STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
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:
a 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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

HMG1HMG-CoA reductase; catalyzes conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonate, which is a rate-limiting step in sterol biosynthesis; one of two isozymes; localizes to nuclear envelope; overproduction induces formation of karmellae; forms foci at nuclear periphery upon DNA replication stress; HMG1 has a paralog, HMG2, that arose from the whole genome duplication; human homolog HMGCR can complement yeast hmg1 mutant. (1054 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
HMG2
HMG-CoA reductase; converts HMG-CoA to mevalonate, a rate-limiting step in sterol biosynthesis; one of two isozymes; overproduction induces assembly of peripheral ER membrane arrays and short nuclear-associated membrane stacks; forms foci at nuclear periphery upon DNA replication stress; HMG2 has a paralog, HMG1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; human homolog HMGCR can complement yeast hmg2 mutant.
  
0.999
ERG13
3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) synthase; catalyzes the formation of HMG-CoA from acetyl-CoA and acetoacetyl-CoA; involved in the second step in mevalonate biosynthesis.
  
 
 0.999
ERG12
Mevalonate kinase; acts in the biosynthesis of isoprenoids and sterols, including ergosterol, from mevalonate; human MVK functionally complements the lethality of the erg12 null mutation.
  
 0.996
ERG9
Squalene synthase; Farnesyl-diphosphate farnesyl transferase (squalene synthase); joins two farnesyl pyrophosphate moieties to form squalene in the sterol biosynthesis pathway.
  
 
 0.963
ERG20
Farnesyl pyrophosphate synthetase; has both dimethylallyltranstransferase and geranyltranstransferase activities; catalyzes the formation of C15 farnesyl pyrophosphate units for isoprenoid and sterol biosynthesis.
  
 
 0.960
ERG1
Squalene epoxidase; catalyzes the epoxidation of squalene to 2,3-oxidosqualene; plays an essential role in the ergosterol-biosynthesis pathway and is the specific target of the antifungal drug terbinafine; human SQLE functionally complements the lethality of the erg1 null mutation.
   
  
 0.956
IDI1
Isopentenyl-diphosphate Delta-isomerase; Isopentenyl diphosphate:dimethylallyl diphosphate isomerase; catalyzes an essential activation step in the isoprenoid biosynthetic pathway; required for viability; isopentenyl diphosphate:dimethylallyl diphosphate isomerase is also known as IPP isomerase; Belongs to the IPP isomerase type 1 family.
 
  
 0.934
ERG8
Phosphomevalonate kinase; an essential cytosolic enzyme that acts in the biosynthesis of isoprenoids and sterols, including ergosterol, from mevalonate.
   
 
 0.925
BTS1
Geranylgeranyl diphosphate synthase (GGPS); increases the intracellular pool of geranylgeranyl diphosphate, suppressor of bet2 mutation that causes defective geranylgeranylation of small GTP-binding proteins that mediate vesicular traffic.
  
 
 0.923
ERG11
Lanosterol 14-alpha-demethylase; catalyzes C-14 demethylation of lanosterol to form 4,4''-dimethyl cholesta-8,14,24-triene-3-beta-ol in ergosterol biosynthesis pathway; transcriptionally down-regulated when ergosterol is in excess; member of cytochrome P450 family; associated and coordinately regulated with the P450 reductase Ncp1p; human CYP51A1 functionally complements the lethality of the erg11 null mutation.
