NVJ1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"NVJ1" - Nuclear envelope protein, anchored to the nuclear inner membrane, that interacts with the vacuolar membrane protein Vac8p to promote formation of nucleus-vacuole junctions during piecemeal microautophagy of the nucleus 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

NVJ1Nuclear envelope protein, anchored to the nuclear inner membrane, that interacts with the vacuolar membrane protein Vac8p to promote formation of nucleus-vacuole junctions during piecemeal microautophagy of the nucleus (PMN); Involved in the formation of nucleus-vacuole (NV) junctions during piecemeal microautophagy of the nucleus (PMN). NV junctions are interorganelle interfaces mediated by NVJ1 in the nuclear envelope and VAC8 on the vacuole membrane. Together, NVJ1 and VAC8 form Velcro-like patches through which teardrop-like portions of the nucleus are pinched off into the vacuolar [...] (321 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Phosphorylated and palmitoylated vacuolar membrane protein; interacts with Atg13p, required for the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; interacts with Nvj1p to form nucleus-vacuole junctions; Functions in both vacuole inheritance and protein targeting from the cytoplasm to vacuole (578 aa)
Enoyl reductase that catalyzes the last step in each cycle of very long chain fatty acid elongation, localizes to the ER, highly enriched in a structure marking nuclear-vacuolar junctions, coimmunoprecipitates with elongases Fen1p and Sur4p; Catalyzes the last of the four reactions of the long- chain fatty acids elongation cycle. This endoplasmic reticulum- bound enzymatic process, allows the addition of 2 carbons to the chain of long- and very long-chain fatty acids/VLCFAs per cycle. This enzyme reduces the trans-2,3-enoyl-CoA fatty acid intermediate to an acyl-CoA that can be further [...] (310 aa)
Protein similar to mammalian oxysterol-binding protein; contains ankyrin repeats; localizes to the Golgi and the nucleus-vacuole junction; Lipid-binding protein involved in maintenance of intracellular sterol distribution and homeostasis. Binds to phosphoinositides. May be involved in formation of PMN vesicles by altering the membrane lipid composition (1188 aa)
Forkhead Associated domain containing protein and putative transcription factor found associated with chromatin; target of SBF transcription factor; expression is periodic and peaks in G1; similar to PLM2; Binds to the promoters of genes with functions important for the G1/S (start) transition; primarily genes involved in pheromone response, polarized growth and transcription (489 aa)
Regulatory subunit of the Atg1p signaling complex; stimulates Atg1p kinase activity; required for vesicle formation during autophagy and the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; involved in Atg9p, Atg23p, and Atg27p cycling; Activates the ATG1 kinase in a nutritional condition dependent manner through the TOR pathway, leading to autophagy. Required for autophosphorylation of ATG1 at ’Thr-226’ and its dimerization. May also be involved in the regulation of autophagy through SNF1. Involved in ATG9 and ATG23 cycling through the pre- autophagosomal structure. Also involved in cyto [...] (738 aa)
Phosphoprotein involved in vacuole inheritance; degraded in late M phase of the cell cycle; acts as a vacuole-specific receptor for myosin Myo2p; Vacuole-specific MYO2 receptor required for vacuole inheritance. Binds simultaneously to MYO2 and to VAC8, a vacuolar membrane protein, forming a transport complex which moves the attached vacuole membrane along actin cables into the bud. Once the vacuole arrives in the bud, VAC17 is degraded, depositing the vacuole in its correct location (423 aa)
Autophagy-related protein and dual specificity member of the E1 family of ubiquitin-activating enzymes; mediates the conjugation of Atg12p with Atg5p and Atg8p with phosphatidylethanolamine, required steps in autophagosome formation; E1-like activating enzyme involved in the 2 ubiquitin- like systems required for cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) and autophagy. Activates ATG12 for its conjugation with ATG5 and ATG8 for its conjugation with phosphatidylethanolamine. Both systems are needed for the ATG8 association to Cvt vesicles and autophagosomes membranes. Autophagy is essential f [...] (630 aa)
Protein ser/thr kinase required for vesicle formation in autophagy and the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; structurally required for phagophore assembly site formation; during autophagy forms a complex with Atg13p and Atg17p; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in the cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) and found to be essential in autophagy, where it is required for the formation of autophagosomes. Involved in the clearance of protein aggregates which cannot be efficiently cleared by the proteasome. Required for selective autophagic degradation of the nucleus (nucl [...] (897 aa)
Phosphoinositide binding protein required for vesicle formation in autophagy and the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; binds both phosphatidylinositol (3,5)-bisphosphate and phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate; WD-40 repeat protein; The PI(3,5)P2 regulatory complex regulates both the synthesis and turnover of phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,5)P2). May negatively regulate FAB1 activity by sequestering or masking VAC7 from FAB1. Necessary for proper vacuole morphology. Plays an important role in osmotically-induced vacuole fragmentation. Required for cytoplasm to [...] (500 aa)
Adapter protein for pexophagy and the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; directs receptor-bound cargo to the phagophore assembly site (PAS) for packaging into vesicles; required for recruiting other proteins to the (PAS); Involved in cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt), pexophagy, mitophagy and nucleophagy. Recruits mitochondria for their selective degradation via autophagy (mitophagy) during starvation, through its interaction with ATG32. Works as scaffold proteins that recruit ATG proteins to the pre-autophagosome (PAS), the site of vesicle/autophagosome formation. Requir [...] (1178 aa)
