STRINGSTRING
MCD4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MCD4" - Protein involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol 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

MCD4Protein involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor synthesis; multimembrane-spanning protein that localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum; highly conserved among eukaryotes; Ethanolamine phosphate transferase involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchor biosynthesis. Transfers ethanolamine phosphate to the first alpha-1,4-linked mannose of the glycosylphosphatidylinositol precursor of GPI-anchor. Ethanolamine phosphate on the alpha-1,4-linked mannose is essential for further mannosylation by GPI10 and is necessary for an efficient recognition of GPI lipids and GPI proteins [...] (919 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GPI14
Glycosylphosphatidylinositol-alpha 1,4 mannosyltransferase I, involved in GPI anchor biosynthesis, requires Pbn1p for function; homolog of mammalian PIG-M; Mannosyltransferase involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchor biosynthesis. Transfers the first alpha-1,4-mannose to GlcN-acyl-PI during GPI precursor assembly. Required for cell wall integrity (403 aa)

GPI18
Functional ortholog of human PIG-V, which is a mannosyltransferase that transfers the second mannose in glycosylphosphatidylinositol biosynthesis; the authentic, non-tagged protein was localized to mitochondria; Mannosyltransferase involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchor biosynthesis.

Essential component of glycosylphosphatidylinositol-mannosyltransferase I, required for the autocatalytic post-translational processing of the protease B precursor Prb1p, localizes to ER in lumenal orientation; homolog of mammalian PIG-X; Required for proper folding and/or the stability of a subset of proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum. Aids the autocatalytic processing of PRB1. Component of glycosylphosphatidylinositol-mannosyltransferase 1 which transfers the first of the 4 mannoses in the GPI-anchor precursors during GPI-anchor biosynthesis. Probably acts by stabilizing the manno [...] (416 aa)

GPI13
ER membrane localized phosphoryltransferase; adds phosphoethanolamine onto the third mannose residue of the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor precursor; similar to human PIG-O protein; Involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchor biosynthesis. Transfers ethanolamine phosphate to the GPI third mannose which links the GPI-anchor to the C-terminus of the proteins by an amide bond. Involved in cell wall biosynthesis (1017 aa)

GPI11
ER membrane protein involved in a late step of GPI anchor assembly; involved in the addition of phosphoethanolamine to the multiply mannosylated glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) intermediate; human PIG-Fp is a functional homolog; Acts in the GPI biosynthetic pathway between GlcNAc-PI synthesis and GPI transfer to protein.
