STRING protein interaction network
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 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
YGR122WUncharacterized protein YGR122W; Protein that may be involved in pH regulation; probable ortholog of A. nidulans PalC, which is involved in pH regulation and binds to the ESCRT-III complex; null mutant does not properly process Rim101p and has decreased resistance to rapamycin; GFP-fusion protein is cytoplasmic; relative distribution to cytoplasm increases upon DNA replication stress (402 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Programmed cell death 6-interacting protein; pH-response regulator protein palA/RIM20; Protein involved in proteolytic activation of Rim101p; part of response to alkaline pH; PalA/AIP1/Alix family member; interaction with the ESCRT-III subunit Snf7p suggests a relationship between pH response and multivesicular body formation
pH-response transcription factor pacC/RIM101; Cys2His2 zinc-finger transcriptional repressor; involved in alkaline responsive gene repression as part of adaptation to alkaline conditions; involved in cell wall assembly; required for alkaline pH-stimulated haploid invasive growth and sporulation; activated by alkaline-dependent proteolytic processing which results in removal of the C-terminal tail; similar to A. nidulans PacC; Belongs to the pacC/RIM101 family
Calpain-like cysteine protease; involved in proteolytic activation of Rim101p in response to alkaline pH; localizes to punctate structures in alkaline conditions and in vps4 mutant; has similarity to A. nidulans palB
Vacuolar-sorting protein SNF7; One of four subunits of the ESCRT-III complex; involved in the sorting of transmembrane proteins into the multivesicular body (MVB) pathway; recruited from the cytoplasm to endosomal membranes; ESCRT-III stands for endosomal sorting complex required for transport III
Protein DFG16; Probable multiple transmembrane protein; involved in diploid invasive and pseudohyphal growth upon nitrogen starvation; is glycosylated and phosphorylated; interacts with Rim21p and Rim9p in the plasma membrane to form a pH-sensing complex in the Rim101 pathway and is required to maintain Rim21p levels; required for accumulation of processed Rim101p
pH-response regulator protein palF/RIM8; Protein involved in proteolytic activation of Rim101p; part of response to alkaline pH; interacts with ESCRT-1 subunits Stp22p and Vps28p; essential for anaerobic growth; member of the arrestin-related trafficking adaptor family
pH-response regulator protein palI/RIM9; Plasma membrane protein of unknown function; involved in the proteolytic activation of Rim101p in response to alkaline pH; interacts with Rim21p and Dfg16p to form a pH-sensing complex in the Rim101 pathway and is required to maintain Rim21p levels; has similarity to A. nidulans PalI;
pH-response regulator protein palH/RIM21; pH sensor molecule, component of the RIM101 pathway; has a role in cell wall construction and alkaline pH response; is glycosylated and phosphorylated; interacts with Dfg16p and Rim9p to form a pH-sensing complex; localization to the plasma membrane is dependent on Dfg16p and Rim9p; has similarity to A. nidulans PalH
Putative uncharacterized protein OPI8; Dubious open reading frame; unlikely to encode a functional protein, based on available experimental and comparative sequence data; partially overlaps verified gene DID2/YKR035W-A
Putative protein of unknown function; transcription is significantly increased in a NAP1 deletion background; deletion mutant has increased accumulation of nickel and selenium; Belongs to the UPF0377 family
