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
YDJ1Mitochondrial protein import protein MAS5; Type I HSP40 co-chaperone; involved in regulation of HSP90 and HSP70 functions; acts as an adaptor that helps Rsp5p recognize cytosolic misfolded proteins for ubiquitination after heat shock; critical for determining cell size at Start as a function of growth rate; involved in protein translocation across membranes; member of the DnaJ family; chimeric protein in which human p58IPK J domain replaces yeast Ydj1p J domain can complement yeast ydj1 mutant (409 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Heat shock protein SSA1; ATPase involved in protein folding and NLS-directed nuclear transport; member of HSP70 family; required for ubiquitin-dependent degradation of short-lived proteins; forms chaperone complex with Ydj1p; localized to nucleus, cytoplasm, cell wall; 98% identical to paralog Ssa2p with different functional specificity in propagation of yeast [URE3] prions, vacuolar-mediated degradations of gluconeogenesis enzymes; general targeting factor of Hsp104p to prion fibrils
Disaggregase; heat shock protein that cooperates with Ydj1p (Hsp40) and Ssa1p (Hsp70) to refold and reactivate previously denatured, aggregated proteins; responsive to stresses including: heat, ethanol, and sodium arsenite; involved in [PSI+] propagation; protein becomes more abundant and forms cytoplasmic foci in response to DNA replication stress; potentiated Hsp104p variants decrease TDP-43 proteotoxicity by eliminating its cytoplasmic aggregation; Belongs to the ClpA/ClpB family
Heat shock protein STI1; Hsp90 cochaperone; regulates spatial organization of amyloid-like proteins in the cytosol, thereby buffering the proteotoxicity caused by amyloid-like proteins; interacts with the Ssa group of the cytosolic Hsp70 chaperones and activates Ssa1p ATPase activity; interacts with Hsp90 chaperones and inhibits their ATPase activity; homolog of mammalian Hop
ATPase component of heat shock protein Hsp90 chaperone complex; serves as nucleotide exchange factor to load ATP onto the SSA class of cytosolic Hsp70s; plays a role in prion propagation and determining prion variants; binds unfolded proteins; member of Hsp110 subclass of HSP70 proteins; deletion results in spindle elongation in S phase; SSE1 has a paralog, SSE2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
ATP-dependent molecular chaperone HSP82; Hsp90 chaperone; redundant in function with Hsc82p; required for pheromone signaling, negative regulation of Hsf1p; docks with Tom70p for mitochondrial preprotein delivery; promotes telomerase DNA binding, nucleotide addition; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress; contains two acid-rich unstructured regions that promote solubility of chaperone-substrate complexes; HSP82 has a paralog, HSC82, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Heat shock protein SSA2; HSP70 family ATP-binding protein; involved in protein folding, vacuolar import of proteins; required for ubiquitin-dependent degradation of short-lived proteins; associated with chaperonin-containing T-complex; 98% identical to paralog Ssa1p with distinct functional specificity in propagation of yeast [URE3] prions and vacuolar-mediated degradation of gluconeogenesis enzymes; binds tRNA, has role in tRNA nuclear import during starvation
ATP-dependent molecular chaperone HSC82; Cytoplasmic chaperone of the Hsp90 family; plays a role in determining prion variants; redundant in function and nearly identical with Hsp82p, and together they are essential; expressed constitutively at 10-fold higher basal levels than HSP82 and induced 2-3 fold by heat shock; contains two acid-rich unstructured regions that promote the solubility of chaperone-substrate complexes; HSC82 has a paralog, HSP82, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Heat shock protein SSA3; ATPase involved in protein folding and the response to stress; plays a role in SRP-dependent cotranslational protein-membrane targeting and translocation; member of the heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) family; localized to the cytoplasm; SSA3 has a paralog, SSA4, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Small glutamine-rich tetratricopeptide repeat-containing protein 2; Glutamine-rich cytoplasmic cochaperone; serves as a scaffold bringing together Get4, Get5p, and other TRC complex members that are required to mediate posttranslational insertion of tail-anchored proteins into the ER membrane; interacts with the prion domain of Sup35p; amyloid sensor; plays a role in targeting chaperones to prion aggregates; similar to human cochaperone SGT; forms cytoplasmic foci upon DNA replication stress
Zuotin; Ribosome-associated chaperone; zuotin functions in ribosome biogenesis and as a chaperone for nascent polypeptide chains in partnership with Ssz1p and SSb1/2; contains a DnaJ domain and functions as a J-protein partner for Ssb1p and Ssb2p; human gene DNAJC2 can partially complement yeast zuo1 null mutant
