STRINGSTRING
KIP3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KIP3" - Kinesin-related motor protein involved in mitotic spindle positioning in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

KIP3Kinesin-related motor protein involved in mitotic spindle positioning (805 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
DYN1
Cytoplasmic heavy chain dynein, microtubule motor protein, required for anaphase spindle elongation; involved in spindle assembly, chromosome movement, and spindle orientation during cell division, targeted to microtubule tips by Pac1p; Cytoplasmic dynein acts as a motor for the intracellular retrograde motility of vesicles and organelles along microtubules. Dynein has ATPase activity; the force-producing power stroke is thought to occur on release of ADP. Required to maintain uniform nuclear distribution in hyphae. May play an important role in the proper orientation of the mitotic sp [...] (4092 aa)
       
 
  0.984
TUB1
Alpha-tubulin; associates with beta-tubulin (Tub2p) to form tubulin dimer, which polymerizes to form microtubules; Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (447 aa)
     
 
  0.977
KIP2
Kinesin-related motor protein involved in mitotic spindle positioning, stabilizes microtubules by targeting Bik1p to the plus end; Kip2p levels are controlled during the cell cycle; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle (706 aa)
     
0.977
CIN8
Kinesin motor protein involved in mitotic spindle assembly and chromosome segregation; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle. Interacts with spindle microtubules to produce an outwardly directed force acting upon the poles. Following spindle assembly, CIN8 and KIP1 apparently act to oppose a force that draws separated poles back together. This force seems to be mediated by KAR3 (1000 aa)
     
0.969
CIK1
Kinesin-associated protein required for both karyogamy and mitotic spindle organization, interacts stably and specifically with Kar3p and may function to target this kinesin to a specific cellular role; has similarity to Vik1p; A developmentally regulated protein important for microtubule functions. Targets KAR3 to the cytoplasmic microtubules during mating. Essential for KAR3 function during prophase of meiosis I. Required for interhomolog recombination, synapsis of homologous chromosomes and establishment of a meiosis I spindle (594 aa)
       
  0.965
VIK1
Protein that forms a complex with Kar3p at the spindle pole body, possible regulator of Kar3p function in microtubule-mediated processes; required for sister chromatid cohesion; has similarity to Cik1p; Targets and/or maintains KAR3 at the spindle pole body during vegetative growth (647 aa)
       
  0.965
KIP1
Kinesin-related motor protein required for mitotic spindle assembly, chromosome segregation, and 2 micron plasmid partitioning; functionally redundant with Cin8p for chromosomal but not plasmid functions; Required for assembly of the mitotic spindle. Interact with spindle microtubules to produce an outwardly directed force acting upon the poles. Following spindle assembly, CIN8 and KIP1 apparently act to oppose a force that draws separated poles back together. This force seems to be mediate by KAR3 (1111 aa)
     
 
0.963
MAD2
Component of the spindle-assembly checkpoint complex; delays the onset of anaphase in cells with defects in mitotic spindle assembly; forms a complex with Mad1p; regulates APC/C activity during prometaphase and metaphase of meiosis I; Central component of the spindle assembly checkpoint which is a feedback control that prevents cells with incompletely assembled spindles from leaving mitosis. Thought to be recruited to unattached kinetochores by MAD1. During checkpoint activity, MAD2 is relayed from the MAD1-MAD2 complex to the mitotic checkpoint complex (MCC). MCC and presumably the MA [...] (196 aa)
     
 
  0.954
TUB2
Beta-tubulin; associates with alpha-tubulin (Tub1p and Tub3p) to form tubulin dimer, which polymerizes to form microtubules; Tubulin is the major constituent of microtubules. It binds two moles of GTP, one at an exchangeable site on the beta chain and one at a non-exchangeable site on the alpha chain (457 aa)
       
 
  0.954
BIM1
Microtubule-binding protein that together with Kar9p makes up the cortical microtubule capture site and delays the exit from mitosis when the spindle is oriented abnormally; Binds microtubules (344 aa)
