IKS1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"IKS1" - Putative serine/threonine kinase 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
IKS1Putative serine/threonine kinase; expression is induced during mild heat stress; deletion mutants are hypersensitive to copper sulphate and resistant to sorbate; interacts with an N-terminal fragment of Sst2p (667 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Calmodulin; Ca++ binding protein that regulates Ca++ independent processes (mitosis, bud growth, actin organization, endocytosis, etc.) and Ca++ dependent processes (stress-activated pathways), targets include Nuf1p, Myo2p and calcineurin; Calmodulin mediates the control of a large number of enzymes, ion channels and other proteins by Ca(2+). Among the enzymes to be stimulated by the calmodulin-Ca(2+) complex are a number of protein kinases and phosphatases. Component of the spindle pole body (SPB) required for the proper execution of spindle pole body (SPB) duplication (147 aa)
Regulatory light chain for the type II myosin Myo1p; binds to an IQ motif of Myo1p, localization to the bud neck depends on Myo1p; involved in the disassembly of the Myo1p ring; Regulatory light chain for the class II conventional myosin MYO1. May play a role in the disassembly of the MYO1 ring at the bud neck at the end of its contraction during cytokinesis (163 aa)
Essential light chain for Myo1p, light chain for Myo2p; stabilizes Myo2p by binding to the neck region; interacts with Myo1p, Iqg1p, and Myo2p to coordinate formation and contraction of the actomyosin ring with targeted membrane deposition; Essential light chain for the class II conventional myosin MYO1. Acts also as light chain for the class V unconventional myosin MYO2 and for IQG1. Involved in the assembly of the contractile actomyosin ring at the bud neck during cytokinesis by recruiting IQG1 to the bud neck. Also required for chitin and MYO2-dependent secretory vesicle deposition [...] (149 aa)
Calcineurin B; the regulatory subunit of calcineurin, a Ca++/calmodulin-regulated type 2B protein phosphatase which regulates Crz1p (a stress-response transcription factor), the other calcineurin subunit is encoded by CNA1 and/or CMP1; Regulatory subunit of calcineurin, a calcium-dependent, calmodulin stimulated protein phosphatase. Confers calcium sensitivity (175 aa)
Calcium-binding component of the spindle pole body (SPB) half-bridge, required for SPB duplication in mitosis and meiosis II; homolog of mammalian centrin; binds multiubiquitinated proteins and is involved in proteasomal protein degradation; Functions as a component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC) and the spindle pole body (SPB) half-bridge. At the SPB, it is recruited by KAR1 and MPS3 to the SPB half-bridge and involved in the initial steps of SPB duplication. It probably plays a similar role in de novo assembly of NPCs at the nuclear envelope. Also involved in connection with the p [...] (161 aa)
N-myristoylated calcium-binding protein that may have a role in intracellular signaling through its regulation of the phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase Pik1p; member of the recoverin/frequenin branch of the EF-hand superfamily; Regulator of phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase PIK1 (190 aa)
Adenylate cyclase, required for cAMP production and cAMP-dependent protein kinase signaling; the cAMP pathway controls a variety of cellular processes, including metabolism, cell cycle, stress response, stationary phase, and sporulation; Plays essential roles in regulation of cellular metabolism by catalyzing the synthesis of a second messenger, cAMP (2026 aa)
Glycogen synthase, similar to Gsy1p; expression induced by glucose limitation, nitrogen starvation, heat shock, and stationary phase; activity regulated by cAMP-dependent, Snf1p and Pho85p kinases as well as by the Gac1p-Glc7p phosphatase; Transfers the glycosyl residue from UDP-Glc to the non- reducing end of alpha-1,4-glucan. Is believed to regulate the synthesis of glycogen (705 aa)
Cyclin, interacts with cyclin-dependent kinase Pho85p; regulates the response to nutrient levels and environmental conditions, including the response to phosphate limitation and stress-dependent calcium signaling; Cyclin partner of the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) PHO85. Negatively regulates the expression of phosphate- starvation-responsive genes under phosphate-rich conditions. The PHO80-PHO85 cyclin-CDK holoenzyme phosphorylates and inactivates the transcription factor PHO4, by preventing its association with the transcription factor PHO2 and the nuclear import receptor PSE1, and b [...] (293 aa)
Glutamine-rich cytoplasmic protein that serves as a scaffold for binding Get4/5p and other proteins required to mediate posttranslational insertion of tail-anchored proteins into the ER membrane; has similarity to human cochaperone SGT; Co-chaperone that binds to the molecular chaperone Hsp70 (SSA1 and SSA2). Regulates Hsp70 ATPase activity (By similarity). Required for recovery from heat shock (346 aa)
