STRINGSTRING
KSS1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"KSS1" - Mitogen-activated protein kinase 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

KSS1Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) involved in signal transduction pathways that control filamentous growth and pheromone response; the KSS1 gene is nonfunctional in S288C strains and functional in W303 strains; Together with closely related FUS3, KSS1 is the final kinase in the signal transduction cascade regulating activation/repression of the mating and filamentation pathways, induced by pheromone and nitrogen/carbon limitation, respectively. Phosphorylated KSS1 activates both pathways, whereas activated FUS3 activates the mating but suppresses the filamentation pathway. KSS1 a [...] (368 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
STE12
Transcription factor that is activated by a MAPK signaling cascade; activates genes involved in mating or pseudohyphal/invasive growth pathways; cooperates with Tec1p transcription factor to regulate genes specific for invasive growth; Binds to the DNA sequence mediating pheromone induction (called the pheromone response element = PRE) which is found in the upstream control region of several a-, alpha- and haploid- specific genes. Involved in mating of haploids and in pseudohyphae formation in diploids (688 aa)
       
  0.999
PBS2
MAP kinase kinase of the HOG signaling pathway; activated under severe osmotic stress; mitophagy-specific regulator; plays a role in regulating Ty1 transposition; Kinase involved in a signal transduction pathway that is activated by changes in the osmolarity of the extracellular environment. Seems to phosphorylate HOG1 on a tyrosine residue (668 aa)
     
0.997
STE7
Signal transducing MAP kinase kinase involved in pheromone response, where it phosphorylates Fus3p, and in the pseudohyphal/invasive growth pathway, through phosphorylation of Kss1p; phosphorylated by Ste11p, degraded by ubiquitin pathway; Serine/threonine protein kinase required for cell-type- specific transcription and signal transduction in yeast. It is thought that it is phosphorylated by the ste11 protein kinase and that it can phosphorylate the FUS3 and or KSS1 kinases (515 aa)
   
0.997
MSG5
Dual-specificity protein phosphatase; exists in 2 isoforms; required for maintenance of a low level of signaling through the cell integrity pathway, adaptive response to pheromone; regulates and is regulated by Slt2p; dephosphorylates Fus3p; Dual specificity phosphatase that dephosphorylates MAP kinase FUS3 on both a Tyr and a Ser or Thr. Has a role in adaptation to pheromone (489 aa)
       
  0.996
CDC42
Small rho-like GTPase, essential for establishment and maintenance of cell polarity; mutants have defects in the organization of actin and septins; Involved in development of cell polarity during the cell division cycle, and essential for bud emergence. Affects signaling in the pheromone-response pathway through the STE20 protein kinase. Negatively regulated by the GTPase-activating proteins RGA1, BEM3, and BEM4 (191 aa)
     
  0.993
DIG2
MAP kinase-responsive inhibitor of the Ste12p transcription factor, involved in the regulation of mating-specific genes and the invasive growth pathway; related regulators Dig1p and Dig2p bind to Ste12p; DIG2 and DIG1 are negative regulators of the filamentation and pheromone induced mating program. DIG1 and DIG2 inhibit the transcriptional activity of STE12 by direct protein- protein interaction. DIG2 binds to the DNA binding domain (DBD) of STE12 and thus inhibits transcription when overexpressed (323 aa)
       
  0.992
DIG1
MAP kinase-responsive inhibitor of the Ste12p transcription factor, involved in the regulation of mating-specific genes and the invasive growth pathway; related regulators Dig1p and Dig2p bind to Ste12p; DIG1 and DIG2 are negative regulators of the filamentation and pheromone induced mating program. DIG1 and DIG2 inhibit the transcriptional activity of STE12 by direct protein- protein interaction. DIG1 colocalizes to promoters with STE12 and redistributes with it during induction of filamentation (by butanol) or mating (by pheromone) to program specific genes, but binding of DIG1 to ST [...] (452 aa)
       
  0.990
PTP2
Phosphotyrosine-specific protein phosphatase involved in the inactivation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) during osmolarity sensing; dephosporylates Hog1p MAPK and regulates its localization; localized to the nucleus; Major phosphatase responsible with PTP3 for tyrosine dephosphorylation of MAP kinase HOG1 to inactivate its activity. May also be involved in the regulation of MAP kinase FUS3. May be implicated in the ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation (750 aa)
       
  0.986
PTP3
Phosphotyrosine-specific protein phosphatase involved in the inactivation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) during osmolarity sensing; dephosporylates Hog1p MAPK and regulates its localization; localized to the cytoplasm; Major phosphatase responsible for tyrosine dephosphorylation of MAP kinases FUS3 and HOG1 to inactivate their activity; it also has important roles, along with MSG5, in the inactivation of FUS3 following pheromone stimulation (928 aa)
       
  0.986
CDC14
Protein phosphatase required for mitotic exit; required for rDNA segregation, cytokinesis, meiosis I spindle disassembly, environmental stress response; held in nucleolus by Cdc55p in early meiosis, liberated by FEAR and Mitotic Exit Network in anaphase, enabling it to effect a decrease in CDK/B-cyclin activity and mitotic exit; sequestered in metaphase II, released upon entry into anaphase II; human homolog CDC14A can complement thermosensitivity of yeast cdc14-1 mutant; Protein phosphatase which antagonizes mitotic cyclin- dependent kinase CDC28, the inactivation of which is essentia [...] (551 aa)
