GAS1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"GAS1" - Beta-1,3-glucanosyltransferase, required for cell wall assembly and also has a role in transcriptional silencing 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
GAS1Beta-1,3-glucanosyltransferase, required for cell wall assembly and also has a role in transcriptional silencing; localizes to the cell surface via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor; also found at the nuclear periphery; Splits internally a 1,3-beta-glucan molecule and transfers the newly generated reducing end (the donor) to the non- reducing end of another 1,3-beta-glucan molecule (the acceptor) forming a 1,3-beta linkage, resulting in the elongation of 1,3- beta-glucan chains in the cell wall. Involved in cell wall biosynthesis and morphogenesis (559 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Chitin transglycosylase; functions in the transfer of chitin to beta(1-6) and beta(1-3) glucans in the cell wall; similar to and functionally redundant with Crh1; glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored protein localized to bud neck; Probable glycosidase that plays a role in cell wall architecture. Required for the transfer of chitin to 1,6-beta- glucan in the cell wall (467 aa)
Plasma membrane H+-ATPase, pumps protons out of the cell; major regulator of cytoplasmic pH and plasma membrane potential; P2-type ATPase; Hsp30p plays a role in Pma1p regulation; interactions with Std1p appear to propagate [GAR+]; The plasma membrane ATPase of plants and fungi is a hydrogen ion pump. The proton gradient it generates drives the active transport of nutrients by H(+)-symport. The resulting external acidification and/or internal alkinization may mediate growth responses (918 aa)
Chitin synthase III, catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin; required for synthesis of the majority of cell wall chitin, the chitin ring during bud emergence, and spore wall chitosan; Appears to be responsible for the synthesis of the majority of the chitin found in the cell wall periphery. It is involved in the synthesis of the chitin ring that forms in the cell wall just before bud emergence. This ring remains at the base of the bud as the bud grows and ultimately forms part of the bud scar marking the division site on the mother cell. Also catalyzes the syn [...] (1165 aa)
Type II integral membrane protein required for beta-1,6 glucan biosynthesis; putative beta-glucan synthase; localizes to the ER, plasma membrane, sites of polarized growth and secretory vesicles; functionally redundant with Skn1p; Involved in the synthesis of (1->6)- and (1->3)-beta-D- glucan polymers of the yeast cell wall in vivo. It is required for full activity of beta-glucan synthase in vitro. May be involved in the maturation and transport of cell wall proteins (CWP) to the cell wall. May act as a transglucosidase and contribute to the construction of a protein-bound glucan-struc [...] (720 aa)
Component of the p24 complex; binds to GPI anchor proteins and mediates their efficient transport from the ER to the Golgi; integral membrane protein that associates with endoplasmic reticulum-derived COPII-coated vesicles; Constituent of COPII-coated endoplasmic reticulum- derived transport vesicles. Required for efficient transport of a subset of secretory proteins to the Golgi (203 aa)
DNA photolyase involved in photoreactivation, repairs pyrimidine dimers in the presence of visible light; induced by DNA damage; regulated by transcriptional repressor Rph1p; Involved in repair of UV radiation-induced DNA damage. Catalyzes the light-dependent monomerization (300-600 nm) of cyclobutyl pyrimidine dimers (in cis-syn configuration), which are formed between adjacent bases on the same DNA strand upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation (565 aa)
GPI-anchored protein of unknown function, has a possible role in apical bud growth; GPI-anchoring on the plasma membrane crucial to function; phosphorylated in mitochondria; similar to Sps2p and Pst1p; Required for proper cell wall integrity and for the correct assembly of the mannoprotein outer layer of the cell wall. Important for apical bud growth (429 aa)
Activator of Chs3p (chitin synthase III), recruits Chs3p to the bud neck via interaction with Bni4p; has similarity to Shc1p, which activates Chs3p during sporulation; Possible role in protoplast regeneration and killer toxin of K.lactis (PGKL) resistance (696 aa)
Protein of unknown function; contains transmembrane domains; involved in secretion of proteins that lack classical secretory signal sequences; component of the detergent-insoluble glycolipid-enriched complexes (DIGs); Involved in membrane organization. Required for the formation of membrane compartments of CAN1 (MCCs), localization of CAN1 at the MCCs and subsequent invagination of the plasma membrane at the MCCs sites. Involved in eisosome organization and might act as a sensor of sphingolipids that regulates plasma membrane function. Involved in a novel pathway of export of proteins [...] (173 aa)
Catalytic subunit of 1,3-beta-D-glucan synthase, functionally redundant with alternate catalytic subunit Gsc2p; binds to regulatory subunit Rho1p; involved in cell wall synthesis and maintenance; localizes to sites of cell wall remodeling; Alternate catalytic subunit of the 1,3-beta-glucan synthase (GS). Synthesizes 1,3-beta-glucan, a major structural component of the yeast cell wall. Involved in cell wall synthesis, maintenance and cell wall remodeling (1876 aa)
