STRINGSTRING
SIR1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SIR1" - Protein involved in silencing at mating-type loci HML and HMR 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

SIR1Protein involved in silencing at mating-type loci HML and HMR; recruitment to silent chromatin requires interactions with Orc1p and with Sir4p, through a common Sir1p domain; binds to centromeric chromatin; Involved in the establishment, but not the maintenance, of heterochromatic silencing at the cryptic mating-type loci HMR and HML. Is recruited by interacting with the ORC1 subunit of the origin recognition complex (ORC), which binds to HML-I or HMR-E silencers, DNA elements that direct the formation of silent chromatin at the mating-type loci. Establishes transcriptional silencing b [...] (654 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
SIR4
Silent information regulator that, together with SIR2 and SIR3, is involved in assembly of silent chromatin domains at telomeres and the silent mating-type loci; potentially phosphorylated by Cdc28p; some alleles of SIR4 prolong lifespan; The proteins SIR1 through SIR4 are required for transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci, HML and HMR. The proteins SIR2 through SIR4 repress mulitple loci by modulating chromatin structure. Involves the compaction of chromatin fiber into a more condensed form (1358 aa)
       
  0.998
SIR3
Silencing protein that interacts with Sir2p and Sir4p, and histone H3 and H4 tails, to establish a transcriptionally silent chromatin state; required for spreading of silenced chromatin; recruited to chromatin through interaction with Rap1p; The proteins SIR1 through SIR4 are required for transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci, HML and HMR. The proteins SIR2 through SIR4 repress mulitple loci by modulating chromatin structure. Involves the compaction of chromatin fiber into a more condensed form (978 aa)

SIR2
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)
       
  0.997
ORC1
Largest subunit of the origin recognition complex, which directs DNA replication by binding to replication origins and is also involved in transcriptional silencing; exhibits ATPase activity; 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 (914 aa)
       
 
  0.986
HHF2
Histone H4, core histone protein required for chromatin assembly and chromosome function; one of two identical histone proteins (see also HHF1); contributes to telomeric silencing; N-terminal domain involved in maintaining genomic integrity; 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-trans [...] (103 aa)

CDC14
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)

SAS2
Histone acetyltransferase (HAT) catalytic subunit of the SAS complex (Sas2p-Sas4p-Sas5p), which acetylates free histones and nucleosomes and regulates transcriptional silencing; member of the MYSTacetyltransferase family; Histone acetyltransferase (HAT) subunit of the SAS complex, a multiprotein complex that acetylates ’Lys-16’ of histone H4 and ’Lys-14’ of histone H3. The SAS complex is however unable to acetylate nucleosomal histones. The complex is involved in transcriptional silencing at telomeres and at HML locus. Also involved in rDNA silencing and G0 control (338 aa)

NET1
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.
