STRINGSTRING
ECT1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ECT1" - Ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase, catalyzes the second step of phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis 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

ECT1Ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase, catalyzes the second step of phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis; involved in the maintenance of plasma membrane; similar to mammalian CTP- phosphocholine cytidylyl-transferases; Ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase which catalyzes the second step of phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis. Involved in the maintenance of plasma membrane and required for proper sporulation (323 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
EKI1
Ethanolamine kinase, primarily responsible for phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis via the CDP-ethanolamine pathway; exhibits some choline kinase activity, thus contributing to phosphatidylcholine synthesis via the CDP-choline pathway; Catalyzes the committed step of phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis via the CDP-ethanolamine pathway. Also exhibits choline kinase activity but its preferred substrate is ethanolamine (534 aa)
     
 
  0.997
EPT1
Sn-1,2-diacylglycerol ethanolamine- and cholinephosphotranferase; not essential for viability; Catalyzes the final step in the CDP-ethanolamine route leading to phosphatidylethanolamine (PE). Can also catalyze the formation of phosphatidylcholine (PC) from CDP-choline, but does not substantially contribute to PC biosynthesis. Preferentially uses CDP-dimethylethanolamine and CDP-propanolamine as aminoalcohol substrates. Shows highest activity toward di- unsaturated diacylglycerol species as lipid substrates. The CDP- ethanolamine pathway may play a role in maintaining the proper PE spec [...] (391 aa)

CKI1
Choline kinase, catalyzing the first step in phosphatidylcholine synthesis via the CDP-choline (Kennedy pathway); exhibits some ethanolamine kinase activity contributing to phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis via the CDP-ethanolamine pathway; Responsible for phosphatidylcholine synthesis via the CDP-choline pathway. Also exhibits ethanolamine kinase activity but at 14% efficiency compared with choline (582 aa)
     
 
  0.923
CPT1
Cholinephosphotransferase, required for phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis and for inositol-dependent regulation of EPT1 transcription; Catalyzes the final step in the CDP-choline route leading to phosphatidylcholin (PC). Preferentially uses CDP- monomethylethanolamine as aminoalcohol substrate. Shows highest activity toward di- and mono-unsaturated diacylglycerol species as lipid substrates. The CDP-choline pathway only contributes to net PC synthesis if exogenous choline is present. In its absence, this pathway recycles choline from PC turnover and may contribute to maintaining the pro [...] (393 aa)

PSD2
Phosphatidylserine decarboxylase of the Golgi and vacuolar membranes, converts phosphatidylserine to phosphatidylethanolamine; Catalyzes the formation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PtdEtn) from phosphatidylserine (PtdSer). Plays a central role in phospholipid metabolism and in the interorganelle trafficking of phosphatidylserine (PubMed-7890740, PubMed-7890739, PubMed-24366873). Phosphatidylethanolamine produced by PSD2 is insufficient to completely provide the PtdEtn pool required by mitochondria under respiratory conditions (PubMed-11294902). PSD2 is also involved in the PtdSer transp [...] (1138 aa)

PSD1
Phosphatidylserine decarboxylase of the mitochondrial inner membrane, converts phosphatidylserine to phosphatidylethanolamine; Catalyzes the formation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PtdEtn) from phosphatidylserine (PtdSer). Plays a central role in phospholipid metabolism and in the interorganelle trafficking of phosphatidylserine (PubMed-8227017, PubMed-8407984, PubMed-17976194, PubMed-23124206, PubMed-25829489). Phosphatidylethanolamine formed in the mitochondria is exported to other membranes to fullfill their requirements for PtdEtn (PubMed-8530379, PubMed-11294902). Required for norm [...] (500 aa)

URA3
Orotidine-5’-phosphate (OMP) decarboxylase, catalyzes the sixth enzymatic step in the de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidines, converting OMP into uridine monophosphate (UMP); converts 5-FOA into 5-fluorouracil, a toxic compound (267 aa)
     
 
  0.649
ALE1
Broad-specificity lysophospholipid acyltransferase, part of MBOAT family of membrane-bound O-acyltransferases; key component of Lands cycle; may have role in fatty acid exchange at sn-2 position of mature glycerophospholipids; Membrane-bound O-acyltransferase that mediates the incorporation of unsaturated acyl chains into the sn-2 position of phospholipids. Preferentially acylates lysophosphocholine, but also lysophosphoethanolamine and lysophosphatidylglycerol (619 aa)
