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

Gene Fusion
MLC1Essential light chain for Myo1p; light chain for Myo2p; stabilizes Myo2p by binding to the neck region; interacts with Myo1p, Iqg1p, and Myo2p to coordinate formation and contraction of the actomyosin ring with targeted membrane deposition (149 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Myosin-1; Type II myosin heavy chain; required for wild-type cytokinesis and cell separation; localizes to the actomyosin ring; binds to myosin light chains Mlc1p and Mlc2p through its IQ1 and IQ2 motifs respectively
Myosin-2; Type V myosin motor involved in actin-based transport of cargos; required for the polarized delivery of secretory vesicles, the vacuole, late Golgi elements, peroxisomes, and the mitotic spindle; MYO2 has a paralog, MYO4, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Myosin family
Ras GTPase-activating-like protein IQG1; Essential protein required for determination of budding pattern; promotes localization of axial markers Bud4p and Cdc12p and functionally interacts with Sec3p, localizes to the contractile ring during anaphase, member of the IQGAP family; relocalizes from bud neck to cytoplasm upon DNA replication stress
Regulatory light chain for the type II myosin Myo1p; binds to an IQ motif of Myo1p, localization to the bud neck depends on Myo1p; involved in the disassembly of the Myo1p ring
Myosin-4; Type V myosin motor involved in actin-based transport of cargos; required for mRNA transport, including ASH1 mRNA, and facilitating the growth and movement of ER tubules into the growing bud along with She3p; MYO4 has a paralog, MYO2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Calcium-channel protein CCH1; Voltage-gated high-affinity calcium channel; involved in calcium influx in response to some environmental stresses as well as exposure to mating pheromones; interacts and partially co-localizes with Mid1p; however, evidence suggests CCH1 is not required for Mid1p function
Cytokinesis protein 2; Protein that regulates actin cytoskeleton organization; required for cytokinesis, actin cable organization, and secretory vesicle trafficking; localized to bud neck; phosphorylated by Dbf2p; regulates actomyosin ring dynamics and septin localization; contains an SH3 domain; N terminus controls cell size and levels of actin cables, while C terminus controls actin cable organization via direct regulation of the formin Bnr1p
SWI5-dependent HO expression protein 3; Protein adaptor between Myo4p and the She2p-mRNA complex; part of the mRNA localization machinery that restricts accumulation of certain proteins to the bud; also required for cortical ER inheritance
Actin, other eukaryote; Actin; structural protein involved in cell polarization, endocytosis, and other cytoskeletal functions
Serine/threonine-protein kinase STE20; Cdc42p-activated signal transducing kinase; involved in pheromone response, pseudohyphal/invasive growth, vacuole inheritance, down-regulation of sterol uptake; GBB motif binds Ste4p; member of the PAK (p21-activated kinase) family
