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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
MPS3Spindle pole body assembly component MPS3; Nuclear envelope protein; required for SPB insertion, SPB duplication, Kar5p localization near the SPB and nuclear fusion; interacts with Mps2p to tether half-bridge to core SPB; N-terminal acetylation by Eco1p regulates its role in nuclear organization; localizes to the SPB half bridge and telomeres during meiosis; required with Ndj1p and Csm4p for meiotic bouquet formation and telomere-led rapid prophase movement; member of the SUN protein family (Sad1-UNC-84 homology) (682 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Non-disjunction protein 1; Protein that regulates meiotic SPB cohesion and telomere clustering; localizes to both spindle pole bodies (SPBs) and telomeres; required for bouquet formation, effective homolog pairing, ordered cross-over distribution, sister chromatid cohesion at meiotic telomeres, chromosomal segregation and telomere-led rapid prophase movement
Monopolar spindle protein 2; Essential membrane protein localized at nuclear envelope and SPBs; required for insertion of the newly duplicated spindle pole body into the nuclear envelope; potentially phosphorylated by Cdc28p; MPS2 has a paralog, CSM4, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Histone variant H2AZ; exchanged for histone H2A in nucleosomes by the SWR1 complex; involved in transcriptional regulation through prevention of the spread of silent heterochromatin; Htz1p-containing nucleosomes facilitate RNA Pol II passage by affecting correct assembly and modification status of RNA Pol II elongation complexes and by favoring efficient nucleosome remodeling
Protein required for accurate chromosome segregation during meiosis; involved in meiotic telomere clustering (bouquet formation) and telomere-led rapid prophase movements; functions with meiosis-specific telomere-binding protein Ndj1p; CSM4 has a paralog, MPS2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Inner nuclear membrane protein; highly enriched at telomeres and subtelomeric regions; functions in regulation of subtelomeric genes and is linked to TREX (transcription export) factors; SRC1 produces 2 splice variant proteins with different functions; alternative splicing of SRC1 pre-mRNA is promoted by Hub1p; mutant has aneuploidy tolerance; SEC1 has a paralog, HEH2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Nucleoporin POM152; Glycoprotein subunit of transmembrane ring of nuclear pore complex; contributes to nucleocytoplasmic transport, nuclear pore complex (NPC) biogenesis and spindle pole body duplication; homologous to human NUP210
Regulatory protein SIR4; SIR protein involved in assembly of silent chromatin domains; silent information regulator (SIR) along with SIR2 and SIR3; involved in assembly of silent chromatin domains at telomeres and the silent mating-type loci; some alleles of SIR4 prolong lifespan; required for telomere hypercluster formation in quiescent yeast cells
Cell division control protein KAR1; Protein involved in karyogamy and spindle pole body duplication; involved in karyogamy during mating; involved in spindle pole body duplication during mitosis; localizes to the half-bridge of the spindle pole body; interacts with Spc72p during karyogamy; also interacts with Cdc31p; essential gene
Central plaque component of spindle pole body (SPB); involved in SPB duplication, may facilitate attachment of the SPB to the nuclear membrane; Belongs to the SPC42 family
NAP1-binding protein; Spindle pole body (SPB) component; required for the insertion of the duplication plaque into the nuclear membrane during SPB duplication; essential for bipolar spindle formation; component of the Mps2p-Bbp1p complex; NBP1 has a paralog, YPR174C, that arose from the whole genome duplication
