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:
a 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:
RHO1 GEF localizing protein 1; 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.
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).
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).
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.
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.
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.
GTP-binding protein RHO4; Non-essential small GTPase; member of the Rho/Rac subfamily of Ras-like proteins; likely to be involved in the establishment of cell polarity; has long N-terminal extension that plays an important role in Rho4p function and is shared with Rho4 homologs in other yeasts and filamentous fungi.
Cytoplasmic inorganic pyrophosphatase (PPase); homodimer that catalyzes the rapid exchange of oxygens from Pi with water, highly expressed and essential for viability, active-site residues show identity to those from E. coli PPase.
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.
Cytokinesis protein 2; Protein that regulates actin cytoskeleton organization; required for cytokinesis, actin cable organization, and secretory vesicle trafficking; localized to bud neck; phosphorylated by Dbf2p; regulates actomyosin ring dynamics and septin localization; contains an SH3 domain; N terminus controls cell size and levels of actin cables, while C terminus controls actin cable organization via direct regulation of the formin Bnr1p.
