KEG1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KEG1" - Integral membrane protein of the ER 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
KEG1Integral membrane protein of the ER; physically interacts with Kre6p; has a role in the synthesis of beta-1,6-glucan in the cell wall; required for cell viability; Involved in the biosynthesis of (1->6)-beta-D-glucan polymers of the cell wall. Required for viability. Involved in maintaining chromosome stability (200 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Type II integral membrane protein required for beta-1,6 glucan biosynthesis; putative beta-glucan synthase; localizes to the ER, plasma membrane, sites of polarized growth and secretory vesicles; functionally redundant with Skn1p; Involved in the synthesis of (1->6)- and (1->3)-beta-D- glucan polymers of the yeast cell wall in vivo. It is required for full activity of beta-glucan synthase in vitro. May be involved in the maturation and transport of cell wall proteins (CWP) to the cell wall. May act as a transglucosidase and contribute to the construction of a protein-bound glucan-struc [...] (720 aa)
Molecular chaperone involved in protein folding in the ER; mutation causes defects in cell wall synthesis and in lysis of autophagic bodies, suppresses tor2 mutations, and is synthetically lethal with kar2-1 and with rot2 mutations; Required for normal levels of the cell wall 1,6-beta- glucan. Involved in a protein folding machinery chaperoning proteins acting in various physiological processes including cell wall synthesis and lysis of autophagic bodies. Controls actin cytoskeleton polarization to the mother-bud neck and CLB2 protein stability (256 aa)
Protein required for beta-1,6 glucan biosynthesis; mutations result in aberrant morphology and severe growth defects; Required for (1->6)-beta-D-glucan synthesis and normal cell growth (1365 aa)
Protein with similarity to Kre9p, which is involved in cell wall beta 1,6-glucan synthesis; overproduction suppresses growth defects of a kre9 null mutant; required for propionic acid resistance; Involved in cell wall beta(1->6) glucan synthesis (268 aa)
Calnexin; integral membrane ER chaperone involved in folding and quality control of glycoproteins; chaperone activity is inhibited by Mpd1p, with which Cne1p interacts; 24% identical to mammalian calnexin; Ca+ binding not yet shown in yeast; Interacts with newly synthesized glycoproteins in the endoplasmic reticulum. It may act in assisting protein assembly and/or in the retention within the ER of unassembled protein subunits. It seems to play a major role in the quality control apparatus of the ER by the retention of incorrectly folded proteins (502 aa)
Integral membrane protein of the endoplasmic reticulum, required for normal content of cell wall beta-1,6-glucan; Required for normal beta-1,6-glucan synthesis (335 aa)
Glucosidase II catalytic subunit required for normal cell wall synthesis; mutations in rot2 suppress tor2 mutations, and are synthetically lethal with rot1 mutations; Catalytic subunit of glucosidase 2, which cleaves sequentially the 2 innermost alpha-1,3-linked glucose residues from the Glc(2)Man(9)GlcNAc(2) oligosaccharide precursor of immature glycoproteins (954 aa)
Protein involved in sphingolipid biosynthesis; type II membrane protein with similarity to Kre6p; Required for synthesis of the major beta-glucans of the yeast cell wall (771 aa)
Ubiquitin conjugating enzyme, involved in the ER-associated protein degradation pathway; requires Cue1p for recruitment to the ER membrane; proposed to be involved in chromatin assembly; Catalyzes the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to other proteins. Functions in degradation of misfolded or regulated proteins localized in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) lumen or membrane via the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Cognate E2 conjugating enzyme for the DOA10 ubiquitin ligase complex, which is part of the ERAD-C pathway responsible for the rapid degradation of membrane proteins with misfolded [...] (165 aa)
Glycoprotein involved in cell wall beta-glucan assembly; null mutation leads to severe growth defects, aberrant multibudded morphology, and mating defects; Involved in cell wall beta(1->6) glucan synthesis (276 aa)
