STRINGSTRING
SPA2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SPA2" - Component of the polarisome, which functions in actin cytoskeletal organization during polarized growth 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

SPA2Component of the polarisome, which functions in actin cytoskeletal organization during polarized growth; acts as a scaffold for Mkk1p and Mpk1p cell wall integrity signaling components; potential Cdc28p substrate; Involved in pheromone-induced morphogenesis and efficient mating, perhaps as a cytoskeletal protein (1466 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
PEA2
Coiled-coil polarisome protein required for polarized morphogenesis, cell fusion, and low affinity Ca2+ influx; forms polarisome complex with Bni1p, Bud6p, and Spa2p; localizes to sites of polarized growth; Localized to sites of polarized growth and is required for efficient mating and bipolar budding (420 aa)
       
  0.999
BNI1
Formin, nucleates the formation of linear actin filaments, involved in cell processes such as budding and mitotic spindle orientation which require the formation of polarized actin cables, functionally redundant with BNR1; Required for the assembly of F-actin structures, such as actin cables and stress fibers. Nucleates actin filaments. Binds to the barbed end of the actin filament and acts as leaky capper, slowing both polymerization and depolymerization. Protects the growing actin fiber from tight capping proteins and so increases the time of elongation and the total amount of F-acti [...] (1953 aa)

BUD6
Actin- and formin-interacting protein; stimulates actin cable nucleation by recruiting actin monomers to Bni1p; involved in polarized cell growth; isolated as bipolar budding mutant; potential Cdc28p substrate; Not essential for mitotic growth but is necessary for normal morphogenesis. Involved in the organization and/or function of the actin cytoskeleton (788 aa)
       
  0.996
MKK1
Mitogen-activated kinase kinase involved in protein kinase C signaling pathway that controls cell integrity; upon activation by Bck1p phosphorylates downstream target, Slt2p; functionally redundant with Mkk2p; Involved in a signal transduction pathway that play a role in yeast cell morphogenesis and cell growth. This pathway seems to start by SMP3; then involve the kinase PKC1 that may act on the BCK1 kinase that then phosphorylates MKK1 and MKK2 which themselves phosphorylate the MPK1 kinase (508 aa)
       
  0.965
SLT2
Serine/threonine MAP kinase; involved in regulating maintenance of cell wall integrity, progression through the cell cycle, and nuclear mRNA retention in heat shock; required for mitophagy and pexophagy; affects recruitment of mitochondria to the ph /.../re assembly site (PAS); regulated by the PKC1-mediated signaling pathway; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in a signal transduction pathway that plays a role in yeast cell morphogenesis and cell growth. This pathway seems to start by SMP3; then involve the kinase PKC1 that may act the BCK1 kinase that then phosphorylates MKK1 a [...] (484 aa)
       
  0.955
MSB3
GTPase-activating protein for Sec4p and several other Rab GTPases, regulates exocytosis via its action on Sec4p, also required for proper actin organization; similar to Msb4p; both Msb3p and Msb4p localize to sites of polarized growth; Regulates exocytosis by functioning as a GAP for SEC4. Stimulates specifically the GTPase activity of YPT6. Also required for efficient polarization of the actin patches (633 aa)
       
  0.955
MSB4
GTPase-activating protein of the Ras superfamily that acts primarily on Sec4p, localizes to the bud site and bud tip, has similarity to Msb3p; msb3 msb4 double mutation causes defects in secretion and actin organization; Regulates exocytosis by functioning as a GAP for SEC4. Also required for efficient polarization of the actin patches (492 aa)

RHO1
GTP-binding protein of the rho subfamily of Ras-like proteins, involved in establishment of cell polarity; regulates protein kinase C (Pkc1p) and the cell wall synthesizing enzyme 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (Fks1p and Gsc2p); Acts as a central regulator in the cell wall integrity signaling pathway, which is regulated by the cell cycle and in response to various types of cell wall stress. Integrates signals from different cell surface sensors, and activates a set of effectors, regulating processes including beta-glucan synthesis at the site of wall remodeling, gene expression related to c [...] (209 aa)

MYO2
One of two type V myosin motors (along with MYO4) involved in actin-based transport of cargos; required for the polarized delivery of secretory vesicles, the vacuole, late Golgi elements, peroxisomes, and the mitotic spindle; Myosin heavy chain that is required for the cell cycle- regulated transport of various organelles and proteins for their segregation. Functions by binding with its tail domain to receptor proteins on organelles and exerting force with its N-terminal motor domain against actin filaments, thereby transporting its cargo along polarized actin cables. Essential for the [...] (1574 aa)

MKK2
Mitogen-activated kinase kinase involved in protein kinase C signaling pathway that controls cell integrity; upon activation by Bck1p phosphorylates downstream target, Slt2p; functionally redundant with Mkk1p; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in a signal transduction pathway that plays a role in yeast cell morphogenesis and cell growth.
