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
VPS55Vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 55; Late endosomal protein involved in late endosome to vacuole transport; functional homolog of human obesity receptor gene-related protein (OB-RGRP) (140 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Vacuolar membrane protein of unknown function; involved in vacuolar protein sorting; also detected in the mitochondria
V-type proton ATPase subunit a, Golgi isoform; Subunit a of the vacuolar-ATPase V0 domain; one of two isoforms (Stv1p and Vph1p); Stv1p is located in V-ATPase complexes of the Golgi and endosomes while Vph1p is located in V-ATPase complexes of the vacuole
Syntaxin PEP12; Target membrane receptor (t-SNARE); for vesicular intermediates traveling between the Golgi apparatus and the vacuole; controls entry of biosynthetic, endocytic, and retrograde traffic into the prevacuolar compartment; syntaxin
Chromatin modification-related protein EAF3; Component of the Rpd3S histone deacetylase complex; Esa1p-associated factor, nonessential component of the NuA4 acetyltransferase complex, homologous to Drosophila dosage compensation protein MSL3; plays a role in regulating Ty1 transposition
Squalene epoxidase; catalyzes the epoxidation of squalene to 2,3-oxidosqualene; plays an essential role in the ergosterol-biosynthesis pathway and is the specific target of the antifungal drug terbinafine; human SQLE functionally complements the lethality of the erg1 null mutation
Uncharacterized oxidoreductase TDA5; Putative protein of unknown function; detected in highly purified mitochondria in high-throughput studies; proposed to be involved in resistance to mechlorethamine and streptozotocin; null mutant sensitive to expression of top1-T722A allele; Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family
Uncharacterized protein YCR101C; Putative protein of unknown function; localizes to the membrane fraction; YCR101C is not an essential gene
Uncharacterized protein YDR132C; Protein of unknown function; protein increases in abundance and relative distribution to the nucleus increases upon DNA replication stress; YDR132C has a paralog, YLR108C, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Ankyrin repeat-containing protein YGL242C; Protein of unknown function; N-terminally propionylated in vivo; deletion mutant is viable
Putative lipase; involved in lipid metabolism; not an essential gene; YDL109C has a paralog, ROG1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
