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
RIM4Meiotic activator RIM4; Putative RNA-binding protein; required for the expression of early and middle sporulation genes (713 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in activation of meiosis; associates with Ime1p and mediates its stability, activates Ndt80p; IME2 expression is positively regulated by Ime1p; human CDK2 can complement ime2 null mutant
G2/mitotic-specific cyclin-3; B-type cyclin involved in cell cycle progression; activates Cdc28p to promote the G2/M transition; may be involved in DNA replication and spindle assembly; accumulates during S phase and G2, then targeted for ubiquitin-mediated degradation; relative distribution to the nucleus increases upon DNA replication stress; CLB3 has a paralog, CLB4, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Meiosis-inducing protein 1; Master regulator of meiosis that is active only during meiotic events; activates transcription of early meiotic genes through interaction with Ume6p; degraded by the 26S proteasome following phosphorylation by Ime2p; transcription is negatively regulated in cis by the IRT1 long noncoding antisense RNA
Meiosis-specific transcription factor; required for exit from pachytene and for full meiotic recombination; activates middle sporulation genes; competes with Sum1p for binding to promoters containing middle sporulation elements (MSE)
Protein essential for meiotic DNA replication and sporulation; cytoplasmic protein; subunit of the MIS complex which controls mRNA methylation during during the induction of sporulation; also interacts with Orc2p, which is a component of the origin recognition complex; Belongs to the fl(2)d family
Sporulation-specific protein 2; Sporulation specific protein that localizes to the spore wall; required for sporulation at a point after meiosis II and during spore wall formation; expression controlled by a tightly regulated middle-meiotic promoter that is activated by Ndt80p; translation of SSP2 mRNA is delayed, such that the mRNA is present as nuclear divisions are taking place but is not engaged by ribosomes until relatively late in meiotic development
RNA-binding protein that may be involved in translational regulation; binds specific categories of mRNAs, including those that contain upstream open reading frames (uORFs) and internal ribosome entry sites (IRES); interacts genetically with chromatin remodelers and splicing factors, linking chromatin state, splicing and as a result mRNA maturation
Protein farnesyltransferase/geranylgeranyltransferase type-1 subunit alpha; Alpha subunit of farnesyltransferase and geranylgeranyltransferase-I; farnesyltransferase (Ram2p-Ram1p heterodimer) catalyzes the addition of 15-carbon isoprenoid farnesyl to substrate proteins containing a CAAX consensus motif; type I geranylgeranyltransferase (Ram2p-Cdc43p heterodimer) catalyzes the addition of the 20-carbon isoprenoid geranylgeranyl to substrate proteins containing a CaaL consensus motif; required for membrane localization of Ras proteins and a-factor
Putative uncharacterized protein YDR510C-A; Dubious open reading frame unlikely to encode a functional protein; identified by gene-trapping, microarray-based expression analysis, and genome-wide homology searching
Activator of C kinase protein 1; Protein that functions in the cell wall integrity pathway; functions upstream of Pkc1p; GFP-fusion protein expression is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS; non-tagged Ack1p is detected in purified mitochondria
