STRING protein interaction network
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 to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology
Your Input:
Gene Fusion
YMR253CUncharacterized membrane protein YMR253C; Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm in a punctate pattern; YMR253C is not an essential gene (414 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Uncharacterized membrane protein YLR050C; Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum; YLR050C is not an essential gene
Vacuolar membrane protein YPL162C; Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the membrane of vacuole with cell cycle-correlated morphology
Nucleolar complex-associated protein 3; Subunit of a nuclear complex with Noc2p and pre-replicative complexes; the Noc2p-Noc3p complex binds to 66S ribosomal precursors to mediate their maturation and intranuclear transport; binds to chromatin at active replication origins, and is required for pre-RC formation and maintenance during DNA replication licensing
Serine/threonine-protein kinase Haspin homolog ALK1; Protein kinase; along with its paralog, ALK2, required for proper spindle positioning and nuclear segregation following mitotic arrest, proper organization of cell polarity factors in mitosis, proper localization of formins and polarity factors, and survival in cells that activate spindle assembly checkpoint; phosphorylated in response to DNA damage; ALK1 has a paralog, ALK2, that arose from the whole genome duplication; similar to mammalian haspins
Cell wall-associated protein involved in export of acetylated sterols; member of the CAP protein superfamily (cysteine-rich secretory proteins (CRISP), antigen 5, and pathogenesis related 1 proteins); role in mating efficiency; expression of full-length transcript is daughter cell-specific; in response to alpha factor, a short transcript starting at +452 is expressed and the long form is repressed by Ste12p
Protein TOS6; Glycosylphosphatidylinositol-dependent cell wall protein; expression is periodic and decreases in respone to ergosterol perturbation or upon entry into stationary phase; depletion increases resistance to lactic acid
1-phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate phosphodiesterase 1; Phospholipase C; hydrolyzes phosphatidylinositol 4,5-biphosphate (PIP2) to generate the signaling molecules inositol 1,4,5-triphosphate (IP3) and 1,2-diacylglycerol (DAG); involved in regulating many cellular processes; Plc1p and inositol polyphosphates are required for acetyl-CoA homeostasis which regulates global histone acetylation
Transcription initiation factor tfiid subunit 2; TFIID subunit (150 kDa); involved in RNA polymerase II transcription initiation
Protein with similarity to heat shock transcription factors; overexpression suppresses the pseudohyphal filamentation defect of a diploid mep1 mep2 homozygous null mutant; HMS2 has a paralog, SKN7, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Nuclear encoded protein needed for splicing of mitochondrial intron; required for efficient splicing of mitochondrial COX1 aI5beta intron; mss18 mutations block cleavage of 5' exon - intron junction; phenotype of intronless strain suggests additional functions
