STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
TUS1Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) that modulates Rho1p activity; involved in the cell integrity signaling pathway; interacts with Rgl1p; localization of Tus1p to the bed neck is regulated by Rgl1p; multicopy suppressor of tor2 mutation and ypk1 ypk2 double mutation; potential Cdc28p substrate (1307 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)
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for Rho1p; mutations are synthetically lethal with mutations in rom2, which also encodes a GEP; ROM1 has a paralog, ROM2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Rho-GTPase-activating protein LRG1; GTPase-activating protein (GAP); contains Rho1p-specific GAP activity, interacting with activated forms of Rho1p; functions along with Sac7p as a negative regulator of the Pkc1p-mediated cell wall integrity signaling pathway; negative regulator of cell wall 1,3-beta-glucan biosynthesis; required for efficient cell fusion; contains a RhoGAP domain and three Lin-11-Isl1-Mec-3 (LIM) domains
GTP-binding protein RHO2; Non-essential small GTPase of the Rho/Rac family of Ras-like proteins; involved in the establishment of cell polarity and in microtubule assembly
Activator of C kinase protein 1; Protein that functions in the cell wall integrity pathway; functions upstream of Pkc1p; GFP-fusion protein expression is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS; non-tagged Ack1p is detected in purified mitochondria
Protein BNI1; Formin; polarisome component; nucleates the formation of linear actin filaments, involved in cell processes such as budding and mitotic spindle orientation which require the formation of polarized actin cables; recruited to the division site in a Glc7p/Ref2p dependent manner following release of Bnr1p; functionally redundant with BNR1
Guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for Rho1p and Rho2p; mutations are synthetically lethal with mutations in rom1, which also encodes a GEF; Rom2p localization to the bud surface is dependent on Ack1p; ROM2 has a paralog, ROM1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
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)
GTPase-activating protein SAC7; GTPase activating protein (GAP) for Rho1p; regulator of a Tor2p-mediated, Rho1p GTPase switch that controls organization of the actin cytoskeleton; negative regulator of the RHO1-PKC1-MAPK cell integrity (CWI) and membrane fluidity homeostasis signaling pathways; potential Cdc28p substrate; SAC7 has a paralog, BAG7, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Uncharacterized protein YPL066W; Regulator of Rho1p signaling, cofactor of Tus1p; required for the localization of Tus1p during all phases of cytokinesis; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the bud neck and cytoplasm; null mutant is viable and exhibits growth defect on a non-fermentable (respiratory) carbon source
