STRINGSTRING
PEX8 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"PEX8" - Intraperoxisomal organizer of the peroxisomal import machinery, tightly associated with the lumenal face of the peroxisomal membrane, essential for peroxisome biogenesis, binds PTS1-signal receptor Pex5p 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

PEX8Intraperoxisomal organizer of the peroxisomal import machinery, tightly associated with the lumenal face of the peroxisomal membrane, essential for peroxisome biogenesis, binds PTS1-signal receptor Pex5p; Required for peroxisome assembly (589 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
PEX13
Integral peroxisomal membrane protein required for translocation of peroxisomal matrix proteins, interacts with the PTS1 signal recognition factor Pex5p and the PTS2 signal recognition factor Pex7p, forms a complex with Pex14p and Pex17p; Component of the peroxisomal translocation machinery with PEX14 and PEX17. Interacts with the PTS1 receptor (PAS10/PEX5) (386 aa)
       
  0.998
PEX10
Peroxisomal membrane E3 ubiquitin ligase, required for for Ubc4p-dependent Pex5p ubiquitination and peroxisomal matrix protein import; contains zinc-binding RING domain; mutations in human homolog cause various peroxisomal disorders; Somewhat implicated in the biogenesis of peroxisomes (337 aa)
       
  0.997
PEX12
C3HC4-type RING-finger peroxin and E3 ubiquitin ligase, required for peroxisome biogenesis and peroxisomal matrix protein import; forms translocation subcomplex with Pex2p and Pex10p; mutations in human homolog cause peroxisomal disorder; Required for protein import into peroxisomes (399 aa)
       
  0.997
PEX5
Peroxisomal membrane signal receptor for the C-terminal tripeptide signal sequence (PTS1) of peroxisomal matrix proteins, required for peroxisomal matrix protein import; also proposed to have PTS1-receptor independent functions; Binds to the C-terminal PTS1-type tripeptide peroxisomal targeting signal (SKL-type) and plays an essential role in peroxisomal protein import (612 aa)
       
  0.997
PEX19
Chaperone and import receptor for newly-synthesized class I peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs), binds PMPs in the cytoplasm and delivers them to the peroxisome for subsequent insertion into the peroxisomal membrane; Required for proper post-translational import and stabilization of peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs). Acts as a cytosolic import receptor for PMPs and delivers them to the docking factor PEX3 at the peroxisomal membrane for subsequent insertion into the membrane. Acts as a chaperone in stabilizing or maintaining PMPs in the lipid bilayer. Directs PEX17, a peripheral co [...] (342 aa)
       
  0.997
PEX17
Membrane peroxin of the peroxisomal importomer complex; complex facilitates the import of peroxisomal matrix proteins; required for peroxisome biogenesis; Component of the peroxisomal translocation machinery with PEX13 and PEX14. Interacts indirectly with the PTS1 receptor (PAS10/PEX5) and directly binds to PEX14. Required for import of both PTS1 and PTS2 proteins (199 aa)
       
  0.994
PEX14
Peroxisomal membrane peroxin that is a central component of the peroxisomal protein import machinery; interacts with both PTS1 (Pex5p) and PTS2 (Pex7p), peroxisomal matrix protein signal recognition factors and membrane receptor Pex13p; Component of the peroxisomal translocation machinery with PEX13 and PEX17. Interacts with both the PTS1 and PTS2 receptors. Binds directly to PEX17 (341 aa)
       
  0.994
PEX2
RING-finger peroxin and E3 ubiquitin ligase, peroxisomal membrane protein with a C-terminal zinc-binding RING domain, forms translocation subcomplex with Pex10p and Pex12p which functions in peroxisomal matrix protein import; Required for the import of several proteins into peroxisomes (271 aa)
       
  0.991
PEX11
Peroxisomal membrane protein required for medium-chain fatty acid oxidation and peroxisome proliferation, possibly by inducing membrane curvature; localization regulated by phosphorylation; transcription regulated by Adr1p and Pip2p-Oaf1p; Involved in peroxisomal proliferation. Promotes peroxisome division and biogenesis (236 aa)
         
  0.978
PEX6
AAA-peroxin that heterodimerizes with AAA-peroxin Pex1p and participates in the recycling of peroxisomal signal receptor Pex5p from the peroxisomal membrane to the cystosol; Component of the peroxisomal protein import machinery. Together with PEX1, mediates the ATP-dependent relocation and recycling of the peroxisomal targeting signal-1 (PTS1) import receptor PEX5 from the peroxisomal membrane to the cytosol, where it is then available for another round of protein import into the organelle (1030 aa)
