YKE4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"YKE4" - Zinc transporter 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

Gene Fusion
YKE4Zinc transporter; localizes to the ER; null mutant is sensitive to calcofluor white, leads to zinc accumulation in cytosol; ortholog of the mouse KE4 and member of the ZIP (ZRT, IRT-like Protein) family; Zinc transporter whose role depends on the zinc status of the cells. It helps to balance zinc levels between the cytosol and the secretory pathway. It transports zinc into the secretory pathway in a zinc-adequate environment and in a high zinc medium. In high zinc medium, transport of zinc into the secretory pathway is a way to eliminate zinc from the cytosol. Under low cytosolic zinc [...] (346 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Member of the cation diffusion facilitator family, localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum and nucleus; mutations affect the cellular distribution of zinc and also confer defects in meiotic recombination between homologous chromatids; Probably act as a zinc ion transporter moving zinc from the nucleus/endoplasmic reticulum to the cytoplasm. Involved in zinc ion homeostasis and cellular distribution (724 aa)
Vacuolar membrane zinc transporter, transports zinc from the cytosol into the vacuole for storage; also has a role in resistance to zinc shock resulting from a sudden influx of zinc into the cytoplasm; Probably responsible for the uptake of zinc and cadmium ions (442 aa)
Vacuolar transporter that mediates zinc transport into the vacuole; overexpression confers resistance to cobalt and rhodium; Probably responsible for the uptake of cobalt ions. It appears to act in a dosage-dependent manner to counteract the adverse effects of cobalt ions on cells. It may participate in the regulation of cobalt levels under normal physiological conditions and may be important in the supply of metal that is required for metalloenzyme or cofactor synthesis. It reduces the toxicity of cobalt and rhodium ions. Other components responsible for cobalt transport exist (439 aa)
Low-affinity zinc transporter of the plasma membrane; transcription is induced under low-zinc conditions by the Zap1p transcription factor; Low-affinity zinc transport protein. Active in zinc- replete cells and is time-, temperature- and concentration- dependent and prefers zinc over other metals as its substrate (422 aa)
High-affinity zinc transporter of the plasma membrane, responsible for the majority of zinc uptake; transcription is induced under low-zinc conditions by the Zap1p transcription factor; High-affinity zinc transport protein (376 aa)
Vacuolar membrane zinc transporter, transports zinc from storage in the vacuole to the cytoplasm when needed; transcription is induced under conditions of zinc deficiency; Transports zinc from storage in the vacuole to the cytoplasm (503 aa)
Cyclin, interacts with cyclin-dependent kinase Pho85p; member of the Pcl1,2-like subfamily, involved in the regulation of polarized growth and morphogenesis and progression through the cell cycle; localizes to sites of polarized cell growth; G1/S-specific cyclin partner of the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) PHO85. Essential for the control of the cell cycle at the G1/S (start) transition. The PCL1-PHO85 cyclin-CDK holoenzyme is involved in phosphorylation of the CDK inhibitor (CKI) SIC1, which is required for its ubiquitination and degradation, releasing repression of b-type cyclins and [...] (279 aa)
Sumoylated protein that localizes to a single spot on the nuclear periphery of mother cells but not daughters; interacts genetically with SMT3; UV-sensitive mutant phenotype and genetic interactions suggest a role in the DNA damage response; Metalloendopeptidase that acts selectively on DNA- binding proteins. DNA is needed to bring the protease and substrates together to enable proteolysis. Involved in the repair of toxic DNA-protein cross-links (DPCs) such as covalently trapped topoisomerase 1 (TOP1) adducts on DNA lesions or DPCs induced by reactive compounds such as formaldehyde. In [...] (269 aa)
Protein component of the large (60S) ribosomal subunit, identical to Rpl23Bp and has similarity to E. coli L14 and rat L23 ribosomal proteins (137 aa)
Imidazoleglycerol-phosphate dehydratase, catalyzes the sixth step in histidine biosynthesis; mutations cause histidine auxotrophy and sensitivity to Cu, Co, and Ni salts; transcription is regulated by general amino acid control via Gcn4p (220 aa)
