STRINGSTRING
EST2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"EST2" - Reverse transcriptase subunit of the telomerase holoenzyme, essential for telomerase core catalytic activity, involved in other aspects of telomerase assembly and function 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

EST2Reverse 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)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
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)

PXR1
Essential protein involved in rRNA and snoRNA maturation; competes with TLC1 RNA for binding to Est2p, suggesting a role in negative regulation of telomerase; human homolog inhibits telomerase; contains a G-patch RNA interacting domain; Involved in rRNA-processing at A0, A1 and A2 sites through its action in U18 and U24 snoRNA 3’-end final trimming. Negative regulator of telomerase through competition for binding to EST2 with TLC1 (271 aa)

CBF5
Pseudouridine synthase catalytic subunit of box H/ACA small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein particles (snoRNPs), acts on both large and small rRNAs and on snRNA U2; mutations in human ortholog dyskerin cause the disorder dyskeratosis congenita; Plays a central role in ribosomal RNA processing. Probable catalytic subunit of H/ACA small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein (H/ACA snoRNP) complex, which catalyzes pseudouridylation of rRNA. This involves the isomerization of uridine such that the ribose is subsequently attached to C5, instead of the normal N1. Pseudouridine (’psi’) residues may serve t [...] (483 aa)

EST1
TLC1 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.

RAD50
Subunit of MRX complex, with Mre11p and Xrs2p, involved in processing double-strand DNA breaks in vegetative cells, initiation of meiotic DSBs, telomere maintenance, and nonhomologous end joining; Involved in DNA double-strand break repair (DSBR). The rad50/mre11 complex possesses single-strand endonuclease activity and ATP-dependent double-strand-specific exonuclease activity. Rad50 provides ATP-dependent control of mre11 by unwinding and/or repositioning DNA ends into the mre11 active site (1312 aa)

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.

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)
