STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
TOS8Homeobox protein TOS8; Homeodomain-containing protein and putative transcription factor; found associated with chromatin; target of SBF transcription factor; induced during meiosis and under cell-damaging conditions; TOS8 has a paralog, CUP9, that arose from the whole genome duplication (276 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
HD domain-containing protein YGL101W; Protein of unknown function; non-essential gene; interacts with the DNA helicase Hpr5p; YGL101W has a paralog, YBR242W, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Putative uncharacterized protein YHR145C; Dubious open reading frame; unlikely to encode a functional protein, based on available experimental and comparative sequence data
Uncharacterized protein YHR177W; Putative transcription factor containing a WOPR domain; binds DNA in vitro; similar to C. albicans Wor1p transcription factor that regulates white-opaque switching; overexpression causes a cell cycle delay or arrest
Putative uncharacterized protein YHR217C; Dubious open reading frame; unlikely to encode a functional protein, based on available experimental and comparative sequence data; located in the telomeric region TEL08R
Putative uncharacterized protein yhr219w; Putative protein of unknown function with similarity to helicases; located in the telomere region on the right arm of chromosome VIII
Transcriptional repressor; binds promoter sequences of cyclin genes, CYS3, and SMF2; not expressed during log phase of growth, but induced by stress or starvation during mitosis, and late in meiosis; represses 15% of all yeast genes as cells transition to quiescence; important for maintaining G1 arrest and for longevity of quiescent cells; member of Swi4p/Mbp1p family; phosphorylated by Cdc28p; relative distribution to nucleus increases upon DNA replication stress
Homeobox protein YHP1; Homeobox transcriptional repressor; binds Mcm1p and early cell cycle box (ECB) elements of cell cycle regulated genes, thereby restricting ECB-mediated transcription to the M/G1 interval; YHP1 has a paralog, YOX1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Respiration factor 2; Zinc-finger protein; involved in transcriptional control of both nuclear and mitochondrial genes, many of which specify products required for glycerol-based growth, respiration, and other functions; RSF2 has a paralog, TDA9, that arose from the whole genome duplication; relocalizes from nucleus to cytoplasm upon DNA replication stress
Deoxycytidine monophosphate (dCMP) deaminase; involved in dUMP and dTMP biosynthesis; expression is NOT cell cycle regulated
Uncharacterized isomerase YHR210C; Putative aldose 1-epimerase superfamily protein; non-essential gene; highly expressed under anaeorbic conditions; Belongs to the aldose epimerase family
