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:
a 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
PPX1Exopolyphosphatase; hydrolyzes inorganic polyphosphate (poly P) into Pi residues; located in the cytosol, plasma membrane, and mitochondrial matrix; Belongs to the PPase class C family. (397 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Endopolyphosphatase; Dual endo- and exopolyphosphatase with a role in phosphate metabolism; acts as both an endopolyphosphatase cleaving long chains of polyphosphate distributively to generate shorter polymer chains and as an exopolyphosphatase catalyzing the hydrolysis of terminal phosphate from polyphosphate; localizes to the vacuole, nucleus and cytosol; functions as a homodimer; relocalizes from vacuole to cytoplasm upon DNA replication stress.
Putative metallophosphoesterase YNL217W; Putative protein of unknown function; weak sequence similarity to bis (5'-nucleotidyl)-tetraphosphatases; (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the vacuole; null mutant is highly sensitive to azaserine and resistant to sodium-O-vandate.
Diphosphoinositol polyphosphate phosphohydrolase DDP1; Polyphosphate phosphatase; hydrolyzes diphosphorylated inositol polyphosphates and diadenosine polyphosphates; high specificity for diadenosine hexa- and pentaphosphates; contains endopolyphosphatase activity with a high affinity for polyphosphates, an activity also observed for its human DIPP homologs; possesses mRNA decapping activity; nudix hydrolase family member; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress.
Vacuolar transporter chaperone 4; Vacuolar membrane polyphosphate polymerase; subunit of the vacuolar transporter chaperone (VTC) complex involved in synthesis and transfer of polyP to the vacuole; regulates membrane trafficking; role in non-autophagic vacuolar fusion; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress.
Cytoplasmic inorganic pyrophosphatase (PPase); homodimer that catalyzes the rapid exchange of oxygens from Pi with water, highly expressed and essential for viability, active-site residues show identity to those from E. coli PPase.
Regulatory subunit of the vacuolar transporter chaperone (VTC) complex; VTC complex is involved in membrane trafficking, vacuolar polyphosphate accumulation, microautophagy and non-autophagic vacuolar fusion; also has mRNA binding activity; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress.
Mitochondrial inorganic pyrophosphatase; required for mitochondrial function and possibly involved in energy generation from inorganic pyrophosphate; human ortholog, PPA2, functionally complements the null mutant; mutations in human PPA2 cause a mitochondrial disease resulting in sudden unexpected cardiac arrest in infants; Belongs to the PPase family.
Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase; catalyzes the formation of AMP from adenine and 5-phosphoribosylpyrophosphate; involved in the salvage pathway of purine nucleotide biosynthesis; APT1 has a paralog, APT2, that arose from the whole genome duplication.
Potential adenine phosphoribosyltransferase; encodes a protein with similarity to adenine phosphoribosyltransferase, but artificially expressed protein exhibits no enzymatic activity; APT2 has a paralog, APT1, that arose from the whole genome duplication.
Phosphate system positive regulatory protein PHO81; Cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor; regulates Pho80p-Pho85p and Pcl7p-Pho85p cyclin-CDK complexes in response to phosphate levels; inhibitory activity for Pho80p-Pho85p requires myo-D-inositol heptakisphosphate (IP7) generated by Vip1p; relative distribution to the nucleus increases upon DNA replication stress.
