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
CHS1Chitin synthase I; requires activation from zymogenic form in order to catalyze the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin; required for repairing the chitin septum during cytokinesis; transcription activated by mating factor (1131 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Udp-n-acetylglucosamine/udp-n-acetylgalactosamine diphosphorylase; UDP-N-acetylglucosamine pyrophosphorylase; catalyzes the formation of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc), which is important in cell wall biosynthesis, protein N-glycosylation, and GPI anchor biosynthesis; protein abundance increases in response to DNA replication stress; Belongs to the UDPGP type 1 family
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; contains overlapping di-leucine and di-acidic signals that mediate, respectively, intracellular trafficking by AP-1 and trafficking to plasma membrane by exomer complex; requires AP-3 complex for its intracellular retention
Palmitoyltransferase with autoacylation activity; required for palmitoylation of amino acid permeases containing a C-terminal Phe-Trp-Cys site; required for modification of Chs3p; member of the DHHC family of putative palmitoyltransferases
Chitin synthase II; catalyzes transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to chitin upon activation of zymogenic form; required for chitin synthesis in the primary septum during cytokinesis; localization regulated by Cdk1p during mitosis; phosphorylation by Dbf2p kinase regulates its dynamics and chitin synthesis during cytokinesis
Chitin synthase export chaperone; Protein of unknown function; may be involved in chitin biosynthesis by regulation of Chs3p export from the ER; relocalizes from bud neck to ER upon DNA replication stress
Protein SKT5; Activator of Chs3p (chitin synthase III) during vegetative growth; recruits Chs3p to the bud neck via interaction with Bni4p; SKT5 has a paralog, SHC1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Chitin biosynthesis protein CHS6; Member of the ChAPs (Chs5p-Arf1p-binding proteins) family; part of the exomer complex that mediates export of specific cargo proteins, including Chs3p, from the Golgi to the plasma membrane; primary component of the Chs5/6 complex that binds directly to membranes; CHS6 has a paralog, BCH2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Glutamine--fructose-6-phosphate aminotransferase [isomerizing]; Glutamine-fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase; catalyzes the formation of glucosamine-6-P and glutamate from fructose-6-P and glutamine in the first step of chitin biosynthesis; GFA1 has a paralogous region, comprising ORFs YMR084W-YMR085W, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Chitin biosynthesis protein CHS5; Component of the exomer complex; the exomer which also contains Csh6p, Bch1p, Bch2p, and Bud7, is involved in the export of select proteins, such as chitin synthase Chs3p, from the Golgi to the plasma membrane; interacts selectively with the activated, GTP-bound form of Arf1p; Chs5p is the only protein with a BRCT domain that is not localized to the nucleus
1,3-beta-glucan synthase component FKS1; 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; FKS1 has a paralog, GSC2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
