YPK2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"YPK2" - Protein kinase with similarity to serine/threonine protein kinase Ypk1p 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

Mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase kinase kinase acting in the protein kinase C signaling pathway, which controls cell integrity; upon activation by Pkc1p phosphorylates downstream kinases Mkk1p and Mkk2p; Serine/threonine protein kinase involved in a signal transduction pathway that plays a role in yeast cell morphogenesis and cell growth. This pathway seems to start by SMP3; then involve the kinase PKC1 that may act on this kinase. BCK1 probably phosphorylates MKK1 and MKK2 which themselves phosphorylate the MPK1 kinase (1478 aa)
Protein kinase with similarity to mammalian PDK1 and yeast Pkh1p/Phk2p; yeast Pkh1p and Pkh2p are two redundant upstream activators of Pkc1p; identified as a multicopy suppressor of a pkh1 pkh2 double mutant; Serine/threonine-protein kinase which may phosphorylate the same targets substrates as PKH1 and PKH2, 2 upstream activators of PKC1 (898 aa)
Subunit of TORC2 (Tor2p-Lst8p-Avo1-Avo2-Tsc11p-Bit61p), a membrane-associated complex that regulates actin cytoskeletal dynamics during polarized growth and cell wall integrity; involved in sphingolipid metabolism; contains a RasGEFN domain; Essential component of TORC2, which regulates cell cycle-dependent polarization of the actin-cytoskeleton and cell wall integrity. TORC2 controls polarity of the actin cytoskeleton, which is required for orienting the secretory pathway toward discrete growth sites, via the RHO1/PKC1/MAPK cell integrity pathway. TSC11 may exert its functions through [...] (1430 aa)
Hsp90 chaperone required for pheromone signaling and negative regulation of Hsf1p; docks with Tom70p for mitochondrial preprotein delivery; promotes telomerase DNA binding and nucleotide addition; interacts with Cns1p, Cpr6p, Cpr7p, Sti1p; Molecular chaperone that promotes the maturation, structural maintenance and proper regulation of specific target proteins involved in cell cycle control and signal transduction.
