STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

SKN1Protein involved in sphingolipid biosynthesis; type II membrane protein; SKN1 has a paralog, KRE6, that arose from the whole genome duplication. (771 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
IPT1
Inositolphosphotransferase; involved in synthesis of mannose-(inositol-P)2-ceramide (M(IP)2C), the most abundant sphingolipid; can mutate to resistance to the antifungals syringomycin E and DmAMP1 and to K. lactis zymocin.
   
 
 0.871
KRE9
Glycoprotein involved in cell wall beta-glucan assembly; null mutation leads to severe growth defects, aberrant multibudded morphology, and mating defects.
  
 
 0.864
KNH1
Protein with similarity to Kre9p; Kre9p is involved in cell wall beta 1,6-glucan synthesis; overproduction suppresses growth defects of a kre9 null mutant; required for propionic acid resistance.
  
 
 
 0.831
KRE5
Killer toxin-resistance protein 5; Protein required for beta-1,6 glucan biosynthesis; mutations result in aberrant morphology and severe growth defects.
   
  
 0.807
KRE1
Cell wall glycoprotein involved in beta-glucan assembly; serves as a K1 killer toxin membrane receptor.
   
 
 0.799
ROT1
Protein ROT1; Molecular chaperone involved in protein folding in ER; mutation causes defects in cell wall synthesis and lysis of autophagic bodies, suppresses tor2 mutations, and is synthetically lethal with kar2-1 and with rot2 mutations; involved in N-linked glycosylation and O-mannosylation; transmembrane helix Ser250 is essential for Rot1p to interact with other membrane components and exert its functional role, avoiding exposure of Ser H-bonding group at lipid-exposed surface.
  
  
 0.776
SUR1
Mannosylinositol phosphorylceramide (MIPC) synthase catalytic subunit; forms a complex with regulatory subunit Csg2p; function in sphingolipid biosynthesis is overlapping with that of Csh1p; SUR1 has a paralog, CSH1, that arose from the whole genome duplication.
  
  
 0.692
KRE6
Beta-glucan synthesis-associated protein KRE6; Type II integral membrane protein; required for beta-1,6 glucan biosynthesis; putative beta-glucan synthase; localizes to ER, plasma membrane, sites of polarized growth and secretory vesicles; functionally redundant with Skn1p; KRE6 has a paralog, SKN1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the SKN1/KRE6 family.
  
 
0.684
KEG1
Beta-1,6-glucan synthesis-associated protein KEG1; Integral membrane protein of the ER; physically interacts with Kre6p; has a role in the synthesis of beta-1,6-glucan in the cell wall; required for cell viability.
    
 
 0.669
FKS1
1,3-beta-glucan synthase component FKS1; Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase; functionally redundant with alternate catalytic subunit Gsc2p; binds to regulatory subunit Rho1p; involved in cell wall synthesis and maintenance; localizes to sites of cell wall remodeling; FKS1 has a paralog, GSC2, that arose from the whole genome duplication.
