STRINGSTRING
STE3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"STE3" - Receptor for a factor pheromone, couples to MAP kinase cascade to mediate pheromone response 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

STE3Receptor for a factor pheromone, couples to MAP kinase cascade to mediate pheromone response; transcribed in alpha cells and required for mating by alpha cells, ligand bound receptors endocytosed and recycled to the plasma membrane; GPCR; Receptor for the peptide pheromone a factor (470 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MF(ALPHA)1
Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)2, although MF(ALPHA)1 produces most alpha-factor; The active factor is excreted into the culture medium by haploid cells of the alpha mating type and acts on cells of the opposite mating type (type A). It mediates the conjugation process between the two types by inhibiting the initiation of DNA synthesis in type a cells and synchronizing them with type alpha (165 aa)
     
   
  0.995
GPA1
GTP-binding alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein that couples to pheromone receptors; negatively regulates the mating pathway by sequestering G(beta)gamma and by triggering an adaptive response; activates Vps34p at the endosome; Alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide- binding protein (G protein) that mediates mating pheromone signal transduction. Binding of alpha-factor or a-factor to its cognate transmembrane receptor STE2 and STE3, respectively, allows the receptor to serve as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) on GPA1. The exchange of GDP for GTP on [...] (472 aa)
       
  0.989
STE2
Receptor for alpha-factor pheromone; seven transmembrane-domain GPCR that interacts with both pheromone and a heterotrimeric G protein to initiate the signaling response that leads to mating between haploid a and alpha cells; Receptor for the peptide pheromone alpha factor, the mating factor of yeast (431 aa)
       
 
  0.968
MFA2
Mating pheromone a-factor, made by a cells; interacts with alpha cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; biogenesis involves C-terminal modification, N-terminal proteolysis, and export; also encoded by MFA1; The active factor is excreted into the culture medium by haploid cells of the A mating type and acts on cells of the opposite mating type (type alpha). It mediates the conjugation process between the two types by inhibiting the initiation of DNA synthesis in type alpha cells and synchronizing them with type A (38 aa)
         
  0.965
MF(ALPHA)2
Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)1, which is more highly expressed than MF(ALPHA)2; The active factor is excreted into the culture medium by haploid cells of the alpha mating type and acts on cells of the opposite mating type (type A). It mediates the conjugation process between the two types by inhibiting the initiation of DNA synthesis in type a cells and synchronizing them with type alpha (120 aa)

SAG1
Alpha-agglutinin of alpha-cells, binds to Aga1p during agglutination, N-terminal half is homologous to the immunoglobulin superfamily and contains binding site for a-agglutinin, C-terminal half is highly glycosylated and contains GPI anchor; Cell surface glycoprotein promoting cell-cell contact to facilitate mating. Saccharomyces cerevisiae A and alpha cells express the complementary cell surface glycoproteins A-agglutinin and alpha-, respectively, which interact with one another to promote cellular aggregation during mating (650 aa)
     
   
  0.947
HMLALPHA1
Silenced copy of ALPHA1 at HML, encoding a transcriptional coactivator involved in the regulation of mating-type alpha-specific gene expression; Mating type proteins are sequence specific DNA-binding proteins that act as master switches in yeast differentiation by controlling gene expression in a cell type-specific fashion. Silenced copy of ALPHA1 at HML (175 aa)
     
   
  0.944
STE4
G protein beta subunit, forms a dimer with Ste18p to activate the mating signaling pathway, forms a heterotrimer with Gpa1p and Ste18p to dampen signaling; may recruit Rho1p to the polarized growth site during mating; contains WD40 repeats; Implicated in the a- and alpha-factor response pathway. The beta and gamma chains of the putative yeast mating response pathway G protein play a positive role in initiation of the mating response. The beta and gamma chains are required for the GTPase activity, for replacement of GDP by GTP, and for G protein- effector interaction (423 aa)

MFA1
Mating pheromone a-factor, made by a cells; interacts with alpha cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; biogenesis involves C-terminal modification, N-terminal proteolysis, and export; also encoded by MFA2; The active factor is excreted into the culture medium by haploid cells of the A mating type and acts on cells of the opposite mating type (type alpha). It mediates the conjugation process between the two types by inhibiting the initiation of DNA synthesis in type alpha cells and synchronizing them with type A (36 aa)

AFB1
Putative protein of unknown function; localizes to the cell wall; predicted to be a GPI-attached protein; upregulated by Mcm1p-Alpha1p transcription factor; partially overlaps the dubious ORF YLR041W; YLR040C is not essential (224 aa)
