STRINGSTRING
MSB2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MSB2" - Mucin family member involved in the Cdc42p- and MAP kinase-dependent filamentous growth signaling pathway 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

MSB2Mucin family member involved in the Cdc42p- and MAP kinase-dependent filamentous growth signaling pathway; also functions as an osmosensor in parallel to the Sho1p-mediated pathway; potential Cdc28p substrate; Plasma membrane signaling mucin that promotes activation of the MAPK for the filamentous growth pathway. Partially redundant with the SHO1 osmosensing branch for the activation of STE11 (1306 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SHO1
Transmembrane osmosensor involved in activation of the Cdc42p- and MAP kinase-dependent filamentous growth pathway and the high-osmolarity glycerol response pathway; phosphorylated by Hog1p; interacts with Pbs2p, Msb2p, Hkr1p, and Ste11p; Plasma membrane osmosensor that activates the high osmolarity glycerol (HOG) MAPK signaling pathway in response to high osmolarity. Detects changes in external osmolarity and activates PBS2 through the stimulation of STE11 and targets PBS2 to the plasma membrane. PBS2 activation leads to changes in glycerol production that helps to balance the intrace [...] (367 aa)
