VPS1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"VPS1" - Dynamin-like GTPase required for vacuolar sorting in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

Gene Fusion
VPS1Dynamin-like GTPase required for vacuolar sorting; also involved in actin cytoskeleton organization, endocytosis, late Golgi-retention of some proteins, regulation of peroxisome biogenesis; Essential for protein sorting in meiotic cell division of Saccharomyces cerevisiae; it binds microtubules. Could also be involved in microtubule-associated motility. Necessary for membrane protein retention in a late Golgi compartment. Interacts with the MVP1 protein (704 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Dynamin-related GTPase required for mitochondrial fission and morphology; assembles on the cytoplasmic face of mitochondrial tubules at sites at which division will occur; also participates in endocytosis and regulating peroxisome abundance; Microtubule-associated force-producing protein that participates mitochondrial fission. Fission of mitochondria occurs in many cell types and constitutes an important step in mitochondria morphology, which is balanced between fusion and fission. Functions antagonistically with FZO1 (757 aa)
Protein involved in mitochondrial membrane fission and peroxisome abundance; required for localization of Dnm1p and Mdv1p during mitochondrial division; mediates ethanol-induced apoptosis and ethanol-induced mitochondrial fragmentation; Has a role in mitochondrial fission. Has a role in outer membrane fission but not matrix separation. Required for targeting MDV1 to the mitochondria. Regulates the assembly of DNM1 into punctate structures, in the mitochondrial tubules, promoting mitochondrial membrane constriction and/or division (155 aa)
Adapter protein for pexophagy and the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; directs receptor-bound cargo to the phagophore assembly site (PAS) for packaging into vesicles; required for recruiting other proteins to the (PAS); Involved in cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt), pexophagy, mitophagy and nucleophagy. Recruits mitochondria for their selective degradation via autophagy (mitophagy) during starvation, through its interaction with ATG32. Works as scaffold proteins that recruit ATG proteins to the pre-autophagosome (PAS), the site of vesicle/autophagosome formation. Requir [...] (1178 aa)
Component of both the SWI/SNF and RSC chromatin remodeling complexes; actin-related protein involved in transcriptional regulation; Component of the chromatin structure remodeling complex (RSC), which is involved in transcription regulation and nucleosome positioning. RSC is responsible for the transfer of a histone octamer from a nucleosome core particle to naked DNA. The reaction requires ATP and involves an activated RSC-nucleosome intermediate. Remodeling reaction also involves DNA translocation, DNA twist and conformational change. As a reconfigurer of centromeric and flanking nuc [...] (467 aa)
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; Plays a role in the sorting and targeting of vacuolar proteases (288 aa)
EH domain-containing protein involved in endocytosis, actin cytoskeletal organization and cell wall morphogenesis; forms a complex with Sla1p and Pan1p; Component of the PAN1 actin cytoskeleton-regulatory complex required for the internalization of endosomes during actin-coupled endocytosis. The complex links the site of endocytosis to the cell membrane-associated actin cytoskeleton. Mediates uptake of external molecules and vacuolar degradation of plasma membrane proteins. Plays a role in the proper organization of the cell membrane-associated actin cytoskeleton and promotes its desta [...] (349 aa)
Clathrin heavy chain, subunit of the major coat protein involved in intracellular protein transport and endocytosis; two heavy chains form the clathrin triskelion structural component; the light chain (CLC1) is thought to regulate function; Clathrin is the major protein of the polyhedral coat of coated pits and vesicles. In yeast, it is involved in the retention of proteins in an intracellular membrane compartment, presumably the trans-Golgi (1653 aa)
Polyphosphatidylinositol phosphatase, dephosphorylates multiple phosphatidylinositols; involved in trans Golgi network-to-early endosome pathway; hyperosmotic stress causes translocation to actin patches; contains Sac1 and 5-ptase domains; Dephosphorylates a number of phosphatidylinositols (PIs) like phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(4,5)P2), but also phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns(3)P), phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PtdIns(4)P), and phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,5)P2). Controls the cellular levels and subcellular distribution of phosphatidyl [...] (1107 aa)
ATP-dependent DNA translocase involved in chromatin remodeling; ATPase component that, with Itc1p, forms a complex required for repression of a-specific genes, INO1, and early meiotic genes during mitotic growth; Catalytic component of the ISW2 complex, which acts in remodeling the chromatin by catalyzing an ATP-dependent alteration in the structure of nucleosomal DNA. THe ISW2 complex is involved in coordinating transcriptional repression and in inheritance of telomeric silencing. It is involved in repression of MAT a- specific genes, INO1, and early meiotic genes during mitotic growt [...] (1120 aa)
Member of the imitation-switch (ISWI) class of ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes; ATPase that forms a complex with Ioc2p and Ioc4p to regulate transcription elongation, and a complex with Ioc3p to repress transcription initiation; Catalytic component of ISW1-type complexes, which act by remodeling the chromatin by catalyzing an ATP-dependent alteration in the structure of nucleosomal DNA. They are involved in coordinating transcriptional repression, activation and elongation phases. The ISW1A complex represses gene expression at initiation through specific positioning of a p [...] (1129 aa)
