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

Gene Fusion
HOP1Meiosis-specific protein required for chromosome synapsis; displays Red1p dependent localization to the unsynapsed axial-lateral elements of the synaptonemal complex; required for chiasma formation; in vitro, displays the ability to promote intra- and intermolecular synapsis between double-stranded DNA molecules and to fold DNA into rigid protein-DNA filaments (605 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein component of the synaptonemal complex axial elements; involved in chromosome segregation during the first meiotic division; critical for coupling checkpoint signaling to SC formation; promotes interhomolog recombination by phosphorylating Hop1p; also interacts with Mec3p and Ddc1p
Meiosis-specific serine/threonine protein kinase; functions in meiotic checkpoint, promotes recombination between homologous chromosomes by suppressing double strand break repair between sister chromatids; stabilizes Hop1-Thr318 phosphorylation to promote interhomolog recombination and checkpoint responses during meiosis
Meiotic recombination protein DMC1; Meiosis-specific recombinase required for double-strand break repair; also required for pairing between homologous chromosomes; required for the normal morphogenesis of synaptonemal complex; homolog of Rad51p and the bacterial RecA protein; binds ssDNA and dsDNA, forms helical filaments; stimulated by Rdh54p; Belongs to the RecA family. DMC1 subfamily
Pachytene checkpoint protein 2; Hexameric ring ATPase that remodels chromosome axis protein Hop1p; nucleolar component of the pachytene checkpoint, which prevents chromosome segregation when recombination and chromosome synapsis are defective; also represses meiotic interhomolog recombination in rDNA; required for meiotic double-stranded break formation
Meiosis-specific protein that initiates meiotic recombination; initiates meiotic recombination by catalyzing the formation of double-strand breaks in DNA via a transesterification reaction; required for homologous chromosome pairing and synaptonemal complex formation
Meiotic recombination protein REC8; Meiosis-specific component of the sister chromatid cohesion complex; alpha-kleisin family member that maintains cohesion between sister chromatids during meiosis I; maintains cohesion between centromeres of sister chromatids until meiosis II; independent of its role in sister chromatid cohesion, Rec8p promotes allelic collisions and prevents nonspecific chromosome interactions; homolog of S. pombe Rec8p
Sporulation-specific protein 22; Meiosis-specific protein essential for chromosome synapsis; involved in completion of nuclear divisions during meiosis; induced early in meiosis
26S proteasome regulatory subunit, ATPase 3, interacting protein; Homologous-pairing protein 2; Meiosis-specific protein that localizes to chromosomes; prevents synapsis between nonhomologous chromosomes and ensures synapsis between homologs; complexes with Mnd1p to promote homolog pairing and meiotic double-strand break repair; heterodimer of Hop2p-Mnd1p stimulates the Dmc1p-mediated strand invasion
Protein required for recombination and meiotic nuclear division; forms a complex with Hop2p, which is involved in chromosome pairing and repair of meiotic double-strand breaks
Transverse filament protein of the synaptonemal complex; required for normal levels of meiotic recombination and pairing between homologous chromosome during meiosis; required for meiotic recombination between non-allelc sites; potential Cdc28p substrate
