STRINGSTRING
OPI3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"OPI3" - Phospholipid methyltransferase (methylene-fatty-acyl-phospholipid synthase), catalyzes the last two steps in phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

OPI3Phospholipid methyltransferase (methylene-fatty-acyl-phospholipid synthase), catalyzes the last two steps in phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis; Catalyzes three sequential methylation reactions of phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) by AdoMet, thereby producing phosphatidylcholine (PC) (206 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CHO2
Phosphatidylethanolamine methyltransferase (PEMT), catalyzes the first step in the conversion of phosphatidylethanolamine to phosphatidylcholine during the methylation pathway of phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis; Catalyzes the first step in the conversion of phosphatidylethanolamine to phosphatidylcholine during the methylation pathway of phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis. Preferentially converts di-C16-1 substrates (869 aa)
     
  0.997
CPT1
Cholinephosphotransferase, required for phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis and for inositol-dependent regulation of EPT1 transcription; Catalyzes the final step in the CDP-choline route leading to phosphatidylcholin (PC). Preferentially uses CDP- monomethylethanolamine as aminoalcohol substrate. Shows highest activity toward di- and mono-unsaturated diacylglycerol species as lipid substrates. The CDP-choline pathway only contributes to net PC synthesis if exogenous choline is present. In its absence, this pathway recycles choline from PC turnover and may contribute to maintaining the pro [...] (393 aa)

ALE1
Broad-specificity lysophospholipid acyltransferase, part of MBOAT family of membrane-bound O-acyltransferases; key component of Lands cycle; may have role in fatty acid exchange at sn-2 position of mature glycerophospholipids; Membrane-bound O-acyltransferase that mediates the incorporation of unsaturated acyl chains into the sn-2 position of phospholipids. Preferentially acylates lysophosphocholine, but also lysophosphoethanolamine and lysophosphatidylglycerol (619 aa)
       
  0.975
SPO14
Phospholipase D; catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine, producing choline and phosphatidic acid; involved in Sec14p-independent secretion; required for meiosis and spore formation; differently regulated in secretion and meiosis; participat /.../transcription initiation and/or early elongation of specific genes; interacts with "foot domain" of RNA polymerase II; deletion results in abnormal CTD-Ser5 phosphorylation of RNA polymerase II at specific promoter regions; Required for meiosis and spore formation. Seems to be involved in the coordinate induction of late meiotic events [...] (1683 aa)
       
  0.962
CHO1
Phosphatidylserine synthase, functions in phospholipid biosynthesis; catalyzes the reaction CDP-diaclyglycerol + L-serine = CMP + L-1-phosphatidylserine, transcriptionally repressed by myo-inositol and choline (276 aa)
     
   
  0.959
PSD1
Phosphatidylserine decarboxylase of the mitochondrial inner membrane, converts phosphatidylserine to phosphatidylethanolamine; Catalyzes the formation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PtdEtn) from phosphatidylserine (PtdSer). Plays a central role in phospholipid metabolism and in the interorganelle trafficking of phosphatidylserine (PubMed-8227017, PubMed-8407984, PubMed-17976194, PubMed-23124206, PubMed-25829489). Phosphatidylethanolamine formed in the mitochondria is exported to other membranes to fullfill their requirements for PtdEtn (PubMed-8530379, PubMed-11294902). Required for norm [...] (500 aa)

TGL4
Multifunctional triacylglycerol lipase, steryl ester hydrolase, and Ca2+-independent phospholipase A2; catalyzes acyl-CoA dependent acylation of LPA to PA; required with Tgl3p for timely bud formation; phosphorylated and activated by Cdc28p; Releases specific fatty acids from neutral lipid triacylglycerols (TAG) thereby supplying fatty acids to a general acylation process. May have a specific role in sporulation (910 aa)

INO1
Inositol-3-phosphate synthase, involved in synthesis of inositol phosphates and inositol-containing phospholipids; transcription is coregulated with other phospholipid biosynthetic genes by Ino2p and Ino4p, which bind the UASINO DNA element (533 aa)
     
   
  0.881
INO2
Component of the heteromeric Ino2p/Ino4p basic helix-loop-helix transcription activator that binds inositol/choline-responsive elements (ICREs), required for derepression of phospholipid biosynthetic genes in response to inositol depletion; Positive regulatory factor required for depression of the coregulated phospholipid biosynthetic enzymes. Also involved in the expression of ITR1 (304 aa)

INO4
Transcription factor required for derepression of inositol-choline-regulated genes involved in phospholipid synthesis; forms a complex, with Ino2p, that binds the inositol-choline-responsive element through a basic helix-loop-helix domain; Transcriptional activator of phospholipid synthetic genes (such as INO1, CHO1/PSS, CHO2/PEM1, OPI3/PEM2, etc.) (151 aa)
