STRINGSTRING
CKI1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CKI1" - Choline kinase, catalyzing the first step in phosphatidylcholine synthesis via the CDP-choline (Kennedy pathway) 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

CKI1Choline kinase, catalyzing the first step in phosphatidylcholine synthesis via the CDP-choline (Kennedy pathway); exhibits some ethanolamine kinase activity contributing to phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis via the CDP-ethanolamine pathway; Responsible for phosphatidylcholine synthesis via the CDP-choline pathway. Also exhibits ethanolamine kinase activity but at 14% efficiency compared with choline (582 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
PCT1
Cholinephosphate cytidylyltransferase, also known as CTP-phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase, rate-determining enzyme of the CDP-choline pathway for phosphatidylcholine synthesis, inhibited by Sec14p, activated upon lipid-binding (424 aa)

EKI1
Ethanolamine kinase, primarily responsible for phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis via the CDP-ethanolamine pathway; exhibits some choline kinase activity, thus contributing to phosphatidylcholine synthesis via the CDP-choline pathway; Catalyzes the committed step of phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis via the CDP-ethanolamine pathway. Also exhibits choline kinase activity but its preferred substrate is ethanolamine (534 aa)

ECT1
Ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase, catalyzes the second step of phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis; involved in the maintenance of plasma membrane; similar to mammalian CTP- phosphocholine cytidylyl-transferases; Ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase which catalyzes the second step of phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis. Involved in the maintenance of plasma membrane and required for proper sporulation (323 aa)

GDE1
Glycerophosphocholine (GroPCho) phosphodiesterase; hydrolyzes GroPCho to choline and glycerolphosphate, for use as a phosphate source and as a precursor for phosphocholine synthesis; may interact with ribosomes; Glycerophosphocholine glycerophosphodiesterase responsible for the hydrolysis of intracellular glycerophosphocholine into glycerol-phosphate and choline. The choline is used for phosphatidyl-choline synthesis. Required for utilization of glycerophosphocholine as phosphate source (1223 aa)
     
 
  0.922
PKC1
Protein serine/threonine kinase essential for cell wall remodeling during growth; localized to sites of polarized growth and the mother-daughter bud neck; homolog of the alpha, beta, and gamma isoforms of mammalian protein kinase C (PKC); Required for cell growth and for the G2->M transition of the cell division cycle. Mediates a protein kinase cascade; it activates BCK1 which itself activates MKK1/MKK2 (1151 aa)
       
 
  0.912
CPT1
Cholinephosphotransferase, required for phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis and for inositol-dependent regulation of EPT1 transcription; Catalyzes the final step in the CDP-choline route leading to phosphatidylcholin (PC). Preferentially uses CDP- monomethylethanolamine as aminoalcohol substrate. Shows highest activity toward di- and mono-unsaturated diacylglycerol species as lipid substrates. The CDP-choline pathway only contributes to net PC synthesis if exogenous choline is present. In its absence, this pathway recycles choline from PC turnover and may contribute to maintaining the pro [...] (393 aa)
