STRINGSTRING
SIR3 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"SIR3" - Silencing protein that interacts with Sir2p and Sir4p, and histone H3 and H4 tails, to establish a transcriptionally silent chromatin state 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

SIR3Silencing protein that interacts with Sir2p and Sir4p, and histone H3 and H4 tails, to establish a transcriptionally silent chromatin state; required for spreading of silenced chromatin; recruited to chromatin through interaction with Rap1p; The proteins SIR1 through SIR4 are required for transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci, HML and HMR. The proteins SIR2 through SIR4 repress mulitple loci by modulating chromatin structure. Involves the compaction of chromatin fiber into a more condensed form (978 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
CDC6
Essential ATP-binding protein required for DNA replication, component of the pre-replicative complex (pre-RC) which requires ORC to associate with chromatin and is in turn required for Mcm2-7p DNA association; homologous to S. pombe Cdc18p; Plays a crucial role in forming the pre-replicative complexes. Interacts with the origin recognition complex (ORC) and MCM2-7 helicase complex leading to the linking of those complexes and loading of the replicative helicase MCM2-7 onto the pre- replicative complexes. Required for the initiation of DNA replication and then actively participates in t [...] (513 aa)

ORC5
Subunit of the origin recognition complex, which directs DNA replication by binding to replication origins and is also involved in transcriptional silencing; Component of the origin recognition complex (ORC) that binds origins of replication. It has a role in both chromosomal replication and mating type transcriptional silencing. Binds to the ARS consensus sequence (ACS) of origins of replication. This subunit is a candidate for the mediation of ATP-dependent binding of ORC to origins. May also be a substrate targeting component of a cullin-RING-based E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase comple [...] (479 aa)

SIR4
Silent information regulator that, together with SIR2 and SIR3, is involved in assembly of silent chromatin domains at telomeres and the silent mating-type loci; potentially phosphorylated by Cdc28p; some alleles of SIR4 prolong lifespan; The proteins SIR1 through SIR4 are required for transcriptional repression of the silent mating type loci, HML and HMR. The proteins SIR2 through SIR4 repress mulitple loci by modulating chromatin structure. Involves the compaction of chromatin fiber into a more condensed form (1358 aa)

ORC4
Subunit of the origin recognition complex, which directs DNA replication by binding to replication origins and is also involved in transcriptional silencing; Component of the origin recognition complex (ORC) that binds origins of replication.

SIR2
Conserved NAD+ dependent histone deacetylase of the Sirtuin family involved in regulation of lifespan; plays roles in silencing at HML, HMR, telomeres, and the rDNA locus; negatively regulates initiation of DNA replication; NAD-dependent deacetylase, which participates in a wide range of cellular events including chromosome silencing, chromosome segregation, DNA recombination and the determination of life span. Involved in transcriptional repression of the silent mating-type loci HML and HMR and telomeric silencing via its association with SIR3 and SIR4. Plays a central role in ribosom [...] (562 aa)

ORC2
Subunit of the origin recognition complex, which directs DNA replication by binding to replication origins and is also involved in transcriptional silencing; interacts with Spp1p and with trimethylated histone H3; phosphorylated by Cdc28p; Component of the origin recognition complex (ORC) that binds origins of replication. It has a role in both chromosomal replication and mating type transcriptional silencing. Binds to the ARS consensus sequence (ACS) of origins of replication (620 aa)

HHF2
Histone H4, core histone protein required for chromatin assembly and chromosome function; one of two identical histone proteins (see also HHF1); contributes to telomeric silencing; N-terminal domain involved in maintaining genomic integrity; Core component of nucleosome. Nucleosomes wrap and compact DNA into chromatin, limiting DNA accessibility to the cellular machineries which require DNA as a template. Histones thereby play a central role in transcription regulation, DNA repair, DNA replication and chromosomal stability. DNA accessibility is regulated via a complex set of post-trans [...] (103 aa)

Protein involved in silencing at mating-type loci HML and HMR; recruitment to silent chromatin requires interactions with Orc1p and with Sir4p, through a common Sir1p domain; binds to centromeric chromatin; Involved in the establishment, but not the maintenance, of heterochromatic silencing at the cryptic mating-type loci HMR and HML.
