MME1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"MME1" - Predicted transporter of the mitochondrial inner membrane 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
MME1Predicted transporter of the mitochondrial inner membrane; has similarity to human mitochondrial ATP-Mg/Pi carriers; YMR166C is not an essential gene (368 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Mitochondrial inner membrane magnesium transporter, involved in maintenance of mitochondrial magnesium concentrations and membrane potential; indirectly affects splicing of group II introns; functionally and structurally related to Mrs2p; Mitochondrial inner membrane magnesium transporter required for mitochondrial magnesium homeostasis. Modulates the conductance of the MRS2 channel. Involved in the splicing of mRNA group II introns in mitochondria by affecting mitochondrial magnesium concentrations, which are critical for group II intron splicing (413 aa)
Mitochondrial inner membrane Mg(2+) channel, required for maintenance of intramitochondrial Mg(2+) concentrations at the correct level to support splicing of group II introns; High-conductance magnesium-selective channel that mediates the influx of magnesium into the mitochondrial matrix (PubMed-12628916, PubMed-17827224, PubMed-20653776, PubMed-23999289). Essential for the splicing of mRNA group II introns in mitochondria by affecting mitochondrial magnesium concentrations, which are critical for group II intron splicing. It also suppresses a variety of mitochondrial intron mutations [...] (470 aa)
Putative mitochondrial transport protein; null mutant is viable, exhibits decreased levels of chitin and normal resistance to calcofluor white (309 aa)
Carrier protein that exports citrate from and imports oxoglutarate into the mitochondrion, causing net export of NADPH reducing equivalents; also associates with mt nucleoids and has a role in replication and segregation of the mt genome; Mitochondrial antiporter which catalyzes the transport of citrate and oxoglutarate across the membrane. Also shows specificity for oxaloacetate, and to a lesser extent succinate and fumarate. Transports isocitrate, cis-aconitate and L-malate with very low efficiency. Does not show uniporter activity. Helps to maintain normal citrate levels and NADPH/N [...] (314 aa)
Dubious open reading frame unlikely to encode a protein, based on available experimental and comparative sequence data; partially overlaps ENT1/YDL161W, a verified gene involved in endocytosis and actin cortical patch assembly (118 aa)
