PHO4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"PHO4" - Basic helix-loop-helix in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Gene Fusion
PHO4Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor of the myc-family; activates transcription cooperatively with Pho2p in response to phosphate limitation; binding to ’CACGTG’ motif is regulated by chromatin restriction, competitive binding of Cbf1p to the same DNA binding motif and cooperation with Pho2p; function is regulated by phosphorylation at multiple sites and by phosphate availability; Transcriptional activator that regulates the expression of repressible phosphatase under phosphate starvation conditions. Binds to the upstream activating sequence (UAS) of several phosphatase e [...] (312 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Cyclin, interacts with cyclin-dependent kinase Pho85p; regulates the response to nutrient levels and environmental conditions, including the response to phosphate limitation and stress-dependent calcium signaling; Cyclin partner of the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) PHO85. Negatively regulates the expression of phosphate- starvation-responsive genes under phosphate-rich conditions. The PHO80-PHO85 cyclin-CDK holoenzyme phosphorylates and inactivates the transcription factor PHO4, by preventing its association with the transcription factor PHO2 and the nuclear import receptor PSE1, and b [...] (293 aa)
Cyclin-dependent kinase, with ten cyclin partners; involved in regulating the cellular response to nutrient levels and environmental conditions and progression through the cell cycle; Cyclin-dependent protein kinase (CDK) catalytic subunit that regulates multiple cell cycle and metabolic processes in response to nutrient availability. Associates with different cyclins, that control kinase activity, substrate specificity and subcellular location of the kinase. Favorable growth conditions always result in activated cyclin-CDK complexes. Regulates metabolic processes when associated with [...] (305 aa)
Homeobox transcription factor; regulatory targets include genes involved in phosphate metabolism; binds cooperatively with Pho4p to the PHO5 promoter; phosphorylation of Pho2p facilitates interaction with Pho4p; Regulator in phosphate metabolism and acts as a derepressor of another central regulator PHO5. Binds to the upstream activator sequence (UAS) of PHO5. It also binds to the TRP4, HIS4, and CYC1 promoters (559 aa)
Cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor, regulates Pho80p-Pho85p and Pcl7p-Pho85p cyclin-CDK complexes in response to phosphate levels; inhibitory activity for Pho80p-Pho85p requires myo-D-inositol heptakisphosphate (IP7) generated by Vip1p; Inhibits the kinase activity of the cyclin-CDKs PHO80- PHO85 and PCL7-PHO85 under low-phosphate conditions (1178 aa)
High-affinity inorganic phosphate (Pi) transporter and low-affinity manganese transporter; regulated by Pho4p and Spt7p; mutation confers resistance to arsenate; exit from the ER during maturation requires Pho86p; High-affinity transporter for external inorganic phosphate. Is not an essential protein, since a constitutive, low affinity pI transporter exists in yeast (587 aa)
Repressible acid phosphatase (1 of 3) that also mediates extracellular nucleotide-derived phosphate hydrolysis; secretory pathway derived cell surface glycoprotein; induced by phosphate starvation and coordinately regulated by PHO4 and PHO2; Partially mediates extracellular nucleotide derived phosphate hydrolysis along with NPP1 and NPP2 (467 aa)
Karyopherin involved in nuclear import and export of proteins, including import of replication protein A and export of Swi6p, Far1p, and Pho4p; required for re-export of mature tRNAs after their retrograde import from the cytoplasm (1224 aa)
Karyopherin/importin that interacts with the nuclear pore complex; acts as the nuclear import receptor for specific proteins, including Pdr1p, Yap1p, Ste12p, and Aft1p; Functions in nuclear protein import as nuclear transport receptor. Serves as receptor for classical and arginine/glycine- rich nuclear localization signals (cNLS and rg-NLS) in cargo substrates (PubMed-15367670). Its predominant cargo substrate seems to be ribosomal proteins and ribosome biogenesis trans- and cis-acting factors (PubMed-9182759, PubMed-9321403, PubMed-15367670). Required for nuclear transport of YAP1, NO [...] (1089 aa)
Protein with similarity to cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors; downregulates low-affinity phosphate transport during phosphate limitation; overproduction suppresses a plc1 null mutation; GFP-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm; Putative cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor necessary and sufficient for PHO pathway-dependent down-regulation of low-affinity phosphate transport (148 aa)
TATA-binding protein, general transcription factor that interacts with other factors to form the preinitiation complex at promoters, essential for viability; General transcription factor that functions at the core of the DNA-binding general transcription factor complex TFIID. Binding of TFIID to a promoter (with or without TATA element) is the initial step in preinitiation complex (PIC) formation. TFIID plays a key role in the regulation of gene expression by RNA polymerase II through different activities such as transcription activator interaction, core promoter recognition and select [...] (240 aa)
