VAC7 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"VAC7" - Integral vacuolar membrane protein involved in vacuole inheritance and morphology in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
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:
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
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

VAC7Integral vacuolar membrane protein involved in vacuole inheritance and morphology; activates Fab1p kinase activity under basal conditions and also after hyperosmotic shock; The PI(3,5)P2 regulatory complex regulates both the synthesis and turnover of phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,5)P2). Positively regulates FAB1 kinase activity. Major activator of FAB1 during hyperosmotic shock and can elevate levels of PtdIns(3,5)P2 in the absence of VAC14 and FIG4. Directly involved in vacuolar membrane scission. Required for normal vacuole acidification, inheritance and morphology (1165 aa)
