STRINGSTRING
EST1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"EST1" - TLC1 RNA-associated factor involved in telomere length regulation as recruitment subunit of telomerase 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

EST1TLC1 RNA-associated factor involved in telomere length regulation as recruitment subunit of telomerase; has G-quadruplex promoting activity that is required for telomere elongation; possible role in activating telomere-bound Est2p-TLC1-RNA; Directly involved in telomere replication. Associates with telomerase and during its interaction with CDC13, telomerase activity is promoted (699 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CDC13
Single stranded DNA-binding protein found at TG1-3 telomere G-tails; regulates telomere replication through recruitment of specific sub-complexes, but the essential function is telomere capping; Single-stranded telomeric DNA-binding protein that regulates telomere replication. Has a role in both positive and negative regulation. Promotes [TG(1-3)] strand lengthening via interaction with EST1. Promotes [C(1-3)A] strand re-synthesis by DNA polymerase alpha via interaction with POL1. Negatively regulates telomere elongation of the G strand via binding with STN1 thereby inhibiting telomera [...] (924 aa)

EST2
Reverse transcriptase subunit of the telomerase holoenzyme, essential for telomerase core catalytic activity, involved in other aspects of telomerase assembly and function; mutations in human homolog are associated with aplastic anemia; Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein enzyme essential for the replication of chromosome termini in most eukaryotes. It elongates telomeres. It is a reverse transcriptase that adds simple sequence repeats to chromosome ends by copying a template sequence within the RNA component of the enzyme (884 aa)
       
 
  0.958
EST3
Component of the telomerase holoenzyme, involved in telomere replication; Component of the telomerase complex involved in telomere replication. Stimulates RNA/DNA heteroduplex unwinding which favors the telomere replication by the telomerase (181 aa)

YKU70
Subunit of the telomeric Ku complex (Yku70p-Yku80p), involved in telomere length maintenance, structure and telomere position effect; relocates to sites of double-strand cleavage to promote nonhomologous end joining during DSB repair; Single-stranded DNA-dependent ATP-dependent helicase. Involved in non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) DNA double strand break repair. DNA-binding is sequence-independent but has a high affinity to nicks in double-stranded DNA and to the ends of duplex DNA. Binds to naturally occurring chromosomal ends, and therefore provides chromosomal end protection. Appe [...] (602 aa)

STN1
Telomere end-binding and capping protein, plays a key role with Pol12p in linking telomerase action with completion of lagging strand synthesis, and in a regulatory step required for telomere capping; Has a role in telomere length regulation and telomere end protection. Acts as an inhibitor of telomerase loading through its interaction with CDC13 (494 aa)

YKU80
Subunit of the telomeric Ku complex (Yku70p-Yku80p), involved in telomere length maintenance, structure and telomere position effect; relocates to sites of double-strand cleavage to promote nonhomologous end joining during DSB repair; Single-stranded DNA-dependent ATP-dependent helicase. Involved in non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) DNA double strand break repair. DNA-binding is sequence-independent but has a high affinity to nicks in double-stranded DNA and to the ends of duplex DNA.

TEN1
Protein that regulates telomeric length; protects telomeric ends in a complex with Cdc13p and Stn1p; Has a role in telomere length regulation and telomere end protection. Acts as an inhibitor of telomerase loading through its interaction with CDC13 (160 aa)

RAD52
Protein that stimulates strand exchange by facilitating Rad51p binding to single-stranded DNA; anneals complementary single-stranded DNA; involved in the repair of double-strand breaks in DNA during vegetative growth and meiosis; Involved in DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair and recombination. Promotes the annealing of complementary single- stranded DNA and by stimulation of the RAD51 recombinase (471 aa)

SIR3
Silencing protein that interacts with Sir2p and Sir4p, and histone H3 and H4 tails, to establish a transcriptionally silent chromatin state; required for spreading of silenced chromatin; recruited to chromatin through interaction with Rap1p; The proteins SIR1 through SIR4 are required for transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci, HML and HMR. The proteins SIR2 through SIR4 repress mulitple loci by modulating chromatin structure. Involves the compaction of chromatin fiber into a more condensed form (978 aa)

SIR4
Silent information regulator that, together with SIR2 and SIR3, is involved in assembly of silent chromatin domains at telomeres and the silent mating-type loci; potentially phosphorylated by Cdc28p; some alleles of SIR4 prolong lifespan; The proteins SIR1 through SIR4 are required for transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci, HML and HMR.
