INP2 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"INP2" - Peroxisome-specific receptor important for peroxisome inheritance 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

Gene Fusion
INP2Peroxisome-specific receptor important for peroxisome inheritance; co-fractionates with peroxisome membranes and co-localizes with peroxisomes in vivo; physically interacts with the myosin V motor Myo2p; INP2 is not an essential gene; Required for peroxisome inheritance. Acts as the peroxisome-specific receptor for the myosin V motor MYO2 (705 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
One of two type V myosin motors (along with MYO4) involved in actin-based transport of cargos; required for the polarized delivery of secretory vesicles, the vacuole, late Golgi elements, peroxisomes, and the mitotic spindle; Myosin heavy chain that is required for the cell cycle- regulated transport of various organelles and proteins for their segregation. Functions by binding with its tail domain to receptor proteins on organelles and exerting force with its N-terminal motor domain against actin filaments, thereby transporting its cargo along polarized actin cables. Essential for the [...] (1574 aa)
Peripheral membrane protein of peroxisomes involved in peroxisomal inheritance; recruitment to peroxisomes is mediated by interaction with Pex3p at the peroxisomal membrane; Required for peroxisome inheritance (420 aa)
Chaperone and import receptor for newly-synthesized class I peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs), binds PMPs in the cytoplasm and delivers them to the peroxisome for subsequent insertion into the peroxisomal membrane; Required for proper post-translational import and stabilization of peroxisomal membrane proteins (PMPs). Acts as a cytosolic import receptor for PMPs and delivers them to the docking factor PEX3 at the peroxisomal membrane for subsequent insertion into the membrane. Acts as a chaperone in stabilizing or maintaining PMPs in the lipid bilayer. Directs PEX17, a peripheral co [...] (342 aa)
Peroxisomal membrane protein required for medium-chain fatty acid oxidation and peroxisome proliferation, possibly by inducing membrane curvature; localization regulated by phosphorylation; transcription regulated by Adr1p and Pip2p-Oaf1p; Involved in peroxisomal proliferation. Promotes peroxisome division and biogenesis (236 aa)
Peripheral peroxisomal membrane peroxin required for the regulation of peroxisome size and maintenance, recruits GTPase Rho1p to peroxisomes, induced by oleate, interacts with homologous protein Pex27p; Required for regulation of peroxisome size and maintenance. Has a role in the import of peroxisomal matrix proteins. Imports RHO1 into the peroxisome. Also promotes peroxisome division and biogenesis (394 aa)
Peripheral peroxisomal membrane protein involved in controlling peroxisome size and number, interacts with homologous protein Pex25p; Required for regulation of peroxisome size and number. Also promotes peroxisome division and biogenesis (376 aa)
Essential nucleolar protein, putative DEAD-box RNA helicase required for maintenance of M1 dsRNA virus; involved in biogenesis of large (60S) ribosomal subunits; ATP-binding RNA helicase involved in the biogenesis of 60S ribosomal subunits and is required for the normal formation of 25S and 5.8S rRNAs. Required for the maintenance of dsRNA killer plasmid (773 aa)
Peroxisomal membrane protein (PMP) required for proper localization and stability of PMPs; anchors peroxisome retention factor Inp1p at the peroxisomal membrane; interacts with Pex19p; Involved in peroxisome biosynthesis. May function as a receptor protein. Lack of this protein causes the peroxisomal- deficient phenotype and mislocalization in the cytosol of peroxisomal matrix proteins (441 aa)
Phosphoprotein involved in vacuole inheritance; degraded in late M phase of the cell cycle; acts as a vacuole-specific receptor for myosin Myo2p; Vacuole-specific MYO2 receptor required for vacuole inheritance. Binds simultaneously to MYO2 and to VAC8, a vacuolar membrane protein, forming a transport complex which moves the attached vacuole membrane along actin cables into the bud. Once the vacuole arrives in the bud, VAC17 is degraded, depositing the vacuole in its correct location (423 aa)
Phosphorylated protein of the mitochondrial outer membrane, localizes only to mitochondria of the bud; interacts with Myo2p to mediate mitochondrial distribution to buds; mRNA is targeted to the bud via the transport system involving She2p; Involved in the guiding of mitochondrial tubules to the bud tip during cell division (491 aa)
