MSA2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MSA2" - Putative transcriptional activator 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
MSA2Putative transcriptional activator; interacts with G1-specific transcription factor MBF and G1-specific promoters; MSA2 has a paralog, MSA1, that arose from the whole genome duplication (363 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Subunit of the origin recognition complex, which directs DNA replication by binding to replication origins and is also involved in transcriptional silencing; Component of the origin recognition complex (ORC) that binds origins of replication. It has a role in both chromosomal replication and mating type transcriptional silencing. Binds to the ARS consensus sequence (ACS) of origins of replication (616 aa)
DNA binding component of the SBF complex (Swi4p-Swi6p), a transcriptional activator that in concert with MBF (Mbp1-Swi6p) regulates late G1-specific transcription of targets including cyclins and genes required for DNA synthesis and repair; Part of a complex involved in cell-cycle-dependent transcription. SWI4 and SWI6 are required for formation of the cell-cycle box factor-DNA complex. The repeated element in the upstream region of HO (5’-CACGAAAA-3’) is called the cell cycle box (CCB) (1093 aa)
Activator of G1-specific transcription factors, MBF and SBF; involved in regulation of the timing of G1-specific gene transcription and cell cycle initiation; localization is cell-cycle dependent and regulated by Cdc28p phosphorylation; Activator of G1-specific transcription factors, MBF and SBF. Promotes both the timing of G1-specific gene transcription and cell cycle initiation. Associates with SBF- and MBF-regulated target promoters and this binding is maximal during the G1 phase, prior to maximum budding. Affects cell cycle initiation by advancing the timing of transcription of G1- [...] (629 aa)
Transcription cofactor, forms complexes with Swi4p and Mbp1p to regulate transcription at the G1/S transition; involved in meiotic gene expression; cell wall stress induces phosphorylation by Mpk1p, which regulates Swi6p localization; Part of a complex involved in cell-cycle-dependent transcription. SWI4 and SWI6 are required for formation of the cell-cycle box factor-DNA complex. The repeated element in the upstream region of HO (5’-CACGAAAA-3’) is called the cell cycle box (CCB) (803 aa)
GTPase activating factor for Rsr1p/Bud1p required for both axial and bipolar budding patterns; mutants exhibit random budding in all cell types; Stimulates the GTPase activity of BUD1/RSR1. Participates in the regulation of bud-site selection (1104 aa)
Regulatory subunit of Cdc7p-Dbf4p kinase complex, required for Cdc7p kinase activity and initiation of DNA replication; phosphorylates the Mcm2-7 family of proteins; cell cycle regulated; Regulatory subunit of the CDC7-DBF4 kinase, also called DBF4-dependent kinase (DDK), which is involved in cell cycle regulation of premitotic and premeiotic chromosome replication and in chromosome segregation. DDK plays an essential role in initiating DNA replication at replication origins by phosphorylating the MCM2 and MCM4 subunits of the MCM2-7 helicase complex. DBF4 recruits the catalytic subuni [...] (704 aa)
Transcription factor involved in regulation of cell cycle progression from G1 to S phase, forms a complex with Swi6p that binds to MluI cell cycle box regulatory element in promoters of DNA synthesis genes; Binds to MCB elements (Mlu I cell cycle box) found in the promoter of most DNA synthesis genes. Transcriptional activation by MBF has an important role in the transition from G1 to S phase. It may have a dual role in that it behaves as an activator of transcription at the G1-S boundary and as a repressor during other stages of the cell cycle (833 aa)
Homeodomain-containing transcriptional repressor, binds to Mcm1p and to early cell cycle boxes (ECBs) in the promoters of cell cycle-regulated genes expressed in M/G1 phase; expression is cell cycle-regulated; potential Cdc28p substrate; Transcriptional repressor required to restrict transcription of ECB-dependent genes to the G1/M phase by repressing their transcription during the interval from late G1 to M phases. Genes that contain a ECB (early cell box) element in their transcription regulatory region are transcribed only during G1/M phases. In vitro, is capable of binding to the D [...] (385 aa)
JmjC domain family histone demethylase specific for H3-K36, similar to proteins found in human, mouse, drosophila, X. laevis, C. elegans, and S. pombe; Histone demethylase that specifically demethylates ’Lys- 36’ of histone H3, thereby playing a central role in histone code. Does not demethylate H3 ’Lys-4’ nor ’Lys-79’ (492 aa)
Transcriptional co-repressor of MBF (MCB binding factor)-regulated gene expression; Nrm1p associates stably with promoters via MBF to repress transcription upon exit from G1 phase; Negative regulatory component of the MBF complex involved in cell-cycle-dependent transcription (249 aa)
