STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

Score
LAM6Membrane-anchored lipid-binding protein LAM6; Sterol transporter that transfers sterols between membranes; may regulate and coordinate formation of contact sites between organelles; localizes to ER-mitochondrial contact sites in a Tom70p- and Tom71p-dependent manner; mitochondrial localization requires GRAM domain; also localizes to ER-vacuole contact sites, in a Vac8p-dependent manner; has GRAM and StART-like (VASt) domains; one of six StART-like domain-containing proteins in yeast; conserved across eukaryotes; Belongs to the YSP2 family. (693 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
VAC8
Vacuolar protein 8; Phosphorylated and palmitoylated vacuolar membrane protein; interacts with Atg13p, required for the cytoplasm-to-vacuole targeting (Cvt) pathway; interacts with Nvj1p to form nucleus-vacuole junctions.
    
 
 0.987
TOM71
Protein TOM71; Mitochondrial outer membrane protein; probable minor component of the TOM (translocase of outer membrane) complex responsible for recognition and import of mitochondrially directed proteins; TOM71 has a paralog, TOM70, that arose from the whole genome duplication.
    
 
 0.969
TOM70
Mitochondrial import receptor subunit TOM70; Component of the TOM (translocase of outer membrane) complex; involved in the recognition and initial import steps for all mitochondrially directed proteins; acts as a receptor for incoming precursor proteins; TOM70 has a paralog, TOM71, that arose from the whole genome duplication.
    
 
 0.963
MDM34
Mitochondrial distribution and morphology protein 34; Mitochondrial component of the ERMES complex; links the ER to mitochondria and may promote inter-organellar calcium and phospholipid exchange as well as coordinating mitochondrial DNA replication and growth; required for mitophagy; ERMES complex is often co-localized with peroxisomes and with concentrated areas of pyruvate dehydrogenase.
    
 
 0.867
GEM1
Outer mitochondrial membrane GTPase, subunit of the ERMES complex; potential regulatory subunit of the ERMES complex that links the ER to mitochondria and may promote inter-organellar calcium and phospholipid exchange as well as coordinating mitochondrial DNA replication and growth; cells lacking Gem1p contain collapsed, globular, or grape-like mitochondria; ortholog of metazoan Miro GTPases.
    
 
 0.854
MDM10
Mitochondrial distribution and morphology protein 10; Subunit of both the ERMES and the SAM complex; component of ERMES complex which acts as a molecular tether between the mitochondria and the ER, necessary for efficient phospholipid exchange between organelles and for mitophagy; SAM/TOB complex component that functions in the assembly of outer membrane beta-barrel proteins; involved in mitochondrial inheritance and morphology; ERMES complex is often co-localized with peroxisomes and concentrated areas of pyruvate dehydrogenase; Belongs to the MDM10 family.
    
 
 0.837
NPC2
Phosphatidylglycerol/phosphatidylinositol transfer protein; Sterol transport protein and functional homolog of human NPC2/He1; human NPC2 is a cholesterol-binding protein whose deficiency causes Niemann-Pick type C2 disease involving retention of cholesterol in lysosomes; yeast NPC2 can complement mutations in human NPC2; Belongs to the NPC2 family.
      
 0.831
MDM12
Mitochondrial distribution and morphology protein 12; Mitochondrial outer membrane protein, ERMES complex subunit; required for transmission of mitochondria to daughter cells; required for mitophagy; may influence import and assembly of outer membrane beta-barrel proteins; ERMES complex is often co-localized with peroxisomes and with concentrated areas of pyruvate dehydrogenase; Belongs to the MDM12 family.
    
 
 0.819
LAM1
Membrane-anchored lipid-binding protein LAM1; Putative sterol transfer protein; localizes to puncta in the cortical ER; probable role in retrograde transport of sterols from the plasma membrane to the ER; one of six StART-like domain-containing proteins in yeast that may be involved in sterol transfer between intracellular membranes; conserved across eukaryotes; contains GRAM, StART-like (VASt) and two PH-like domains; Belongs to the SIP3 family.
   
  
 0.811
SIP3
Membrane-anchored lipid-binding protein SIP3; Putative sterol transfer protein; has a probable role in retrograde transport of sterols from the plasma membrane to the ER; co-localizes to puncta in the cortical ER with Ysp2p; contains GRAM, StART-like (VASt) and two PH-like domains; one of 6 StART-like domain-containing proteins in yeast that may be involved in sterol transfer between intracellular membranes; conserved across eukaryotes; previously identified as a transcription cofactor that interacts with DNA-bound Snf1p.
