STRINGSTRING
TUB2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"TUB2" - Beta-tubulin 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

TUB2Beta-tubulin; associates with alpha-tubulin (Tub1p and Tub3p) to form tubulin dimer, which polymerizes to form microtubules; Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (457 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
TUB1
Alpha-tubulin; associates with beta-tubulin (Tub2p) to form tubulin dimer, which polymerizes to form microtubules; Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (447 aa)
     
0.999
TUB3
Alpha-tubulin; associates with beta-tubulin (Tub2p) to form tubulin dimer, which polymerizes to form microtubules; expressed at lower level than Tub1p; Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (445 aa)
     
0.997
RBL2
Protein involved in microtubule morphogenesis, required for protection from excess free beta-tubulin; proposed to be involved the folding of beta-tubulin; similar to mouse beta-tubulin cofactor A; Tubulin-folding protein; involved in the early step of the tubulin folding pathway (106 aa)
       
 
  0.992
CIN1
Tubulin folding factor D involved in beta-tubulin (Tub2p) folding; isolated as mutant with increased chromosome loss and sensitivity to benomyl; Required for microtubule stability. Interacts with CIN4 (1014 aa)
       
 
  0.989
CIN8
Kinesin 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)
     
 
  0.985
DYN1
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)
       
  0.985
BIM1
Microtubule-binding protein that together with Kar9p makes up the cortical microtubule capture site and delays the exit from mitosis when the spindle is oriented abnormally; Binds microtubules (344 aa)
     
 
  0.978
KAR3
Minus-end-directed microtubule motor; functions in mitosis and meiosis, localizes to the spindle pole body and localization is dependent on functional Cik1p, required for nuclear fusion during mating; potential Cdc28p substrate; Essential for yeast nuclear fusion during mating. KAR3 is a bifunctional protein having a kinesin-like motor domain joined to a distinct microtubule binding domain. It may mediate microtubule sliding during nuclear fusion and possibly mitosis. May interact with spindle microtubules to produce an inwardly directed force acting upon the poles. KAR3 function antag [...] (729 aa)
     
 
  0.974
STU2
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)
     
 
  0.973
KIP2
Kinesin-related motor protein involved in mitotic spindle positioning, stabilizes microtubules by targeting Bik1p to the plus end; Kip2p levels are controlled during the cell cycle; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle (706 aa)
       
 
  0.966
