SAE2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SAE2" - Endonuclease that processes hairpin DNA structures with the MRX complex 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

SAE2Endonuclease that processes hairpin DNA structures with the MRX complex; involved in meiotic and mitotic double-strand break repair; phosphorylated in response to DNA damage and required for normal resistance to DNA-damaging agents; Endonuclease that cooperates with the MRX complex in processing meiotic and mitotic double-strand breaks by allowing the endonucleolytic removal of SPO11 from the break sites and ensuring both resection and intrachromosomal association of the broken ends. Required for proper recovery from checkpoint-mediated cell cycle arrest after DNA damage. MRX complex a [...] (345 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Subunit of a complex with Rad50p and Xrs2p (MRX complex) that functions in repair of DNA double-strand breaks and in telomere stability, exhibits nuclease activity that appears to be required for MRX function; widely conserved; Involved in DNA double-strand break repair (DSBR). Possesses single-strand endonuclease activity and double-strand- specific 3’-5’ exonuclease activity. Also involved in meiotic DSB processing (692 aa)
Subunit of MRX complex, with Mre11p and Xrs2p, involved in processing double-strand DNA breaks in vegetative cells, initiation of meiotic DSBs, telomere maintenance, and nonhomologous end joining; Involved in DNA double-strand break repair (DSBR). The rad50/mre11 complex possesses single-strand endonuclease activity and ATP-dependent double-strand-specific exonuclease activity. Rad50 provides ATP-dependent control of mre11 by unwinding and/or repositioning DNA ends into the mre11 active site (1312 aa)
Meiosis-specific protein that initiates meiotic recombination by catalyzing the formation of double-strand breaks in DNA via a transesterification reaction; required for homologous chromosome pairing and synaptonemal complex formation; Required for meiotic recombination. Mediates DNA cleavage that forms the double-strand breaks (DSB) that initiate meiotic recombination. The action of SPO11 is important in setting off a regulatory chain of events encompassing 5’ to 3’ resection. When there are no SPO11-DSBs, resection of a site specific VDE-DSB takes place but it is faster than in wild- [...] (398 aa)
Protein required for DNA repair; component of the Mre11 complex, which is involved in double strand breaks, meiotic recombination, telomere maintenance, and checkpoint signaling; During meiosis is involved in homologous recombination and during vegetative growth it is necessary for DNA repair. It probably regulates the 5’-3’ exonuclease degradation of double strand breaks either at the initiation stage or a later stage (854 aa)
Nucleolar DNA helicase of the RecQ family; involved in genome integrity maintenance; regulates chromosome synapsis and meiotic joint molecule/crossover formation; potential role as repressor of a subset of rapamycin responsive genes; rapidly lost in /.../nse to rapamycin in Rrd1p-dependent manner; similar to human BLM and WRN proteins implicated in Bloom and Werner syndromes; ATP-dependent DNA helicase able to unwind duplex DNA or DNA- RNA heteroduplex (PubMed-9545297). Displacement of the DNA strand occurs in the 3’ to 5’ direction with respect to the single-stranded DNA flanking the [...] (1447 aa)
Protein component of the synaptonemal complex axial elements, involved in chromosome segregation during the first meiotic division; critical for coupling checkpoint signaling to SC formation; interacts with Hop1p, Mec3p and Ddc1p; Probable constituent of the synaptonemal complex during meiosis. May interact with HOP1. Required for meiosis I chromosome segregation (827 aa)
Protein kinase primarily involved in telomere length regulation; contributes to cell cycle checkpoint control in response to DNA damage; functionally redundant with Mec1p; homolog of human ataxia telangiectasia (ATM) gene; Serine/threonine protein kinase which activates checkpoint signaling upon genotoxic stresses such as ionizing radiation (IR), ultraviolet light (UV), or DNA replication stalling, thereby acting as a DNA damage sensor. Recognizes the substrate consensus sequence [ST]-Q. Recruited by the MRX-complex to sites of DNA lesions immediately after damage to initiate non- homo [...] (2787 aa)
5’-3’ exonuclease and flap-endonuclease involved in recombination, double-strand break repair and DNA mismatch repair; member of the Rad2p nuclease family, with conserved N and I nuclease domains; 5’->3’ double-stranded DNA exonuclease involved in mismatch repair and eventually also in mitotic recombination between direct repeats. Also has a minor role in the correction of large DNA mismatches that occur in the heteroduplex DNA during meiotic recombination at the HIS4 locus (702 aa)
Subunit of the structure-specific Mms4p-Mus81p endonuclease that cleaves branched DNA; involved in recombination, DNA repair, and joint molecule formation/resolution during meiotic recombination; Interacts with MUS81 to form a DNA structure-specific endonuclease with substrate preference for branched DNA structures with a 5’-end at the branch nick. Typical substrates include 3’- flap structures, D-loops, replication forks with regressed leading strands and nicked Holliday junctions. Cleavage probably occurs approximately half a helical turn upstream of the free 5’-end in these structur [...] (691 aa)
Protein required for recombination and meiotic nuclear division; forms a complex with Hop2p, which is involved in chromosome pairing and repair of meiotic double-strand breaks; Required for proper homologous chromosome pairing and efficient cross-over and intragenic recombination during meiosis. Stimulates DMC1-dependent homologous strand assimilation, which is required for the resolution of meiotic double-strand breaks (219 aa)
