ROM2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ROM2" - GDP/GTP exchange factor 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

Gene Fusion
ROM2GDP/GTP exchange factor (GEF) for Rho1p and Rho2p; mutations are synthetically lethal with mutations in rom1, which also encodes a GEF; Stimulates the exchange of RHO1 GDP-bound form into GTP- bound form (1356 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
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)
O-glycosylated plasma membrane protein that acts as a sensor for cell wall integrity signaling and activates the pathway; interacts with Rom2p, a guanine nucleotide exchange factor for Rho1p, and with cell integrity pathway protein Zeo1p; Cell wall stress sensor. Involved in activation of a response that includes both stress-related increased chitin synthesis and the MPK1 mitogen-activated protein kinase cell integrity pathway. High-copy activator of the SKN7 transcription factor. Required during induction of MPK1 tyrosine phosphorylation under a variety of stress conditions. Required [...] (376 aa)
Sensor-transducer of the stress-activated PKC1-MPK1 kinase pathway; involved in maintenance of cell wall integrity; required for mitophagy; involved in organization of the actin cytoskeleton; secretory pathway Wsc1p is required for the arrest of sec /.../ response; Plays a role during G1 to regulate entering or exiting the cell cycle. Involved in stress responses. Has a role in cell wall integrity signaling. Activates ROM1 or ROM2 catalyzed guanine nucleotide exchange toward RHO1. Important regulator of the actin cytoskeleton rearrangements in conditions of cell wall expansion and memb [...] (378 aa)
Partially redundant sensor-transducer of the stress-activated PKC1-MPK1 signaling pathway involved in maintenance of cell wall integrity and recovery from heat shock; secretory pathway Wsc2p is required for the arrest of secretion response (503 aa)
Small 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)
Non-essential small GTPase of the Rho/Rac family of Ras-like proteins; involved in the establishment of cell polarity and in microtubule assembly (192 aa)
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)
Putative plasma membrane sensor, involved in cell integrity signaling and stress response during glucose starvation and oxidative stress; has structural and functional similarity to Mid2p; Involved in cell integrity signaling during vegetative growth at elevated temperature. Acts positively on the PKC1-MAPK pathway. Cell membrane sensor of oxidative stress in the cell integrity pathway upstream of PKC1. Required to transmit the oxidative signal to SLT2 and to restore the correct actin organization following oxidative stress. Multicopy suppressor of 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (GS) mutatio [...] (551 aa)
Mitogen-activated kinase kinase involved in protein kinase C signaling pathway that controls cell integrity; upon activation by Bck1p phosphorylates downstream target, Slt2p; functionally redundant with Mkk2p; Involved in a signal transduction pathway that play a role in yeast cell morphogenesis and cell growth. This pathway seems to start by SMP3; then involve the kinase PKC1 that may act on the BCK1 kinase that then phosphorylates MKK1 and MKK2 which themselves phosphorylate the MPK1 kinase (508 aa)
Partially redundant sensor-transducer of the stress-activated PKC1-MPK1 signaling pathway involved in maintenance of cell wall integrity; involved in the response to heat shock and other stressors; regulates 1,3-beta-glucan synthesis (556 aa)
