STRINGSTRING
SEC4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SEC4" - Rab family GTPase essential for vesicle-mediated exocytic secretion and autophagy 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

SEC4Rab family GTPase essential for vesicle-mediated exocytic secretion and autophagy; associates with the exocyst component Sec15p and may regulate polarized delivery of transport vesicles to the exocyst at the plasma membrane; Involved in exocytosis. Maybe by regulating the binding and fusion of secretory vesicles with the cell surface. The GTP- bound form of SEC4 may interact with an effector, thereby stimulating its activity and leading to exocytotic fusion. SEC4 may be an upstream activator of the 19.5S SEC8/SEC15 particle. SEC4 probably interacts directly with SEC8; it could serve as [...] (215 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SEC2
Guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor for the small G-protein Sec4p; essential for post-Golgi vesicle transport and for autophagy; associates with the exocyst, via exocyst subunit Sec15p, on secretory vesicles; Guanine nucleotide exchange factor for SEC4, catalyzing the dissociation of GDP from SEC4 and also potently promoting binding of GTP. Activation of SEC4 by SEC2 is needed for the directed transport of vesicles to sites of exocytosis. Binds the Rab GTPase YPT32, but does not have exhange activity on YPT32 (759 aa)
       
 
  0.999
DSS4
Guanine nucleotide dissociation stimulator for Sec4p, functions in the post-Golgi secretory pathway; binds zinc, found both on membranes and in the cytosol; Guanine-nucleotide-releasing protein that acts on SEC4. Might play a general role in vesicular transport (143 aa)
     
 
  0.999
GDI1
GDP dissociation inhibitor, regulates vesicle traffic in secretory pathways by regulating the dissociation of GDP from the Sec4/Ypt/rab family of GTP binding proteins; Regulates the GDP/GTP exchange reaction of SEC4 by inhibiting the dissociation of GDP from it, and the subsequent binding of GTP to SEC4. Plays an essential role in the yeast secretory pathway (451 aa)
     
 
  0.997
YPT1
Rab family GTPase, involved in the ER-to-Golgi step of the secretory pathway; complex formation with the Rab escort protein Mrs6p is required for prenylation of Ypt1p by protein geranylgeranyltransferase type II (Bet2p-Bet4p); The small GTPases Rab are key regulators of intracellular membrane trafficking, from the formation of transport vesicles to their fusion with membranes. Rabs cycle between an inactive GDP-bound form and an active GTP-bound form that is able to recruit to membranes different set of downstream effectors directly responsible for vesicle formation, movement, tetherin [...] (206 aa)
   
 
0.991
SEC15
Essential 113kDa subunit of the exocyst complex (Sec3p, Sec5p, Sec6p, Sec8p, Sec10p, Sec15p, Exo70p, and Exo84p), which mediates polarized targeting of vesicles to active sites of exocytosis; Sec15p associates with Sec4p and vesicles; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (910 aa)
       
 
  0.989
MRS6
Rab escort protein, forms a complex with the Ras-like small GTPase Ypt1p that is required for the prenylation of Ypt1p by protein geranylgeranyltransferase type II (Bet2p-Bet4p); sequence similarity to mammalian choroideraemia gene; Substrate-binding subunit (component A) of the Rab geranylgeranyltransferase (GGTase) complex. Binds unprenylated Rab proteins and presents the substrate peptide to the catalytic component B. The component A is thought to be regenerated by transferring its prenylated Rab back to the donor membrane (603 aa)
     
 
  0.978
SEC8
Essential 121kDa subunit of the exocyst complex (Sec3p, Sec5p, Sec6p, Sec8p, Sec10p, Sec15p, Exo70p, and Exo84p), which has the essential function of mediating polarized targeting of secretory vesicles to active sites of exocytosis; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (1065 aa)
       
 
  0.978
SEC9
t-SNARE protein important for fusion of secretory vesicles with the plasma membrane; similar to but not functionally redundant with Spo20p; SNAP-25 homolog; Component of a SNARE complex that may be the effector of SEC4 function in exocytosis (651 aa)
       
 
  0.974
GYP5
GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for yeast Rab family members; involved in ER to Golgi trafficking; exhibits GAP activity toward Ypt1p that is stimulated by Gyl1p, also acts on Sec4p; interacts with Gyl1p, Rvs161p and Rvs167p; involved in recruiting /.../p to the bud tip during polarized growth; GTPase-activating protein which accelerates the GTP hydrolysis rate of YPT1 and SEC4. Involved in ER to Golgi trafficking and polarized exocytosis (894 aa)

SEC3
Subunit of the exocyst complex (Sec3p, Sec5p, Sec6p, Sec8p, Sec10p, Sec15p, Exo70p, Exo84p) which mediates targeting of post-Golgi vesicles to sites of active exocytosis; Sec3p specifically is a spatial landmark for secretion; Component of the exocyst complex involved in the docking of exocytic vesicles with fusion sites on the plasma membrane (1336 aa)
