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
RCE1Prenyl protein peptidase; Type II CAAX prenyl protease; involved in the proteolysis and maturation of Ras and the a-factor mating pheromone (315 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Protein-S-isoprenylcysteine O-methyltransferase; Farnesyl cysteine-carboxyl methyltransferase; mediates the carboxyl methylation step during C-terminal CAAX motif processing of a-factor and RAS proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum, localizes to the ER membrane; Belongs to the class VI-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Isoprenylcysteine carboxyl methyltransferase family
CAAX prenyl protease 1; Highly conserved zinc metalloprotease; functions in two steps of a-factor maturation, C-terminal CAAX proteolysis and the first step of N-terminal proteolytic processing; cleaves both isoprenylated and non-prenylated oligopeptides; contains multiple transmembrane spans; human homolog ZMPSTE24 implicated in mandibuloacral dysplasia (MAD), and can complement yeast null mutant
Protein farnesyltransferase/geranylgeranyltransferase type-1 subunit alpha; Alpha subunit of farnesyltransferase and geranylgeranyltransferase-I; farnesyltransferase (Ram2p-Ram1p heterodimer) catalyzes the addition of 15-carbon isoprenoid farnesyl to substrate proteins containing a CAAX consensus motif; type I geranylgeranyltransferase (Ram2p-Cdc43p heterodimer) catalyzes the addition of the 20-carbon isoprenoid geranylgeranyl to substrate proteins containing a CaaL consensus motif; required for membrane localization of Ras proteins and a-factor
Beta subunit of the CAAX farnesyltransferase (FTase); this complex prenylates the a-factor mating pheromone and Ras proteins; required for the membrane localization of Ras proteins and a-factor; homolog of the mammalian FTase beta subunit
A-factor-processing enzyme; Metalloprotease; involved in N-terminal processing of pro-a-factor to mature form; expressed in both haploids and diploids; one of two yeast homologs of human insulin-degrading enzyme (hIDE); homolog Axl1p is also involved in processing of pro-a-factor; Belongs to the peptidase M16 family
Putative protease AXL1; Haploid specific endoprotease of a-factor mating pheromone; performs one of two N-terminal cleavages during maturation of a-factor mating pheromone; required for axial budding pattern of haploid cells
Beta subunit of geranylgeranyltransferase type I; subunit of the Ram2p-Cdc43p heterodimer that catalyzes the geranylgeranylation of the cysteine residue in proteins containing a C-terminal CaaX sequence ending in Leu or Phe; has substrates important for morphogenesis
Ras-like protein 2; GTP-binding protein; regulates nitrogen starvation response, sporulation, and filamentous growth; farnesylation and palmitoylation required for activity and localization to plasma membrane; homolog of mammalian Ras proto-oncogenes; RAS2 has a paralog, RAS1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Ras family
Phospholipase/carboxylesterase; Acyl-protein thioesterase responsible for depalmitoylation of Gpa1p; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to both the cytoplasm and nucleus and is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS; Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. AB hydrolase 2 family
Mating pheromone alpha-factor, made by alpha cells; interacts with mating type a cells to induce cell cycle arrest and other responses leading to mating; also encoded by MF(ALPHA)2, although MF(ALPHA)1 produces most alpha-factor; binds copper(II) ions
