerase’s processibility during elongation of the leading strand. Involved in DNA repair (258 aa)

PCH2
Nucleolar component of the pachytene checkpoint, which prevents chromosome segregation when recombination and chromosome synapsis are defective; also represses meiotic interhomolog recombination in the rDNA; Required for the pachytene checkpoint, the meiotic checkpoint that prevents chromosome segregation when defects in recombination and synaptonemal complex formation occurred.

YEN1
Holliday junction resolvase; localization is cell-cycle dependent and regulated by Cdc28p phosphorylation; homolog of human GEN1 and has similarity to S. cerevisiae endonuclease Rth1p; Endonuclease which resolves Holliday junctions by the introduction of symmetrically related cuts across the junction point, to produce nicked duplex products in which the nicks can be readily ligated. Four-way DNA intermediates, also known as Holliday junctions, are formed during homologous recombination and DNA repair, and their resolution is necessary for proper chromosome segregation.
