HEL1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"HEL1" - Putative protein of unknown function 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
HEL1Putative protein of unknown function; contains a RING finger motif; Probable ubiquitin-protein ligase involved in the degradation-related ubiquitination of histones. Contributes to the post-translational regulation of histone protein levels by polyubiquitination of excess histones for subsequent degradation (551 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2), mediates degradation of abnormal or excess proteins, including calmodulin and histone H3; interacts with many SCF ubiquitin protein ligases; component of the cellular stress response; Catalyzes the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to other proteins. Mediates the selective degradation of short-lived and abnormal proteins. Mediates ubiquitination of PEX5 (148 aa)
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme involved in the error-free DNA postreplication repair pathway; interacts with Mms2p to assemble ubiquitin chains at the Ub Lys-63 residue; DNA damage triggers redistribution from the cytoplasm to the nucleus; Has a role in the DNA error-free postreplication repair (PRR) pathway. The UBC13/MMS2 heterodimer catalyzes the synthesis of non-canonical poly-ubiquitin chains that are linked through ’Lys-63’ (153 aa)
Ubiquitin, becomes conjugated to proteins, marking them for selective degradation via the ubiquitin-26S proteasome system; essential for the cellular stress response; encoded as a polyubiquitin precursor comprised of 5 head-to-tail repeats; Ubiquitin exists either covalently attached to another protein, or free (unanchored). When covalently bound, it is conjugated to target proteins via an isopeptide bond either as a monomer (monoubiquitin), a polymer linked via different Lys residues of the ubiquitin (polyubiquitin chains) or a linear polymer linked via the initiator Met of the ubiqui [...] (381 aa)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) involved in signal transduction pathways that control filamentous growth and pheromone response; the KSS1 gene is nonfunctional in S288C strains and functional in W303 strains; Together with closely related FUS3, KSS1 is the final kinase in the signal transduction cascade regulating activation/repression of the mating and filamentation pathways, induced by pheromone and nitrogen/carbon limitation, respectively. Phosphorylated KSS1 activates both pathways, whereas activated FUS3 activates the mating but suppresses the filamentation pathway. KSS1 a [...] (368 aa)
Mitogen-activated serine/threonine protein kinase involved in mating; phosphoactivated by Ste7p; substrates include Ste12p, Far1p, Bni1p, Sst2p; inhibits invasive growth during mating by phosphorylating Tec1p, promoting its degradation; Together with closely related KSS1, FUS3 is the final kinase in the signal transduction cascade regulating activation/repression of the mating and filamentation pathways, induced by pheromone and nitrogen/carbon limitation, respectively. Phosphorylated FUS3 activates the mating but suppresses the filamentation pathway, whereas activated KSS1 activates b [...] (353 aa)
Cytoplasmic mRNA cap binding protein and translation initiation factor eIF4E; the eIF4E-cap complex is responsible for mediating cap-dependent mRNA translation via interactions with translation initiation factor eIF4G (Tif4631p or Tif4632p); Recognizes and binds the 7-methylguanosine-containing mRNA cap during an early step in the initiation of protein synthesis and facilitates ribosome binding by inducing the unwinding of the mRNAs secondary structures (213 aa)
Ubiquitin activating enzyme (E1), involved in ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation and essential for viability; Catalyzes the first step in ubiquitin conjugation to mark cellular proteins for degradation through the ubiquitin- proteasome system. Activates ubiquitin by first adenylating its C- terminal glycine residue with ATP, and thereafter linking this residue to the side chain of a cysteine residue in E1, yielding a ubiquitin-E1 thioester and free AMP (1024 aa)
Nucleolar protein required for maturation of 18S rRNA, member of the eIF4A subfamily of DEAD-box ATP-dependent RNA helicases; ATP-dependent RNA helicase involved in 40S ribosomal subunit biogenesis. Required for the processing and cleavage of 35S pre-rRNA at sites A0, A1, and A2, leading to mature 18S rRNA (399 aa)
Type 2C protein phosphatase (PP2C); dephosphorylates Hog1p to limit maximal osmostress induced kinase activity; dephosphorylates Ire1p to downregulate the unfolded protein response; dephosphorylates Cdc28p; inactivates the DNA damage checkpoint; Responsible, together with PTC3, for the dephosphorylation of the cyclin-dependent protein kinase CDC28 (464 aa)
Type 2C protein phosphatase (PP2C); dephosphorylates Hog1p (see also Ptc2p) to limit maximal kinase activity induced by osmotic stress; dephosphorylates T169 phosphorylated Cdc28p (see also Ptc2p); role in DNA damage checkpoint inactivation; Responsible, together with PTC2, for the dephosphorylation of the cyclin-dependent protein kinase CDC28 (468 aa)
