ECM22 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ECM22" - Sterol regulatory element binding protein, regulates transcription of sterol biosynthetic genes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
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 each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

ECM22Sterol regulatory element binding protein, regulates transcription of sterol biosynthetic genes; contains Zn[2]-Cys[6] binuclear cluster; homologous to Upc2p; relocates from intracellular membranes to perinuclear foci on sterol depletion; Transcription factor involved in sterol uptake and regulation of sterol biosynthesis. Binds to sterol regulatory elements (SRE) with the consensus sequence 5’-TCGTATA-3’ present in ERG2 and ERG3 promoters and regulates transcription of ERG2 and ERG3 in response to sterol levels. Seems to be involved in activation of DAN2 and DAN3 cell wall mannoproteins (814 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
C-8 sterol isomerase, catalyzes the isomerization of the delta-8 double bond to the delta-7 position at an intermediate step in ergosterol biosynthesis; Catalyzes the reaction which results in unsaturation at C-7 in the B ring of sterols (222 aa)
Nuclear transcription factor with two Cys2-His2 zinc fingers; involved in repression of a subset of hypoxic genes by Rox1p, repression of several DAN/TIR genes during aerobic growth, and repression of ergosterol biosynthetic genes; can form the [MOT /.../ion; Transcription factor that affects the expression of a large set of genes. Recognizes and binds to the consensus sequence 5’-[CAT]AGG[TC]A-3’ in the promoter region. Plays a major role in the repression of a specific subset of hypoxic genes (e.g. ANB1, DAN1 and HEM13) under aerobic conditions. Acts synergistically with the transcri [...] (490 aa)
Elongase, involved in fatty acid and sphingolipid biosynthesis; synthesizes very long chain 20-26-carbon fatty acids from C18-CoA primers; involved in regulation of sphingolipid biosynthesis; Component of a microsomal membrane bound long-chain fatty acid elongation system, which produces the 20-26-carbon very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) from long-chain fatty acid precursors and is involved ceramide and inositol sphingolipid biosynthesis. Component of elongase III, which synthesizes 20-26- carbon fatty acids from 18-carbon-fatty acyl-CoA primers such as stearoyl-CoA by incorporation [...] (345 aa)
Mitochondrial ribosomal protein of the small subunit; MRP21 exhibits genetic interactions with mutations in the COX2 and COX3 mRNA 5’-untranslated leader sequences (177 aa)
Lanosterol 14-alpha-demethylase; catalyzes the C-14 demethylation of lanosterol to form 4,4’’-dimethyl cholesta-8,14,24-triene-3-beta-ol in the ergosterol biosynthesis pathway; member of the cytochrome P450 family; associated and coordinately regula /.../th the P450 reductase Ncp1p; Catalyzes C14-demethylation of lanosterol which is critical for ergosterol biosynthesis. It transforms lanosterol into 4,4’-dimethyl cholesta-8,14,24-triene-3-beta-ol (530 aa)
Component of the U4/U6-U5 snRNP complex, involved in the second catalytic step of splicing; mutations of human Prp8 cause retinitis pigmentosa; Functions as a scaffold that mediates the ordered assembly of spliceosomal proteins and snRNAs. Required for association of BRR2 with the spliceosomal U5 snRNP, and the subsequent assembly of the U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complex. Functions as scaffold that positions spliceosomal U2, U5 and U6 snRNAs at splice sites on pre-mRNA substrates, so that splicing can occur. Interacts with both the 5’ and the 3’ splice site, as well as the branch region. Has [...] (2413 aa)
Transcription factor that is activated by a MAPK signaling cascade; activates genes involved in mating or pseudohyphal/invasive growth pathways; cooperates with Tec1p transcription factor to regulate genes specific for invasive growth; Binds to the DNA sequence mediating pheromone induction (called the pheromone response element = PRE) which is found in the upstream control region of several a-, alpha- and haploid- specific genes. Involved in mating of haploids and in pseudohyphae formation in diploids (688 aa)
Delta(24)-sterol C-methyltransferase, converts zymosterol to fecosterol in the ergosterol biosynthetic pathway by methylating position C-24; localized to both lipid particles and mitochondrial outer membrane; Catalyzes the methyl transfer from S-adenosyl-methionine to the C-24 of zymosterol to form fecosterol (383 aa)
Heme-dependent repressor of hypoxic genes; contains an HMG domain that is responsible for DNA bending activity; Transcription factor that represses the expression of HEM13, COX5B, ANB1, CYC7 or AAC3 (hypoxic function). Binds to the DNA sequence 5’-RRRTAACAAGAG-3’ (368 aa)
C-5 sterol desaturase, catalyzes the introduction of a C-5(6) double bond into episterol, a precursor in ergosterol biosynthesis; mutants are viable, but cannot grow on non-fermentable carbon sources; Catalyzes the introduction of a C-5 double bond in the B ring of ergosterol. May contribute to the regulation of ergosterol biosynthesis (365 aa)
