NSG1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"NSG1" - Protein involved in regulation of sterol biosynthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

NSG1Protein involved in regulation of sterol biosynthesis; specifically stabilizes Hmg2p, one of two HMG-CoA isoenzymes that catalyze the rate-limiting step in sterol biosynthesis; homolog of mammalian INSIG proteins; Stabilizes the HMG-CoA reductase HMG2 by preventing its HRD1-dependent degradation. Binds directly to the sterol-sensing domain (SSD)-containing transmembrane region of HMG2, promoting its folding to protect it from degradation (291 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
One of two isozymes of HMG-CoA reductase that convert HMG-CoA to mevalonate, a rate-limiting step in sterol biosynthesis; overproduction induces assembly of peripheral ER membrane arrays and short nuclear-associated membrane stacks; One of 2 isozymes that catalyze the conversion of HMG- CoA to mevalonate. It is the rate-limiting enzyme of the sterol biosynthesis pathway. Involved in ergosterol biosynthesis (1045 aa)
Transcription factor, undergoes proteolytic processing by SPS (Ssy1p-Ptr3p-Ssy5p)-sensor component Ssy5p in response to extracellular amino acids; activates transcription of amino acid permease genes and may have a role in tRNA processing; Transcription factor involved in the regulation of gene expression in response to extracellular amino acid levels. Synthesized as latent cytoplasmic precursor, which, upon a signal initiated by the plasma membrane SPS (SSY1-PTR3-SSY5) amino acid sensor system, becomes proteolytically activated and relocates to the nucleus, where it induces the expres [...] (519 aa)
