TOF2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"TOF2" - Protein required for rDNA silencing and mitotic rDNA condensation 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

TOF2Protein required for rDNA silencing and mitotic rDNA condensation; stimulates Cdc14p phosphatase activity and biphasic release to promote rDNA repeat segregation; required for condensin recruitment to the replication fork barrier site (771 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein phosphatase required for mitotic exit; required for rDNA segregation, cytokinesis, meiosis I spindle disassembly, environmental stress response; held in nucleolus by Cdc55p in early meiosis, liberated by FEAR and Mitotic Exit Network in anaphase, enabling it to effect a decrease in CDK/B-cyclin activity and mitotic exit; sequestered in metaphase II, released upon entry into anaphase II; human homolog CDC14A can complement thermosensitivity of yeast cdc14-1 mutant; Protein phosphatase which antagonizes mitotic cyclin- dependent kinase CDC28, the inactivation of which is essentia [...] (551 aa)
Chromatin-associated protein, required for sister chromatid cohesion; interacts with DNA polymerase alpha (Pol1p) and may link DNA synthesis to sister chromatid cohesion; Accessory factor for DNA replication. It plays a role in accurately duplicating the genome in vivo (927 aa)
Conserved NAD+ dependent histone deacetylase of the Sirtuin family involved in regulation of lifespan; plays roles in silencing at HML, HMR, telomeres, and the rDNA locus; negatively regulates initiation of DNA replication; NAD-dependent deacetylase, which participates in a wide range of cellular events including chromosome silencing, chromosome segregation, DNA recombination and the determination of life span. Involved in transcriptional repression of the silent mating-type loci HML and HMR and telomeric silencing via its association with SIR3 and SIR4. Plays a central role in ribosom [...] (562 aa)
Nucleolar protein that forms a complex with Csm1p, and then Mam1p at kinetochores during meiosis I to mediate accurate homolog segregation; required for condensin recruitment to the replication fork barrier site and rDNA repeat segregation; Component of the monopolin complex which promotes monoorientation during meiosis I, required for chromosome segregation during meiosis. Involved in rDNA silencing (347 aa)
Nucleolar protein that binds the rDNA replication fork barrier (RFB) site; required for replication fork blocking, recombinational hotspot activity, condensin recruitment to RFB and rDNA repeat segregation; related to retroviral integrases; Required for replication fork blocking activity at the replication fork barrier (RFB) site in rDNA and for recombination hot-spot (HOT1) activity, regulating the recombination rate and the number of rDNA copies. Binds directly to two separated sequences in the RFB (566 aa)
Core subunit of the RENT complex, which is a complex involved in nucleolar silencing and telophase exit; stimulates transcription by RNA polymerase I and regulates nucleolar structure; Has a role in chromosome maintenance and is involved in mitotic exit. Inhibits the action of CDC14 by sequestering it in the nucleolus. Also binds to RNA polymerase I and stimulates rRNA synthesis. Influences RDNA chromatin by tethering SIR2 to rDNA in the nucleolus (1189 aa)
Nucleolar protein that mediates homolog segregation during meiosis I; forms a complex with Lrs4p and then Mam1p at kinetochores; required for condensin recruitment to the replication fork barrier site and rDNA repeat segregation; Component of the monopolin complex which promotes monoorientation during meiosis I, required for chromosome segregation during meiosis. Plays also a mitotic role in DNA replication (190 aa)
Histone H2B, core histone protein required for chromatin assembly and chromosome function; nearly identical to HTB2; Rad6p-Bre1p-Lge1p mediated ubiquitination regulates transcriptional activation, meiotic DSB formation and H3 methylation; Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-translat [...] (131 aa)
Topoisomerase I, nuclear enzyme that relieves torsional strain in DNA by cleaving and re-sealing the phosphodiester backbone; relaxes both positively and negatively supercoiled DNA; functions in replication, transcription, and recombination; Releases the supercoiling and torsional tension of DNA introduced during the DNA replication and transcription by transiently cleaving and rejoining one strand of the DNA duplex. Introduces a single-strand break via transesterification at a target site in duplex DNA. The scissile phosphodiester is attacked by the catalytic tyrosine of the enzyme, r [...] (769 aa)
Essential kinetochore protein, component of the CBF3 multisubunit complex that binds to the CDEIII region of the centromere; Cbf2p also binds to the CDEII region possibly forming a different multimeric complex, ubiquitinated in vivo; Acts as a component of the centromere DNA-binding protein complex CBF3, which is essential for chromosome segregation and movement of centromeres along microtubules. CBF3 is required for the recruitment of other kinetochore complexes to CEN DNA. It plays a role in the attachment of chromosomes to the spindle and binds selectively to a highly conserved DNA [...] (956 aa)
