ATG36 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ATG36" - Putative protein of unknown function 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
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
ATG36Putative protein of unknown function; mRNA is weakly cell cycle regulated, peaking in G2 phase; YJL185C is a non-essential gene; Required for autophagic breakdown of peroxisomes, called pexophagy, through linking peroxisomes to the autophagy apparatus. Involved in regulation of the glyoxylate cycle (293 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Adapter protein for pexophagy and the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; directs receptor-bound cargo to the phagophore assembly site (PAS) for packaging into vesicles; required for recruiting other proteins to the (PAS); Involved in cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt), pexophagy, mitophagy and nucleophagy. Recruits mitochondria for their selective degradation via autophagy (mitophagy) during starvation, through its interaction with ATG32. Works as scaffold proteins that recruit ATG proteins to the pre-autophagosome (PAS), the site of vesicle/autophagosome formation. Requir [...] (1178 aa)
Component of autophagosomes and Cvt vesicles; undergoes conjugation to phosphatidylethanolamine (PE); Atg8p-PE is anchored to membranes, is involved in phagophore expansion, and may mediate membrane fusion during autophagosome formation; Ubiquitin-like modifier involved in cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) vesicles and autophagosomes formation. With ATG4, mediates the delivery of the vesicles and autophagosomes to the vacuole via the microtubule cytoskeleton. Required for selective autophagic degradation of the nucleus (nucleophagy) as well as for mitophagy which contributes to regu [...] (117 aa)
Mitochondrial-anchored transmembrane receptor that interacts with the autophagy adaptor protein, Atg11p, and is essential for mitophagy, the selective vacuolar degradation of mitochondria in response to starvation; Mitophagy-specific receptor that recruits the autophagic machinery to mitochondria and regulates selective degradation of mitochondria. Mitophagy contributes to regulate mitochondrial quantity and quality by eliminating the mitochondria to a basal level to fulfill cellular energy requirements and preventing excess ROS production. Recruits ATG11 to the surface of mitochondria [...] (529 aa)
Peroxisomal membrane protein (PMP) required for proper localization and stability of PMPs; anchors peroxisome retention factor Inp1p at the peroxisomal membrane; interacts with Pex19p; Involved in peroxisome biosynthesis. May function as a receptor protein. Lack of this protein causes the peroxisomal- deficient phenotype and mislocalization in the cytosol of peroxisomal matrix proteins (441 aa)
Peroxisomal integral membrane protein that regulates peroxisome populations; interacts with Pex11p, Pex25p, and Pex27p to control both constitutive peroxisome division and peroxisome morphology and abundance during peroxisome proliferation; In concert with the three peroxisome divisional factors, PEX11, PEX25 and PEX27, controls peroxisome morphology and abundance under conditions of peroxisome proliferation. Maintains mature peroxisomes in actively dividing cells (144 aa)
Protein kinase involved in regulating diverse events including vesicular trafficking, DNA repair, and chromosome segregation; binds the CTD of RNA pol II; homolog of mammalian casein kinase 1delta (CK1delta); Associated with repair of damaged DNA and meiosis. Phosphorylates serine and threonine. Can use casein as a substrate (494 aa)
Tail-anchored type II integral peroxisomal membrane protein; required for peroxisome biogenesis; cells lacking Pex15p mislocalize peroxisomal matrix proteins to cytosol; overexpression results in impaired peroxisome assembly; Essential for the biogenesis of peroxisomes. Has a role in anchoring PEX6 onto the peroxisomal membrane (383 aa)
AAA-peroxin that heterodimerizes with AAA-peroxin Pex1p and participates in the recycling of peroxisomal signal receptor Pex5p from the peroxisomal membrane to the cystosol; Component of the peroxisomal protein import machinery. Together with PEX1, mediates the ATP-dependent relocation and recycling of the peroxisomal targeting signal-1 (PTS1) import receptor PEX5 from the peroxisomal membrane to the cytosol, where it is then available for another round of protein import into the organelle (1030 aa)
Dynamin-related GTPase required for mitochondrial fission and morphology; assembles on the cytoplasmic face of mitochondrial tubules at sites at which division will occur; also participates in endocytosis and regulating peroxisome abundance; Microtubule-associated force-producing protein that participates mitochondrial fission. Fission of mitochondria occurs in many cell types and constitutes an important step in mitochondria morphology, which is balanced between fusion and fission. Functions antagonistically with FZO1 (757 aa)
Dynamin-like GTPase required for vacuolar sorting; also involved in actin cytoskeleton organization, endocytosis, late Golgi-retention of some proteins, regulation of peroxisome biogenesis; Essential for protein sorting in meiotic cell division of Saccharomyces cerevisiae; it binds microtubules. Could also be involved in microtubule-associated motility. Necessary for membrane protein retention in a late Golgi compartment. Interacts with the MVP1 protein (704 aa)
