STRINGSTRING
CDC42 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"CDC42" - Small rho-like GTPase, essential for establishment and maintenance of cell polarity 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

CDC42Small rho-like GTPase, essential for establishment and maintenance of cell polarity; mutants have defects in the organization of actin and septins; Involved in development of cell polarity during the cell division cycle, and essential for bud emergence. Affects signaling in the pheromone-response pathway through the STE20 protein kinase. Negatively regulated by the GTPase-activating proteins RGA1, BEM3, and BEM4 (191 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
STE20
Cdc42p-activated signal transducing kinase of the PAK (p21-activated kinase) family; involved in pheromone response, pseudohyphal/invasive growth, vacuole inheritance, down-regulation of sterol uptake; GBB motif binds Ste4p; MAP4K component of the MAPK pathway required for the mating pheromone response, haploid invasive growth and diploid pseudohyphal development. Links the pheromone response G-protein beta gamma subunits to downstream signaling components. Needed for mating in haploid cells, induction of a mating-specific gene FUS1, induction of mating-specific morphologies, and phero [...] (939 aa)

RDI1
Rho GDP dissociation inhibitor involved in the localization and regulation of Cdc42p and Rho1p; Regulates the GDP/GTP exchange reaction of the Rho proteins by inhibiting the dissociation of GDP from them, and the subsequent binding of GTP to them (202 aa)
     
  0.999
CLA4
Cdc42p-activated signal transducing kinase of the PAK (p21-activated kinase) family, along with Ste20p and Skm1p; involved in septin ring assembly, vacuole inheritance, cytokinesis, sterol uptake regulation; phosphorylates Cdc3p and Cdc10p; Involved in budding and cytokinesis (842 aa)
       
  0.999
BEM1
Protein containing SH3-domains, involved in establishing cell polarity and morphogenesis; functions as a scaffold protein for complexes that include Cdc24p, Ste5p, Ste20p, and Rsr1p; Necessary for cell polarization during vegetative growth. May link the cytoskeleton to morphogenic determinants on the cell surface (551 aa)
       
  0.999
CDC24
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF or GDP-release factor) for Cdc42p; required for polarity establishment and maintenance, and mutants have morphological defects in bud formation and shmooing; Promotes the exchange of CDC42-bound GDP by GTP. Controls the polarity of calmodulin, and the calcium regulatory process of bud emergence. CDC24 may be involved in the initial selection and organization of the budding site (854 aa)
       
  0.998
MYO2
One of two type V myosin motors (along with MYO4) involved in actin-based transport of cargos; required for the polarized delivery of secretory vesicles, the vacuole, late Golgi elements, peroxisomes, and the mitotic spindle; Myosin heavy chain that is required for the cell cycle- regulated transport of various organelles and proteins for their segregation. Functions by binding with its tail domain to receptor proteins on organelles and exerting force with its N-terminal motor domain against actin filaments, thereby transporting its cargo along polarized actin cables. Essential for the [...] (1574 aa)

IQG1
Essential protein required for determination of budding pattern, promotes localization of axial markers Bud4p and Cdc12p and functionally interacts with Sec3p, localizes to the contractile ring during anaphase, member of the IQGAP family; Required for the assembly and the contraction of the actomyosin ring at the bud neck during cytokinesis. Seems to be involved in additional tasks during cell division like axial bud- site selection and targeted secretion by recruiting the spatial landmark BUD4, the septin CDC12 and the secretion landmark SEC3 to the bud neck. May be regulated by calci [...] (1495 aa)

BNI1
Formin, nucleates the formation of linear actin filaments, involved in cell processes such as budding and mitotic spindle orientation which require the formation of polarized actin cables, functionally redundant with BNR1; Required for the assembly of F-actin structures, such as actin cables and stress fibers. Nucleates actin filaments. Binds to the barbed end of the actin filament and acts as leaky capper, slowing both polymerization and depolymerization. Protects the growing actin fiber from tight capping proteins and so increases the time of elongation and the total amount of F-acti [...] (1953 aa)
       
  0.995
BEM3
Rho GTPase activating protein (RhoGAP) involved in control of the cytoskeleton organization; targets the essential Rho-GTPase Cdc42p, which controls establishment and maintenance of cell polarity, including bud-site assembly; GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for CDC42 and less efficiently for RHO1. Negative regulator of the pheromone-response pathway through the STE20 protein kinase (1128 aa)
       
  0.994
SKM1
Member of the PAK family of serine/threonine protein kinases with similarity to Ste20p and Cla4p; involved in down-regulation of sterol uptake; proposed to be a downstream effector of Cdc42p during polarized growth; May be involved in cellular signaling or cytoskeletal functions. May play a role in morphogenetic control (655 aa)
