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
OSH3Member of an oxysterol-binding protein family; this family has seven members in S. cerevisiae; family members have overlapping, redundant functions in sterol metabolism and collectively perform a function essential for viability; contains FFAT motif; interacts with ER anchor Scs2p at patches at the plasma membrane; regulated by sterol binding; Belongs to the OSBP family (996 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Integral ER membrane protein, regulates phospholipid metabolism; one of 6 proteins (Ist2p, Scs2p, Scs22p, Tcb1p, Tcb2p, Tcb3p) that connect ER to plasma membrane (PM) and regulate PI4P levels by controlling access of Sac1p phosphatase to substrate PI4P in the PM; interacts with FFAT motifs in Opi1p, Swh1p, Osh2p, and Osh3p; involved in telomeric silencing; VAP homolog; SCS2 has a paralog, SCS22, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the VAMP-associated protein (VAP) (TC 9.B.17) family
Oxysterol-binding protein homolog 4; One of seven members of the yeast oxysterol binding protein family; involved in negative regulation of Sec14p-dependent Golgi complex secretory functions, peripheral membrane protein that localizes to the Golgi complex; KES1 has a paralog, HES1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the OSBP family
Phosphoinositide phosphatase SAC1; Phosphatidylinositol phosphate (PtdInsP) phosphatase; involved in hydrolysis of PtdIns[4]P in the early and medial Golgi; regulated by interaction with Vps74p; ER localized transmembrane protein which cycles through the Golgi; involved in protein trafficking and processing, secretion, and cell wall maintenance; regulates sphingolipid biosynthesis through the modulation of PtdIns(4)P metabolism
Phosphatidylinositol-4-kinase; functions in the Pkc1p protein kinase pathway; required for normal vacuole morphology, cell wall integrity, and actin cytoskeleton organization; Belongs to the PI3/PI4-kinase family. Type III PI4K subfamily
Vesicle-associated membrane protein-associated protein SCS22; Protein involved in regulation of phospholipid metabolism; one of 6 proteins (Ist2p, Scs2p, Scs22p, Tcb1p, Tcb2p, Tcb3p) that connect the ER and plasma membrane (PM); regulates PM PI4P levels by controlling access of the Sac1p phosphatase to its substrate, PI4P; human VAP homolog; similar to D. melanogaster inturned protein; SWAT-GFP and mCherry fusion proteins localize to the cytosol; SCS22 has a paralog, SCS2, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the VAMP-associated protein (VAP) (TC 9.B.17) family
Protein required for Stt4-containing PI kinase complex localization; required for Stt4-containing phosphoinositide (PI) kinase patch assembly at the plasma membrane; recruited to the plasma membrane via a conserved basic patch near its N-terminus; exhibits synthetic lethal genetic interactions with PHO85; has sequence similarity to the Drosophila rolling blackout (RBO) gene
Transcriptional repressor OPI1; Transcriptional regulator of a variety of genes; phosphorylation by protein kinase A stimulates Opi1p function in negative regulation of phospholipid biosynthetic genes; involved in telomere maintenance; null exhibits disrupted mitochondrial metabolism and low cardiolipin content, strongly correlated with overproduction of inositol; binds to phosphatidic acid
Inositol-3-phosphate synthase; involved in synthesis of inositol phosphates and inositol-containing phospholipids; transcription is coregulated with other phospholipid biosynthetic genes by Ino2p and Ino4p, which bind the UASINO DNA element; Belongs to the myo-inositol 1-phosphate synthase family
Cargo-transport protein involved in endocytosis; interacts with phosphatidylinositol-4-kinase Stt4p; is required, along with Efr3p, for the assembly and recruitment of multiple copies of the kinase into phosphoinositide kinase (PIK) patches at the plasma membrane; positively regulates Stt4p; GFP-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm; YGR198W is an essential gene
Oxysterol-binding protein-related protein 9/10/11; Protein implicated in the regulation of ergosterol biosynthesis; one of a seven member gene family with a common essential function and non-essential unique functions; similar to human oxysterol binding protein (OSBP); SWAT-GFP and mCherry fusion proteins localize to the bud neck and vacuolar membrane; HES1 has a paralog, KES1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
