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
CYT2Cytochrome c1 heme lyase; involved in maturation of cytochrome c1, which is a subunit of the mitochondrial ubiquinol-cytochrome-c reductase; links heme covalently to apocytochrome c1; human homolog HCCS can complement yeast cyt2 null mutant (224 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protoheme IX farnesyltransferase, mitochondrial; Heme A:farnesyltransferase; catalyzes first step in conversion of protoheme to heme A prosthetic group required for cytochrome c oxidase activity; human ortholog COX10 can complement yeast cox10 null mutant; human ortholog COX10 is associated with mitochondrial disorders
Ubiquinol--cytochrome-c reductase catalytic subunit cyt1; Cytochrome c1, heme protein, mitochondrial; Cytochrome c1; component of the mitochondrial respiratory chain; expression is regulated by the heme-activated, glucose-repressed Hap2p/3p/4p/5p CCAAT-binding complex
Essential component of the TIM23 complex; involved in protein import into mitochondrial matrix and inner membrane; with Tim17p, contributes to architecture and function of the import channel; TIM23 complex is short for the translocase of the inner mitochondrial membrane
Ferrochelatase; a mitochondrial inner membrane protein, catalyzes insertion of ferrous iron into protoporphyrin IX, the eighth and final step in the heme biosynthetic pathway; human homolog FECH can complement yeast mutant and allow growth of haploid null after sporulation of a heterozygous diploid
Cytochrome c heme lyase (holocytochrome c synthase); attaches heme to apo-cytochrome c (Cyc1p or Cyc7p) in mitochondrial intermembrane space; human homolog HCCS implicated in microphthalmia with linear skin defects (MLS), and can complement yeast null mutant
Cytochrome c, isoform 1; also known as iso-1-cytochrome c; electron carrier of mitochondrial intermembrane space that transfers electrons from ubiquinone-cytochrome c oxidoreductase to cytochrome c oxidase during cellular respiration; CYC1 has a paralog, CYC7, that arose from the whole genome duplication; human homolog CYC1 can complement yeast null mutant; mutations in human CYC1 cause insulin-responsive hyperglycemia
Cytochrome c isoform 2, expressed under hypoxic conditions; also known as iso-2-cytochrome c; electron carrier of the mitochondrial intermembrane space that transfers electrons from ubiquinone-cytochrome c oxidoreductase to cytochrome c oxidase during cellular respiration; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress; CYC7 has a paralog, CYC1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Mitochondrial peripheral inner membrane protein; contains a FAD cofactor in a domain exposed in the intermembrane space; exhibits redox activity in vitro; likely participates in ligation of heme to acytochromes c and c1 (Cyc1p and Cyt1p)
Mitochondrial chaperone BCS1; Protein translocase and chaperone required for Complex III assembly; member of the AAA ATPase family; forms a homo-oligomeric complex in the mitochondrial inner membrane that translocates the C-terminal domain of Rip1p from the matrix across the inner membrane and delivers it to an assembly intermediate of respiratory Complex III; also required for assembly of the Qcr10p subunit; mutation is functionally complemented by human homolog BCS1L, linked to neonatal diseases
Mitochondrial protein required for assembly of cytochrome bc1 complex; forms a complex with Cbp6p that binds to mt ribosomes near the polypeptide tunnel exit and promotes efficient translation of the COB mRNA; Cbp3p-Cbp6p complex also interacts with newly synthesized cytochrome b (Cobp) and Cbp4p to promote assembly of Cobp into the cytochrome bc1 complex; Cbp3p-Cbp6p complex is sequestered if assembly of Complex III is blocked, downregulating COB mRNA translation
