GAT2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"GAT2" - Protein containing GATA family zinc finger motifs 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

GAT2Protein containing GATA family zinc finger motifs; similar to Gln3p and Dal80p; expression repressed by leucine (560 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Glycerol-3-phosphate/dihydroxyacetone phosphate dual substrate-specific sn-1 acyltransferase located in lipid particles and the ER; involved in the stepwise acylation of glycerol-3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone in lipid biosynthesis; G-3-P/dihydroxyacetone phosphate dual substrate-specific sn-1 acyltransferase (743 aa)
Glycerol 3-phosphate/dihydroxyacetone phosphate dual substrate-specific sn-1 acyltransferase of the glycerolipid biosynthesis pathway, prefers 16-carbon fatty acids, similar to Gpt2p, gene is constitutively transcribed; G-3-P/dihydroxyacetone phosphate dual substrate-specific sn-1 acyltransferase (759 aa)
Diacylglycerol kinase, localized to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER); overproduction induces enlargement of ER-like membrane structures and suppresses a temperature-sensitive sly1 mutation; contains a CTP transferase domain; Involved in pre-tRNA splicing (By similarity). CTP- dependent diacylglycerol kinase that catalyzes the phosphorylation of diacylglycerol (DAG) to phosphatidate (PA). Controls phosphatidate levels at the nuclear envelope. Counteracts the activity of PAH1/SMP2. Involved in the resistance to nickel chloride and nalidixic acid. May be involved in vesicle trafficking betw [...] (290 aa)
MADS-box transcription factor, component of the protein kinase C-mediated MAP kinase pathway involved in the maintenance of cell integrity; phosphorylated and activated by the MAP-kinase Slt2p; May function as a transcription factor downstream of MPK1 that is subject to activation by the MPK1 mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway. Binds to the DNA sequence 5’- CTA[TA](4)TAG-3’. At least some RML1 target genes are involved in cell wall biosynthesis (676 aa)
MADS-box transcription factor involved in osmotic stress response; SMP1 has a paralog, RLM1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Transcription factor that controls part of the HOG1- mediated osmostress responses. Binds to the DNA sequence 5’- ACTACTA[TA](4)TAG-3’. Does not appear to function in the MPK1 pathway (452 aa)
General repressor of transcription, forms complex with Cyc8p, involved in the establishment of repressive chromatin structure through interactions with histones H3 and H4, appears to enhance expression of some genes; Acts as component of the CYC8-TUP1 corepressor complex which is involved in the repression of many genes in a wide variety of physiological processes including heme-regulated and catabolite repressed genes. May also be involved in the derepression of at least some target genes. The complex is recruited to target genes by interaction with DNA-bound transcriptional repressor [...] (713 aa)
Essential subunit of the COMPASS (Set1C) complex, which methylates histone H3 on lysine 4 and is required in transcriptional silencing near telomeres; WD40 beta propeller superfamily member and ortholog of mammalian WDR5; The COMPASS (Set1C) complex specifically mono-, di- and trimethylates histone H3 to form H3K4me1/2/3, which subsequently plays a role in telomere length maintenance and transcription elongation regulation (315 aa)
Serine/threonine MAP kinase; involved in regulating maintenance of cell wall integrity, progression through the cell cycle, and nuclear mRNA retention in heat shock; required for mitophagy and pexophagy; affects recruitment of mitochondria to the ph /.../re assembly site (PAS); regulated by the PKC1-mediated signaling pathway; 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 the BCK1 kinase that then phosphorylates MKK1 a [...] (484 aa)
Mitogen-activated serine/threonine protein kinase involved in mating; phosphoactivated by Ste7p; substrates include Ste12p, Far1p, Bni1p, Sst2p; inhibits invasive growth during mating by phosphorylating Tec1p, promoting its degradation; Together with closely related KSS1, FUS3 is the final kinase in the signal transduction cascade regulating activation/repression of the mating and filamentation pathways, induced by pheromone and nitrogen/carbon limitation, respectively. Phosphorylated FUS3 activates the mating but suppresses the filamentation pathway, whereas activated KSS1 activates b [...] (353 aa)
Ubiquitin, becomes conjugated to proteins, marking them for selective degradation via the ubiquitin-26S proteasome system; essential for the cellular stress response; encoded as a polyubiquitin precursor comprised of 5 head-to-tail repeats; Ubiquitin exists either covalently attached to another protein, or free (unanchored). When covalently bound, it is conjugated to target proteins via an isopeptide bond either as a monomer (monoubiquitin), a polymer linked via different Lys residues of the ubiquitin (polyubiquitin chains) or a linear polymer linked via the initiator Met of the ubiqui [...] (381 aa)
