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
NSG2Protein involved in regulation of sterol biosynthesis; specifically stabilizes Hmg2p, one of two HMG-CoA isoenzymes that catalyze the rate-limiting step in sterol biosynthesis; homolog of mammalian INSIG proteins; NSG2 has a paralog, NSG1, that arose from the whole genome duplication (299 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
P24 family protein alpha; Protein with similarity to Emp24p and Erv25p; member of the p24 family involved in ER to Golgi transport
Uncharacterized membrane protein YDR090C; Putative protein of unknown function
Uncharacterized protein YFR016C; Protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm and bud; interacts with Spa2p; YFR016C is not an essential gene
AN1-type zinc finger protein, effector of proteotoxic stress response; stress-inducible transcriptional target of Rpn4p; induced by nitrogen limitation, weak acid, misfolded proteins; short-lived protein, degraded by proteasome; may protect cells from trivalent metalloid induced proteotoxicity; contains PACE promoter element; ortholog of human AIRAP, which stimulates proteasome activity in response to arsenic; protein abundance increases under DNA replication stress
UPF0655 protein YCR015C; Protein required for cold tolerance; involved in phosphate uptake; YCR015C is not an essential gene; Belongs to the UPF0655 family
HMG-CoA reductase; converts HMG-CoA to mevalonate, a rate-limiting step in sterol biosynthesis; one of two isozymes; overproduction induces assembly of peripheral ER membrane arrays and short nuclear-associated membrane stacks; forms foci at nuclear periphery upon DNA replication stress; HMG2 has a paralog, HMG1, that arose from the whole genome duplication; human homolog HMGCR can complement yeast hmg2 mutant
Uncharacterized protein YMR196W; Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm; YMR196W is not an essential gene
WD repeat-containing protein YPL247C; Putative protein of unknown function; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus; similar to the petunia WD repeat protein an11; overexpression causes a cell cycle delay or arrest
Member of conserved ER transmembrane complex; required for efficient folding of proteins in the ER; null mutant displays induction of the unfolded protein response; homologous to worm ZK616.6/EMC-4 and fly CG11137; mutation is functionally complemented by human EMC4
Uncharacterized protein YMR295C; Protein of unknown function that associates with ribosomes; green fluorescent protein (GFP)-fusion protein localizes to the cell periphery and bud; not an essential gene; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress; YMR295C has a paralog, YGR273C, that arose from the whole genome duplication
