STRINGSTRING
FKS1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"FKS1" - Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase, functionally redundant with alternate catalytic subunit Gsc2p 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

FKS1Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase, functionally redundant with alternate catalytic subunit Gsc2p; binds to regulatory subunit Rho1p; involved in cell wall synthesis and maintenance; localizes to sites of cell wall remodeling; Alternate catalytic subunit of the 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (GS). Synthesizes 1,3-beta-glucan, a major structural component of the yeast cell wall. Involved in cell wall synthesis, maintenance and cell wall remodeling (1876 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
RHO1
GTP-binding protein of the rho subfamily of Ras-like proteins, involved in establishment of cell polarity; regulates protein kinase C (Pkc1p) and the cell wall synthesizing enzyme 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (Fks1p and Gsc2p); Acts as a central regulator in the cell wall integrity signaling pathway, which is regulated by the cell cycle and in response to various types of cell wall stress. Integrates signals from different cell surface sensors, and activates a set of effectors, regulating processes including beta-glucan synthesis at the site of wall remodeling, gene expression related to c [...] (209 aa)

GSC2
Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-glucan synthase, involved in formation of the inner layer of the spore wall; activity positively regulated by Rho1p and negatively by Smk1p; has similarity to an alternate catalytic subunit, Fks1p (Gsc1p); Alternate catalytic subunit of the 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (GS). Synthesizes 1,3-beta-glucan, a major structural component of the yeast cell wall. Required for spore wall assembly. Negative regulation of activity by SMK1 is important for spore wall deposition. Activity is positively regulated by RHO1 (1895 aa)

FKS3
Protein involved in spore wall assembly, has similarity to 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase catalytic subunits Fks1p and Gsc2p; the authentic, non-tagged protein is detected in highly purified mitochondria in high-throughput studies; Required for spore wall assembly (1785 aa)
       
0.973
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)

EXG1
Major exo-1,3-beta-glucanase of the cell wall, involved in cell wall beta-glucan assembly; exists as three differentially glycosylated isoenzymes; Glucanases possibly play a role in cell expansion during growth, in cell-cell fusion during mating, and in spore release during sporulation. This enzyme hydrolyzes both 1,3-beta- and 1,6- beta-linkages and even has beta-glucosidase activity. It could also function biosynthetically as a transglycosylase (448 aa)
     
 
  0.951
BGL2
Endo-beta-1,3-glucanase, major protein of the cell wall, involved in cell wall maintenance; Glucanases possibly play a role in cell expansion during growth, in cell-cell fusion during mating, and in spore release during sporulation. This enzyme may be involved in beta-glucan degradation and also function biosynthetically as a transglycosylase (313 aa)

MNN10
Subunit of a Golgi mannosyltransferase complex also containing Anp1p, Mnn9p, Mnn11p, and Hoc1p that mediates elongation of the polysaccharide mannan backbone; membrane protein of the mannosyltransferase family; Required for polarized growth and efficient budding (393 aa)

EXG2
Exo-1,3-beta-glucanase, involved in cell wall beta-glucan assembly; may be anchored to the plasma membrane via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor (562 aa)

SLT2
Serine/threonine MAP kinase; involved in regulating maintenance of cell wall integrity, progression through the cell cycle, and nuclear mRNA retention in heat shock; required for mitophagy and pexophagy; affects recruitment of mitochondria to the ph /.../re assembly site (PAS); regulated by the PKC1-mediated signaling pathway; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in a signal transduction pathway that plays a role in yeast cell morphogenesis and cell growth. This pathway seems to start by SMP3; then involve the kinase PKC1 that may act the BCK1 kinase that then phosphorylates MKK1 a [...] (484 aa)

CHS3
Chitin synthase III, catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin; required for synthesis of the majority of cell wall chitin, the chitin ring during bud emergence, and spore wall chitosan; Appears to be responsible for the synthesis of the majority of the chitin found in the cell wall periphery. It is involved in the synthesis of the chitin ring that forms in the cell wall just before bud emergence. This ring remains at the base of the bud as the bud grows and ultimately forms part of the bud scar marking the division site on the mother cell. Also catalyzes the syn [...] (1165 aa)
