STRINGSTRING
SPT8 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SPT8" - Subunit of the SAGA transcriptional regulatory complex 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

SPT8Subunit of the SAGA transcriptional regulatory complex; not present in SAGA-like complex SLIK/SALSA; required for SAGA-mediated inhibition at some promoters; Required, directly or indirectly, for TATA-binding protein function at particular promoters. May promote a functional interaction between SPT3 and TATA-binding protein. Functions as a component of the transcription regulatory histone acetylation (HAT) complex SAGA. SAGA is involved in RNA polymerase II- dependent transcriptional regulation of approximately 10% of yeast genes. At the promoters, SAGA is required for recruitment of t [...] (602 aa)
