STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
YPS3Aspartic proteinase yapsin-3; Aspartic protease; member of the yapsin family of proteases involved in cell wall growth and maintenance; attached to the plasma membrane via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; Belongs to the peptidase A1 family (508 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Structural constituent of the cell wall; attached to the plasma membrane by a GPI-anchor; expression is upregulated in response to cell wall stress; null mutant is sensitive to the antifungal agent polyhexamethylene biguanide, resistant to zymolyase treatment and has increased chitin deposition
Cerevisin; Vacuolar proteinase B (yscB) with H3 N-terminal endopeptidase activity; serine protease of the subtilisin family; involved in protein degradation in the vacuole and required for full protein degradation during sporulation; activity inhibited by Pbi2p; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress; PRB1 has a paralog, YSP3, that arose from the whole genome duplication
DNA damage-inducible v-SNARE binding protein; role in suppression of protein secretion; may play a role in S-phase checkpoint control; has ubiquitin-associated (UBA), ubiquitin-like (UBL), and retroviral-like proteinase (RVP) domains
Aspartic proteinase 3; Aspartic protease; hyperglycosylated member of the yapsin family of proteases, attached to the plasma membrane via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; involved in nutrient limitation-induced cleavage of the extracellular inhibitory domain of signaling mucin Msb2p, resulting in activation of the filamentous growth MAPK pathway; involved with other yapsins in the cell wall integrity response; role in KEX2-independent processing of the alpha factor precursor
Signaling mucin MSB2; Mucin family member involved in various signaling pathways; functions as osmosensor in the Sho1p-mediated HOG pathway; functions in Cdc42p- and MAP kinase-dependent filamentous growth signaling pathway; processed into secreted and cell-associated forms by aspartyl protease Yps1p; potential Cdc28p substrate
Increased recombination centers protein 22; Protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion localizes to the ER; YEL001C is non-essential; null mutant displays increased levels of spontaneous Rad52p foci; Belongs to the IRC22 family
Cell wall protein that contains a putative GPI-attachment site; secreted by regenerating protoplasts; up-regulated by activation of the cell integrity pathway, as mediated by Rlm1p; upregulated by cell wall damage via disruption of FKS1; PST1 has a paralog, ECM33, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the SPS2 family
O-glycosylated covalently-bound cell wall protein; required for cell wall stability; expression is cell cycle regulated, peaking in M/G1 and also subject to regulation by the cell integrity pathway; coding sequence contains length polymorphisms in different strains; PIR3 has a paralog, HSP150, that arose from the whole genome duplication
GPI-anchored cell wall protein of unknown function; induced in response to cell wall damaging agents and by mutations in genes involved in cell wall biogenesis; sequence similarity to YBR162C/TOS1, a covalently bound cell wall protein; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress; Belongs to the PGA52 family
Yapsin-5; Protein with similarity to GPI-anchored aspartic proteases; such proteases are Yap1p and Yap3p; mCherry fusion protein localizes to the vacuole; Belongs to the peptidase A1 family
