STRINGSTRING
MEP1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MEP1" - Ammonium permease 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

MEP1Ammonium permease; belongs to a ubiquitous family of cytoplasmic membrane proteins that transport only ammonium (NH4+); expression is under the nitrogen catabolite repression regulation; Transporter for ammonium (both charged and uncharged NH3 and NH4) to use as a nitrogen source. Can also transport methylamine. The affinity of MEP1 is about twenty times lower than that of MEP2. MEP3 has the lowest affinity (492 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MEP2
Ammonium permease involved in regulation of pseudohyphal growth; belongs to a ubiquitous family of cytoplasmic membrane proteins that transport only ammonium (NH4+); expression is under the nitrogen catabolite repression regulation; Transporter for ammonium (both charged and uncharged NH3 and NH4) to use as a nitrogen source. The affinity of MEP2 is about twenty times higher than that of MEP1. MEP3 has the lowest affinity. Under ammonium limitation acts as an ammonium sensor, generating a signal that leads to pseudohyphal growth (499 aa)
   
 
0.954
MEP3
Ammonium permease of high capacity and low affinity; belongs to a ubiquitous family of cytoplasmic membrane proteins that transport only ammonium (NH4+); expression is under the nitrogen catabolite repression regulation ammonia permease; Transporter for ammonium (both charged and uncharged NH3 and NH4) to use as a nitrogen source. The affinity of MEP2 is about twenty times higher than that of MEP1. MEP3 has the lowest affinity (489 aa)
   
 
0.879
GTT3
Protein of unknown function with a possible role in glutathione metabolism, as suggested by computational analysis of large-scale protein-protein interaction data; GFP-fusion protein localizes to the nuclear periphery (337 aa)
       
      0.758
GLT1
NAD(+)-dependent glutamate synthase (GOGAT), synthesizes glutamate from glutamine and alpha-ketoglutarate; with Gln1p, forms the secondary pathway for glutamate biosynthesis from ammonia; expression regulated by nitrogen source; Forms L-glutamate from L-glutamine and 2-oxoglutarate. Represents an alternative pathway to L-glutamate dehydrogenase for the biosynthesis of L-glutamate. Participates with glutamine synthetase in ammonia assimilation processes. The enzyme is specific for NADH, L-glutamine and 2-oxoglutarate (2145 aa)
   
   
  0.746
GLN1
Glutamine synthetase (GS), synthesizes glutamine from glutamate and ammonia; with Glt1p, forms the secondary pathway for glutamate biosynthesis from ammonia; expression regulated by nitrogen source and by amino acid limitation (370 aa)
         
  0.715
GAP1
General amino acid permease; Gap1p senses the presence of amino acid substrates to regulate localization to the plasma membrane when needed; Permease for various amino acids as well as for GABA. Can also transport L-cysteine and beta-alanine (602 aa)
     
   
  0.693
DIP5
Dicarboxylic amino acid permease, mediates high-affinity and high-capacity transport of L-glutamate and L-aspartate; also a transporter for Gln, Asn, Ser, Ala, and Gly; Can transport glutamate, aspartate, glutamine, asparagine, serine, alanine and glycine (608 aa)
     
 
  0.677
GLN3
Transcriptional activator of genes regulated by nitrogen catabolite repression (NCR), localization and activity regulated by quality of nitrogen source; Positive nitrogen regulatory protein. Required for the activation of transcription of a number of genes (including the allantoin pathway genes) in response to the replacement of glutamine by glutamate as source of nitrogen. Binds the nitrogen upstream activation sequence of GLN1, the gene encoding glutamine synthetase. URE2 may catalytically inactivate GLN3 in response to an increase in the intracellular concentration of glutamine (730 aa)
           
  0.657
NPR1
Protein kinase that stabilizes several plasma membrane amino acid transporters by antagonizing their ubiquitin-mediated degradation; phosphorylates Aly2p; Nutrient-regulated protein kinase that promotes the activity of at least 6 distinct transport systems for nitrogenous nutrients under conditions of nitrogen catabolite derepression. Under poor nitrogen growth conditions, required for post-Golgi sorting of the general amino acid permease GAP1 and the three known ammonia permeases, MEP1/2/3, to the plasma membrane. Contributes also to the stability and the retention of GAP1 at the plas [...] (790 aa)
           
  0.640
CTR3
High-affinity copper transporter of the plasma membrane, acts as a trimer; gene is disrupted by a Ty2 transposon insertion in many laboratory strains of S. cerevisiae; Required for high affinity copper (probably reduced Cu I) transport into the cell (241 aa)
