ELO3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"ELO3" - Elongase, involved in fatty acid and sphingolipid biosynthesis 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

ELO3Elongase, involved in fatty acid and sphingolipid biosynthesis; synthesizes very long chain 20-26-carbon fatty acids from C18-CoA primers; involved in regulation of sphingolipid biosynthesis; Component of a microsomal membrane bound long-chain fatty acid elongation system, which produces the 20-26-carbon very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) from long-chain fatty acid precursors and is involved ceramide and inositol sphingolipid biosynthesis. Component of elongase III, which synthesizes 20-26- carbon fatty acids from 18-carbon-fatty acyl-CoA primers such as stearoyl-CoA by incorporation [...] (345 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Fatty acid elongase, involved in sphingolipid biosynthesis; acts on fatty acids of up to 24 carbons in length; mutations have regulatory effects on 1,3-beta-glucan synthase, vacuolar ATPase, and the secretory pathway; Component of a microsomal membrane-bound long-chain fatty acid elongation system, which produces the 20-26-carbon very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) from long-chain fatty acid precursors and is involved ceramide and inositol sphingolipid biosynthesis. Component of elongase II, which elongates 16-18 carbon fatty acyl-CoAs such as palmitoyl-CoA and stearoyl-CoA to 20-22-ca [...] (347 aa)
Microsomal beta-keto-reductase; contains oleate response element (ORE) sequence in the promoter region; mutants exhibit reduced VLCFA synthesis, accumulate high levels of dihydrosphingosine, phytosphingosine and medium-chain ceramides; Component of the microsomal membrane bound fatty acid elongation system, which produces the 26-carbon very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) from palmitate. Catalyzes the reduction of the 3-ketoacyl-CoA intermediate that is formed in each cycle of fatty acid elongation. VLCFAs serve as precursors for ceramide and sphingolipids (347 aa)
Component of serine palmitoyltransferase, responsible along with Lcb2p for the first committed step in sphingolipid synthesis, which is the condensation of serine with palmitoyl-CoA to form 3-ketosphinganine; Component of serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT), which catalyzes the committed step in the synthesis of sphingolipids, the condensation of serine with palmitoyl CoA to form the long chain base 3-ketosphinganine (558 aa)
Enoyl reductase that catalyzes the last step in each cycle of very long chain fatty acid elongation, localizes to the ER, highly enriched in a structure marking nuclear-vacuolar junctions, coimmunoprecipitates with elongases Fen1p and Sur4p; Catalyzes the last of the four reactions of the long- chain fatty acids elongation cycle. This endoplasmic reticulum- bound enzymatic process, allows the addition of 2 carbons to the chain of long- and very long-chain fatty acids/VLCFAs per cycle. This enzyme reduces the trans-2,3-enoyl-CoA fatty acid intermediate to an acyl-CoA that can be further [...] (310 aa)
C-8 sterol isomerase, catalyzes the isomerization of the delta-8 double bond to the delta-7 position at an intermediate step in ergosterol biosynthesis; Catalyzes the reaction which results in unsaturation at C-7 in the B ring of sterols (222 aa)
Phosphatidylinositol-ceramide phosphoinositol transferase (IPC synthase), required for sphingolipid synthesis; can mutate to confer aureobasidin A resistance; Catalytic component of the inositol phosphorylceramide synthase which catalyzes the addition of a phosphorylinositol group onto ceramide to form inositol phosphorylceramide, an essential step in sphingolipid biosynthesis (401 aa)
Amphiphysin-like lipid raft protein; interacts with Rvs167p and regulates polarization of the actin cytoskeleton, endocytosis, cell polarity, cell fusion and viability following starvation or osmotic stress; Component of a cytoskeletal structure that is required for the formation of endocytic vesicles at the plasma membrane level (265 aa)
Golgi GDP-mannose transporter; regulates Golgi function and glycosylation in Golgi; Involved in the import of GDP-mannose from the cytoplasm into the Golgi lumen. Defective copy causes severe glycosylation defect and abnormal retention of soluble endoplasmic reticulum proteins. Involved in vanadate sensitivity (337 aa)
Integral plasma membrane protein involved in the synthesis of the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) core structure; mutations affect cell wall integrity; Ethanolamine phosphate transferase involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchor biosynthesis. Transfers ethanolamine phosphate to the GPI second mannose. Although not essential, addition of ethanolamine phosphate to the second mannose plays an important role in cell separation via the GPI- based modification of daughter-specific proteins (830 aa)
Elongase I, medium-chain acyl elongase, catalyzes carboxy-terminal elongation of unsaturated C12-C16 fatty acyl-CoAs to C16-C18 fatty acids; Component of a microsomal membrane bound medium-chain fatty acid elongation system, which extends medium-chain-length fatty acids to long-chain fatty acids. Component of elongase I, which extends 12-16-carbon fatty acyl-CoAs such as lauroyl-CoA to 14-18-carbon fatty acids by incorporation of malonyl-CoA (310 aa)
